A Mantra to Rekindle Presence
The Body naturally lives in the Present moment, but reflects Past choices.
The Mind is too often distracted by the Past or the Future, imposing great damage on the Body.
Thought is the ancestor of all action, or inaction (analysis paralysis). Our Body too often takes a back seat to our Mind, and pays a deadly price.
Our Happiness Metric
The Body is THE best metric* available to evaluate the quality of our shared existence. The imprints of shared experiences are felt within the Body and displayed upon it.
- Is a constant smile or frown reflecting how the Body truly feels, or is the Mind working overtime?
- We should present our true self to others, to reduce misunderstandings.
- Is a nagging pain [physical or mental] seeking your attention and resolution?
- Too often we avoid “maintenance” and “rush to the Emergency Room” when we experience a total failure.
- Are we experiencing social clashes or harmonious cooperation at macro levels?
- What we do not own personally, transcends us and becomes OUR collective issue.
Are we paying attention to the feedback from the Body?
Conscious living in the Present moment, will return us to a balance of Attention, Connection, and Compassion, for our self and for every Thing we experience that is outside of ourself.
Artificial Problems – Just a Disconnected Existence
We all wish to be totally Happy. Why does happiness evade us?
Most ‘problems’ in Life are nothing more than missed opportunities to Connect [with Life and each other].
The solution to most problems resides in silencing the Mind and Feeling# your way through the situation, IN the physical company of others (not alone in our Mind). Please do not confuse isolated Intuition with Shared Physical Experience.
Too often, we fail to observe, adapt and express what we truly feel, or to appropriately respond to what someone else is feeling (and actively “wearing it on their sleeve”). Our shared curiosity for how the other is feeling (and thinking) leads to shared affirmation and ultimately a Shared Reality.
We can only influence and be influenced through Shared Reality.
Assuming our understanding of Life and our impact on it, is the origin of the “problem”.
Too often, our Mind causes us to blindly react to situations that we’ve misinterpreted. Over a lifetime our perception becomes a personal reality – and extremely flawed, which expedites our own feeling of separation from others.
The Mind, operating alone and in isolation (from others), creates a self-fulfilling prophecy which validates our Fear – that we are alone in a hyper aggressive world that doesn’t support us. Worse yet, we pass on this flawed personal belief system – that we are separate from others – passing it on on to our loved ones, our social groups, and our communities. We become the host cell for Cancerous thought.
We need to remember that the Mind is IN the Body, and to put things back in proper order. Mind must serve the Body.
There is too much talk about Mind->Body connection, suggesting that we manage reality with the Mind and the Body is just an instrument to express what the Mind desires. Quite backwards and unfortunate! We have “put the cart before the horse”.
Presence is not an individual state of being … it is a Shared Reality with what’s really going on in Life.
Only through real-time conscious participation IN life can we affirm shared goals and thus Accept the outcomes (whether good or bad). We can remain Happy about good and bad outcomes, if we can Accept them.
Unhappiness is merely a reality that we cannot Accept.
To Take Action or Not?
If what I suggest above feels wrong to you, I hope we eventually cross paths in our lifetime. I respectfully wish you a wonderful existence, because it is connected to my own.
If you’re feeling skeptical and want more info, please track my messages and speaking events. But please participate, to challenge your Belief System.
If the perspective above [or throughout this site] resonates with you and you’re curious enough of how I can help, give me a call.
Together, let’s explore ways to improve THE daily experience of Life?
I have dedicated my entire life to helping others enjoy their naturally evolving Life. I have helped thousands of people get out of their own Way OF Happiness. I assist in humble, discrete ways, customized to the need of the individual.
I am deeply honored, to help you, maximize your Presence in Life. – David
If you were to die tomorrow, could you Accept it? [the impact on those you leave behind]
If you were to fall ill tomorrow or otherwise cause damage to your Body that will stay with you the rest of your life, could you Accept that?
If NO, then this begs the question… How can I reasonably assure I’ve done all I can, to remain in existence and relevant to Life’s equation? How do I become truly Present and remain Present, the majority of my lifetime?
I have a solution to offer you…
*I’m not referring to how tone the Body is, but more so, how at Peace it is, and how ready and able it is to Respond to how we wish to act in the next Present moment
#The Body’s 5 senses shape our perception over a lifetime. Without affirmation from others, misperception creates our separation from others.
