08/18 for today

“to take what there is, and use it, with out waiting forever in vain for the preconceived – to dig deep into the actual and get something out of that – this doubtless is the right way to live.”

to ‘live in the now’ is such a new age thing to say, but it’s a truth that cannot be denied. now is all i have, everything else is smoke, everything but right now is history or imaginings. the right now is the only moment i can actually affect. all i can do with history is to accept it. all i can do for the future is affect the now in a way that MIGHT also make for a future i hope for, still there are no guarantees. if i spend my time waiting for the perfect moment or perfect circumstance, i’m just sitting still stagnating. there is nothing fun or attractive in that picture.

‘to dig deep in the actual’…. there are actual traits and abilities i possess that can be utilized. i don’t need to be a rocket scientist or an award winning something or other… i am what i am and can do what i can do… and not taking advantage of that is a waste of resources. yes.. i am a resource – in my own life and what a better way to honor the natural wonder of that truth than to use it to the best of my ability – wring every bit out of me that i can. that sounds efficient, resourceful and intelligent. go figure.

for today, i’ll connect with my higher power, seeking guidance on how best to live in my ‘now’ using my natural given resources to the best of my ability. this sort of behavior should benefit both myself and those around me.
