There’s a practice so simple that many people will discount it as not worthy of trying.
They’ll miss out on the transformative power of that very simplicity.
The practice is this: Sit still for a moment, and just feel what it feels like to be alive. Then relax into that feeling.
Yes, I know, sitting still for a moment isn’t something we want to do right now. We got things to do, man! But just try it, for a minute. Sit still and feel what it feels like to be alive, for you, right this moment. There’s never been another moment like this particular one, and never will be again.
Let me repeat that: There’s never been another moment like this particular one, and never will be again.
That means that at this moment, we have the opportunity to fully appreciate the miracle of this moment, and how it came to be from the infinite number of causes that created it from preceding moments. We are alive in this moment because of millions of other people who have supported us, because of everything on this planet, which just happened to be the perfect conditions for creating the person we are right this moment. What a freakin’ miracle!
