“No one imagines that a symphony is supposed to improve in quality as it goes along, or that the whole object of playing it is to reach the finale. The point of music is discovered in every moment of playing and listening to it. It is the same, I feel, with the greater part of our lives, and if we are unduly absorbed in improving them, we may forget altogether to live them. Alan Watts
There are a lot of messages out there about living in the now. What we do in this now will affect our future and what we did in the ‘nows’ of the past have created our lives as they are today. So rather than always regretting things that have happened in the past and can’t be changed, or looking forward to that perfect day in the future when we have achieved whatever it is we think we want, it can be very satisfying to live each moment to the full and to the best of our ability and let it go!
I know we all find it easier to feel good when the sun is shining. The trick is, to decide to feel good in any given moment. One way to do this is to regularly connect with the energy of our hearts, to get in touch with the goodness of our authentic selves and live from that place throughout the whole symphony. However I have heard a quote that says there are no enlightened people, only people having enlightened moments.
Enjoy living lots of enlightened moments from start to finish! Robyn
