Day 6 – Gratitude Is in the Present

“Just be, right now, here; and breathe. Begin to trust the magic of yourself.” ― Nikki Rowe

In today’s meditation, we will discover how gratitude makes the present moment fully alive, awake, and enriched. We will learn how every instant of our life is a unique gift and that when we are awake to this special value of the Now, we step into a state of grace.

So much of our cultural conditioning pulls us out of the present moment, striving for an impossible ideal in the future. Somewhere outside this present time, we hope to have what we currently lack, or look like what we think we should look like, and feel the happiness we don’t feel now. But this assumes that the present is inherently lacking, and the present is all we ever know. Practicing gratitude turns this around so that we find our completeness in the present moment.

Most humans are never fully present in the now, because unconsciously they believe that the next moment must be more important than this one. But then you miss your whole life, which is never not now. And that's a revelation for some people: to realize that your life is only ever now. Eckhart Tolle

My Notes:

Many time I dwell in the past or think of the future, that I totally miss the present.   Live in the present, have gratitude for the present.  In my meditations today I focused on feeling present, not let my mind wander and leave the here and now.   It felt as I slowed down time.  I was in the moment.


Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and start enjoying the moment that you're in.


It's so easy to get caught up in what is happening right now in our lives...but there is SO much more out their for us. We just need to look beyond the now and see what happens next.

The act of forgiveness is the act of returning to present time. And that's why when one has become a forgiving person, and has managed to let go of the past.... what they've really done is they've shifted their relationship with time  --Carolyn Myss
