Before I downgraded my channel options to save money, I happen to flip through and stopped on the OWN Network. Oprah was interviewing the author Mark Nepo. I really enjoyed his message which basically boiled down to being present in the moment. This is something I’m working hard on to cultivate in my own life. I’m a worrier. I often lament the past and worry about EVERY possible outcome for the future. Living presently and working to do so has been my life’s pursuit.
After this interview, I ordered The Book of Awakening. It’s formatted into a passage per day with probing questions to mull over as you meditate. I don’t necessarily sit and meditate but I run and journal. Two places that I’ll often find myself thinking over his questions. I’ve taken away many meaningful thoughts from this book. I have it on Kindle and can read it on my computer or Kindle which ensures I catch most days. Without being too “New Agey” it conveys a positive message. Definitely worth buying.
