“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.” ~ Earl Nightingale; American radio personality, motivational and personal development writer, speaker, and author.
Are we our knowledge…?? Are we happier by what we have read or thought…?? Are we just intellect…?? Are we just working and filling our minds and expectations with the future…??
These questions should be answered right away in your mind, because if you do sit and think about everything that happens, then it means you are not reaching your full potential and you are wasting away. Life is here, not two days from now, two months from now, or twenty years from now; but here in this moment, for you to experience with all your being, with all its up and downs it is all a lesson to be learned by the wise man or woman.
Quite often we make the mistake of working really hard and putting all our faith and expectations, praying and getting anxious about the future–i.e., a future promotion or major sale at work, a future test coming up in school, a thought of reaching the next birthday and getting older, how to pay the coming rent, etc. etc. And this is not really living, is it…?? Always worried about something, and letting our environment affect our moods and whole personas with ourselves and with others.
I mean to say that these thoughts are important, of course they are; they are preparing us for what is coming that is relevant to our lives, and as human beings this is necessary. But we must understand that these thoughts can, and often do, become a subconscious malady or sickness, an obsession that soon turns into our persona, because these thoughts pop up and we allow them to flow and take over our lives, like poison spreads in the blood.
Living and enjoying everyday is elevating our minds and hearts, not by amassing intellect and thinking every little second about a future, but by being ourselves in the moment and experiencing life at its fullest.
So, we create the future our hearts desire, not by stressing over it (an illusion living only in our minds), but by behaving and acting appropriately towards a goal with faith and patience, energy and a positive attitude.
