The most important thing one can do is to remain in the present moment. Even when the mind wanders off, recounting past events in detail, over and over, holding on to fear, or future tripping about things that have not even happened, it is ridiculous, even insane. Yet this is how the mind works, often against our control, to lead us away from what is here, now, leading us away from the joy and bliss of the present. Breathe deep. Bring the mind back to Now, gently, softly, and without judgement, as if training a precious puppy. There are no limits in the infinite Now. There is no time, there is only a multitude of possibilities. The mind will need to be lead back to the Now millions and millions of times, yet each time it will be just a little bit easier. Throughout the day, reconnect to the Now, even if it is for 10 seconds or 1 minute. Breathe deeply, several times, and bring awareness back to this moment. Guide the breath through the entire body, allowing the exhalation to release any tension or fear that the mind or body is holding onto. This can be done at any time. Now is the perfect time. Know that everything is perfect, as it is in this moment. Choose to see the joy, peace, and bliss that is the infinite Now, limitless and free.
