“Live for Today”—the Holy Grail?

Three Little Words That Can Change the World

Yes, we hear this little phrase often, but if we really stop to think about what it means, it’s truly the philosophical Holy Grail of life. Why? If you are living in the past, it may be with regret. You wish you had chosen this instead of that. You wish you had gone there instead of here. The subsequent energy or emotions that are attached to these thoughts can range from slight disappointment to anger or frustration. You are mentally beating yourself up or wanting to make someone else responsible for your choices in life. And don’t beat yourself up for that either—it’s a human tendency—but become aware of what it is you are doing.

If you are only living in the future, you may become a little fearful of life. You may wonder if you can handle it all…or, how you can live up to yours or someone else’s goals or expectations. It boils down to the simple fact—the thoughts attached to regret over the past, or worry over the future, simply keep us floundering …the energy is in motion but it’s slightly retrogressing, not progressing. And sometimes, we not only do that within a lifetime, but in more than one lifetime.

God gives us plenty of time, because in essence, there is no such thing—time is man-made. Since it made by us, we can use as much of it as we need to get it right. But why keep spinning our wheels? At some point in “time” we say enough. And we either remember to ask or we breakdown and ask…for help. Within nanoseconds of projecting this thought into the universe, our guides and angels are there waiting to assist. Even if it’s painful facing that difficult moment, you are working through it and, in doing so, you are garnering faith and strength for having done so. Then the next thing you know, you are back to the “now” and feeling peaceful all over again…or at least working your way there, progressing.

So don’t ever underestimate your own God-given capability to have your own Holy Grail, living life effortlessly in the moment of now. For today is the only thing that is real, and it’s the feelings attached to those moments from which all other moments arise. So today is the only time that counts. Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Great men are they who see that the spiritual is stronger than any material force—that thoughts rule the world.”
