The Wisdom of Savouring
Here's the Deal: What you do not savor, you will not retain.
It's a neurological fact. Our brain immediately bonds with everything negative (it's how our survival brain works). It's why fear, anger, and depression can win so easily.
Anything good and positive that we want to remember has to be savored. This brings our hearts into the equation.
If you want to remember the feeling of any good thing: of love, joy, and peace... it has to be savored. So linger in the moment, allowing your heart to expand.
This is the heartbeat of contemplation...to savor the warm loving embrace of God's love. We embody it.
Spirituality never runs on automatic. We have to be totally present in this moment to be alive.
So intentionally savor all the good things in your life.
Remembering moves us into the eternal living present. This is the internal meaning in Jesus' words, "Do this in remembrance of me."
Savor and enter in.
