Pressing Pause

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.”

~ Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment    


We’ve all talked about it today. We’ve seen the tributes, heard the reflections, and rewatched the footage.

We’ve all thought about where we were, what we did, and what things changed.

There were times today that I was in conversations where the intention was not 9/11, yet the words naturally guided themselves there.

I did some listening today. I did some reading. I did some learning today. I discovered things about that day from people I love and from people I’ve known for years; things I didn’t know before.

If nothing else, this day is a day to press pause, to breathe, and to be grateful for today.
