The gift of mindfulness provides the ability to live in harmony with life, both the pleasant and the unpleasant, without attachment to either. When we seek experience rather than outcomes, we become aligned with the present rather than striving for some distant projection of the future.
Evolution – on all levels – is simply a series of growth and changes that support one another. As we move through the ebb and flow of awakening, we are transformed. Level by level our consciousness expands and we are able to recognize new dimensions of ourselves and our life experiences.
Periodically take stock of your own growth. Chances are that you respond to life far differently today than you did a year ago, or five, or ten. Pause to honor how far you have come on the journey with the realization that it is just begun… and bliss awaits.
Today, my intention is to take one more conscious step forward.
