It means with your whole mind, body and soul you are there. You are conscious of everything around you; good or bad. Every decision you make; positive or negative is processed with vivid thinking and with an analytical mind
No matter how much we try to ignore certain feelings that disturbs our conscious being; no matter how we try to suppress our emotions, or ignore certain behaviors and actions; no matter how our surroundings may look undesirable to us we are there and present.
But if we rise with confidence, boldness, determination and focus after we have fallen or got disappointed about life situations; we can turn the situation around. I mean Being Present does not mean physically being there; it means with your whole (mind, body and soul) you enter into that space and own it . Present and fully aware of things and reactions
It means you do not wait for things to happen but you make things happen. Desirable or undesirable you take charge. You own up that space of change and be forceful in impacting for the course.
I have learned this for a very long time that: Being present means you are not a coward. It means owning up and being responsible enough for making any impact, change or transformation in things you believe in. We all go through things in life but the most regrettable thing to happen to a human is being absent to self.
Taking no charge and responsibility to oneself is a regrettable factor that affects human beings. We are created to occupy space, to take dominion over things and to effect. To take charge in every form! We can only do that when we are fully present.
Life was never meant to be a smooth sailing. Nothing even in the beginning of creation was easy; there has always been challenges for us as humans because we are not perfect. Right there in the garden of Eden. But how we make it through this journey of life is to allow ourselves to be there and face it!
Fear of being there in many times is the cause of breakdowns, disruption of a human life, disorganized life journeys and many others. We fear to fail. We are quick to want to be in the future and miss the present. Unfortunately the future cannot happen without the present. It’s a circle
Be in the present and enjoy the future
Fix your past to engage your present
Wait for the future with boldness and confidence
Because the present set the tone
