Now is right now…

   There   are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is  a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.  Albert Einstein

Living in the now is how we acknowledge that everything is a miracle. Every day we are given the opportunity to be, see, or experience the veil being lifted off the illusion of our personal myths, beliefs, and untruths, that keep us stuck in self-imposed limitations and incarcerations. Our false assumptions, beliefs, and opinions lead us to view our world through the lens of the past instead of the present.

The space between the past and the future, is this place we call now. The subconscious lives on a parallel plane with no concept of time: past, present, or future it just does its best to maintain the status quo.

What you focus on, what you obsess about, what you keep in the forefront of your mind is what the Universe is continually sending you and what the subconscious is seeking because where the mind goes energy flows. Today, give your subconscious the directive that you will follow the 80/20 rule and allow your subconscious to live more in the now and not in the past or future.

 The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.  Albert  Einstein

This illusion that Mr. Einstein is discussing can prevent you from pulling off any past or present limitations, self-made or put on you by others, knowingly or unknowingly.

If you live too deep into the past; regret, guilt, or resentment directs your path. If you live too far into the future; fear, anger, and anxiety directs your path.

A preoccupation with the future not only prevents us from seeing the present as it is but often prompts us to rearrange the past.  Eric Hoffer

I agree with Mr.Hoffer, however if you live in the now your attitude of gratitude can shine a light on your current love, success, and in-joyment. Today is filled with hope, help, and healing and you don’t have to find ways to rearrange the past in your mind’s eye.

Inhale: and acknowledge that living in the now knowing that this moment is all that you have – with the wisdom to use it wisely or experience it fully.

 Exhale: knowing that the next moment is not a given. For every inhale there is an exhale, for every action there is a reaction.

For every challenge or struggle there is opportunity to live the miracle of …

This magic moment belongs to you if you let go of the illusion of only children play. Living in the Now starts with directing and allowing your subconscious to live now and not in the past.

Memories can be wonderful learning tools or they can freeze our emotions in an instant.

Allow synchronicity to play and work in your life –be open to those little magical moments and whispers letting you know that now is the right time and it is okay to be you.

Act as if what you do with your daily life makes a difference (it does) and as if it is a paradoxical miracle (it is)!   If not Now when?    CJ
