SMILE AT THE « NOW »

Nothing can equal the pure, simple and authentic joy we allow ourselves to feel today, simply because we chose to. Yes, nothing can equal the serenity inside us when we are where we are…

I believe that the magical secret of life is simply to LOVE it, to EMBRACE it, to SMILE at it.

Yesterday belongs to the Past ;
Tomorrow is not yet here and may not come,
TODAY IS WHAT I MAKE OF IT !

Who knows what can happen to us tomorrow or even in a few minutes ? It is so important to make the most of the present and to enjoy the things that make us happy without thinking unnecessarily about what « could » happen.

Being in the moment and Smiling at it, is a powerful source of JOY and SERENITY.

" When you become receptive, you will enjoy life much more. Everything will interest you." R.Vittoz.

When you smile at the now, try to feel what it is happening inside you. If you take time to stop, to look, to listen… you are in the now so you lose nothing and appreciate everything.
Also watch how the attitude of Others towards you changes. The essence of your relationships will no longer be the same ones.
First of all, when we smile, we feel happier in ourselves !
This helps us see our life in different colours, in another way, and our circle of acquaintances will also see it and feel it.

Then : tomorrow morning, start the new day with a SMILE and assess the results of this new behaviour tomorrow evening. It will be a beautiful day !
Also look at young children who live so well in the present moment, they are completely carefree, authentic, pure… which enable them to be themselves.

The Essential thing is to always remember that when we allow ourselves to be in the present, it makes us feel calmer, more serene physically and mentally.

How to be at Peace with yourself ?
“By making peace with the present. The present is the playing field of life. Indeed, life cannot be played anywhere else. Once you have made peace with the present, see what happens, what you can do or choose to do, or rather, what life plays out for you. The secret of the « Art of living », the secret of success and happiness can be summarized in six words : « To be at ONE with Life ».

TO BE AT ONE WITH LIFE MEANS TO BE AT ONE WITH THE « NOW ».
At this point, you will realize that this is not you who is living your Life, but Life which is living in you. Life is the dancer and you are the dance.”  Eckhart Tolle, New Earth

In an interview with the Dalaï Lama, one question particularly struck me :
« What surprises you the most in humanity ? »
He answered : « The man who looses his health to earn money and who, afterwards, spends his money to regain his health. By worrying about the future, he forgets the present, to such degree that he ends up living neither in the present nor in the future… He lives like he is never going to die and he dies as if he had never lived ».
These remarks full of wisdom must make us think…

LET YOUR SMILE BE THE PRACTICE 
OF YOUR NEW CONSCIOUSNESS
