Living In This Present Moment

WORD FOR THE DAY from Gratefulness.org.

Try pausing right before and right after undertaking a new action,  even something simple like putting a key in a lock to open a door. Such pauses take a brief moment,  yet they have the effect of decompressing time and Centering you.

A life practice from Br. David Steindl-Rast.

“Word for the Day” from Gratefulness.org is one of my favorite long-standing daily spiritually-oriented emails. Br. David Steindl-Rast is a gem!

I am posting this because I need the reminder!

I have a typical over-active Gemini mind. Fortunately, it is tempered by my Rising Virgo and Pisces Moon–thankfully! But, I still need help!!  😉




Have compassion for everyone you meet
Even if they don’t want it.

What seems conceit, bad manners,
Or cynicism is always a sign
Of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen.

You do not know what wars are going on
Down there where the spirit meets the bone.
