Why You Need To Live In The Present Moment(2)

flower

The Present is All That Exists

You have memories, you will have feelings when you think about the past, you may worry about the future but let's face it the past no longer exists. You can't step back in time and go into the past. The past is done with. It doesn't exist.

You can't step into the future and see what happens. Despite what so called psychics and astrologers say there is no way of seeing the future or living in the future. It hasn't happened one day that future will arrive and if you're not paying attention, if you're too focused on the past or still worrying about the future you'll miss it completely.

The only thing that is taking place right now is the present moment. As you read this newsletter that's all that you are doing. When you are done the moment that you are currently experiencing will never happen again! The now will never happen again! Your present moment will never happen again!

Even when you think about the past you think about it in the present moment. You don't physically go back in time and remember the past. You only remember the past in this present moment.

When you think about the future you do it in the present moment not in the future.

When you think about the past and the future you are wasting the valuable time and power that you have in the present moment.

The only reason people are unhappy is because they fail to live in the present moment, they fail to embrace the now.

Instead, they often think about what their present moment should be and allow their ego to dominate them thus the unhappiness sets in.

It is impossible to have a problem and live in the present moment at the same time. When you live in the present moment your attention is completely focused on what is happening at that very moment. There are no thoughts of the future or the past. If you are at work - focus on work. If you are at home focus on the home. If you are with friends focus on your friends.

When you do this your subconscious mind is released and free to start working on improving your life.

When you are focused on the past or worried about the future the subconscious is lost in confusion. It doesn't know what you want and is forced to go from present to past and present to future without being given the time or ability to create the situations you need to improve your life in the present moment. You never allow your subconscious to function in the present moment - which is the only place that it can work.

Focus on the present moment.

Allow your subconscious mind to work for you everyday by working with the power of the present moment.

Begin directing your subconscious to help you achieve your goals

Many of you may be seeking answers, trying to make decisions or just hoping to discover a passion that you can follow.

All of these answers come when you live in the now - when you are focused on the present moment you will receive your answers.

You can't step back into the past or step into the future to receive these answers, they only come in the present moment.

But if you're focused on the past or consumed with the future then when the answer is delivered you'll miss it.

Why?

Because you were not living in the present moment - this is where you can receive the answer.

If you want to start directing your subconscious mind and if you want to stop living in the past and start living in the now then you need to take control of your mind and subconscious mind and begin creating the life you want

How You Can Live In The Now

If you're ready to start living in the now and begin creating the life that you want then take a look at your present situation and ask yourself what's wrong with the very moment you are in.

Don't think about what happened yesterday or sometime in the past. Don't focus on what might or might not happen tomorrow. Take a look at the very moment you are in not 5 minutes from now and see if there is anything wrong. If you are at home is there something wrong?

Don't say you are out of work that's not the present moment because you are looking at what is not happening.

I want you to focus your mind on what is happening then see what is wrong with that picture.

You should find nothing wrong with the present moment it is what it is and once you accept it you can start living again.

Let's face it you can't turn your mind off but you can get it to work differently and that's what you should start doing.

Because if you don't take control of your mind your mind will control you and that's not going to help you improve your life.

Ask yourself these next questions:

Do you find yourself waiting for something to happen?

Are you waiting to get some more time? Make more money?

Meet the right person? Are you waiting for the right opportunity?

Waiting is another game the mind plays because it doesn't want to live in the present moment.

If you answered yes to any of the above questions then you're not living in the present moment you are focusing on anything but the present moment.

I know you can't focus on the present moment or live in the now 24 hours a day. But start by doing this for a few minutes a day and then continue expanding the exercise everyday.

Then track your progress. See how you feel when you only focus on what is happening right now. As you continually do this you'll see yourself starting to enjoy the process.

Here's a suggestion. The next time you are driving or walking pay attention only to what is happening around you. Listen to the sounds, observe the people. Don't think about what you have to do or what happened yesterday or what might happen tomorrow or what might happen in five minutes.

Focus your attention only on what is happening right now. Doing this will get your mind to start living in the present moment and before you know it you'll be able to focus your mind and utilize the power of now.

Start utilizing the power of now - you'll be more focused and you'll enjoy the present moment. Best of all you'll start moving toward achieving your goals and living the life you want.
