What is comes down to is living as fully as you possibly can in your Now.
Give your full attention to your now, and if you will give your full attention to your now, whatever it is, then what you discover is because your Inner Being exists in a place of such positive Energy, and in your Now you are looking for reasons to feel good, you become so profoundly powerful that all the clutter gets out of your life.
Your life is right now. It's not later. It's not in that time of retirement. It's not when the lover gets here. It's not when you've moved into the new house. It's not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now, because it's not ever going to get better than right now until it gets better right now! Abraham-Hicks
As long as you are unable to access the power of the Now, every emotional pain that you experience leaves behind a residue of pain that lives on in you. Eckhart Tolle
