The Refuge

As I look back on my life I see it more as a Comedy than a Tragedy. A comedy in which you have a great big belly laugh while your heart is breaking.

One of the most important things I learned on my life journey is to live in the present moment for it’s the ONLY LIFE YOU HAVE.

The Present Moment is your REFUGE. The present is a place providing safety and contentment. It’s where your good functioning and mental health resides.

Your Healthy Functioning is your peace of mind, your satisfaction with life at the moment, your contentment and it allows your mind to feel at rest. It allows you to enjoy the present, rather than struggle and fight the ebbs and flows of life.It allows you to remember that the most important thing in life is ENJOYING IT and feeling INNER PEACE.

What is life?

Life is a constant series of present moments to be experienced one right after another. Constantly living in the “NOW.”

Living in the Present means you are focusing on what is happening Right Now. You know your life is too important to worry about the past or future.

Living in the Present makes worry fade away because rather than worrying about what might happen, your thinking is focused on what is the best you can do right now.

You have to let go of worry and struggle because it is a waste of time, energy and your life.

Conscious breathing exercises will keep you in the Present.

Remind yourself how wonderful life is when you aren’t worrying about the future and you’re living in the present.

The past is history. The future is a mystery.The present is the only life you have.

Always appreciate the gift of another new day.

You handle old age by LIVING in the moment and FOR the moment.
