What makes your life special?
We remember certain times in our lives as special moments. We meet old friends and reminisce about the 'good ole' times.
Have you thought about what made those times so special?
Whether those special moments were filled with adventure and intensity, or were the most mundane moments, there is one simple similarity: We lived in the present moment.
We remember only those times when we allowed the richness of the outside world to interact fully with all of our senses. We kept ourselves open to the present experience moment by moment. Those experiences get recorded in our memories forever as special moments.
On the other hand, we do not remember when we were lost in thought. We do not remember those times when we sat and thought about the past or the future. Those times are just bleeps in our memory.
That is one simple truth about life. Our life is not the days we have lived but the days we remember. Or in other words, our life is a sum total of all present moment living.
Happy New Year and Peace Out!
