Living in this Moment

Right now, at this moment, how are you feeling?

Mindfulness of the moment

When you practice mindfulness one of the elements of this is being in the here-and-now. When you are aware of your thoughts, feelings, and actions that is mindfulness. That awareness is not subconscious, but conscious, and is in the now.

“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”

The reality that people claim to be aware of is not their personal picture, just the persistent illusion of reality that forms the collective consciousness of the word. Your individual reality, this moment in which you read these words, is wholly yours and where you truly are aware.

What are you thinking? What and how are you feeling?

If at this moment, as you are reading these words, you are in a bad environment and/or not a mental place you would prefer to be — you can change it. I recognize that if you’re on the job taking a break from your work or goofing off to avoid work, that may be unchangeable. But you can change your focus.

Finding yourself in the moment isn’t hard, but it does require action

Knowing that you have the power to be aware of your thoughts, feelings, and actions, you can choose to recognize that you are in this moment. When you become aware of this, and you can see how you can alter, change, and even control your reality at this moment, that ultimately empowers you. When you feel empowered, your mindfulness increases, you become more aware overall, and that tends to spread to other people around you.
