Forty Days of Light: Day Twenty-Six Meditation

Needed a huge amount of head-clearing this morning. Too often I find myself getting wrapped up in what might have been (the past) or what could be (the future) and allowing the thoughts to upset me in one form or another. Listened once again to this one (with earphones). The cool thing is, it immediately put my mind in a much more peaceful, clear-thinking state.

In order to truly enter into a state of peace, one must be focused on the here and now. Looking back can fill you with remorse. Looking forward can fill you with anxiety. When you are focused in the now, everything is perfect. You are alive. You are functioning. The ultimate goal of living in the now is to be--to allow who you are to fully exist in that very moment.

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of existence,
We offer ourselves this day to be the expression of all we came to be in the world. Somewhere deep inside is perfect knowing and understanding of this being. We are the gift we seek.
