This Present Moment
by Rev. Kamatara Johnson
As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love - even the most simple action. — Eckhart Tolle
Breathing into this present moment, I recognize my unity with the One Heart, One Mind, One Sacred Essence that is the I AM. This is the place where I connect with the inner peace of the now. With each breath out, I release unhappiness and struggle; with each breath in I open more and more to the flow of joy and ease. I untense my shoulders and relax my jaw and continue to breath mindfully, slowly, gently into my awareness of the Divine in the here and now.
In the sweet space of a simple breath, I am still. My heart is at peace. I rest confidently in the Divine. I trust the Divine to unfold such as it is and surrender to the best and highest good expressing in this moment. I release any sense of needing to control or engineer things. I allow it all to be easy and enjoyable. What if it were simple and all worked out? How could the Divine be or do any less?
So I give thanks for this little pause that calms me down and reconnects me to the flow of the Divine. I am centered and fully present, ready for a beautiful day that falls into place. I’m grateful for all that comes my way and all that doesn’t. Knowing that all is truly well, I release this prayer into the Law. It is my reality now. And so it is.
