Imagine, if it was your last day on earth, how would you spend it? Would you waste it in meaningless gossip and chat? If it were our last day, we would focus on the important things in life. We would suddenly be very clear what is important to us. Material possessions lose all meaning – they are merely passing things; but our inner practice, our inner faith and inner peace become all important.
“Spiritual life says the best time is always this present moment. It is now Or never.”
If we don’t take this opportunity, we won’t have it again.
Remember, every moment is an opportunity – either we take it or miss it. In one sense, we have eternity to achieve realization. If we get an opportunity to view or change our attitude – then we should take it now, while we have the aspiration. If we miss out, perhaps in a few days, we will lose any enthusiasm or willingness to change.
Giving yourself to the present moment is the best gift of all—it’s the resolution that lasts a lifetime, every minute of every day. It’s in the present that all things become possible.
“Do not dwell on the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” – Gautam Buddha
Live Your Life in the Present Moment
Living in the present moment supports an attitude of surrender and acceptance of the constant reality shift of one’s surroundings. As stress is very largely a result of resisting the present, an attitude of letting things go can be helpful.
The right time is right now, what are you waiting for?
