Enough

Is it enough to be you, as you are right now?  Is it enough to be present and not consumed by doing?  Is it enough not to need anything?

This video by “The Mrs” examines self image, and the book I just finished, “The Map of Enough” ponders what it may look like to be satisfied with now – with where you live, what you have and who you are…

Map of Enough

 

As the New Year of 2015 moves closer, I am examining this concept of enough.

Thankful for all that is and being present to this gratitude is enough more and more of the time.

The fullness comes from the inner gifts, never from outer appearances.  From the wildness and completeness of nature, and not from those things that are contrived.  From present moments and not busyness.   From awareness.  From taking a long sweet breath of life, as it is, now.

“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.”
Amit Ray, Om Chanting and Meditation

“The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.”
Thích Nhất Hạnh, Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life

“There is only now. And look! How rich we are in it.”
Vanna Bonta, Shades Of The World

“The only true thing is what’s in front of you right now.”
Ramona Ausubel, No One is Here Except All of Us
