In the now

Challenges come, and they go. Everything passes.

The more we resist that process, the longer things stay a challenge.

When we focus on this moment and this moment only, there can never be a challenge that we can not deal with right now. Therefore, we take action or not and it is dealt with.

If we resist what is, if we do not accept what has already happened, if we put up a mental fight to it, then that denial prolongs whatever it is.

We can not change what has happened and what might happen will never come, now is it.

Allow the past to be that, the past, do not live in the fantasy of the future, it never comes…just be, in the now.

Life is mainly without incident

Our day to day life is mainly without incident in reality. If we are in the moment, that is now, our real-life and only life, there is rarely anything that is worth a worry or to be fearful about. After all, we can only experience life in this present moment, past and future are of the mind. Tomorrow, when we get there is now. Yesterday does not exist.

In fact, the more conscious we are and the more in this moment we focus, the more we can experience a life without any problems. If a situation arises, we tend to calmly deal with it or not. We accept what is, is, how can it be anything other than what it is and whatever has happened, has happened, it is in a past moment and therefore unalterable and only now exists as a memory in our mind, even if it was a second ago.

However, when we stay in our minds our life situation is made up of memories of the past or projections of the future and we are completely unaware of the present moment. Our lives are therefore in our mind and are full of worry, angst, fear, anxiety, jealousy, rage, emotions, suffering and all the other things that our mind will construct for us, blissfully unaware of the moment that we are in.

A simple, peaceful, calm and joyful life is here now for all of us in this precise moment, once we step into the mind, we choose to suffer.
