The ego seeks a certainty in the future for peace.
The spirit accepts what is now, stops resisting, surrenders and knows that peace is always deep within no matter what.
We do not have to wait for this or that to happen in our imagined futures, our spirit can have peace right now.
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.
