This is #17 of 108 Ways to Livin’ the Moment. Let’s take back our lives one beautiful, funny and delicious moment at a time.

#17 of 108: Sailing Into a Hurricane.

We may be floating on Tao, but there is nothing wrong with steering. If Tao is like a river, it is certainly good to know where the rocks are.

~ Dent Ming-Dao

In 2005, I was leading a yoga retreat to Tulum. Our group went to sleep one night knowing a small Category One hurricane was hundreds of miles off the coast. No biggie.

The next morning we woke up to discover it had jumped four categories overnight to become Hurricane Wilma, a Category Five monster with 175 mph sustained winds.

Worse, we were right in its path and with very little time to evacuate.

Suffice to say, you don’t want to be in the path of a Category Five hurricane.

There’s a different type of weather in our lives, invisible to the eye, but with conditions equally as affecting to the soul as a hurricane’s battering winds are to the body.

One in touch with this spiritual weather knows how to lie low on bad days and navigate through dark nights.

One out of touch with the “spiritual weather” has spent one too many days feeling as if they are sailing right into a hurricane. Can you relate?

Watch the following short video on how to check the spiritual weather when you rise and shine.

Be a Momenteer.

For the past several months, I have been asking those of you interested in starting a little revolution to become a Momenteer.

As our world becomes more advanced and more high-tech, there has to be a group of people (maybe you?) who advocate for the present moment, the simple pleasures, the importance of making humanity more important than technology.

And hey, this is not that we stop using technology. But that technology stops using us.

To find out how you can save a seat on the arc and become a Momenteer, email yeahdave@mac.com and write Momenteer! in the subject.

And to those of you who have already signed on, next week you will be receiving something very inspiring. Stay tuned!
