Waterfalls Uplift

Waterfalls are spectacular, simultaneously beautiful,
uplifting, overwhelming and bringing such immediacy
into our minds.

There is no wondering about what the waterfalls were like
yesterday, no way to know what they'll look like tomorrow.
There will always be a shade of difference, a nuance noticed
or not, but to see them right now, in this moment in their
powerful splendor---that is the way to celebrate the present.

Happy and Content in the Now

We often take only the bad from the past, quickly breeze through the present, and falsely make up the future. The result is frequently guilt about your imperfect past, anxiety about a future that doesn't exist, and impatience with the Now.

But it is the Now which can help us to live our lives today, fully alive, happy and content.

To prove the value of the present to yourself, try this:

Take a moment and sit in a comfortable place and observe.

  • What do you see? Describe the images around you.
  • What sounds are there? How many can you hear?
  • Can you smell different smells? (Some are pleasant, some maybe not!)
  • Tell yourself how the surfaces around you feel, the chair, the rug under your feet, the tightness or looseness of your clothing.
  • And finally, what tastes are apparent in your mouth?

Take a few minutes and reconnect with the world as you experience it in the now.
