The Art of Now or How to Live In the Moment

Your mind is bombarded by so many thoughts each second that you are your biggest distraction. According to the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging at the University of Southern California, the average person has about 48.6 thoughts per minute.  That translates to a total of 70,000 thoughts per day. being in the moment

How can you focus on the MOMENT when your minds’ highway is as clogged up as downtown traffic on a Monday morning?

 

You need to reconnect.

 

 

Reconnect with your inner being.

When you are able to shut down the incessant mental cacophony within your mind, then that very moment you will find that inner stillness within you. One of the ways to attain this is through a simple meditation exercise whereby you focus on your breathing and allow all thoughts to pass you by without entertaining them. It will be tough initially. With practice you may be able to do it for one minute. Then extend it to five. Eventually you can be in total silence and shut out all noises and distractions.

This will lead to clarity. When you have clarity, you are able to think straight and do the right things. And then clarity leads to power. I’ve heard many used this as a buzzword without a proper notion of what it really means. In that sense, it has become a punch line.

 

Being in the moment is being present. And being present is living the moment. Don’t live for yesterday because it’s in the past. Not tomorrow. Nor next year.

 

But Now. This very moment.

 Being in the moment

Once you have clarity, now you will know what you need to seek. Whatever you want from life – Seek it. The very things that you seek are seeking you too.
