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.

SITTING IN THE CENTER OF UNCERTAINTY

Transitions are part of life, but with the flux of change comes a mixture of turbulent thoughts, emotions and body sensations. Not such an easy place to live from. Pema Chodron, an American Buddhist nun, teaches us how to STAY present to the full gamut of inner experience. There is no amount of shopping, substance use or other distraction that can remedy the inner process of “riding the wave of experience”!! Are you staying present for what needs attention in your life? it is a tall order indeed. We live in a culture that touts the quick fix, better in a few days approach. The marketing gurus want us running to the nearest store to buy more stuff to fix us. A wiser approach is learning to lean into what is difficult and hold onto the steadiness of our breath. That is something we can count on. Breathing in, breathing out, allowing room for what is here. Now that is a much better approach to claim our lives instead of the elusive chase after the magic bullet. Learning to stay present is a skill. The more you practice being with what is arising within you and meeting it with kind attention, the more it becomes the familiar place to come home to.
