If I'm truly present, then I'm experiencing the bliss of the moment. There isn't any anywhere to go but this very moment. There's nothing to wait for. It's in this moment that I can take action steps toward my goal, and if I'm present in this moment, each action step can be filled with joy and peace.
Remember that many of life's miracles often do not happen quickly; they require patience. Illnesses and wounds heal best with patience. Life often reveals its mysteries with patience. Difficult problems sometimes solve themselves with patience. We grow into healthy, functioning adults with patience.
