‘This moment contains all the moments’. C.S Lewis
Every single moment in your life is the only moment. It shapes the moments of the future and happens because of the moments gone past…
What you decide right now is the only thing that is important.
If you have read The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle tells you that the Now is the only important time, not to live in the past or the future but right now…
There is part of that I get and I agree with, but, my understanding of what he was saying was to just delete the past and not even consider the future or make goals or plans…
That bit I don’t fully agree with.
What I believe is we have to accept that the past is gone and it can’t be changed and we should have goals and plans for the future to give us something to work towards, give us some drive and motivation.
I also believe though that we can’t control what is going to happen in the future so although we work toward something what we get might not be what we planned, I do believe though that what we end up with is way better than we planned – that is often down to us not believing our full potential.
Did you do yesterday’s task? Did you do your negative list and destroy it and create your achievements?
How does it make you feel looking at your achievements? I would like to think pretty proud – this is one of my reasons I don’t think we should completely forget the past… We have achieved so much, and grown and learned and shaped our character through mistakes and achievements.
We want to bring all those moments in to our present moment, use them to shape this moment to create more amazing moments in the future.
Have an amazing Wednesday
