Every Moment Is Different

“Every moment is different.” That is why you should never ignore your present moment. Wherever you are, be there. Whatever you are doing, do it well. It is important to love your life. Life is too short to waste. Love your life. You deserve love. Be grateful for what you have. Don’t focus your attention on what is bad. Instead of doing that, why not focus your attention on what you are doing right. When you focus on your life, you can change yourself. You can work on yourself. You can get rid of what is making you unhappy.

If you want to enjoy your precious life, you’ve got to love your life. You must pay attention to what you are doing. I am not saying you should do meditation. But if you can do it to relax yourself, why not? But if you can’t, don’t worry yourself about it. You will be fine. You don’t need a meditation studio to calm your life, to be present.

If you want to enjoy people, pay attention to them. When you are with people, when you are with a friend, when you are with your partner, when you are with a teacher, when you are doing your meditation, when you are reading a great book, when you are watching a TV, you must be there. You must be present. The best thing you can do for yourself is to pay attention to your soul. Don’t ignore your feelings. Don’t ignore the talk you are having with yourself. Try to learn something from it. Everything is important. Nothing is useless. Everything is different. Every moment is different. According to Natalie Goldberg, “Every moment is different. Different things works. One isn’t wrong and the other right.” She is right. Every day is not going to be fun. You are not going to be happy every day. You are not going to meet good people every day. It is not going to happen like that. Things are different. People are different. But we are all looking for the same thing: Love.

Since everything is different, since people are different, since every moment is different, don’t play with yourself. You must celebrate yourself. Don’t wait for people to make your life for you. They are not going to make it for you. All you have to do to change your life is to pay attention to your life. Because every moment is different.

Why Are People So Scared Of New Ideas?

John Cage said, “I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I am frightened of old ones.”

Are you chasing new ideas? Or are you keeping your old ideas? What do you when someone gives you a new idea? Do you ignore it? Or do you explore it?

You have what it takes to explore new ideas. If you don’t explore new ideas, how can you make new things? If you don’t explore new ideas, how can you create a new path for yourself? If you don’t explore new ideas, how can you create new things? It is possible. Old ideas are good, but new ideas are better. Old ideas got you to where you are now, but they can’t move you forward. So, if you want to do new things, if you want to meet new people, if you want to renew your ideas, you must let go of your old ones.

To let something good into your life, you must let go of something bad. I am not saying that old ideas are bad. They are good. But they can’t help you get to where you want to go. Only new ideas can get you there. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, Every act puts the agent in a new position.” In your case, every idea puts you in a new position.

If new ideas are so good, why are people so scared of new ideas?

People don’t like new ideas because they don’t know what to do with it. They are scared of where the new ideas will take them to. They don’t want to explore a new place. They don’t want to leave where they are. They are okay with what they are doing. They don’t want people to talk bad about them They want to look smart. They don’t want to look stupid. Believe me, if you are not ready to look stupid, if you are not ready to make your own mistake, you are not ready to grow. You can’t grow if you are not ready and willing to accept new ideas.

New ideas generate new things. Old ideas generate old things. If you want new things to happen in your life, you must pursue new ideas. Don’t let fear take your ideas away from you. If you do, you will regret it. Are ready to embrace new ideas?
