Harness the power of 'now'

A lot of us live in the future... sometimes years in the future. Our heads are constantly bustling with plans, aims, ambitions and often, impatient frustrations that we haven't yet made it where we want to be. We are on a hamster wheel of achievement and a quest for personal significance. Each day we go out into the world and fight for what we believe we need to do or who we believe we need to be. And living is hard - no matter who you are, or what you have! Life can be a roller-coaster that can chew you up and spit you out.

We get so caught up in a whirlwind of our 'stuff' that we simply forget how to grasp the power of 'now'. People who live in the future often do not do so in a positive light. Many people imagine horrible things and think of all the obstacles that they face and the events that they're dreading. They manifest all their fears and worse possible scenarios. They use their vision of the future to erode their plans and sabotage themselves.

But, if they just allowed themselves to step into the 'now'! They'd remember beauty is now! Heaven is now!

Remember some of the happiest days you've ever had. Isn't it true that during those days you lived totally in the 'now'? Remember your thoughts, your feelings and your emotions. On those amazing days - you cast aside the past, you postponed your future, you threw a big, hard rock at the nagging question of 'consequence' and you dived headfirst into the beauty of the day.

In the 'now' fear and ungratefulness disappear; love and compassion flows. The 'now' brings a tsunami of crystal clarity and an injection of deep understanding to any problem that you have been wrestling with. The 'now' rinses your soul, freshens you up and gets you battle-ready for more of life's challenges.

So, what are you waiting for?

Sit up straight, close your eyes, clear your thoughts, smile big and dip your toes into the heaven of now.

You'll remember - you ARE the world, you ARE the light, you have infinite power, infinite possibilities and more love than you could ever imagine.
