"Life isn’t about planning for a future that doesn’t yet exist or lamenting over the past. Happiness is now. It's yours. All you have to do is be aware of it. Be here. Now."
Being in the moment. I finally get it!
Being in the moment is trusting that the things you’ve put into place will come to fruition and be in the present. Look at something living – a tree, a bird, a bug, another human, yourself and appreciate its beauty, its magic, the wonder that is life. Feel your amazing body in all its glorious colours, textures and feelings.
See the energy pulsing out of living things. Why do we resent getting in car/train/bus to go to work? Because the metal of the vehicles disconnects our energy from all living things. There is nothing alive in a car. It is a mechanical and electrical wonder, especially since the automobile has only been around for 100 years or so. You ever wonder why people in convertibles look so free?
Because they aren’t cut off from the external world by air-conditioning and windows and doors.
The connection that we all seek – in relationships, jobs, family – anything that gives us meaning is in connecting in and around us. The wonder of your thousands of cells reproducing and dying, heart pumping blood and even your neurons firing in your brain as you read this blog. Life isn’t about planning for a future that doesn’t yet exist or lamenting over the past. Happiness is now. It's yours. All you have to do is be aware of it. Be here. Now.
It’s about embracing your divinity, your being-ness in your breath, your present, it’s about gratitude for the small things, the wonder of another person’s wisdom, of the oxygen that the trees provide in order for us to live and that relationship that we share with every living thing on the planet. It’s about following your passions, your loves, the things that bring you closer to this experience of bliss.
I get it! It’s not just a cognitive thought. It’s not just a concept that I know to be real. I am experiencing this as a reality. The irony of the moment is that the moment that you have awareness of the moment, it has passed.
Be in the present. Stop thinking about it. Feel that water hydrating your body, feel that breeze on your neck, be present with the people in your life. BE the glorious being that you are. Just Be.
