Now is the time in one’s life to make discoveries. Now is always the time… for most things. The past is no longer here…. and, try as we might, we cannot change it. The future has not yet arrived, and, though we make plans, we know that those plans are tentative, and that, despite our best efforts, everything changes. Often unexpectedly.
So what is to be discovered now? And how do we go about it?
Perhaps in each moment the experience of a lifetime can be discovered …. infinite beauty and delight…. boundless appreciation… love. What happens if we stay still for this moment and simply notice what we see, hear, smell, taste, feel…. fully…. without commentary, judgment, analysis? Perhaps a discovery!
This habit – of being fully present and appreciative – will serve us well at the time of death.
