If we live in the now, as in this present conscious moment, then we can only have solutions to situations that arise right now. That’s real and can be dealt with or not, right now, and is free from suffering or anxiety and fear.
If we live in our mind and its endless repeating thought and projections into the unknown future that doesn’t exist outside our head, then we have a life filled with problems and suffering from the fear of what might happen. It’s out of our control and cannot be dealt with, it’s pure psychological fear.
Solutions happen now and are real, problems occur in the future and are generated in our mind. It’s a simple choice we can all make, now.
Whatever comes our way there is always a solution and when it is happening right now, the only time anything can happen, we always know what to do. We always deal with it right now or of course, we choose not to deal with it, but it’s happening now, so no thought, no fear, no worry, no what if…it’s happening.
The challenge in life is always created from a mental projection of the future, a time that does not exist, a time that nothing can happen, as it is not now and when we reach that point, it will still be now.
The projections into the future create psychological fear as it is something that can never be dealt with now. We suffer mental and then as a consequence, physically too. This then creates a compound effect and further suffering and anxiety come.
The only way to avoid this is to realise everything always happens now, and there is nothing that can happen that we can not cope with or deal or choose to do nothing about. As it is happening in this very instance there is no capacity or time to think about it. No thought means no suffering.
