It is often difficult to be present in the moment
when our minds are constantly racing towards the future or dwelling
on the past. Sometimes it is hard to let go of certain things
that happen to us. We don't see the light in the situation because
we are paralyzed either by anger, sadness or some other negative
emotion. Our task, as we journey higher, is to seek the Creator's
Light in every situation, good or bad. I would like to offer
you a meditation that may help you to live in the here and the
now and may help you to infuse the Light into every moment, especially
the ones that make you want to run.
This is an ancient meditation and the goal is
to experience the Sh'chinah, the Creator's Presence, in every
moment and every situation. When we chant this, it is most powerful.
When we transform the words through daily practice into experience
of the Divine Presence, our lives can be dramatically affected.
Shiviti Adonai l'negdi tamid.
I have set Hashem before me always.
You can chant this as many times as you wish.
May this exercise help us to experience the Sh'chinah in every
moment and to remember an important truth: we are never alone.
