We tend to postpone our lives to better times, when we meet the deadline for X, when we lose weight, when we find the right partner, when the children grow up, when summer comes, when we make more money – you name it.
We create so much conditioning and so many milestones that we miss the most important – to live. We run to build a better life and end up running from life.
What makes as avoid the present moment? Sometimes is to hide the void inside, some other times to cope with some experiences, to forget about unfulfillment, to tame unwanted emotions and so on – all to get rid of something we don’t like, something we label as “bad”. But is any of this as bad as missing life?
What if we just stop? Right now. Focus on this present moment with everything that brings.
How does it feel?
Live now. Live fully.
