The Present is Your Present

22nd January 2019

Napoléon Bonaparte, the great French conquering emperor, was known for his ability to focus on one task at a time.

Think about it – the only thing that truly exists is the “ever-present present”. Each moment that we experience, at the timing of that moment, is the only thing that actually exists. The past that that moment has left behind no longer exists. And the future represented by the moment after the present moment also does not exist.

The only thing we all have is this ever-present moment.

My experience is that I am far more effective and more fulfilled when I am absorbed in the task at hand until that task is completed to its natural limit.

The same goes for relationships. When I am focussed on the person in front of me and not distracted then the experience is more fulfilling and the person I am with feels more valued and respected. Don’t you dislike it when the person you are with is constantly distracted with calls/Whatsapps/Facebook etc.?

So, this is a key practice for me. I can write down my list of action points for the day. But the only list I need to be aware of moment by moment is the task I am doing now. Nothing more! And no distractions.

The “ever-present present” moment is your greatest present. It is your gift to a more effective and fulfilled present.

You can then let the future take care of itself.
