“The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

Psalm 25:4

Make known to me your ways, LORD; teach me your paths.


To believe that you need to find some path is to believe you are lost.

This is truly a delusion.

You are right where you need to be.

You are whole and complete – your soul-self.

You need nothing more.

You are completely and eternally loved by God, the Love that created everything, just as you are.

Right now is all you have.

It is the eternal now.

It is always now.

And right now, you are enough.

Awaken to the knowledge that you are the beloved of God.

Live from that place.

Let go of the ego’s insatiable need to have more to somehow acquire an identity or happiness.

Those things are all trappings of this earthly plain.

Engage in them as you wish but always knowing that those things will dissolve at some point.

Right now, you are alive and cherished.

So, let go.

As Jesus said: “Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses it will save it” (Luke 17:33).

Breathe deeply.

The path is hereeverywhere and nowhere.

You are whole.

Be grateful.
