Techniques that help you get in the present moment, then how to take that feeling deeper. Before we can share the present moment with others we need to learn how to crate this feeling in ourselves first. Understand wht it is and how to simply be. What is the present moment. it is a state that creates a feeling of confidene and trust. It is right here right now. A clear state of being. Natural. One thing that moves your attention away from the here and now is your thinking. We move our thinking/attn/minds forwards and backwards in time. We can create strong feelings doing this. The present moment is a place of non-thinking. It is peace of mind. Physically, the body is in the right here and now. Emotions are thinking. Every bit of thinking that we create generates a feeling and we're wanting to reduce thinking/feeling. Spiritual is peace of mind or the extended gaps between our thoughts. It is/creates peace of mind. How do we get to the present, use the body to get to the present. This exercises puts your full attention/mind on your body. Still body equals a still mind. Focus on keeping your full attention on keeping motionless. Heart rate/breathing continue but everything else that you can consciously control, keep still. Practice statues. after 10 sections try thinking sbout tomorrow... were you able to do that? I bet it felt like you hit a wall, or that a part of you moved. Now we'll add a sense. Sound. 10 seconds. Then add touch. Touch--feeling of your hands on your thighs, your feet on the floor, weight on the chair, feeling of your clothing .
There is a bid difference between thoughts and thinking. This is one key understanding. Thoughts can drift into your mind, if you leave it, it floats away. If I engage in that thought, catch it and fuel it... that creates feelings. The trust technique is a zero state of feelings/thoughts. The best way not to engage in the thought is to be OK with it, recognize it, that it's OK and let it go.

The trust technique Be the present by focusing a still body, while listening and feeling the sensation of touch. When thoughts come up that is ok and let them go.

You'll need a pen and paper. Make a list of the non-peaceful thoughts that you might have. Examples... paying bill, the need to go shopping.
