Living in the Present

With the increasing resistance to releasing the need for polarity in the world, it seems that we will never find a way to bring that balance back into our lives. When thinking about it, it occurs to me that first and foremost the focus must be on "being in the moment". From that place it is much more difficult to allow the mind to run rampant in "judgemental thinking" which is by definition focusing on the polarities: good or bad, right or wrong, better or worse, conservative or liberal. What is real is that we all incorporate both polarities within us. So, if we rail against the opposite in someone else, we are only railing against ourselves. Better to stay in the present moment - be available, out of our heads and into our hearts. Experiencing the essence of the moment and being the moment rather than "thinking about it" or even worse getting on the mental hamster wheel during which time you are missing moments that will never come again. A simple technique that gets you out of your head is to pat your high heart (that flat place on your chest just below your throat) and concentrate on what is going on now. It is a simple technique that stops the mental chatter and connects you to source directly. In this moment, I share love and understanding with all, that includes my own polarity or shadow.
