Our point of power is the present moment. The present is all that exists. The past and the future are illusions created by our minds. We convince ourselves that the illusion is real.
If we surrender to the present, we merge ourselves with our greater Selves. By giving up "control," we access the wisdom, love and joy that is our fundamental nature.
We no longer have to think about what decisions we need to make or what these decisions should be. We are connected to the natural flow that will guide us to act in our own best interest, as well as the best interests of all concerned.
We do not have enough information to determine what our best courses of action should be. We try to push life in directions which we think are in our best interest. This approach does not create fulfillment and often causes frustration.
By allowing life to take us where it wants us to go, we realize there is nothing we have to obtain or achieve to be satisfied. We may still work towards a goal, but we lose the desperation and frustration if things do not go exactly the way that we have planned.
When we become aware that we have been lost in thought about the past or the future, that is not a reason to chastise ourselves for not living in the present. On the contrary, it is an awakening into the present. The more that occurs, the more presence takes over our lives.
Let's surrender to now.
