This necklace is a reminder to be present. If the moment is uncomfortable, frustrating, or boring, it’s easy to escape to memories of the past or imaginings of the future. However, the present moment, is where we find opportunities to learn and grow. It’s the only place we’ll ever live. When you feel this pendant resting near your heart, bring awareness to what’s happening now. Is your heart rate elevated or calm? Notice the breeze moving your hair. What is the softest sound you can perceive? What feelings are true for you in this moment and what are the sensations in your body?
The idea that “the moment is the perfect teacher” was explained to me in a more complete and moving way than ever before by the book, “When Things Fall Apart”, by Pema Chodron, and it inspired this necklace. For each sale, we donate $10 to the Pema Chodron Foundation.
