Bloom of the Present Moment Meditation

Bloom of the Present Moment Meditation

During the day, see if you can detect the bloom of the present moment in every moment, the ordinary ones, the ‘in-between’ ones, even the hard ones. Work at allowing more things to unfold in your life without forcing them to happen and without rejecting the ones that don’t fit your idea of what ‘should’ be happening. See if you can sense the ‘spaces’ through which you might move with no effort… Notice how if you can make some time early in the day for being, with no agenda, it can change the quality of the rest of your day. By affirming first what is primary in your own being, see if you don’t get a mindful jump on the whole day and wind up more capable of sensing, appreciating, and responding to the bloom of each moment.
