You've probably heard that before some time or another. Just be in the moment. Sounds easy doesn't it? But if one looks closely it really isn't that easy to do. I mean its easy enough to tell yourself Ok I'm gonna just stay in this moment and enjoy for awhile but after a few moments at best we usually find our minds once again filled with chatter about what happened yesterday or what we are planning on doing tomorrow. And as soon as that happens we are no longer "in the present moment". Instead we have crossed the threshold and entered our minds either into the past or the future. But in reality all we truly do have is this "one eternal moment" and if we can find out how to stay in the moment more often we will surely find our lives more fullfilling and a lot less stressful. We all know we cannot change the past. No matter how much we wish we could we know it is not possible yet we spend so much time thinking of the past and usually beating ourselves up for it! And if we are not thinking of the past we are usually thinking of the future. And as I see it there really is no future its only an illusion, cause when tomorrow does come it isnt the future it is the "NOW" that 1 Eternal moment. I know just  how "hard" it can be to quiet the mind and enter that state of grace where th only thing thought of is the moment we find ourselves but it can be done. Give it a try and just let your mind be free of the past and the "future" for once and truly learn to "BE" and just let your soul and mind be absorbed in the "NOW" I've had people tell me they have no time to be in the moment--there is too much too do- but I have to disagree. If you are reading this right now then you may be in the Moment and your mind completely on what it is you are reading. Whenyou get enrapted in a good movie or book you ten dto be in the moment. So dont tell me you dont have the time to try cause you do if you really want to.And hopefully when you do you will find it to be such a respite form life s troubles and stress you will be sure to take a moment every day to just "be" My hope is that all of you will find the same peace I have found in my own soul by doing this on a regular basis. I leave you now with hopes of peace, love, joy, and understanding to each of you. "HUGS" to all

It is so extremely difficult in today's world for any of us to be really true to ourselves.More often than not we bend and alter our own true desires so we can make others happy along the way.Most of these changes we make for others we do in love as a form of sacrifice to show the other one that we care enough to change and bend ourselves to accommodate their feelings. This is I believe very normal and even healthy in most regards but we must be careful that we dont give away all of our desires and hopes just to please others. Relationships call for the practice of give and take but it must be on a level playing field.If all we do is give give gi ve and give then we will surely one day find ourselves full of resentment toward the one or ones who we have been giving. We must learn to take some along the way and do what we need to do to feel we are fulfilling our mission here on earth.This game of give and take with others is often tricky and can be very upsetting.I believe we all must first take heed and listen to our own hearts as to what we should gi ve away and what we should keep for ourselves.Whatever your dreams are I do hope you will not let them go undiscovered because of what someone else wants or expects of you.Any thing your heart speaks to you to do then I would say do it and the rest be damned! As V. Manley Ayers states:"The individual's quest for divine satisfaction is the quivering of the compass needle, which is never still until it finds its North." I will leave you now with a thought from the Science of Mind which says; Let each of us resolve to be true to his(her) inner light, true to the truth as he (she) understands It." I hope all of you folks have a truly enlightening and peaceful week ahead which will bring forth much love and joy and goo dhealth to you and yours."HUGS" to all.

Hey before you abuse, criticize, and accuse  better walk a mile in my shoes
Now your whole world you see around you is just a reflection
And the law of commons says you're gonna reap just what you sow
I love those words from an old Joe South tune back in the 1970's. Those words were true then and remain true today.If only we could all see the world and its myriad illusions from each other's eyes for just a moment maybe then, just maybe we could have peace at last. Yes, I am a dreamer but I will still take a look at any others beliefs and try not to judge too harshly.I'm pretty sure most of us would love to  live in a world that is big enough for all different views so we could live in peace. I leave you all with hopes of love, peace, joy, and all good things for you and yours."HUGS"
