Don't wait for better times

Everything we think and do is a cause that leads to some consequences. If the choices that come to our minds are full of greed, jealousy, fear, deception, running away from troubles, they do not bring happiness; on the contrary – only inner pain and remorse.

Sometimes we don’t want to see it, sometimes we blame others, sometimes we feel like victims of fate, sometimes it’s just easier to exist than take responsibility for our own happiness.

If you don’t know where to start, simply learn how to be happy breathing, listening to music, eating, walking down the street, learning to smile when you wake up, and thanking for everything you have without complaining or feeling angry.

Try to feel happy right now, without waiting for better times, when you have much more, when everyone will love you more and when things will get better.

This moment is so much more important than the thousands of moments to come because it is now, even if you are simply lazy in bed. Now you are alive – appreciate it and make the most of it. And enjoy, be sure to enjoy it…

  1. I certainly agree with the sentiment of everything that you said there.

    Sure, we should try to be in the present moment, enough to enjoy it fully, happily, and to get the most out of it too.

    On the other hand, over-appreciating the moment, and only totally living in it, has a sort of a selfish flavour to it, to me anyway, as we should try to make sure too that the moment connects us to the greater picture of God’s infinite moment, existing outside of our really still “timed” (but seemingly untimed) moment, otherwise, it remains a selfish pursuit of nothing, nothing but an illusory glance at the reflection on the pond of God, rather than our actually bathing in it.

    The moment is not really a moment to God, but a reflective glance into a whirlpool spinning.

    The moment stops the whirlpooling effect, but never really connects to it, unless you credit that that moment is also a part of something far greater than just itself too.
