"Living in the Present Moment." By Denise Thorpe-Eheler - Renee Vos de Wael
Be still, be in the zone, be happy Live and breathe “mindfulness” Focus, challenge yourself, be accepting of others and who you are and “just be” Appreciate time in the moment, standing still for us to reflect, and give pause – so hit the “pause” button – and go with the flow Take the opportunity to explore, be thankful for the life you have been given And, make a “choice” to do something worthwhile and wonderful each day Give the gift of time to yourself and to others Stop the hour glass of time… “Be there” to be happy, free, and to cut down on mankind’s suffering Get closer to your own truth Find joy, find peace, find the “preciousness of” you! Discover how you connect to everything “that is” and ever will be… Enjoy being alive, live an authentic life, and let your inner light shine in the present moment Remember, to LOVE, it’s key to transformation in your life and others! And, brings you much closer to the spiritual doorway Granting you wisdom and inner peace Breathe air in and feel the “life force” and use it for good, and to create the life you want The Power of the Breathe. Be still and know. The power of the creator is in our spiritual body and heart center Rejoice; find a peaceful moment in nature Treasure the view of a lake, an ocean Know that our life is like the ripples in water Our thoughts and actions have a ripple effect And create good or bad karma for us So, be mindful with your minds eye on watch And, feel your emotional being shift To a new and better you; a “higher knowing” being Filled with positive, neutral, and loving thoughts Your “inner being” aware now See all humanity as part of you, there is no divide We are all inter-connected So, remember the secret of life, give of your heart And, breathe in the power of the breath And, be there now in the present moment See your life expand and feel your spirit soar to new heights By just being alive, still, and taking the time to reflect, give pause, and special attention to living in the present moment Enjoy, be happy, and be free!
