Present Presents

GS: If you know what is going to happen, would you pay attention to what is around you NOW? There is a reason why you do not know the future. You do not really know the past either, just what you choose to select as memories. But "now" you can know and now is what you seem to want to do anything with but know. Mental  gymnastics, all designed to keep you from your current moment, leap and bound in front of you, vying for your attention. Imaginary disasters, cherished moments from your past that you cling to, all distract you from now. Stay present where your power is.  Stay present and open the gifts that are right in front of you. There is no will be, there is no was. All is right in front of you within your reach. The one service your wayward mind can perform for you in this present moment is to imagine possibilities. Picture the life you want, picture the opportunities you wish to explore and thereby bring them into manifestation. Direct your imaginings instead of allowing them to drive your life with awfulizing. Choose joy.

  1. This is a wonderful antidote to "awfulizing."

    Thanks too for the reminder that the past doesn't exist except as we choose to remember it---a very helpful kick in the pants.
