Be in the present moment. Don’t think about the destination, just enjoy the journey.
Someone I love very much pointed out to me yesterday that I think about the past and fear of it repeating itself a little too much. And that when I think about the future too much as well, I am never in the present moment. And he was right to point this out.
When we are in the present moment, we are more aware and see clues that we normal miss. These clues are what will help us on our spiritual journey. I was having a tough day a few days ago. And spoke to a friend of mine, who pointed out that I was being given clues as to what I need to work on. And what tools to use. After she pointed this out, I realized she was right. I was freaking out and panicking over a lesson that I was being shown that I need to overcome. That I needed to learn. Again, yesterday, I was being given another tool as to what I need to work on. Both were about…..being in the present.
When we live in the past, we get depressed and sad because we wish that things turned out differently. That things worked out for us. That certain things stopped repeating itself. Yet, it always did! But, we don’t see the lessons we needed to learn at that moment. To overcome that lesson and learn it; so that we can move onto the next one. And by constantly thinking that things will repeat itself, we manifest that.
When we live in the future, we have lots of anxiety. We are constantly worrying about what will happen? Will it work out or not? Will things repeat itself, yet again? Will we have that happily ever after? Or will we be alone? Will we be financially secure in the future? Or will we be okay? We are constantly reaching for that future and missing out on what we are given now.
When we live in the present we are more aware of the beauty of life. Of who and what we have in our life. And when we are happy, in the present, we make room for more happiness to come.
We are souls that are experiencing life in human form.
When we are not present we are trapping ourselves in our mind and therefore allowing our ego to get to us. Our ego likes to control things and people. It is impatient and it knows it’s time is limited. It focuses on the past and the future. Whereas our soul is patient and focuses on the now.
Our ego is our false self. Our soul is our true self.
Your mind is ego based and keeps playing tricks on you. And tries to protect you from things. When all it’s doing is hurting you more. Your heart is soul based and when you listen to your gut, your intuition, it will lead you to where you need to go. Stop allowing your thoughts to control you. When you think about yesterday, you are living in the past. When you think about tomorrow, you are focusing on the future. So, be in the present.
Enjoy the little moments that happen. See what you have, rather than what you don’t have. Stop chasing what your mind wants and allow what you soul needs, to come.
Train your mind to stop thinking negative thoughts and the things that you fear. Train your mind and be more aware of your thoughts. And control them. Then you will be more in the now. Rather than in your ego.
Take time out for just a moment each day. Take a walk out in nature. Enjoy the sun rays, the beautiful blue sky, the animals around you. The breeze blowing on a hot day. The water flowing. The storm coming. The rain pouring. The noises of kids playing and souls going about their day. Enjoy the walks with your partner. The private moments between you and them. Being in that awe state. Stop checking social media. Turn off the devices. And enjoy the people around you, and the silence if you are alone. The clock ticking. The pets sleeping. Life.
Smile, laugh and be in the present…..
