In observing your own mind, you may find that much of your thinking is focused on future and past moments. Rarely are we ever fully present. Experiencing this moment now with all of your senses—touch, taste, smell, sight, and sound—can help you tune in. It takes courage to center yourself in awareness, shining a light into the shadows and being open to what we find.
In mindful presence,
Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed.
―Thich Nhat Hanh
