“There is only one time that is important -- NOW! It is the
most important time because it is the only time that we have any power.”

~ Count Leo Tolstoy ~

Hi everyone,

Last week we shared a 3 step formula for living that you can use anytime: Experience, Expand, Express. This week we look more closely at Experience.

Our experience now is the experience of our life.

Really absorb the truth of this. Moment by moment, we experience something and the sum of all our present moment experiences = the story of our life.

This moment is the only time we have to work with -- ever. If I want to be happier, I need to choose to be happier NOW because tomorrow never comes.

Living fully in the present moment can be a huge challenge for us because our minds are addicted to the past and the future. If we want to change our experience of life, we must move beyond the collective and cultural conditioning, insecurities and old beliefs that restrict and filter our perceptions and that keep us trapped in either memories or speculation.

If we want to fully engage with life and create a life we love, we must learn to be fully present and conscious in the present moment. We must STOP and PAY ATTENTION to our own experience!

Whenever you remember to do so, STOP for just one minute and BE FULLY PRESENT. Stop what you’re doing. Simply experience your sensations. Listen. Feel. Perceive and observe. No resistance or judging. Just accept what is.

As a silent witness, we typically notice areas of tension. This is great, as change requires tension between old and new, positive and negative, personality and soul, and the conscious and unconscious.

In that moment of being conscious of the opposites, we hold the power to choose to think or feel or do something NOW to make our experience more expansive and empowering.

When we are truly present, we have access to our intuition and higher guidance. And when we make new choices, time and time again, our lives gently transform.
