If we learn to control the mind, practicing the art of staying present, then the Divine Presence reveals itself in each moment as peace, beauty, insight and joy. If the mind controls us, we are at the mercy of our imagination and out of conscious contact with God’s Presence. ~ Borysenko, Joan. Pocketful of Miracles (p. 28). Grand Central Publishing. Kindle Edition.
Living One Day at a Time (ODAT)
is all well and good, but at times…
lots of times, actually… that’s too long,
too big a chunk of time!
Instead, hold yourself not in the past.
not worrying about the future,
but in the NOW! practicing the art of staying present.
Trust God, the Divine Power, to reveal
Himself in each moment
as peace, beauty, insight and joy.
