Finding the Space to live in the Moment
We can never get enough, we can never be just perfectly happy with what we will have, will gain, will win. We can only find happiness, the sort that lifts your heart and makes you feel lighter than you did in the hours before, when we discover the power of the moment. That precious moment we are living within right now, right now you can choose to be happy.
The choice is ours and ours alone. No one can push us away from our source, our true path of joy unless we allow them to. That can be the hardest part, realizing our own joy and happiness in this life comes not from other people. From husband or wives or children, but from within our very being. Happiness is as much a mental rewiring as it is a state of being.
Living within the moment, capturing each second of stress, joy, triumph and failing brings us deep, fully rooted joy. However, if we are naturally more hectic and hurried it can be hard to figure out how to approach life from within the moment.
Does anything come to mind when you begin trying to be more focused in your lifestyle approaches?
Sometimes our first reactions can tell us more than you would imagine. When you face a happy situation how does your mind react? Are you happy, distracted by the what-if's or worried about the future? Staying in the moment involves getting into the moment. It is not just a place we naturally land in for many of us.
Look at a dog, they are fully in the moment. There is no concern with what will come in five minutes or five years. Toss out your ten year plan and accept that any control you believe you have over your life is an illusion. Break the illusion and liberate your heart to live freely in each second.
If you feel your days are too packed and hurried to allow for any space of quiet feeling then de-clutter your days. What can you take out of your day-to-day life that will free up emotional and mental space?
Life is too short to not put the effort in where it matters. Taking in the moment, living fully not for what has been or could be but what is, right now, that will bring out the joy already within you.
