Be Here Now!If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present. ~Lao Tzu, ancient Chinese philosopher. It never ceases to amaze me how much precious time we spend playing out our dramas, worrying about how our body looks, seeking adoration, justifying our actions, complaining about our slow internet connection – and I’m guilty of all of these at one time or another – when actually we’re sitting in the middle of a full-blown miracle that is happening right here, right now!
We are alive! Our hearts beat on a regular rhythm. We can see! We have love, laughter, language, computers, compassion, cars, food, flowers, music, medicine, and on and on… We live in a limitless Universe overflowing with miracles!
The Universe loves us so much, and wants us to partake in the miraculous so badly, that sometimes she delivers little wake up calls. Like in the movie Scrooge where Ebenezer Scrooge wakes up after his dreams and goes crazy trying to make up for his past behavior.
I know many people who have been in an accident and struggled to survive, who now speak of it as though it was one of their most profound live-changing experiences. Not that I’d wish something like that on anyone, but take heart – we can still learn without the horrific accidents.
The Universe has surrounded us with the most amazing teachers.
Animals are a good example of that. They are in the present all the time, and their secret power is to pull us in with them.
My daughter’s dogs are so happy to see her every single time she walks in the door it’s like she’s been gone for years, even if she’s only been gone an hour. You’re here. I’m here. I love you. I’m gonna pee all over the floor about it!
Little kids are also excellent teachers. Kids get so wrapped up in the joy of drawing or pretending or discovering that they’d never eat or take a bath or sleep if we didn’t make them.
They are constantly creating in a state of free-flowing, concentrated bliss, they haven’t yet learned to worry about what others think or perhaps they’re not as talented at finger painting as Susie next door is. They are in the moment. There is fun in the moment. End of story.
Everything we are so worried about creating and are fixated on becoming are already right here, right now. The money you want already exists; the person you want to meet is already alive; the experiences you want to have are available, now. The life you want is right here, right now.
The more practiced you become at being present and connected to Source Energy, the more available you are to recognize ideas and seize opportunities that you might miss out on if you’re all wrapped up in the endless chatter is your head.
When we get so wrapped up in our heads, we miss out on what’s available to us right now in the moment.
Stop and notice how you feel right now. Feel your breath moving in and out of your body. Feel the air on your skin. Feel your heart beating. Shut off your thoughts and feel your connection to Source.
Even if you’ve got massive credit card debts or you haven’t spoken to your mother in six years, right now, in this moment, you can find peace and joy in that which simply is.
The more time you spend in the moment, the richer your life will be.
Being present gets you out of your head and connects you to Source Energy, which raises your frequency, which attracts things of like frequency to you. All those high-frequency things and experiences are already here, just waiting for you to join the party. All you have to do is shut up, show up, and usher them in.
