What if your now is very traumatic? Such as prisoners of war or kidnapped or tortured children. Some times people deliberately go into a self-deluding state to protect themselves from the truth of the present. How can you live in the present in such cases?

divea,
you are right but being an adult (now 28 years just married) I have a history and so always compare. Can' t optimise to feel optimal you know.

But you are right about probing and changing.

Subject:  trapped in the now
It' s a nice article looking at life and everything but I feel working in the city has trapped me in its now. I can' t breath outside of what happens now. It' s a circle what they say a vicious cycle of repetition. I do not feel free in the now because it no longer belongs to me.

I feel that if you truly live in the present, you realise that you have all the freedom you need. If you are feeling trapped, may be it is because you are comparing your present situation with a past or an ideal one. May be you have not learnt to focus on the positives. Optimism has to be the starting point for any attitudinal change. If you are not happy with your now, change it. But to know the real reason why you are not happy, again, you have to probe into your now.

Nice article.. I agree that we should live in the present... A lot of time and energy is wasted in dwelling over the past and the present is also lost at the same time in this process..

Yes, we worry too much about things. The basic point of life afterall is to stay happy. But we always act contrary to it.

spiritual living-igniting the Universal heart
A good spiritual practice is to start your day (each day) with purpose, intention and in the way you want to live that day. That might mean that you start your day with thoughts of love, gratitude and ease. Or it might mean that you wake up without the alarm clock and just stay in bed for a moment and affirm to yourself, “This is a beautiful day.” It might mean that... - nitin gonte [View Message]
