I had a major shifting point in my life when I started reading more books on self-love, reflection and spirituality. One of the most profound, yet, simple books I read was Eckhart Tolle's Power of Now.
I remember struggling to comprehend a lot of what he was saying because it was so far from how my mind had made sense of the world prior.
Slowly, I realized the true power of being present. I realized that my body was the ultimate tool to fully connect with the now. The sensations, the sights, the smells, the tastes. When you fully drink it all in, your mind slows down to just being.
I drove here for a surf check in Baja and as I was walking back to my car, I looked up and it was like I hit a pause button. I was immediately enthralled by this sight. My mind went quiet as I stared at the grandiosity of the moon above the mountains and palms.
A beautiful thing when it all aligns.
