To savor life is to be present in the moment. The present moment is alive.
My husband showed me a video this morning of a roadrage incident. My heart goes out to all involved and we may ask ourselves how can something like this happen?
Road rage is one result of not being present.
When we are driving in our car…rarely are we actually present and aware that we are driving. Instead you hear people often say: I was driving to work and don’t remember how I got there. They were driving on “auto control” and were “dreaming”.
This is also how accidents happen and how we become witnesses to accidents.
To be present is to simply be aware of the moment. Right now I am answering a question and you are reading this. Right now you are here, yet the moment your mind wonders off maybe judging my words or grammar and imagining what I look like or asking questions to why am I online at 9:43 a.m. and so on…you are no longer present…but in your mind.
There is “magic” in the present moment, which is the ability to become a witness to God’s creation of perfection.
