It is very easy in this fast paced world to get caught up looking at our past or constantly looking at the future. All too often we focus on what we are doing with only the end in mind and what completion will mean and even on to the next goal or project. As a society we have almost lost the concept of living in the now and enjoying the moment. One example of this is the business executive who focuses on the long work in order to have a vacation where he spends time on the phone and in front of the computer working on the next challenge and directive and where that will lead him. It may also be as simply as sitting down to dinner focusing on what needs to be done after eating without ever taking time to really enjoy the food one is eating.

Nothing exists outside this present moment. That is a very different way of thinking than I was used to. I have learned and finally embraced focusing on and living in the now. Living happens in the present moment. Fulfillment happens in the present moment.

Most people spend their time complaining about the past or worrying about the future. Do you know anyone like this? We live in a fast-paced world, and the concept of slowing down and appreciating each moment may seem like a waste of time. However, it is in the present moment where you will find fulfillment and joy. It is simply about “being present” to everything and anything in the here and the now. It is about being present to the experience and accepting it and living now, right now.

How often do you really choose the time to enjoy the meal? Do you smell the aroma of the food, savor the flavors in your mouth as you slowly chew it before swallowing? We are often too concerned about the future or what happened in the past to really be here and now in the moment. There is a lot to lose when we fail to do that. Enjoy the journey, the whole journey, because that is where real satisfaction and peace comes from. The past is over and there is nothing we are able to do about it and we certainly have zero ability to control the future. Choose time to enjoy the moment, starting right now!

Having acceptance simply means embracing what is. Acknowledging the “what” may include yourself, your spouse, significant other, job, house, life, health, and prosperity, or a set of circumstances. With acceptance, embrace peace. It is in this peace where your magnificence will happen.

When you accept something, you let go of the resistance, the fight, or the struggle. What is left is peace. It is this resistance to “what is” that keeps you in a locked set of behaviors. When you resist circumstances in your life, your energy is tied up in the struggle. As soon as you just accept the circumstances, the energy is free to move about. You are able to dance with “what is” in a different way, often creating the very movement you are looking for.
