Time is flying by, or so it seems. And yet, the present moment is always with you. It is precisely you, in your present moment, who are the main event in your life. In fact, your present moment is the only place where real things happen in your entire life. You might claim that the bacon and eggs you ate for breakfast are real, or that your anticipated visit to Hawaii or to the corner pub is real. Yet the fact remains that everything that has ever happened to you, and whatever might happen to you, happens precisely in your present moment.
You may claim that last month’s trip to the zoo was the most important thing that happened to you. However, it is just one of the many events that shaped you and the circumstances that surround you in the present moment. Your past will never be anything more than a fleeting, or distracting memory.
You may argue that the promotion you anticipate next month is the most important thing in your life, and yet, the only thing that is relevant to that promotion is what you are doing right now, in your present moment. You create your chosen future while in the present moment.
Your life is really that simple. Don’t waste your NOW with your conscious awareness lost in your fading past or your glorious imaginings of some unwritten future.
