So far this has been a wonderful day…quiet and in some way reverential. LIving each moment fully is not as easy as it might seem to be….I have to get control of my mind and live with a certain sense of intention and spontaneity at the same time. To do the next thing and understand that everything is my life, everything is me, nothing is a burden unless I make it one-that also requires a concious letting go of the stories I habitually use to get through the day and define

myself. In fact,it seems to me that letting go of self-definition is what frees me to meet the moment as it is, to be open to whatever happens and stand on the ground

of the moment.
