When you awaken to the now…you find peace.

(Listen to my song “Make Me a Channel” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


Psalm 40:9

“I delight to do your will, my God; your law is in my inner being!”


When we are in sync with our inner voice…we are truly “in the Flow.”

It seems to me that when I am truly present to whatever is before me at the moment, I am contented.

The moment may not even be pleasant…but as long as I am present to that moment…there is contentment.

But being truly present is not so easy!

Our minds are on a never-ending-commentary-spree…so that we are usually completely distracted from what’s at hand.

Try being present to someone without having any thought of what you are going to say and without any judgments.

See what happens.

Be in the moment…with an attitude of gratitude and compassion.

Then…you will experience delight in your heart…because this is exactly what God wants of you: Compassionate presence to what is.

You will find yourself being a channel of love and goodwill.

You will be being your true self.
