Continuing on to the fourth step in the process of avoiding the drama in my life…
Step 4 – My Now
And this is where I want to live for the duration. Staying in the present is so much more interesting than you might ever imagine. This is where your greater capacity lives and this is where your joy resides
My present is the only possible reality and it is the one that we are just really learning about. We have a lot of epigenetic learning from our family, community and schools, etc. that have trained us to look backwards for information and look forward for success.
Our success is here now – we can only exist in this moment and the rest is all made up from only slightly accurate information – flawed views of life that are often based on fear and longing rather than what we can actually know for sure.
In the present you are always fresh, new and available to every idea, opportunity and resource that your world is offering to you.
Choose your way to stay in the present by having a good friend to check in with, or meditating/yoga, doing your Affirmations, taking long walks in nature, reading great books – whatever skill or technique works for you to keep you aligned with your present.
I would not choose to live anywhere else.
Next week, I will share some additional thoughts on avoiding the drama in our lives.
