If you’ve been following this blog for any length of time, you know that this is not a new idea for me, this being in the NOW. The silence, solitude and simplicity at the CBTS gives me long stretches of practice time. I really don’t need to get things done today, nor do I need to make any plans (much of my chatter involves planning). That all can wait.
Being in the present moment, therefore, is my current project, a project that definitely doesn’t come easy to me. Successes are infrequent, but I have faith that will change. On my walk to the lighthouse today I practiced staying present to the ocean. Along the way I discovered a tool box—the senses. Very useful and always with me.
