Our scriptures tell us to live “in the moment”.
But from personal experience, I can say that most of these “in the moments” are fleeting, momentary!
How to make these moments more permanent?
Two words, as per a lovely article I came across. 1) gratefulness and 2) wonder
These are the secrets to living in the moment. Living in gratitude means that we pay attention to everything around us, and wholeheartedly agree on the impeccable design of creation, bringing strong feelings of satisfaction.
Living in wonder on the other hand means a state of heightened awareness, observing the world around us with fresh eyes of curiosity, delight and contemplative attention.
“A sense of wonder is connected to our desire to feel a part of something larger than our everyday reality and we take time to be immersed in this, and yes, to be grateful for this.”
