The present makes us exist or exist in a certain place. Although we sometimes underestimate him,everything we do in our present will be our personal legacy.The present is the time for a sigh in our hands. We receive a world today, it will become our heritage tomorrow.
To live in the present implies to be aware of every situation, to be involved in it and to find our eternity in every moment. The careless stay on their island of opportunity while looking at other territories.There is no other territory. There is no other life than this one.
The present is the time for a sigh in our hands and sometimes it escapes us because of a future that is torturing us and a past to which we give the power to bind us.
"Two monks continually pray, one is worried, the other smiles, the first asks," How is it possible that I live anguish and you and you happy if we both pray the same number of hours? "The other responds:" It is that you always pray to ask, I pray on the other hand only to thank. "Share
Forever is composed of "maintainers"
Although it is difficult for us to understand the physical dimension of time represented by the succession of states, life is now.There never was a moment where our life was not now. And it will never exist.
"Life is not in another place but in this place, it is not in another hour, but in this hour."Share
Our present vanishes like the time of a sigh in our hands while we waste our time thinking in excess in past or future situations.We must stop and think about the number of things we stop doing because of past memories or fear of the future.
"We are always preparing to live, but we never live."-Ralph Waldo Emerson-
Being present in all things and grateful for them
We will only be vaguely aware of the moment if our happiness consists of ironing memories and expectations. Since we have the habit of looking ahead and behind, we will continue to have a limited awareness of the present when the things will happen,while we could really appreciate them or learn from them.
Awareness of the future and the past makes us less aware of the present. We have to start asking ourselves if we are really living in the real world. The present is the time for a sigh. It seems eternal today but will be ephemeral tomorrow.
Being present in our reality requires practice as we spend our life giving free rein to thoughts that are not there.To thank for what we have at the moment is an excellent first step to becoming fully aware of the thousands of nuances of our daily lives.Shades that escape us because we think of something that has already happened or something that has not even happened.
"Gratitude is the memory of the heart."-Lao Tse-
We could all probably be angry at something that happened to us. But why remain angry at something that is no longer there? Let us be present in all things and grateful for them. The secret of the health of mind and body is not to complain about the past. Not to worry about the future and not to anticipate problems. It's about living in the present moment with seriousness and wisdom.
"Do not stay in the past, do not dream of the future, focus your mind on the present."-Siddharta Gautama-
