Present and mindful

sermon note taking piece
What if? Such a great question.

Present and mindful is a go-to habit for every second of every day.


Being present is a great tool for shedding life’s negativity.


Son, you will encounter milestones when you question people you have always trusted. Your friends will present to you behavior you never saw coming. Take your surprise and simply trust.


Trust the Universe, God, Karma, or whatever positive energy you believe in.

Do not cry out nor try to defend yourself, for wisdom teaches it will only enlarge the surprise.

Thank God for the present moment.

The blessing is unexpected truth-revelation.

Be remarkably grateful.

The long haul with Covid’s impact (the great resignation, mask/no mask, vax/no vax, etc, various locally shared issues, personal issues, and now WW3 looming with Russia…life, worry, fear, anxiety…humanity is being crushed by the never-ending weight of world order and decency disappearing.

After momentary denial, the realization that it’s really decent

What’s our trend? Change? Consistency? Growth? Purpose?


Ever surprise yourself by something you said but don’t remember?

Something that the other source shows you without a doubt that you said it?

And what you exclaimed to yourself, “I said that!?”

After momentary denial, the realization that it’s really decent.

Decent enough to inspire you, the author.

Ever happen?

Roger Parker, from Published and Profitable, has been a cyber-mentor for several years now.  He doesn’t even know this.

Not because I’m trying to hide the fact.  Simply because I’m busy. Roger’s busy.  Busy makes us do strange things.  Like forget to tell people how much we appreciate what they’ve done for us.

But that’s what makes the Internet so cool.  You can have a positive influence on others, whether you meet them or not.

Tomorrow though, be prepared for the shock of your life.

And while it really applies to anything that’s important to you, tomorrow’s post will be particularly revealing if you have very important things you want to do in your life, but have been putting off.  Carpe diem.
