Our True Home Is In The Present Moment



Our true home is in the present moment.
To live in the present moment is a miracle.
The miracle is not to walk on water.
The miracle is to salk on the green Earth in the present
moment, to appreciate the peace and beauty that are available now.
Peace is all around us--
in the world and in nature--
and within us ---
in our bodies and our spirits.
Once we learn to touch the peace,
we will be healed and transformed.
It is not a matter of faith;
it is a matter of practice.

Hey, ILP! I did get to enjoy a few of those sunshiny days. They were really nice. I went out and took a few pics...and just drove around a bit.

Hope you're doing alright. I read your blog, but didn't know exactly what to say. Just know that if you need to talk, I'm here. *lots of hugs for you*
