My Coffee And Me

You must be completely awake in the present to enjoy a cup of coffee.

Only in the awareness of the present can your hands feel the warmth of the cup.

Only in the present can you savor the aroma, taste the sweetness,or the bitterness, appreciate the simplicity.

If you are reflecting about the past, or worrying about the future, you will completely miss the experience of enjoying a cup of coffee.

You will look down at the cup and the coffee would be gone.

Life is like that.

If you are not fully present, you will look around and it will be gone.

You will have missed the feeling, the aroma, the sweetness, the bitterness, the simplicity. All of it.

The past is finished. Learn from it and let go.

The future is not even here yet. Plan for it but don't waste time worrying about it.

When you stop ruminating about what happened, and worrying about what may never happen, then you are in the present moment.

Be thankful of this moment. And you will begin to experience real joy and happiness.
