Can you learn to totally live in the moment?

Do you know what that means?

It means erase all of your personal history, so nothing will get in your way of living for the moment.

You can't remember that someone said "You always get sick" -- and therefore you do.

You can't remember that your teachers said you were always complaining of aches or pains, and therefore you have them.

You can't remember that your folks said you were very susceptible to germs and therefore you are.

Do you understand how important this is? If you want to live in the moment, you can't let something that is not in that moment BE in that moment.

Let's say you wanted to go somewhere, but you aren't feeling well, and you know, from past experiences, it will only get worse.

Well, you know what? That *past experience* is not who you are now -- that *past experience* is MAYBE who you were then. (And, actually, it really is just a MAYBE.)

Are we interested in who you were then? No. We are interested in who you are NOW.

If that is true, and it is, then why are you thinking about what was? Why not just let old memories dissolve and disappear?

Can you do that?


OK. Let's do it now. Here's how:
Put that old thought about how sick you are and how sick you will probably be, along with the picture you have in your head of how you've been so sick before, in a cloud -- a cloud covered with a fine mist.

Now the mist is raising the cloud. That cloud is rising higher and higher. It had something in it, didn't it? What was it? You can't see it, can you?

Oops, it's trying to poke through.

Color it with crayons of different colors on all sides. Now, you can't see it, can you?

Ooops. You say it's still coming through?

Do you do fireworks? You know what fireworks would do to that, don't you? Kabam!

If that doesn't work, attach a long string to the cloud. Mentally light the bottom of the string, and watch as the flames leap up and the whole thing burns to nothing.

Now, you realize you're doing this all in your mind, don't you? In your mind you can do anything.
DO WHATEVER IT TAKES to get rid of that cloud holding that old thought. If you are still having a problem, do this: Blow up a balloon, put ALL of this in it, and then let it shoot clear up to the moon when you release the air.

You finally got rid of it, didn't you? Good.

Now, go back to living in the moment. You are feeling better and better. You don't remember any of that old stuff, because each time an old, unsupporting thought comes up, you let it go.

Once it's gone, concentrate on your pulse. Be very quiet until all you can hear is your pulse beat.

At this very moment, isn't your life in it's perfect place?

Relax and enjoy this time, and let your old negative thoughts about health disappear. Feel the peace and enjoy life.

Now, I ask you, why would you want to spend your time letting old thought patterns come up, when it feels so much better imagining a perfect life? Why not spend your time attracting that perfect, healthy life, instead of reliving your old, predictably unhealthy life?

Remember, if you are reliving the parts of your old life that you didn't, and don't, like or want, you are attracting the very things you don't want.

If you take the time and effort to change your view of reality, your brain will put in the time and effort to make your reality become your view.
