Present Moment Awareness

Let’s break down the meaning of present moment awareness.

Hello, Spiritual Warrior!

One of my favorite teachings comes from the ancient text The Bhagavad Gita:

YOGASTHA KURU KARMANI, which means establish yourself in the present moment, and then perform action. It speaks to being mindful with every action that we take.

Let’s break down the meaning of this:Present Moment Awareness

Yogastha = establish yourself in yoga/union/oneness/the present moment
Kuru = then perform
Karmani (karma) – action

In the Bhagavad Gita, Arjuna has a situation in which he finds himself confused and challenged. Krishna offers him this advice when he doesn’t know what to do: Yogastha Kuru Karmani. Establish yourself in the present moment, and then perform action.

Often our heart and our commitments have the ability to create conflict in our lives – our heart tells us one thing, but our mind and our circumstances tell us another.

When you need to make a decision, become present, and then perform action.

And then whatever decisions you make, be there fully. You have to show up with all of your heart – both for yourself as well as for others. Follow your heart and bring it with you everywhere you go.
