Being in the now is forever inspiration to me. Do you ever walk, drive or ride and you really look around yourself? Do you really see a tree or a flower? Not just notice it, but really see? Do you ever breathe in the moment now, or you wish to be in another better moment?
I struggle with this as well, because it a constant reminder, until it becomes like breathing, automatically. I am finally in situation where I think I can do, be and have whatever I want. So imagine knowing you can, but really struggle to get there, not just get there, but you are confused what steps you should take to get there? I know I am not the only one, I know. We all struggled to believe in ourselves, but now when we do believe in ourselves, we struggle to get the life we really want.
“Accept — then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it. Make it your friend and ally, not your enemy. This will miraculously transform your whole life.”
I don”t know about you, but I am seeing signs all over the place. Just today I saw big billboard on the bus that said: “Build your future one step at a time!” And it hit me. It is all true. We often times want to be there tomorrow, but it doesn”t go this way, we need to learn out lessons and give everything time to fall into place. I know it is easier said that done. But try to relax now, you always build your future within now. It is always now. It is always now that you create tomorrow. It is always now that you create in a month time. It is always now that you create in 5 years time. Only what we have is now.
I am listening an audio book called “The power of now” by Eckhart Tolle now for the third time and it is absolutely amazing. Please do your future self a favor and listen to this book. You future self will thank you for.
When I want to buy a book, I always like to go on a site called Book Depository. I like this site because it ships worldwide for free and it has a millions upon millions books to choose from. Here is the link (affiliate link) where you can search for book “The power of now” by Eckhart Tolle.
“It is not uncommon for people to spend their whole life waiting to start living.”
Why we often times think there is something wrong with the now, that there is always something missing with the now, that it is not good enough? Are we really gonna forever stay in the lack of everything if we always want more? Yes, we do! How will you appreciate more if you don”t appreciate what you already have? You can”t! Because you will always be in the lack.
I will never forget the day when I for the first time heard silence. That was like, omg, such a beautiful sound. It was only then that I heard, and knew, was aware of, how was I living before, in total noise. Noise in my head.
Or, maybe that’s just my experience, but you get the point. We have moments throughout our day when our minds are not focused on the important stuff, like our families.
“Die to the past every moment. You don’t need it. Only refer to it when it is absolutely relevant to the present. Feel the power of this moment and the fullness of Being. Feel your presence.”
