Really?? ... Presence is more important in the summer??
Why you ask? :)
Well, do you love great summer memories I do!
Summer is one of my favourite seasons for making great memories - the sunshine, warmer temps and often some holidays!
Really one could go on and on with the wonders of summer:)
And I dont want to miss any of it.
I love this time of year to relax and get closer to nature, and share some good times with family and friends - in short make some great memories!.
Being present really allows you to fully experience the moment -
not with thoughts in the past or future or
pre-occupied with a problem unrelated to the current circumstance.
OOhhh yeah there are lots of ways we can be come 'unpresent'.
For the best experience to be really present - take in all the details of your experience through all your 5 senses...
Feeling the warm summer breezes on your skin,
Hearing the wind in the trees, or the kids at the beach,
Smelling the forest or the lake air.
Really tasting your favourite best ice cream.
No doubt you can add to this list:) What are you're favourite summer memories yet to make.
All these moments and so many more, ARE the experiences of summer we treasure.
Presence is not some exotic state that we need to search for or manufacture. In the simplest terms it is the felt sense of wakefulness and openness and tenderness that arises when we are fully here and now with our experience.
Try it - take a moment in the midst of your favourite summer days and nights to get really present and take it all in! Be Here Now.
It is a wonderous world we live in if we really notice and fill our experience with the details that are waiting to be treasured.
Become conscious in the moment. Become mindful in the moment.
As the Buddha says,
Be where you are, otherwise you will miss your life
Make great memories this summer - be present more often.
So much appreciation for your time and interest in peace and presence.
It all starts with each of us:)
One moment at a time!
Be well, cheers!!
Peace and Presence Lover
