When our mind pulls us into the past, the memories, whether good or good, tend to control us causing us unnecessary suffering. When our mind projects us into the future, thoughts of the unknown dominate causing us unnecessary suffering. When we are suffering, we feel stuck. Therefore, it is only in the present moment, which is Now, where we can break free from unnecessary suffering and truly live wholeheartedly. In this wonderful meditation, Dea teaches us, through way of the breath, just how magical the present moment is.
Getting settled on my bench, the force of gravity took over, allowing me to drop down from activities of the mind to feeling embodiment. Once in embodiment, I was in the Now, feeling my belly rise and fall with each breath. Moment to moment, beginning again, I became curious, anticipating the next breath this body took and where in the body I’d feel it most prevalent. With each moment being different, I found joy in the simple act of breathing. Beginning again, I decided to open my awareness to include sounds in my environment. Predominantly hearing birds sing in my environment, I became one with the beautiful dance of life occurring around me. Beginning again, breath after breath, I am pure awareness of all sensations. Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
