Yesterday I had lunch with a wonderful Buddhist friend at my favorite diner. The conversation was great and the vegetarian cuisine out of this world (as it always is at Amy's Place on Buffalo, New York)! Being present doesn't just mean floating in the present moment. I can "be" in the moment, dwell if you will, and REALLY notice the moment. Appreciating the present, smelling the flowers along the way.
When I do that I am able to focus and concentrate on the "stuff of life." It feels great to breathe, take note of my surroundings, be grateful....and smile!
