R u getting the MOST out of it?


This clip gives me the chills, and I mean POSITIVE ones that make your heart skip and the hair on your body stands up out of excitement. This clip to me is showing a human being who is totally in THE PRESENT. If this clip doesn’t “do it” for you I suggest that you switch on your TV and take a look at the OLYMPIC GAMES!!!

For those of you who want to dive deeper, here’s my Sunday Special ☺

ENJOY Jo


Are you so busy getting to the future that the present is reduced to a means of getting there? There are simple things you can do to bring your attention to the here and now.

* Become aware of your breathing. Feel the air flowing in and out of your body. Feel your inner energy field. All that you ever have to deal with, cope with, in real life—as opposed to imaginary mind projections—is this moment. Ask yourself what "problem" you have right now, not next year, tomorrow, or five minutes from now. What is wrong with this moment?

* Give up waiting as a state of mind. When you catch yourself slipping into waiting…snap out of it. Come into the present moment. Just be, and enjoy being. If you are present, there is never any need for you to wait for anything. So, next time somebody says, "Sorry to have kept you waiting." You can reply: "That's all right, I wasn't waiting. I was just standing here enjoying myself."



“Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you
Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here,
Stand still. The forest knows Where you are.
You must let it find you!”

Så kloka ord,älskar att bli påmind om att livet är just nu och här.Tar med mig den underbara meningen att säga till någon när jag "väntar".
