2019 like 1843, 1031, 2039 BC and so on are all history, they no longer exist, except as a memory or a memory of something we read or were told about a past year. They are just mental forms, temporary like all, and are mythological like time itself. They are human mind constructs.

None of that matters unless you attach yourself to the past. If you make attachments, then the past will allow your ego to shape your life and control it. If we accept that everything that happened and existed up to this moment now no longer exists apart from in our mind, then we can choose to let go of it by not energising it. Anything within our mind is within us and the real you and I can control it no the other way round, it is a choice.

‘I had a bad 2019’ or ‘2019 was great’…neither matter, it is the past, gone and as you read this, it is now, as in the eternal present moment. Even when we get to 1 hour from now, it will be now, it will be the present moment, the only moment that you are ever alive. Past and future exist only in the mind.

It won’t matter what year it is, day of the week, hour, minute, second…that is just the surface of our life situation, our real life is always in the moment that is now. Thus if we accept now, embrace it and allow the inner joy that is always there to flow in our consciousness, then what happens in 2019, 2020, 2030 so on does not matter, it will not affect our inner state of joy, it only disrupts the mythical unreal world of the time-bound life situation that we all think is ‘normal’ life.

2019, except for this moment right now no longer exists. Accepting that will bring you constant joy and peace, not an unconscious mind-controlled life that gets its very existence from what has already happened and suffers from it.

I’ll do it later

One day, it comes to an end.

One day, we realise that we have no more chances.

One day, we know that there will not be a tomorrow.

Is today that one day?

Most of us do not know.

So what if this was the last day?

What would you regret not starting?

What would you regret not saying?

Now is our life, not yesterday, not tomorrow. Now is the only moment that we can alter, now is the only moment we can start something, do something, say something.

Our lives are made up of continuous ‘now’ moments, each one a unique moment in time that we can do anything we choose. Or, do nothing.

It is entirely of our own making, every moment of every day for a lifetime. Strung together, it forms what happens in our journey, but they pass immediately into the past never to come back.

The future never happens, as it is that, the future and there are no guarantees for anyone. The future is shaped by what we do now.

10 minutes ago, 1 hour ago, 1 week ago, your entire life to this point, you can not alter, it’s gone.

We can not do everything we want in the ‘now’ moment, we can only do a single thing, but each bit of procrastination, each moment we allow ourselves to say ‘I’ll do it later’ is a ‘now’ moment in our life gone forever.

Later never comes, do whatever you can do, now.
