Living and being in the moment is the most powerfully creative thing that a person can do.
So, then, why do we have such a difficult time keeping our mind and our body in the same space?
Why do we keep ourselves in our heads, far away from where our body is right now?
I can't even tell you how many times I attended a concert or a play without really hearing it or seeing it.
How is that possible?
Because I was ruminating about something that happened earlier that day, or last month... or last year.
Or I was beating myself up about something I said, or did, that I 'could have done better.' Or I was inserting myself into the mind of someone else and making up (generally negative) stories about what that person thought or felt about me.
Although my body was present, sitting in my seat, my mind was a million miles away.
It was like I wasn't even there.
Lately I've been consciously choosing to keep myself in the present moment and it's amazing how, little by little, time seems to expand.
By stepping away from my stories about the past and "what happened," and by not placing myself into other people's brains and making up stories, I'm able to create more time in the present.
My mantra these days is: 'keep your mind with your body.'
Try it. It sounds so simple.. yet it's not easy. Is it worth it, then? Oh, yeah!
