Slow Down and Just Take It Easy

Do you remember a moment that went on and on forever? This is a moment when everything is just right. It doesn’t happen often for most people. We think of it as a chance occurrence. Furthermore, we assume that such a moment has no significance. Nevertheless, aware presence offers a perspective without mind, body and time restrictions. So, indeed, a moment of conscious awareness is very significant. You don’t believe what I just wrote? Great, because consciously living life isn’t about believing or thinking. Presence is about being in this moment. And, everything will seem to slow down. Do you realize the power you yield through your awakening to conscious living? Concepts, definitions and labels lose significance as you tap into a conscious state of living.

“True Power is within, and it is available now.” – Eckhart Tolle


Still, the mind screams out. It tells you that a conscious state of being is useless. This statement is legitimate when seen strictly from a mind restricted perspective.  Things happen ongoing. And, here also, the mind screams to you in non-acceptance of a situation, person or even its own thoughts. But, the mind fails to realize living life doesn’t depend on any fabricated details. The details of the moment are of mind. But, the moment itself, also known as presence, is, regardless of the details. Acknowledge this deeply. And, you will always live outside of the mind-made box of concepts and limitations.

Slow Down and Smell the Roses

Then, the energy flow within presence will seem to slow down. Although, everything is the same. Nothing changes except you. And, barriers of the mind fade away as possibilities appear. Practice the following in your daily activities.

Simply accept what the mind offers you. Then let go. It’s not as difficult as it sounds. Just observe the vast space and silence within this moment. Your center of focus is essential in this exercise. I personally practice conscious awareness during meal preparations. And, amazingly, everything within such a moment seems to literally stand still. Let your mind have its timetables and routines. However, don’t become assimilated within any detail of the mind or your experiences. Thus, the space within this conscious presence expands. This expansion is ongoing as your focus shifts away from mind details.

Everything will slow down as this space becomes conscious of itself through your awareness.

Wishing you a joyful day
