Enjoy Now!

I’ve been going through some life experiences lately that have confirmed and reaffirmed my conviction that Living in Truth not only makes life less painful, it makes life wonderful. The simple principles of living anchored to the present and not dragging the past into the present and of not sinking yourself in worry about the future are priceless. The value of the Truth Tools to help me avoid the Pit of Illusion, and especially the peace and joy that comes into the heart to reassure and empower us even in the darkest moments of our lives are beyond any words I have to describe them.

In conjunction with this, D3 called me the other day to tell me about a sign she had read. She couldn’t remember the exact words and I can’t remember her exact words but the gist of the sign (in my own words) was:

“If you want to be miserable, fret about the past.
If you want to be vexed, worry about the future.
If you want peace, live now.”

That works with little problems and big ones. So look around you. See, feel, touch, taste and listen to the present moment. Enjoy what is now!

Thanks so much for the truth tools. I am trying to incorporate them in my life! One of my favorite hymns is "Oh Say, What Is Truth?" I love the very last line in the very last verse, "Truth, the sum of existence, will weather the worst, eternal, unchanged evermore."

Learning to focus on the present has been a very important thing for me to learn. Thanks for helping me with that. :)
