How to Live in the Present

Living in the Present

The place that I really feel in the present is when I am meditating. The immediacy of the current breath is my now. The history of the pervious breath and the expectation of the next beach are lost in the intimacy of the present one. But that sense of being in the moment comes with me, from the meditation cushion, into my life.

The immediacy of the current breath is my now.

The mindfulness of each moment whether walking, eating, working, talking, is magical. My mind, like your mind wanders and my task is to keep it on track. The life long process of learning leads to the goal of being the best version of me I can possibly become and I hope that this can also become your goal.

When I work with clients I know that those who find mindful approaches to their problems will overcome them. The anxiety of what will happen disappears when we live in the moment. The depressed attachment to the past disappears when we live in the moment.

How to Live in the Present

Those people who learn to live in the present are free of both the past and future. They are effective thinkers, empathic feelers, and the positive doers, that make life a joy to be a part of. Most importantly they find their own fulfilment and happiness.

This is my work and my life and the subject of my book ‘Live in the Present’. Together with Ed and Rie we run live in the present, creating products and resources that enable people to overcome obstacles, define their purpose and create their own happiness and fulfilment.

We are not alone there are lots of people engaged in what I have come to call ‘The Work’. Human consciousness is undergoing a renaissance as we begin to realise that life is not fixed, we have the ability to change and can become whatever we wish to be, once we understand the process. The starting point of all change is to be in the present and to let go of all negative association to the past and the fear of the future and enjoy this wonderful journey from birth to death that we are all on.

There is only one task in life and that is to find our own fulfilment. Fulfilled people are inspirational to others. Fulfilment and happiness are infectious. Fulfilment is never selfish it is the highest expression of humanity. The fulfilled parent teaches their children to find their own fulfilment. The fulfilled leader inspires a happy society, company or organisation. Fulfilment comes from mindfully living in the present.

The compassionate desire of the fulfilled mind is that all beings should be happy.

Live in the present, find yourself and, create ‘the you’ that you really desire.

Be happy, with love
