Every Moment is Perfect.

Recently I decided to start doing less talking, more listening....especially to my own inner voice. I've learned some interesting things. For instance; my fears are a pack of lies! Seriously, I'm realizing how much they are just stories I tell myself. Yes, they may be based on something that really happened, something that hurt, but just because I was hurt once doesn't mean I need to be afraid forever! Our fears are meant to protect us, but actually end up isolating us behind giant walls. I am starting to see that my fears are an illusion, a trick of the mind. Mariann Williamson writes that only love is real. Nothing else actually exists. If a person behaves un-lovingly, then it means their behavior is derived from fear. And since fear only exists in our minds, that person is hallucinating.

I'm beginning to grasp the concept that all that actually exists is right here, right now, this moment. The past is gone and exists only in my mind, the future hasn't happened yet. All that is real is right NOW. When I am able to be fully present in the moment, I've realized that thanks to the Universe, most of the time right NOW is actually pretty wonderful. Makes all that worrying and being fearful seem like a big waste of energy!

The Universe is a living organism, of which we are a tiny part, like cells of a much larger body. And like the body needs no reminder to breathe, or for the heart to beat, the Universe automatically provides everything needed for all parts to function, grow and flourish, whether plant, animal, or human. If I look closely enough, right now I have everything I need. I am safe, I am loved, I am free. A perfect moment. If I look closely, it seems that each "right now" is a perfect moment, everything unfolding exactly as it should and nothing to be afraid of.

Unless life or limb is in jeopardy, most fears are of the "not enough" variety. Not enough love, not enough money, not enough power, status, etc. When we are afraid, we are choosing to not to see what we have, instead focusing on what we think is missing. My fears are a lie, a hallucination, I have everything I need. If it's not here, I don't need it! I may want it...but I don't actually need it. You can't always get what you want, but I believe we do get exactly what we need. What you choose to do with it is up to you.

My new mantra is "In this perfect moment I have everything I need." This is so powerful because it brings me back to the present moment and returns my attention to right here, right now. I always find that what is happening right now is a beautiful thing. Even if something difficult is happening I am able to see it is for my highest good and helping me to grow. I am discovering that by continually redirecting my focus to the present moment, my fears are losing their power over me. I am finding that my intuition is sharper and my inner voice is becoming clearer, easier to hear. I can feel things, people, connections, love, much more intensely. It's as if my worries and fears have been clouding my view, but now they are lifting, allowing the light to shine through. I am realizing that my fears are nothing more than mist, blinding me to the beauty and joy that is already present.

In this perfect moment, I have everything I need.
Love. Joy. Peace. Happiness.
