What prevents us from being present and finding our Middle Ground?
In my experience there are 4 key things that get in the way.
1. The busyness of life. The external demands and lack of time. We get caught up in the roles we play and the expectations of others. We choose to do too many things in the time available. However, we end up feeling depleted and become stressed.
2. We are hooked on getting things done and are attached to outcomes … which are in the future. Exhaustion becomes a reward for our hard work.
3. We hold on to beliefs about how life should be. We get stuck in our judgments, the stories we create to justify ourselves, and the drama of our lives.
4. We have lost touch with our own feelings and what we need. Instead we let our thinking jump from one thought to the next. We regret what has happened or wish things hadn’t happened. Or we worry about the future and think ahead to what might happen next.
In the highs and lows of life, how easy it is to miss the moment we are living in… right now.
When we are aware of this, we are one step closer to finding our Middle Ground.
It is an ongoing practice to become present and feel connected and at peace.
