Today on my morning drive, I was noticing the extraordinary beauty of the landscape. I wondered if I had just been oblivious to it lately or if today was really exceptional for some reason. The thought entered my mind "It's a new day."
I was immediately reminded of that scene in Sister Act 2 where Whoopi Goldberg is preaching to her students about the fact that it was a new day.
Yesterday, significant things happened for both me and my wife in our respective lives. I was feeling so blessed that each of us are manifesting things to move our individual lives and thus our life together in the direction we desire.
With a joyful sigh, I thought, "It's a new day."
My reverie was gently broken by a thought somewhere way in the back of my mind... every day is a new day.
Yes! How could I have been so asleep? So mind identified? EVERY day is a new day!
When we ground ourselves in the present moment, each moment is new and each moment is an opportunity for awakening.
The old adage "SSDD, Same Shit Different Day" is a creation of the ego. This keeps us mind identified and unconscious.
My still mind identified outlook on life may be different today because of news from yesterday, but the essence of who I am has not changed.
Though our life situations may have changed, my wife and I are still the same physical forms embodying the universal consciousness as we were yesterday, last year or at the moment of our births into this lifetime.
Feeling so blessed for these brief moments of satori!
Every day is a new day...with countless opportunities to live right here, right now!
