If you had all the moments that have already passed you by in life again, you know when you say I wish I hadn’t wasted that time or I missed that I wasn’t paying attention, they’d still pass you by.
Unless you are in this moment, the one right now, as in the moment you are reading these words. Consciousness is the only way to appreciate the moments of life. Being awake and aware of your environment, your breathing, the sounds, the energy in your body, free from our thoughts, and focused.
We can’t have the ones that have gone, as they only exist as an image in our minds, and we can not have the ones yet to come, we can only have this one, enjoy it.
There’s no red light, no sign, no need to stop, no one forced us other than we all need to stop as often as we can.
The body has had enough, the soul has had enough, we just need to stop and go with that flow. Both our mind and the collective mind convince us we need to always be going.
We always think we have to go…go to work, go to sleep, go to the shops, go, go, go…go to anything as long as we do not stay here.
Where is the time to just be, to just appreciate being alive, to just look at our surroundings, to just live life? Where does all this going take us? Is it always better somewhere else? If it is, why when we get there, we immediately want to go again?
One day we’ll stop and that’s it. We will have missed the journey and all the magic on the way simply because we never stopped to appreciate the moment. Stop now and enjoy.
