Where is your mind right now? Without judging the findings, chances are you may have been thinking about something in the future or trying to resolve something from the past. 

We are hard-wired to scan for problems and threats. Research shows that we spend about 50% of our waking hours in this state of mind called the default mode network. 

There is another way though and that is with mindfulness; being present to more moments of your day without judgmentas you live them. Is this a day that you can tip the scales and be present more than 50% of the time to what is happening, as it is happening?? You may be surprised with how wonderful it feels to live more of your moments fully.

The art of letting go

I just listened to a wonderful talk by Tara Brach, PhD, about cultivating a fearless heart. None of us will ever be without fear but there is the possibility of cultivating a practice of mindfulness where we can make space for our fear. Instead of trying to over ride it with some kind of unskillful action, we lean in to the fear and see it move out like a wave. Part of her talk addressed her aging process and how many things outside of her control are happening. The loss of loved ones, the process of her body aging with memory issues, and more wrinkles arriving. In spite of these natural occurrences, Tara spoke about the increases in happiness, presence and an overall feeling of love. This shift in attention to draw upon the wider place of love and presence is such a powerful way to let go with grace and ease. Throughout all of our lives we are letting go on so many levels. Could you imagine the ability to let go and open up to more love, more presence, more ability to be here in this precious moment? It sure beats the alternative of bracing, fighting, fearing, and shutting down.
