Perfect Moments

Often, we are discouraged or feel we've gotten a raw deal because we don't get everything we want. We don't get stellar years, the best careers, the freshest start, the most loving heart, amazing weeks or even many really sublime hours.

What we've got to hope for, aim for and CREATE are perfect moments. What we find then is that a string of just a few perfect moments all of a sudden becomes a great hour and even an astonishing and supremely pleasing day - even a day of a lifetime.

So look to create some perfect moments now and then, and as you head toward and depart from those moments, the seeming "perfection" will grow and linger.

TIP: Often, those perfect moments come from trying to do fairly simple things in fresh settings while taking your time and paying lots of attention. So take your time, and more really fine - maybe "perfect" - moments will come.

How very Zen! And much more inspiring than the "ppp"...previous Pope posts. Living life in the present moment, bringing awareness to each moment, letting the moment be perfect or imperfect creates a life of perfection and higher consciousness. (Just My Opinion)

Jesus Christ on a stick, Lawrence, this isn't bad. Not bad at all. I'm the queen of discouragement and this -- well, this just isn't a bad idea at all. You're an alchemist if you can get ME to lift my head for a second. Damn...

Glad to know you guys are out there - and visiting me here! Yes, I had a good day Tuesday.

"Alchemist" - one of the truly finer compliments I've received in a good long while - I like it! - as I see more alchemy of the psyche making its way into my blog.
