Beginning Anew

Beginner’s mind means to continually come back to the present moment with a sense of wonder and awe as the mysteries of life unfold. Every moment presents us with an opportunity and yet most of us pass by the moments in hopes of catching some future prize. We want more and when we want more we are never satisfied. This dilutes our focus. Each moment determines the outcome of the next moment and all the future moments to come. Realize this and each moment becomes an opportunity to begin something new. Here and now we understand that our real power is not in brute force, but in being able to use the present to create a better future.

Power is being able to withstand all sorts of events and situations without losing your flexibility, balance and inner strength. With this power comes the ability to feel confident knowing that we may not be able to control the situations that come into our lives, but we can control our perceptions and attitudes and this empowers us. When you begin to observe life from a beginner’s point of view everything is simply an opportunity to begin again with a fresh perspective.

Throughout this coming year no matter what your goals or resolutions there will be challenges. Meet these challenges with a beginners mind. Come back to each moment with a sense openness and eagerness by staying focused and enthusiastic about your goals even when confronted with disappointment and discomfort. Now you are empowered!

Namaste ~ may all your days be filled with health, happiness and peace
