Thoughts on how to experience each moment fully…

How to feel that we really are experiencing a moment fully, and taking it in for everything it is worth… It’s one thing to know without question or doubt that we feel happy or content in a given moment. Knowing that there is no limit as to how ecstatic we can feel in any moment, however ‘simple’ or ‘ordinary’, is something else entirely… This means never putting any constraints on our feelings of happiness or gratitude, at any time – ever!

Imagine…

You are happy, at present, in this simple moment (which you already know is more than just a “simple” moment)… Imagine, now, how happy it would make you to know that this is already your second chance at this moment…? You’ve lived it before, in another time… And right now, having travelled through distant time and universes, you find yourself right here once again.

I’ll let that sensation sink in…

Does it feel good to be back, having been gone so far from here and for so long? Do you miss the person you are with? When was the last time you saw them? Don’t be surprised by the need to look at them more closely, or listen to them more intently than perhaps you did the first time you lived this moment; you probably weren’t counting on this chance to live it again. Perhaps this experience has offered you a new perspective on what it means to experience each moment fully…?

But, now that you are here, you’re ever more grateful for this second chance, because you know just how lucky you are it’s yours!!

“There are no ordinary moments. There is always something going on.”

Peaceful Warrior

In twenty years’ time…

… you will desperately wish you still looked the way you do in that ‘awful’ photo just taken of you, or that you still had the ability to move, laugh, see and hear as freely and easily as you currently do. Your youth, vitality, independence, senses and mobility are gifts you’ll want to appreciate long before they’re either jeopardised or altogether lost.

Stop… Accord your attention to the details of where you are – your company and surroundings – which are only here, only now. Realise, in that very moment, that it’s the last chance you’ll have to experience that exact moment exactly as it is, here in the present.

Many centuries from now, when your life in this world has long ended, imagine what you wouldn’t give to live just one more “simple” or ‘ordinary’ moment in this present time…


Start NOW, by treating every single moment, “ordinary” or EXTRAORDINARY, as if it were already your second chance at it! This way, you will know you are able to experience each moment fully… When that chance is over, you will have no regrets for not having taken the chance to live it fully!!

Ode to the Universe:

Reasons to be grateful for our life and our world…

My dear Universe,

Thank you for keeping every promise you make me;


Thank you for always knowing better than me, however little I care to realise it at the time, and for revealing the answers to me only when I am willing and ready to accept them;


I love you for keeping me in the minds of my loved ones when I am far, and me in theirs, that we may always be together in spirit;


Thank you for allowing me to see far enough into the future to begin to feel accomplishment for the goals I set myself in the present;

Thank you for not letting me forget too much of the past: enough to hold on to what is even more dear to me now than it was then, and to let go of what I needn’t keep once I’ve learned from it all that I can;


Thank you for remaining patient whilst we collectively work through our current state of progression, and for supporting us through our endeavours to better our overall existence, all the while trying to find ways to coexist;


Above all, thank you for filling life with unique, beautiful, memorable, inspiring, enlightening experiences, lifetime after lifetime, moment after moment, whether we believe, see it, feel it or not, continuously and unfailingly.

For all this and more, I thank you, dear Universe.
