“Real generosity toward the future consists in giving all to what is present.”
~ Albert Camus ~
Much of the gratitude I talk about needs to be centered in what I do with today. I consciously focus on the present, rather than procrastinating for the future. As a sick alcoholic, I either lived in the guilt of yesterday or the fear of tomorrow. I missed the reality of the present.
The present moment is all I have. Through this moment, I live, breathe, and have my existence! My understanding of prayer is centered in the present moment because any understanding of relationship and communication, especially with God, must begin from where I am, rather than where I would like to be. Spirituality is the reality of the moment.
Spirit of the universe, thank You for the life I experience in the moment.
