Right here, right now.

Right in this moment. I often wonder what the idea of staying in proximity of where my body is located seems like such a big deal? Humans having that blessing/curse of being able to entertain ourselves with stories about “What if” and “I should/shouldn’t” and “If only” things that for the most part come under the heading of “Stories.”

I find the worst stories, akin to nightmares, are driven entirely by Conditioned ego personality. This confinement period has been a wonderful place to practice my awareness of how attached my ego is to habit, patterns, wants, and it’s ability to distract itself.

What I find, if I leave the stories behind and engage, is my surroundings are truly interesting and engaging. With no stories I find there is nothing that doesn’t have meaning. Why? Because, without my stories about a world that isn’t, the real world shines through. The real world, with its Bittersweet experiences, colors, sounds, sights, and feelings that are all waiting for me to attend to them.

I am so fortunate to have the life that i have. Increasingly fortunate to live through all the misadventures and life’s experiences that have added to my perspectives. I am fortunate to have people in my life whom I believe care about me. I am fortunate in so many ways that I did absolutely nothing to produce.

For me this is not about seeing the bright side or building a rosy fantasy mindset. It’s about attention to what is in front of me and how fortunate I am to live in the moment I exist.

Thanks to all,

Bryan

  1. Absolutely love this piece!!! There is so much truth spoken here, so much clarity!! It is something that I’m sure many of us need to stop and consider!! A life of ‘What Ifs’ is certainly no way to truly live!! Thanks for such an eye-opening perspective!! Hugs- Sharon
