The secret of health is not to mourn the past or worry about the future, but to live in the present moment wisely. – Buddha
Life happens when we decide to be present in the here and now. Without mindfulness, we live mostly semiconscious, with the occasional burst of awareness when something exciting or tragic happens. To live fully present for each moment of your life is to not only discover happiness itself but a deep sense of meaning in your life.
Happiness isn’t at the end of the road, it’s the very road itself. How you tread the road of life is what will determine if you’re peaceful and happy, not what you achieve by getting to the end of the road. Try it for yourself, begin practicing mindfulness in your everyday life (if you haven’t already) and see what I mean.
Peace and Love, Jim
