Creating Positive Change Is an Inside Job!

In our daily lives there are chance encounters and circumstances that offer us choices and an opportunity to contribute something positive. From the way we face our spouses in the morning, to our reaction to media stories, to how we deal with the frustrated individual at work. The choices we make can infuse more meaning in our live or leave us feeling unfulfilled and yearning to make a difference. The pace of life today and the multitude of challenges we face in our own lives –financial losses, family concerns, career and relationship issues — are the “things” that can take us out of the present. They can also bring about emotional uneasiness, sometimes even turning into physical discomfort such as a tight stomach or ache in our chest.

Getting Back to the Present

Is there a practice or a spiritual tradition you follow daily to step out of the fray, create more ease and get you in touch with the present? It might be as simple as walking outdoors for a few minutes periodically during the day to look at the sky or observe a bird flying by. Or perhaps you might read an inspirational poem or passage in a favorite book. When we find ways to get and stay in the moment we can carry out the work at hand with more presence, creativity and intention for doing good.

Finding meaning and being a positive change maker is an Inside Out Job that is supported by living more fully in the present! Since you have one life to live, what ways will you chose to live more meaningfully in the present starting NOW?
