Being Present

Excerpt from Conscious Life: © 2010

When our history speaks to us we react. That is further evidence of not living consciously. When conscious we are present. We are aware because we have examined the debris of our history and its’ profound impact on our today. Some people in recovery from addiction often are heard saying that in order to recover they must live in the “now, now”. That is a perfect example of staying out of the reactions to history. But not only do we need to be present, we must also be aware of the factual data that is our history. This cannot be done without examination. We must, even when it is difficult, exhume our history and take a look.

Are you ready to dig?
