Quiet the voice in your head. Notice what’s going on around you, but without talking to yourself about it. Spend some time letting everything be what it is without making conscious judgments. This is how to be mindful. This is how to be fully present. It’s not easy. It’s a discipline.
We don’t have to be that way all of the time. I’m certainly not. But the more time we spend practicing this exercise, the better. It will take care of a lot of our concerns. It will eliminate a lot of stress. It also gives us access to our inner wisdom, which is often drowned out by our inner dialogue.
This is where you’ll find the “Kingdom of God”. It’s not coming down from the clouds. It’s already in you. You just have to access it by letting go of your own nonsense.
