The Tao of Spirit Series

Lesson 1 – Be Present

“Stand before it and there is no beginning. Follow it and there is no end. Stay with the ancient Tao, move with the present.” – Lao Tse (Chapter 14, Lao Te Ching)

Our approach here is just a sincere one. A sincere approach of just opening ourselves up to that Spiritual presence and we do it in this moment now. We must come present, and so that’s really what we’re doing, not as a goal, but recognizing that’s what’s going on.

So allow yourself to come present right now. With things just as they are – thinking what you are thinking, feeling what you are feeling and sensing what you are sensing. Just being present and observing. And when you find yourself drifting off in thought, bring yourself back into paying attention.
