“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.” Thich Naht Hahn

Don’t concern yourself to much with how you feel, pay more attention to what you do.  It is in our actions that lay out the path of our future not our feelings.  Our ego is heavily invested in how we feel, this is how it takes control.  The alcoholic doesn’t keep drinking because they like to ruin their life and the life of others, they drink because of how they feel, and are driven by 100 forms of fear.  Try living your life with intention, where every moment, every choice is intentional.  Think of the power that is created where you have a choice in everything that is happening in your life.  This act keeps you in the NOW and out of the past and future which harbor worry, resentment, anger and fear.  The NOW is all we have.  Today I choose to be here NOW with you as I write these words and I thank you for being here NOW with me.
