I'm so grateful for The Power of Now, because practicing being present the past couple days has been the most incredible experience of my life. It is the most meaningful practice I've ever started. Throughout the day I ask myself, "I wonder what my next thought will be?" and I've been able to clear more and more and more space. Every time I say it, it's like sweeping a clearing in the woods. I make a little more progress every time. I'm pulled back to the Now every time.
Then Tolle suggests practicing the feeling of one's inner body... which was a difficult concept for me to grasp at first. I was looking for a thought, and then I realized I need to not think, and actually feel my limbs, my breathing, the weight of my skin. I felt a humming, similar to what I feel after working out or having a particularly exhilarating experience. I realized that's the feeling I was looking for. It's the most incredible experience. Smooth thrumming, the vibrating of life itself.
I'm so grateful for these two new practices, of being thought free, and of focusing on the feeling of life within me - the inner energy body creating my physical reality.
I'm so grateful that every time I have a negative thought or my attention is placed on something I don't like, I now respond with "I wonder what my next thought will be?" I am instantly transported from having to suffer through the thought, to being able to observe the thought and almost laugh at it. "I wonder what thought I'll have next?" makes me instantly aware of what I'm attracting - what I'm allowing into my experience.
I'm so grateful for homemade dinners. I'm so grateful for the Universal Grocery List worksheet, which is more powerful than I imagined it would be. I'm so grateful I choose focus. I'm so grateful that every single day, I find new thoughts that make me feel better than ever. I love that my thoughts that are propelling me right now are:
I wonder what my next thought will be?
Practice the feeling of life.
