The Freedom in Being Present
Posted on May 27 2020
There's a certain feeling of freedom that I only get from being very present. It's a break from my usual thoughts, and in a strange way it's a feeling very similar to the one you get when going on a vacation. The things I usually worry about, feel stress about or feel obligated to do... have disappeared. I'm able to see what's really important to me and contrast that with the things that tend to take up too much mental or emotional energy. In those moments I feel more alive, and more grounded in the truth of being alive - which is that most of the paradigm we live in each day is a mental construct.
