I am home in the present moment.
The present moment is the most powerful moment of all. It is the only time I can breathe, connect with my body, and feel alive. When my mind is distracted and jumps to the past or the future, I may experience fear or worry unnecessarily. To be at peace, I need only return to the now—to this breath, to this heartbeat. As I breathe in, I gently think of the word “in.” As I breathe out, I softly say to myself, “out.” I repeat this cycle for several minutes, and any mind disturbances dissolve. Quiet and calm, I experience the peaceful power of the present moment in my body. My gentle breathing relaxes my inner dwelling. I am alive in my breath, I am at ease in my heart. I don’t need to go anywhere else to find peace. I am already home.
Now you are the body of Christ.—1 Corinthians 12:27
