“Focus your attention on the Now and tell
me what problem you have at this moment.”
~ Eckhart Tolle
There are times when we feel overwhelmed by all that is going on within us and around us. Relationships, finances, health issues and our own minds can clog with problems and we feel like we have problems with everything. Maybe we do, but in this very moment, the quote above from Tolle reminds us to breathe and to concentrate on ‘what problem you have at this moment.’ In this very instant, be grateful for all that we have.
So let’s be grateful for what we share. Be grateful for the world such as it is ~ the beauty of Mother Nature, the sweet melody of the animals, the fact that in this very moment, we are here to enjoy our lives. Be present. Be open. Be grateful for all the little, sometimes subtle blessings in your life.
Perhaps your relationships are stormy, be present, carve out a moment for yourself to enjoy the peace within you. Perhaps your health is an issue, be grateful for your breath, focus on breathing, feel your body and cells ignite with positivity. Your body is a well-organized machine that your mind runs. Clear your mind, think good thoughts and your body responds. Perhaps your finances are giving you trouble. Then bless your bills, be grateful for shelter, and the comforts of home that you have now in this moment. You have infinite power to change.
Now, in this moment, you are here, you are blessed. You are perfect, whole and complete. In this very instance you have all you need in order to succeed. You have yourself. You can overcome any obstacles in your path. You have no problems that you cannot surmount. Once you make up your mind that you have no problems in this very moment, it becomes clear that we can eliminate the sadness, the hurt, the anger and the problems and move on to peace.
Use this moment to find the peace within you. Surround yourself with a loving embrace.
Smile. All is well, moment to moment.
