“There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live.” Dalai Lama
Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
There is a specific habit you can form to get you on the fast track to where you want to be...to help you start creating more of what you want, in the moment you are experiencing it. Being “here” now is the key.
The first step is to start from where you are right now, in this present moment. "Now" is the only time that actually exists...so you must start from here! This step requires that you focus solely on what you have going on in front of you, in the moment you are in. If you are happy and having fun in that moment, stay with that good feeling, expanding it even further to give you more joy. However, if you wish a situation were different, you must look at everything with fresh eyes.
In order to live our lives to the fullest, the most important thing is to feel good right now. While taking inspired action is important, the way to achieving whatever it is that we want, the easiest way, is to feel good first. Actually, that’s where inspired action comes from….a place of feeling good and calm. It allows our imagination to expand and inspiration to form. When you feel good first, you'll take the most effective action possible and remain in the flow.
AND…the feeling that we are talking about is how we feel right now. So the question is this. What is it that you feel right now? That feeling that we have in the present moment determines what it is that we are going to create right now. Our lives are made of these moments as we are living them.
For example, thinking about how much you love someone (who may not be there at that moment) is a good, loving thought. But, the thoughts that allow you to create what you want are thoughts of love and gratitude about what’s happening in the moment in front of you. Actually, we create simultaneously with our feeling. So, If we want to make that sale, we need to feel good right now. if we want to have a wonderful conversation with someone close to us, we need to feel good right now. If we want to heal ourselves, we need to feel good right now. Now... at this very moment.
How can you make this your reality?
The most empowering news of all is that no matter how we feel, we can change it by concentrating on feeling love and gratitude... and by having fun! So, throughout the day, check on how you feel. Put great focus on feeling good with each experience in the moment, as you are living it. Once you get in the habit of doing this, you will find that things become so much easier.
When we feel lots of love for ourselves, everyone, and everything, we become truly calm. Our perspective of everything in our life changes. We are able to see the blessings and the potential that the moment holds for us. We look to create something new and different, something that is sure to give us joy. We are able to stay focused on the outcome we want so much more easily.
So, in your mind, practice seeing yourself with a blank sheet of paper in front of you as you begin the creative process. Know that you are creating your world, and you get to decide what the next experience of your life will be. It is all based on how you see it and how you feel. So, go ahead and script it... from a place of love and calm! Picture the perfect outcome, the one that you want. Feel lots of love for it, for you, and for everyone involved.
Be persistent in this effort by being keenly aware of how you feel in the present moment. Focus on your life and what you can create, right now, that feels good and brings you peace. The more you concentrate on now, by making choices that feel good in the present moment, the more easily you are able to take care of “your future.” The results will be amazing!
Have an absolutely magical day full of love, gratitude, and fun, fun, fun!
