Taking in each moment,

        whether it is the beauty, the horror, the sense of awe

                         or of pain:

         whether it is a sight, a sound, a smell, a touch:

         whether it is looking and really “seeing” in the littlest thing,

                          or in the vastness of the larger before you:

Ingesting, breathing in – deeply,

          totally engulfed in the NOW of existence:

Resting in the present – meditating – “being”:

If you do not do this each day – that means today –

     and do not make this a practice in your life – trust me;

     you will never be fully alive –

     but rather only living on the veneer

     of what you could become.
