DO: trust the present
I trust the present. I trust the future. Life that is lived in any other manner is an illusion created from fear.
I know that I posted this excerpt in a blogger diary a while back, but it won’t stop popping into my head. Every time I find myself wondering about the present or the future, the lines repeat in my brain like a whispering mantra. There is a very valuable point to be recognized here.
The idea – trusting the present –is so elementarily truthful that it’s tough to understand why you ever thought another way. There needs to be faith that everything is happening for a reason. There is a path that your life will take, and detours it will meander off to, but that is what is supposed to happen. Your personality and soul will move you through life exactly how is right for you. In the end, the experiences will come together to define and form your self-identity.
So trust that what is happening in the present will teach you the lessons and take you where you need to go for the future. Live in the moment, let go of the fear, and believe in what is happening.
