This is a gentle affirmation to move into the present moment with ease and joy, for this moment is your life. There is nothing else to do here than to be here, to be present with the space you stand in.
“In this moment, there is plenty of time. In this moment, you are precisely as you should be. In this moment, there is infinite possibility.” – Victoria Moran
This Moment Is Always Enough
There is a lightness here that is only found here, and it is enough.
This is always, and eternally, enough. There is nothing holding me back, and nothing pulling me into the future. Just for this moment, I am willing and able to recognize that all eternity has been planted here. Here lies every grain of sand, the entire ocean in a single drop, and one heart beating.
The more I show up in my life, the less I feel like something is missing.
The more I express my heart in my work, the more I love what I do. The more honest I am in my messages, the more fulfilled I am in being alive. The more open I am with others, the more love shows up to support me. The more I pause and tap into the frequency of my own presence, the more abundant I feel.“When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” – Lao Tzu Click To Tweet
There is no emptiness here when I fully occupy this space.
I let this moment be all that I need.
There is no right or wrong, good or bad, easy or difficult–this moment just is. Nothing else need exist here for this to be enough, for everything exists here because it is enough. There’s a release and a freedom that comes from just letting life be, without labels.
I treat this moment as though it is not cheap, but sacred and fragrant with the scent of divinity. I focus not on what I perceive as lacking, but on the limitless abundance available here and now. Nothing else is needed—no pictures to capture the scenery, no text messages to feel connected, no more money in my pockets that I cannot take with me into eternity.
To Be Present Is to Be Free
There is healing here, and freedom, and there is nothing to hold on to, and nothing holding on to me.
My presence in this moment need not mean non-activity, just engagement in whatever I am doing without lingering in another place or time.
I am allowed to have wants, but I notice that when I intersperse moments of wanting nothing other than the moment I’m in, life becomes abundant here and now. Riches come forth, down alleyways and streets I did not see before.
In this moment, I am free to see the sacredness in silence and to sense the joy of being alive. This moment grants me the freedom to release any resistance to what is showing up; I just watch and listen. I can drop any conviction that this moment need be anything other than what it is, just for now.
Just for now, I can be here without thinking twice, not even once, about what might happen next. Here I am, so here I’ll be.“Begin at once to live, and count each separate day as a separate life.” – Seneca Click To Tweet
Just for this moment, I’m reminded that the true path to liberation is to let everything go. Letting go gives me freedom to understand more clearly the true nature of the mind, which is like the sky only hidden by layers of clouds, but which remains bright and untouched, undefined by the clouds.
There is clarity here that I can only see with from this present vantage point. There is freedom now from any time that is not Now.
Presence Laced with Appreciation Is Fertile Soil for Miracles
There is nothing to judge, no label to give, no thought to obsess over–only this life to live.
I am accepting, calmly acknowledging that there is a higher order of things that I neither need control nor worry about. The spirit of gratitude sweeps over me here and now, and I am okay.
I can close my eyes here and see with my true eye that all is well in this moment, because this moment is life. I see the heart of this moment, and it beats in rhythm with my own. I look beyond my thoughts and see a clear mind. When I breathe in with presence, I know I am breathing the breath that is breathing us all.“Look past your thoughts so you may drink the pure nectar of this moment.” – Rumi Click To Tweet
I know this too shall pass, as I stand in the midst of a waking and dying moment, and I realize distinctly that birth and death are synonyms. I am grateful that this moment gives me a chance to understand that I’m forever endowed with the capacity to choose peace instead of suffering.
Wherever I am, here I stand, firmly planted in gratitude.
