When we are mindful of the present moment and simply allow it to be, we open a door to our natural state of being – accepting, loving, peaceful, kind and happy. Most of us are so distracted and moving so fast that we get caught up in the world of “doing” or worrying about what we should be doing next.
Too much doing and thinking disconnects us from our sense of “being”and who we really are.
I write about finding this place of connection, contentment and peace in the highs and lows of life. I call it our Middle Ground.
When I can be the witness all manner of miracles occur- old wounds heal, the past reveals itself to be released, present dramas play themselves out without sinking emotional talons into my soft skin. The witness welcomes truth and dares to meet reality on its own terms, It is the ground in which the seeds of transformation take root and finally flower. when the witness is awake, the lake of mind is still, and in that mirrored surface, I see my own true face as Spirit smiling back at me.

These words settled in deeply today as I read them at the end of yoga class.
When we learn to become observers of ourselves – just noticing without judgment, we open the gateway to witness consciousness and inner transformation. Along with this self-awareness comes the contentment of just being here, alive, enjoying being present in this moment.
