Returning To Source
Mindful notes on Be-ing… present… now…
Returning to Source, mindful notes on Being… present… now… is a series of daily notes on various subjects for you to consider that may affect your life on deeper levels of Being. You can start anywhere, as these are not necessarily sequential. There is a common thread that does run through and connect them all, that being: to pay attention to the present moment. Other than that, they cover a wide variety of topics with some just being observations from my life.
Also know that, all we are is change, all we are is changing, and you are bringing your current awareness to whatever you are experiencing now; updating that experience in light of your current growth, learning and understanding. So there will be some notes you may want to spend more time with (reflecting on or practicing). And some you may want to keep coming back to over time to discover how they and you are changing.
So either start at the beginning or by finding one that suits your fancy and dive in. Discover and allow what you can learn about yourself. Consider how you can help improve your thoughts, your emotions, your health, your achievements and goals, your relationships, your finances… your life, you're just Be-ing present…
