From Micheal Brown's The Presence Portal.....
THE PRESENT MOMENT IS VALID - ENTERING IT CONSCIOUSLY IS A PORTAL INTO
AUTHENTICITY, INTEGRITY, AND INTIMACY.
Present moment awareness is "being fully present within each unfolding
moment just as it is - without interference - without binding it with
the resonance of fear, anger, and grief arising from our unintegrated
past". Only when we are present are we vulnerable to receiving, and
therefore able to contain, each unfolding encounter as a divinely
ordained opportunity to intimately explore the profound possibilities
of our humanity. Entering the moment fully requires a behavioral
transformation - a shift from unconscious reactivity into deliberate
responsibility. This transformation is only authentically accomplished
through integrating the underlying imprinted emotional signatures that
consistently distract us from being present.
I don't have any pontificating to go with this today... I just love it.
