Joy is in Living the Moment

Joy is …only in living the moment. There is a divine mystery to life. Feeling safe in this mystery is definitely a challenge for me especially lately when the world seems like it’s getting faster and there are so many changes happening. It’s so easy to take road trips with my mind. By this I mean thinking the worse about a situation. The reality can turn out to be completely different than what I think. Being willing to release the need to future trip with my mind when there is mystery and not knowing is an important spiritual practice. Waiting for the mystery to unfold and either getting busy with something productive or choosing to send optimistic divine blessings to the future and visualizations are ways that support this practice for me. There really is only the present moment.
