There are more benefits of living in the present than you would have thought...
Most of us experience a continuous chatter in our minds. We have countless thoughts about the future, the past, or judgments about what is, which seem to flow through our minds as if in a neverending stream.
This continuous chatter has many consequences. The main one is that we are continuously distracted from what's actually going on in the present moment. In other words, we tend to experience life through our thoughts rather than through direct experience.
There are many benefits to living in the now - so many of them that as soon as you start living in the moment you will want to keep on doing it more and more.
Welcome to the now! A whole lot of gifts awaits you...
I found that there are many more benefits of living in the present which are specific to every person. In a way, living in the present allows you to become a larger version of yourself.
When I started using ways to come back to the present moment. I found that I really liked experiencing life in this way. It feels safe and extremely pleasant.
However, being a bit too enthusiastic about my newly found way, I said to myself, "Fine, so I'm alright just here just now, but will I be able to continue living in the moment in an hour from now, this afternoon, tomorrow?" In other words, I was worried that I would not be living in the now in the future.
Regarding that, I found that there is no need to worry about whether we're able to live in the present moment at any other time than in the present moment.
See, you can only deal with the now. And, as long as you are riding the now, you will be riding the now every moment - because the future will also be now at some point.
If you want to experience the benefits of living in the present, you want to start using ways that allow you to focus on the present moment little by little.
It's a matter of moving your attention away from your thoughts and towards what's actually happening here now.
A very good program to achieve being in the present moment for longer periods of time and enjoy the benefits of living in the present is Holosync.
Holosync is a series of meditation CDs which also effect change in our beliefs and way of looking at life. One of the results that Holosync produces is being able to live in the present moment easily.
Holosync is an extremely powerful program, but the results are slow to come. If you're up for a tool that allows you to start focusing on the now now, then I'd recommend Eckhart Tolle's book 'The power of now', in which among many insights you will also find techniques to focus on the present moment.
"Being in the moment involves giving maximum appreciation and love to your present experience."
