"Live in the Now"

As we move into 2012, and we keep hearing about all of the many changes taking place, or about to take place, a phrase comes to mind “Live in the now” never before has this statement been so important! You see it is so easy to get caught up in the hype of 2012 and the Mayan Calendar. But the fact is does understanding any of it really matter? I say no, not really because what’s going to happen well, just is going to happen, right! All of this information and fascination is a distraction, a way of keeping us off the mark, and that won’t get us anywhere!

So, as we move forward into what promises to be an amazing year, anyway you slice it! I think we should employ this mantra “Live in the now”. But, what does that mean? It means we are to experience each moment as it is happening, and as we move through it, feel it, observe it. Pay attention to all of the details, for it is in the journey that we experience life. Everything in God’s world is in the now! Holding on to memories of the past can keep us locked in that place, reliving it! So if you have experienced failure in love, money, or health, etc., you will continue down that path unless you can clear those experiences, and replace them with affirmative thoughts. On the other side of the coin if you’ve experienced love, money, health, etc., will you then hold everyone to that standard, thus limiting the possibility of enjoying new experience that may look different? Or are you always thinking about tomorrow? Of course prepaving your future is good in the respect that you should have goals that you set for yourself. However to what extent? Do you walk around with blinders on only focused on that end goal? Of course not, that’s why we must “Live in the now.” Only in that place can life truly be experienced moment by moment.  

Throughout the day, keep an easygoing mental attitude. Seeking to let your inner voice guide you. Attempt to maintain peace and composure, knowing that if you do, the right answers will always come to you, and it that state you can be confident that all is truly well, now!

Final thoughts to remember; where am I? here and what time is it? Now

Let’s start this year off with the goal of living each moment, and seeing life for what it is, a journey. Explore more, feel more, be!
