When we truly accept this present moment for what it is without any resistance, when we do not seek to deny it and wish for different, when we stay away from the psychological fear that is always our mind’s projection into the future, only then can we enjoy true inner peace. When we fully surrender, then peace comes.
All that is real and true is contained in this moment, it is the only moment that anything can exist and it’s the only moment we can experience or do anything.
Fall madly and completely in love with this moment…it is our true essence and our real conscious life.
Now will unfold forever.
One step at a time is all that life requires.
All too often our mind is already several steps, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and sometimes even years ahead of the moment we are in.
This results in us not even being conscious of the moment we are in.
The mind is perhaps looking forward to dinner or a date or a holiday (maybe not now!!) so the ‘ordinary’ moment is denied and not noticed. The trouble is, when we are at dinner or the date, instead of appreciating that moment, the mind has already moved on.
This process, if left uninterrupted, leads to a lifetime of never appreciating our real life that is now.
Our mind can become a conveyor belt that whisks us past our real life in a constant blur of thought.
Stop the conveyor and jump into this moment.
