All you have is this moment. No matter where you have been, what you done for yourself, where you are, where you are going, one thing is clear: Everything is happening in your life right now. All you have is now. All you will ever have is now. Why are you not enjoying it?

The value of life lies not in the length of days, but in the use we make of them…”- Michel de Montaigne

Because we live in the past, not in the present. We don’t live in the moment. We live in the future. We think where we are going is better than where we are. But the opposite is true. If you we have the courage to focus on where we are, we will do better in the future. Most people waste their lives by living in the past. No matter what may have happened to you in the past, don’t relive it. It is in the past. You are no longer living in the past. You are living in the present. Since living in the present is the only way forward, why not love it, why not live it, why not embrace it?

Whether you find satisfaction in life depends not on your tale of years, but on your will…”– Michel de Montaigne

If you want to go forward in your life, you must live in the moment. This moment is important. Don’t waste it. Live it. Enjoy it. Be thankful for having it. Philosopher Eckhart Tolle writes, “This one moment, now, is the only thing you can never escape from. The one constant factor in your life. No matter what happens. No matter how much your life changes. One thing is certain. It’s always now. Since there is no escape from the now, why not welcome it, become friendly with it.” The moment is always there. We live it everyday. So if we want to make it better, if we want to enjoy the moment, we must pay attention to it.

Stillness

“Stillness is the first requirement for manifesting your desires, because in stillness lies your connection to the field of pure potentiality that can orchestrate an infinity of details for you. … Stillness alone is the potentiality for creativity; movement alone is creativity restricted to a certain aspect of its expression. But the combination of movement and stillness enables you to unleash your creativity in all directions- wherever the power of your attention takes you.”- The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: A Practical Guide To The Fulfillment of Your Dreams

When you make any choice

“When you make any choice- any choice at all- you can ask yourself two things: First of all, ‘What are the consequences of this choice that I’m making?’ In your heart you will immediately know what these are. Secondly, ‘Will this choice that I’m making now bring happiness to me and to those around me?’ If the answer is yes, then go ahead with that choice. If the answer is no, if that choice brings distress either to you or to those around you, then don’t make that choice.”- The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: A Practical Guide To The Fulfillment of Your Dreams
