The Nature of Presence

You learn what you need to learn from the places the universe wants you to learn it from.

Or at least that’s what I’m working on accepting this week. Learning to let go of our attachments to things, people, experience, outcomes is how we leave space for what can happen to emerge. Easy to say, not so easy to do in the real world of chaos and uncertainty.

But my beautiful son reminded me yesterday of a great, simple truth: if we can mechanize this letting go and shift our attention most of the time away from the internal chaos our mind generates, we’ll find ourselves in the present moment, and that is where the truth lives for each of us, where the magic of what’s possible can happen.

What do you do toward mechanizing that ability? It’s the process, baby. Mine is a under construction.
