The Eternal Now
Not why or how
To be in the present
For the ‘present’ is a present
A gift from the Divine

To be in the present
Is to kill
The regrets of the past
Anxieties of the future

To be in the NOW
Is to secure the future

The Truth lies in the present
Moment

And that is the most hardest thing to do, The culprit is "Mind". When we are in toch with SOul only then we live in the moment.
Unfortunately we all are trained to exploit the Mind and value its decisions. Mind acts with fears of past and anxieties of future, whereas SOul is happy with the Moment, because it is eternal.

I am also a trained actor and I remember my teacher saying "Acting is living truthfully under imaginary circumstances in the moment and go to an unanticipated moment".

These days I correlate a lot of soulful/spiritual living to best practices in Acting.

I think the best actors are the ones who live in moment and I am sure on this big stage "Earth", we are all, Actors anyways, and we all would live a happy and beautiful life if we can live in the MOMENT.

with best wishes,
Suman

Dear Sumonk,
"Best actors are the ones who live in moment and I am sure on this big stage "Earth", we are all, Actors anyways," That was brillant! Yes that is perfectly true. If you watch yourself just for a day and see how many different roles you put on just in 24 hours. A father, a son, a professional, a commoner on the street, a driver driving. So many that too not in a lifetime, just in a singe day of 24 hours!

Your Acting teacher said the Truth in a beutiful manner. The Truth, the Divine walks in through anyone, anytime, as if just waiting to reach out to you.
