Day three MindBody Cleanse – The path of the present
By Lauren Ostrowski Fenton
Now take a moment to look down the mountain of your life…From your vantage point of objectivity, what can you see? That’s right you can see the animals, houses, and paths. They look smaller from up here on the mountain of perspective, don’t they? When we start to have perspective we start to light our way with the first candle of wisdom and enlightenment. Have you ever asked yourself know why they call it enlightenment? Because it is about lightening your emotional load so that you can focus on what counts.
So what can we take out of our back pack today? Anything which does not belong in the present. Take the past out. Remember when can we feel? We can only feel in the now and who does the feeling?- Yes, that’s right – we do. And likewise, we choose which feeling to pack into our backpack of now and which feelings to discard. If we have too many feelings, we become distracted, confused and overwhelmed. Just like eating all the chocolates in a box rather than enjoying a select few. .Isn’t it better just to choose one or two and truly savor them?
Today we savor the chocolates of now and learn to taste happiness.
