We all have those moments when we are in a beautiful natural setting or in a place of worship, or in the presence of someone we love deeply — and we feel a part of a larger, more expansive and holy reality. But these moments pass, and we find ourselves back in our mundane, everyday life.

The good news is that we can work at developing that deeper awareness on an ongoing basis. We can be intentional about catching ourselves when we slip into “automatic pilot” and invite a deeper engagement with the present moment. Each interaction with those we work with. Each time we visit a patient or family. Each time we send an email or attend a meeting or answer a phone.

To be fully present to that moment and to offer our highest self. Not only will this improve our work and our relationships, it will also elevate our sense of meaning and purpose and fulfillment in our work and our relationships.  May it be so!

Have a great week, everyone!
