    This short storyTwo Drops of Oilauthored by Paulo Coelhomakes me aware of enjoying the wonders of the world without losing the core of my being, the essence of my being, the Two Drops Oil in my spoon. When I get caught up in the outer world by losing the center of myself I deprivemyselfof the fullness and richness of my experience. Then I am not fully present with myself. Half lived life is not worth living.

    When I meditate I tastethe fullness of the present moment. Innerand outer distractions fade away and I am in the flow of the present. When I am fully present with someone close to me, I feeldeep connectednessbetween both of us. Such experiences are enriching and fulfilling.When I walk in nature mindfully I am fully present. I get deeply connected with nature.

    In this busy world it is hard to find alone time, a time in which I can be myself without distractions and demands. I carve my own time to be with myself fully. This way I fill the cup of my life and gladly share it with others without expecting anything in return. Loving someone unconditionally fills my heart with joy.
