Why Here And Why Now?

No longer forward nor behind
I look in hope or fear;
But, grateful, take the good I find,
The best of now and here.

John Greenleaf Whittier

Thinking is a faculty we bring to bear in our lives. We initiate it, we guide it and we execute it. Because we do so much thinking it has become automatic. We’ve lost control of our own thinking, it now controls us. So the question is do we assert control over our own mind or do we behave as though it’s not up to us?? Will we seize the good and the positive around us or will we succumb to fear and negativity?

now and here

Right here and at this very moment life is focalized in and around us. Blood courses through our veins and arteries, air eases in and out of our lungs, our brain is active in more ways than one and we are alive!! The whole planet teams with life as it also sings to the tunes of the infinite. If we enjoy this beautiful melody that is life itself, playing all around and inside us, we’ll know that we’re an integral part of this great enterprise. We’ll also realize that here and now is where we must be, this is where life itself intersects with Time and Space…
