Today I practice “being.” I am present in this moment that brings me to my laptop. Later in the morning, I will be present in the company of a friend. Later still, I will be present in my massage. And later still, I will be present while I clean my house and make a cake. and then there is that all-important meditation circle at 6:30 tonight, and I will be present then too.
See what I just did there? I left the moment. As soon as we start to say “I will…,” we leave this moment. I have a wonderful day coming up, and I remind myself to live each moment like it is my last.
