Being present

"Presence XII"

Years ago I was blessed to discover the wonderful book by the great spiritual director Jean-Pierre de Caussade called Abandonment to Divine Providence or sometimes published as The Sacrament of the Present Moment. I recommend it highly. Here's a brief excerpt:
The present moment holds infinite riches beyond your wildest dreams but you will only enjoy them to the extent of your faith and love. The more a soul loves, the more it longs, the more it hopes, the more it finds. The will of God is manifest in each moment, an immense ocean which only the heart fathoms insofar as it overflows with faith, trust and love.
