People aren’t looking for the meaning of life; they’re looking to feel more alive.
In order to sustain life, the heart cannot beat in the past nor can the lungs breath in the air from the future. This ever-present moment is when life is and when more life can be had. Yet most of us live in the past, replaying events, how it felt, what roles we or they had, and the shoulda-woulda-coulda’s. This is not where life is and yet is where the majority of our thoughts live.
By noticing and being the observer of our own thoughts and behavior, we can create new habits and hone our ability to be present in each moment. Meditation or yoga are great ways to foster this skill. When we set the intention of observing our world right now, we can be more fully in it.
