I have another question that I want to explore in more detail over the next year. Maybe at the heart of this blog. If one is a monk, meditating on a mountain top, it seems it would be quite simple to remain present given little or no interruptions, commotion, chaos..... life in general intervening.
Most of the rest of us have jobs, significant others, kids, extended family, school, volunteer jobs, homework, co-workers, church or other organizations to which we belong or attend.... not to mention the daily stresses in life such as ..... Traffic, bills, housework, laundry just to name a few!..... So, how do the rest of us, living at the bottom of the mountain remain in the NOW?
Join me in the present!
