The past is behind us and the future always remains ahead of us. The choices we made that comprise the past were made when that time was the present. And, it is impossible to be in the future. So, we are left with the present; this moment, the now. Therefore, this is all we have to handle.
When we realize and acknowledge the “limitation” of only having the now, we are free to make choices based upon this. This freedom comes from recognizing we are only able to make decisions that incorporate what we learned from the past into what is happening at the moment. All that we need to choose is to what to say, do, think, and feel about right now.
Therefore, choose to notice the peace that washes over you when you limit your vision to dealing only with what is in the now. By doing so, you are able to be clear in your thinking which allows you to feel the inherent power that comes with maintaining your focus within what is possible.
