Everything Is Temporary, So Live Life NOW!

Line Break

I am a visual artist from Maine. I love skiing and white water rafting. I am currently a watercolor freak.

If you are anything like me, you have spent a lot of time in your life focusing on the future and trying to expand your life into new and better circumstances. You probably envision a future where the things you want flow easily and freely to you, and you see yourself happy and contented. On my best days, I know this is true for me. But I have also noticed that when the new thing or circumstance arrives, I occasionally long for the the way things used to be. While I really wanted the new and evolving life circumstances, I sometimes wish I had enjoyed the things I used to have even more while I had them. I am sure you can all relate to this. It can be a challenge to love the things you have while you have them, especially as you look to the future with longing for something new. Law of Attraction works in your favor most efficiently as you live the vibration of the new condition in the present, so being a deliberate creator will necessarily dictate some letting go of old vibrations and patterns. More often than not I think we get frustrated when our new condition: job, weight loss, money, relationship, or whatever, hasn’t come yet, and we put off being happy and feeling better in reaction to our current condition. This is a double whammy to our connection and conditions because feeling bad in the present ruins the experience of the present, and it also keeps the new future from manifesting as well. The only way to a happier place…is through a happy place. The only place you ever experience anything is right NOW. So the key to getting where you want to be is to make the most of where you are right now, right here, in this precious moment in time.

So you probably “get it” that now is all we have, and that you have to make the most of it; and you may still be thinking “but I still have no _____ (fill in the blank) right now.” Gratitude Planet, help me get my stuff! We all have moments when we get frustrated and need a tool to find our way back up the emotional scale. I like to remember, whenever I can, that no matter how you feel about your present, it is only temporary. Everything on planet Earth is temporary. Everything you own, every relationship you have, everything you see, and everything in your present reality will pass into some other form sooner than later. And when your present becomes your past, will you be glad with the way you enjoyed what you had? No matter how bad you want your new conditions, are you ready to love the things you have right now, knowing that they will inevitably pass through your fingers and into your past? Today is a good day to ponder this question.

The Gratitude Planet staff has been really busy this spring with various jobs, projects, and workshops. The talk in the office has been about how busy everyone is, and how things seem to be very compressed in terms of time. So I have been on an “everything is temporary” mantra, helping us all remember that no matter what now is, and feels like, sooner than later it will all change. I remind us all to find things to love and enjoy today…right now…while it is still here and active in our present. My feedback indicates that this is making a positive difference for many who are taking it to heart. Love your present moment, and live in it fully. Loving your now opens the door to allowing your best version of the future. Loving your now pays off RIGHT NOW! Being happy and savoring everything as a temporary circumstance causes you to stay centered in this moment, which is where you will experience all your joy, passion, connection to Source Energy and the Vortex, wealth, wellness, prosperity, and appreciation. Live now. Love now. It is all you have, and it is all you will ever have. Thanks for reading. Let me know if you liked this post!  Lisa-GP

      Thanks for the comment. Yes, it is sad, and it is amazingly joyful. Everything that helps us live in the moment also enhances our perception of the joy available to us at all times. Love this day! CHRIS

      This is one of the saddest/most beautiful things i’ve ever heard: are you ready to love the things (could also put ‘people’ here) you have right now, knowing that they will inevitably pass through your fingers and into your past?

      thanks for writing this

      We are on the same wave, Lisa. I’ve been repeating that exact mantra to all of my colleagues. I like to think that love is the only thing that lives forever. Source is love, and source has been there and will continue to be there forever. The love we feel for others is there forever (not matter what others think).
