Life is in this very moment, right now. The air we breathe in and out. The keys with each key stroke. Right now is what is important. If I think about the past I can get caught up in what I’ve done before, be it right, wrong, good or bad (or maybe not assigning any judgment at all could be helpful). Thinking in the present moment helps me make conscious choices about what is appropriate for the now.
Mindfulness is what people are calling it these days. I am a believer and a practicer. And like any human I can get caught in ways of the past and thoughts of the future.
It almost seems so simple. BE HERE NOW. Yet the mind likes to wander and give attention to whatever we allow it. The beauty of what we do here at Oak Park is that is truly requires you to be present. Present and conscious of your breath, your body position and your mindset. As you take the step, jump or pull for your next rep, being fully present allows your mind to have that focus. To feel the joy, the challenge, the growth and the learning that takes place here.
Thank you for taking the time to be present with us.
