The title of this short post is something we would be wise in asking ourselves. Where am I? Many people sadly are held captive in the constant state of hoping the world will get better if they just do this or that, but what is happening when we do this, spend all of our energy on making change? We are being distracted from living in our here and now. We are not fully enjoying our lives or ourselves if we are always lost in trying to make things better. If you are always trying to make things better, that is saying that your life or your ‘now’ is lacking and in need of repair. If we are always trying to fix the world, ourselves or our lives, we are not enjoying our ‘Now’ life and we are missing the whole point of living life to its fullest. Nothing will ever be perfect and if we can’t accept that fact and just enjoy what we do have, we are missing out on so much. Yes the world appears to be imploding all around us and drowning in chaos. That is why it is even more paramount that we make sure we enjoy what we do have despite the insanity. We need to terminate our obsessions with what is wrong in the world and center our attentions on what is right and make life matter. So grab hold of your ‘Now’ and live your life in appreciation and gratitude for what you DO have.
By the way, I am not saying stop completely trying to help where help is needed in the world. I am just saying don’t get buried in what is wrong and forget to live what is right.
Blessings to us all,
