Practise Living In The Now And Tune Into Your Abundance
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The powerful concept of living in the now is often ignored in western culture. We are so engaged in thinking of the past and planning for the future that we are not aware of the present.

Our entire financial system is builton planning for the future via pension funds, life insurance policies, car insurance incase of an accident, private health insurance, the list is truly endless.

Has it ever occurred to you that you are spending probably over 50% of your time planning for events that have not even happened yet? This paradox which permeates every angle of our society is also in great money spinner, but that's another subject entirely.

Fear can only exist in the future, never in the present.

Planning for future events creates anxiety and stress: Planning for future events demands of you to imagine outcomes, most of them undesirable, so that you can think up strategies to protect you for all eventualities. Since you always get what you focus on the very act of spending a large amount of your time in the future takes away your power to create your life right now.

The Buddhists have a lovely saying: "When it is time to eat, eat, when it time to sleep, sleep".

Engaging your mind in fanciful ideas of what to do and when literally destroys the moment of now. Your awareness shift to the more ephemeral pursuits of your mind. However, you can only create in the "now".

Life is a succession of nows.Whatever else you may experience is not real. It is an illusion that appears real to us. I know, that this is hard to understand for many, but once you understand the full meaning, you will experience immense joy, happiness and abundance will follow naturally. Your life will be so much richer once you discover the power of now is for real.I really don't know how to describe it to you, but, here goes:

You will get more done, because you start acting without the fear and anxiety that the constant projections to the future create. That alone will increase your happiness levels way beyond what you ever thought possible.

Focus on the activities of the moment and witness yourself.

A good way to start is to focus on whatever you are doing right now, like reading this article. Notice whether you are fully concentrating or if your mind has already wandered off the next thing you think you should be doing.

When you set the intention to do the best in every moment you will feel more relaxed. Both body and mind are singularly engaged in whatever you are doing right now and that creates peace and calm and makes for great efficiency too. In Buddhism this state is referred to as mindfulness.

You can only feel anxious and nervous when many thoughts are competing in your head for prime position. Your efficacy will drop accordingly.

Once you are comfortable with staying in the "now" and you function in your daily routine in the now you will feel happier, more relaxed and you will inevitably lead a more abundant life.
