Life only exists in the present. In the present moment, there is peace.
I stay focused on the present because I know I can only live in the present.
The future is uncertain. When people think about the future, they worry. The past can also be a source of pain. When looking back at the past, it is common to feel regret. This is unnecessary. The past is gone and done. I can learn from it and release it.
When I find myself trying to live in the past or the present, I focus on my surroundings. I see with my eyes and listen with my ears. I feel with my body. I focus on whatever I happen to be doing. By bringing my attention to my environment and my activity, I can always live in the present moment.
Mindfulness is a big part of my life. I am always aware of my actions. I avoid daydreaming or thinking about the past or the future. The present moment provides everything I need for successful living.
I take the time to meditate each day. This greatly improves my focus. I find it easier to accomplish things when I maintain a clear focus.
Today, I live in the present. I am free of the past and future. I am free to live today.
