Reflections of the heart: Living in the now

All of your power lives in the now and in this moment. It is in this moment that you have the opportunity to create change and make your desires a reality. To do this, you must live in the present. What is happening in this moment is simply a reflection of what is in your heart. Love creates love, just as fear creates fear.

One memorable experience of practicing staying in the now occurred for me while I participated in a river tubing trip with my family. As I hung on for dear life, the river’s rushing water pushed the tube back and forth, carrying me over a series of rapids and down the river. Having no control over the situation, I often would drop over small rock cliffs.
