Embracing the present is a pretty tall order for most of us, especially if our present situation is riddled with pain. But if we think about it, what is the point of trying to resist this moment? It is already in play; it cannot be altered. We only sink deeper into our ego when we try. We might think our reality is dark now, but when we resist it, we lose the only light we have to light our way, the light of the Soul.
