This past weekend, as I was enjoying some quiet reflection time outside at the computer, I came across this video by Jeff Foster. I was immediately captivated by his quiet presence and felt myself become fully present as I listened to his words (which is a good thing since the topic of his talk was on being present!).
Being present in every moment is a beautiful experience. It allows us to have a deeper awareness and appreciation of who we are, where we are, and the beauty of life in all its forms. It can help remove us from the endless mind-chatter that keeps us back from fully expressing our Divine Potential.
As with anything, we can fall into stress, anxiety, and judgment in believing that we are not being “present enough”. Judgment, comparison, depression, and anxiety can all come from our egos trying to tell us that we aren’t “enlightened enough” or “spiritual enough”. Jeff reminds us that you are never “out of the moment” as everything is happening “in the moment.”
You cannot become enlightened. You were never un-enlightened. You have always been the light of consciousness itself. – Jeff Foster
Take a peek at the video below and see if this message changes the way you think about enlightenment and being present “in the moment.”
