Reader comment on Carolyn Hobbs's passage ...

Stepping into the Present Is a Gift

Dealing with my ego is a daily activity. I agree that it does fear the present. When we are fully present we are naked emotionally and spiritually. We have nothing to clothe ourselves with, not our past successes or failures nor our future hopes, anxieties and dreams. In the present we have the opportunity to be just ourselves and to truly accept and appreciate what is before us and within us. This confuses ego as it continually wants to take us elsewhere. The ability to meditate and just observe this phenomena is the beginning to better understanding and living alongside our ego. Little by little it's hold on us will diminish and our ability to be truly present will become easier and more enjoyable.
