There is nothing more important than right now. When you make goals or plan for the future the only time you will act on them is now, not in the future. This may not make sense to some people but consider this: when did the last moment end and this one begin? Time is a construction of our minds. Ask any animal what time it is: “The time is now, that’s what time it has always been”. People who are identified with their brains are addicted to thinking. This takes their awareness away from the present moment and they begin to regret past actions or worry about future appointments. We often feel guilty for not acting on certain promises to ourselves. This guilt is dangerous, there is nothing you can do to change the past but your mind loves to get attention by causing you to over-think and over judge past situations. Also the present moment is often uncomfortable or unpleasant, but what is the point of creating resistance to something that “is”. Your happiness depends not on the situation but on your thoughts about it. Life will always give you the moment you need to grow, right now. If you are frustrated or angry at this moment, detach from this thought and become aware of it, it is not who you are but you can learn from it and create the circumstances to evolve your self.
