When we take moments to stop and fully be present, to really see, almost for the first time, what is all around us, it becomes tremendously apparent just how abundant we really are.
I've been meditating a lot lately, and more than that, attempting to take as many moments of presence throughout the day as possible. I wouldn't be the first one to say it, but it's pretty incredible how the more we bring conscious awareness to the forefront of our attention, all the insignificant, mind-made dramas just seem to dissolve.
We are a part of something pretty damn incredible. The life that we are, the form that we play with, the beauty that surrounds us. Sometimes we forget this. Sometimes we get caught up in stuff. Stuff that doesn't matter. It really doesn't matter. Nothing really matters.
Let this be a gentle reminder to look around. What abundance can you find around you? What is good in your life? It can be as simple as having gratitude for the ability to take a breath of fresh air. Usually, it's the small things that make all the difference, that create the most inner space.
For me, at the moment, I feel most alive, most present, in the place I now call home. Nature. The ocean. Staring into its magnificence, in awe, eyes wide open.
