What might happen if we all took 30 seconds each day to be silent, listen, appreciate, and celebrate the present moment?

I read a book one summer that changed the way I taught, because it changed the way I viewed life. I learned about “becoming present” in everyday life. I learned about surrendering past memories as a mere construct of my brain; a brain obsessed with overthinking about either the past or the yet-to-exist future. I had to appreciate the present moment, and to do that, I had to let go of the misconception that “I” existed in my brain, and embrace that I was more than my mind – I was the consciousness behind my mind. Full story.
