Be Here NOW
Card of the Day
The younger we are, the harder it is, to believe that we too will grow old. Yet it is a good and healthy subject to discuss with your kids, because it happens to all of us who have the good fortune. That is why Now is so important.
It serves us well to look to the future and how to maintain this space suit we live in; while zipping around, breathing oxygen, eating foods, working, studying and playing now and then. Each day is our opportunity to practice how to take care of ourselves, Mother Earth and all the critters and people scurrying about. The effect of our practice to be in the Now, is a gentle earth, happy space travelers and a strong body and mind for our future, because the future is NOW.
It is a lot of fun to discuss with a child the idea of NOW and how it is the only time we have together because the future is a dream, but oh my, the future that just turned now is already the past and the past is not now it doesn’t even exist anymore, Oh Wow! see how Now is good to think about?
What we do now is the most important thing we do because we cannot do anything in the future but think about it and make plans (that can be fun too), the past we can only make up in our minds, it is the only place that a past exist. So why not make it work to our advantage, the past that is.
So use the mind to remember the fun, be excited about the future and enjoy what you are doing right now. Get ready, set, go, close your eyes, go to sleep and dream sweetly of thoughts of a beautiful tomorrow. let today sink into the past of forgotten memories and this will give your space suit time to repair itself.
