The best way to draw life towards yourself is to live in the present. Much easier said than done, this simple idea has completely dominated my thought life this week. There are a lot of things in life that we can not control: what happens around us, what others around us do, and what happens in the future. The one thing we can control (and this is certainty) is what happens in us. In mastering this technique, I believe that we can begin to experience the true abundance of life, and in turn will be able to say, “life, je t’aime (life, I love you).”
Only you have the power to allow your heart, mind and body live in the present. Try it out for yourself. I did over the past few days and it is revolutionary. If you want to be able to boldly proclaim, “LIFE, JE T’AIME”,then you must chose to live only in the present. Stop dwelling on or identifying yourself by your past, and stop over-planning your future, even if you are only planning for tomorrow. When we focus on our tomorrows we inevitably lose our todays.
