A new friend once told me her goal in life was to get the most out of living. We chatted about travel, and love, and fine things, and eventually she said, "You know, I guess the best way to live fully is to be really present for your experience." Thus began a long, deep friendship.
Commercials would have us believe that wholehearted living takes gusto, enthusiastically grasping what we want. When we're talking about opening to whatever is in the moment (without any grasping), what is the right approach? What about days when we're tired or sick or distracted by powerful emotions? Can we live wholeheartedly even on off days?
Come this Sunday with a friend and we'll explore this question together.
