Waterfalls are spectacular, simultaneously beautiful,
uplifting, overwhelming and bringing such immediacy
into our minds.
There is no wondering about
what the waterfalls were like
yesterday, no way to know what
they'll look like tomorrow.
There will always be a shade of
difference, a nuance noticed
or not, but to see them right now,
in this moment in their
powerful splendor---that is the
way to celebrate the present.
The Future is Made in the Present
The past, happy or sad, is dead. We can’t change it. It also doesn’t have any value for our purposes. Of course we can learn from our past mistakes, but dwelling on the past is just a waste of time.If we don’t think about the past, we usually think about the future.
Often we are afraid of the future, sometimes we look at the future with hope. But the future is made in the present. We need to start living in the present and concentrate on the present. We need to be happy now.
If we are happy now, we build our happy future. Because of that it is very important to gradually control the mind and to live in the now; try to be happy now.We can easily change our mind’s states. We can listen to some good music , we can think about someone we love or we can look at something beautiful. Whatever helps to feel happy.
A good way to get in the good mood is to do some simple breathing exercises, which very quickly help to achieve peace and control of the mind.Another good way is to practice gratitude for the things you have and the things you would like to have. You cannot feel unhappy when you feel grateful.
