I wish to bring in your notice one of the most important thing that your success, happiness, joy & bright future is completely dependent on your ability to pay attention to the present, now or this moment, whatever you may call it.
You can wake up at any moment just by paying attention to your immediate experience. You can do it right now. What’s happening this moment? Think of yourself as an external witness & just observe the moment. What do you see, hear or smell? Find what you are doing? It doesn’t matter how it feels—pleasant or unpleasant, good or bad—you roll with it because it’s what’s present; you’re not judging it. And if you notice your mind wandering, bring yourself back. Just say to yourself, “Now. Now. Now.”
If you closely & honestly observe yourself, you will find that you are too busy at any given time to practice what matters you the most. Also that most of your time is constantly slipping away from your hands unobserved, unutilized & unseized. Please understand that because you are used to something & doing it regularly doesn’t mean it is good for you, or this is the right way to live. Correct it darling… You still have time!
I know like everyone else, you too know this already that it’s important to live in the present moment, but the problem is how?
Let me try to explain you.
To remain mindful, active & open in any moment is called living in now. This means doing something intentional in every moment. This means enjoying & savouring everything that you have now. Becoming aware of your breathes & being more alive is called living in now.
NOW is all you have to express your love, give your love & feel all the love you have. 🤗
Believing this firmly in your heart & practising this truly will make you more happy, emphatic & joyful. This will reduce your anxiety & stress also.
Remember that worries, by nature, means thinking about the future & if you can uplift yourself into awareness of the present moment, most of your worries will automatically melt away.
What it means in other words is that you need to stop focusing on your anxieties, mental chatter, negativity in the room & reduce your habit of bashing yourself for everything to be a significant part of this greater universe & to play your role expressively & significantly.
When you practice living in moment, you respond thoughtfully instead of rashly or foolishly. I mean your focus on present will make you less aggressive & decrease your ego involvement. You stop reacting egoically & linking your prestige to every happening & start taking everything at it’s face value. You stop pursuing things for your selfish motives which actually unsettle the entire process. You need to reduce your recklessness, improve your interpretations & reactions, desist from lashing out in anger, backing down in fear or mindlessly indulging in your stupid cravings. If you can learn to find spark before the fire & control it, you will be successful at anything.
Your living in present moment is bound to increase your thoughtfulness, mindfulness & your self-control. In turn you will be able to regulate your behaviours & will improve your interactions appreciably with your world.
To remain & live in present moment meaningfully & mindfully also require that you have a SMART goal (challenging but not unattainable) which force you to explore your abilities, talents, resources & stretch you to achieve in your present.
Because it will let you set a flow in reaching your goals by defining every next step very clearly. It is similar to changing the gear automatically if you are driving a bike or finding the next foothold if you’re climbing a rock, or turning the page if you’re reading a good novel. Without much of the efforts, you will know your successes & failures quickly so that you can seamlessly adjust your behavior & actions in a second. A climber on the mountain knows immediately if his foothold is secure, a pianist knows instantly when she’s played the wrong note. Isn’t it living in present moment? I wish you gain personal mastery & your all activities become substantially rewarding. I would be very happy if you continuously fire all cylinders to rise up, shine & create the ideal powerful self.
Wherever you are, commit to being there, completely. Life will take care of the rest. Stay Blessed! 💐💐
