One reason I love photographs is the precious present is captured.
I sat down on the couch to take a little break in the sun, which we haven’t seen much of for some time. The bright light came streaming in. I relaxed and stretched out and soon the kitty, Gobbles, who is quite large and long, stretched out on my shoulder and back, purring loudly. Then Hana’s dog, Lola, stretched out on my legs. Within moments we were all sunbathing, and I received a full blown reiki treatment from our pets. In those moments I felt pure peace and comfort. Pure relaxation in the sun.
One of my favorite lyrics to a popular song is “a moment in the Soul will last forever.” Since I was in my beingness, or soul, in that moment, I can draw on that experience over and over because I was in the precious present. Pure delight in the moment can be revisited by memory.
Time is funny that way; it is a paradox. Linear time is a mental construct. Real time is multidimensional, and when it intersects with your inner being becomes presence.
“The precious present allows Presence to bubble up.” —Kudos, 7 spirit Dolphins 🐬
In a book by that name that came out in the ’80s, “The Precious Present,” the students of a master spiritual teacher were at his bedside as he was near passing. He had requested some chocolate cake. They asked him: “Master, you have attained great wisdom in your life. What would you like to tell us?” He replied, “This cake is delicious.”
Eckhart Tolle, one of my favorite spiritual teachers, is on a world tour currently teaching these principles. He has many YouTube videos, which I watch, and each time I love the often long pause he takes before answering questions from the audience. He allows presence to well up and answer the question. I always am uplifted from his work. I hope you will take advantage of this bridge of love light readily available to all.
“Ask yourself: Is there joy, ease, and lightness in what I am doing? If there isn’t, then time is covering up the present moment, and life is perceived as a burden or a struggle.” —Eckhart Tolle
I included these photos of our resident neighborhood baby moose, as I never would have seen her if I hadn’t been present following my intuition. That is one of my favorite parts of synchronicity. I feel I have been given a gift by the Universe of Good.
Our mindfulness and practicing presence is not just for us. It joins us with All in Unity and Oneness—LOVE.
