When You Try to Stop and Be Present, What Obstacles Do You Become Aware of?

  • What are some solutions for your obstacles?
  • What is the worst that can happen if you stop and are present?
  • Is it worth it?

 

Despite our crazy-fast culture, we can actually have God now because God is right here right now. We just have to stop. Be still. Become aware. The Holy is right under our nose.

This is truly putting spirituality into action. As we’re bombarded by zillions of stimuli every day — from work tasks to dealing with coworkers to bedtimes to dishwashing to billboards to traffic jams to commercials to soccer practices to feeling overwhelmed to worry to anger to fear — if we want self-realization, we must be proactive and remember. We must continuously stop ourselves.

Stop and check in with ourselves.
Stop and smell the roses (both figuratively and literally).
Stop and intensely feel that God is right here right now.

The deadline can wait (at least for five seconds).
The meal can wait.
The TV show can wait.
Usually, whatever it is that we’re rushing toward can wait.

The time to experience Inner Peace is now.
The time to Love is now.
There is no other time.
There is only now.

    If I try to stop I keep stopping and stopping. It's mostly about "things to do" Tell me , Dan, how do I stop stopping?
