As I look out my windows, I realize that the ONLY moment is right here, right now. There are no problems to solve, no issues or concerns – it is in my perception that there are “problems” only when I am in some past or future event in my mind. It takes being present and available to allow myself permission to Be and feel gratitude that makes me happy and joyful in this moment!
In my experience in the Now, I find that there are three understandings that can bring inner peace:
1. The Present moment is All we have.
It is the Gift of Life itself, when we allow ourselves permission to Be, with nothing here, except to take in our breath, and the beauty that surrounds us all day long, in every moment. As I was sitting here in front of my windows, looking out, I realized I had no issues, no “problems” to solve, no worries – that they were either in from the past or some future thought/event, I needed to “take care of”. What I learned is I am inner peace, balance and harmony in my Self and my life, because I simply allow it to flow through me as a choice!
2. Worry, stress and any feeling/thought is a choice and an illusion!
Choosing to be in the Now in every moment of our everyday lives is what is self-empowering and feeling good with ourselves. As I sit here, I feel a deeper sense of happiness, joy and gratitude for my life…in this moment, I feel Love for my Self, expansion for Life!
3. This Moment is the space where Happiness resides – Always!
Happiness lies not in a past or future thought or event; it is a choice to choose my thought/feeling perception in EVERY moment and I realize I am Powerful and Empowered in my life All the time! It takes commitment, courage, strength and faith in Self-trust to be in the Moment, allowing my Self to be here in this space!
In order to Be and stay in the Now, you will find that the Present Moment is a Gift itself, that worry, stress or “problems” are from past or future thoughts/feelings, events, and that one's happiness with oneself is always in the Now – right here, right now, when we Allow ourselves permission to Be and Receive this Moment of Love…and Life!
