Long Bay, Coromandel, New Zealand

As we grow older, the years of conditioned programming we have been exposed to take their toll. Our relentless thoughts and belief systems break down our bodies and our spirit. Our conditioning started at birth and continues year after year from the media, our friends and families, and our institutions. We begin to shrink from its weight. The expectations we had for ourselves were never fulfilled. We become frustrated and cynical. If we do not become aware, we will suffer. We will get a heart attack, a nervous breakdown, our relationship will be dysfunctional, or our lives will be dysfunctional. Life no longer seems to serve us. It seems like it has turned against us.

Relief is only a moment away. At any time, we can release all of our beliefs, ideas and judgments all at once, and immediately awaken to a new world. We can be reborn in this moment. All that we have to do is surrender our judgments and turn our awareness to the present. Awareness is simply our attention without judgment. Once we bring our awareness to the present, everything changes. The things that seemed so important no longer concern us. The things that frustrated and annoyed us do not bother us at all. We are in harmony with the Life Force. We glow from inside and from outside. Our health and vigor are renewed. We become stronger and more alert every day. We understand our life's purpose. Life unfolds before us in a fulfilling way.

Every moment is a new opportunity to be reborn. Why not this very moment?

Let's awaken right now.
