Current and future behaviour is often based on our past experiences. If we don’t want a repeat of the past, and we want to change the future, it can be done right now, in the present.
When too much emotional and mental energy is invested in the future, we experience unease, anxiety, tension, worry and stress.
When too much emotional and mental energy is invested in the past, we experience regret, guilt, resentment, bitterness and a refusal to forgive or to be forgiven.
If we withdraw as much of our attention as possible from the past and the future, we can bring power and energy back into our bodies and into the present time.
Start by practicing the following:
- Be mindful.
- Be thoughtful.
- Be careful.
- Be grateful.
- Be wonderful.
Take one each day and implement it for the next 5 days, and repeat until you master each one. When more emotional and mental energy is in the present, and right here now, we open the door for real change to occur. Your body, soul and spirit will thank you for it.
