Find Inner Peace By Being Present In Every Moment

In this present moment you can live abundantly. You must release your thoughts of the past and future and focus your thoughts on this moment, now.

We must learn to accept this universal truth, now is all there ever is. Nothing else exist, besides from this present moment. When you spend your time thinking about the past or the future, you are in a fantasy land. Our mind is very powerful and can make your thoughts of the past seem very real. Through the power of our mind, we can make the past feel very real, however it is not real.

When you can allow yourself to be present in any given moment, you have the potential to experience deep inner peace. You have the power to experience an abundance of joy, love and total inner peace and fulfillment.

If you are constantly thinking about the past, you will continue to experience the same scenarios over and over again. Whatever you think about, you bring about. You will naturally create, in your life, whatever your consistent dominant thoughts are. You continue to recreate situations similar to what you created in the past when you keep your thoughts focused on the past.

You are missing what is happening right now in the present moment, every second that you spend in your head thinking about possible futures or the past. Most people miss the majority of their life, because they were not present in many of the moments in their life. They were either wishing things were the way they used to be or having thoughts of regret about their past. Or they were fantasizing about a potential future, wishing that their current situation was something different. The future is not real and will not be real, until it becomes the present moment.

I have heard people say that all we have is our memories. I believe that to be a false statement. This present moment, right now, is all we have. Now is all that matters. Every time we get too caught up in our memories, good or bad, we are missing this present moment. Every moment lost can never be recaptured.

To truly live abundantly in the present moment it is necessary to start being grateful and appreciating every moment. In every single moment of your life focus on feeling gratitude. Be present, put all of your focus on the sights, smells and feelings that are right in front of you and within you at every moment.

You will notice your whole world change, when you continue to practice being present on a consistent basis. When you are present the whole world around you becomes more alive. Colors become brighter, food tastes better, intimacy feels more intense, feelings become stronger, everything is more alive, because you are more alive. The only way to feel truly alive is to be completely present. This is what happens to great athletes, artists, musicians and performers. By being completely and totally focused on their task in the present moment, all of their senses are experienced at a heightened state.

Experience every moment of your life with a feeling of gratitude. Say in your head or out loud, "Thank you for this moment", many times throughout your day. "Now is all there is, I am this moment", is a wonderful quote from the movie 'The Peaceful Warrior'. You are this moment, now, enjoy it and live fully and graciously. Remember, now is called the present, because it is a gift. Be grateful for your present.
