If we spend the time that is a special occasion or holiday dreading it ending and not enjoying it, planning a better one next time, thinking of the next day, and then spending the time in between the special occasions/holiday/big thing waiting for that time to pass and hating each moment, what is the point of a special occasion or holiday? And what is the point of life?
It seems we are always wanting to deny the moment that is now, this present moment, we always are imagining a better one in the future or remembering one we had. But the memory is false, as the reality was, instead of enjoying that past moment then, we were actually at the time dreaming of a better one in the imaginary future.
Just enjoy now, leave the patterns of the mind, the imaginary story, and appreciate your surroundings, hear the noises and sounds, feel the air, sense the smells, notice the objects around you, hear, see, and just feel your inner energy and soul too. Magic is in this ‘ordinary’ present moment always, we just have to be conscious to observe and enjoy it. Stop looking and just see.
Let go of denying this moment, it is your real life.
