Good Friday Morning Everyone on this, the Seventh Day of August, 2009
Here is today’s quotation for the August – Abundance Abounds – Daily Project.
The Power of the Present Moment
“Eckhart Tolle, the author of the Power of Now, recommends that we try to always BE in the moment. Because when we are fully present in the now, we are not having negative or distracting thoughts.
For example, when you are totally absorbed in the beauty of a flower, noticing every detail of the stem and leaves, captivated by the exquisite colors and textures, intoxicated by the sweet fragrance and aroma, your mind is only there. You and the flower are one, in a kind of bliss state. I have done this with many flowers and they have spoken to me.
It can be the same for anything that we are doing, even folding the laundry. When we are so enthralled with that one experience, those negative thoughts really can’t get in. The illusion of time no longer exists, it appears to stand still, and we seem to have forever.”

*** Today, practice being in the moment. Take time to breathe deeply and become fully conscious of what you are thinking and/or doing. And if you are focusing on something that is really not serving your best interests, just let it go and come back into this moment. This moment is all you ever really have anyway. Take time to enjoy it.
See you tomorrow.
Take care and have an abundant day.
May there be a miracle in your life today… And may you have the eyes to see it…
