We all dream for that life. You know, the one where you're truly happy. The one you look forward to in the future. Or perhaps, if you're fond of the past, you look back to it.
Regardless of where you're looking to find that so called happy life, there's one thing for certain: you're not looking where you are. And you're certainly not looking at who you are.
It's a sad fact that most of us live out our entire lives wishing for times to be different.
To be more peaceful. To be simpler. To be less problematic.
The truth is, the only time is now, and anything else is just a figment of the mind, also happening now.
There is no past. There is no future. There's only the current thought about the past, which is arising in the present.
There's only the current sensation of anxiety, which of course comes with a side of scary thoughts on the side. All served up hot, right now.
You see, there really isn't any other moment than now. In fact, now is not even a moment. It's all there is. It's the space which encompasses everything in your experience. In order to even have an experience, the experience must occur somewhere, within some perception. That perception is your awareness, and its your true nature, without which you wouldn't be here.
That life you've always dreamt about has been nothing more than a thought replaying in your head. The sooner you realize this, the sooner you return to yourself, the life you don't even have to dream about, because it's the life you are.
Live with substance!
