Would you say, “No thank you.” if someone came to your house and handed you a million dollars? It is fair to say this is a dream scenario most people would love to experience. This dream scenario contains nothing but good stuff. Within it are elements of ease, excitement, joy, liberation and boundless new opportunities. In addition to all that…according to this fantasy we do not even have to make an effort. This prize comes to seek us out! We could still be in our pajamas when that big check from the universe shows up on our doorstep. You could just be sitting there at home mindfully minding-your-own-business and BAM YOU ARE A MILLIONAIRE!
But what are the odds? To my way of thinking pretty-damn-good… IF you are willing to consider – the present moment as the prize.
The present moment is handed to us every day, all the time, over and over again. Within it are the same promises of liberation and boundless new opportunities. It contains all of life in just the kiss of a second and then another and another and another. This present moment stuff never stops coming.
Within your awareness of the present moment are a bounty of riches. The plasticity of eternity is joyfully experienced everyday constantly in the ever changing course of hours and in the ever changing stream of our own consciousness.
It isn’t called present for nothin’ you know!
Knock, knock! Who’s there?
