Pay attention to the present, whatever arises, use it as a key to practice acceptance…

Let go of the past and let the future be. Live in the present. Focus only on how you respond to the present moment as opposed to what it is arising, in other words, start to care more about the way you react in the present moment than to what it is that you are reacting too. Remember it is the quality of your consciousness in this moment that is creating and paving the path in front of you…

So whatever arises in the present, use it as a key to practice acceptance, to practice not resisting the present moment, to practice letting everyone be as they are and everything be as it is…

This is a very powerful practice. You see it is your resistance to the present moment that is causing you so much frustration in your thoughts and mind…

If you can accept this moment as it is, despite the circumstances, then what problems are there? If you can accept that you are here and this is where you are currently at, then what is there left for you to complain about and to use as your excuse to not feel good?

It is in that releasing of resistance, in that withdrawing from trying to make yourself something different than you are and life something different than it already is, that a very deep peace will start to arise from the very core of your being. In that peace a joy of simply being here will start to emerge, and in that joy, an unconditional love will start to blossom from the very core of your being. You have fallen in love with yourself, and you can see yourself in everyone and everything around you…

Remember; you are the instrument of life through which life is exploring and experiencing itself. You are of immense value here and now. Your thoughts, your words and your actions in the present moment are literally changing worlds. So start to take care of the way you are thinking and feeling and responding to the present moment, start to act from a place of love as opposed to a place of separation.

Most importantly- lighten up- enjoy each moment as much and as fully as you can…
