Most of us live either in the past or in the future; it’s a fact, we either rewind to our past memories or wish for a better future.
Most importantly, we focus on what was, and how unpleasant events came to be. Or, we live in the future, indulging in wishful thinking or harboring fearful, uncertain thoughts about what might be.
Rarely do we focus on the present, on the ‘now’, as most of us only think of the past or future, instead of thinking about what we can do now to achieve our goals.
If we truly want to improve our lives, first of all, we must make certain changes; we have to think in the present about what we can do now to make it happen.
Saying “I’ll start this tomorrow,” will hardly make any significant change, for there is no end to procrastination, which becomes a habit.
Eckhart Tolle, in his book The Power of Now, writes, “Life is NOW. There was never a time when your life was not now. Nothing will ever happen in the future; it will happen in the now.” He also adds, “The quality of your consciousness at this moment is what shapes the future, which of course, can only be experienced as the now.”
Our search for answers ends with the present moment, says Eckhart, “You cannot find yourself by going into the past. You can find yourself by coming into the present.”
Even Mahatma Gandhi had said, “The future depends on what we do in the present.”
Truth be told, our present plays a very important role in our lives; otherwise we’ll spend our whole life just waiting to start living.
Live, Love, Create…Now is your time…go for it!!!
Wishing you ABUNDANCE of Love & JOY! 🙂
