A Simple Thought

I came across this nice inspirational article and thought, it will make your day even more beautiful! So here I am sharing it with you. Hope you will enjoy it! --------

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the Now the primary focus of your life. Whereas before you dwelt in time and paid brief visits to the Now, have your dwelling place in the Now and pay brief visits to past and future when required to deal with the practical aspects of your life situation. Always say “yes” to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to something that already is? What could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say “yes to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.” “If you cannot be at ease with yourself when you are alone, you will seek a relationship to cover up your unease. You can be sure that the unease will then reappear in some other form within the relationship, and you will probably hold your partner responsible for it. All you really need to do is accept the moment fully. You are then at ease in the here and now and at ease with yourself.” --- Eckhart Tolle

If we want to achieve success (in whatever way We define success), and have the life we want, then living in the present – the now – is incredibly important to us, and here's why ….the past is over … and …the future does not exist yet.Many people waste an enormous amount of energy on regrets. They dwellon things that were said or done in their personal histories. Why?

Thepast cannot be changed. What was said cannot be unsaid. What was done cannot be undone.
Fretting over the past and reliving past 'mistakes' means we arenot investing in the now.What happened in the past is over, and if we want our life to be anempowered one, then the past needs to be a fading memory.
