Everything here, however worthy, has the potential to turn into stressful examples of ‘I must’ and ‘I should’. I must exercise, I should eat healthily, I have to meditate etc. The wonderful thing is that all we have to remember is the last one. When we are truly present, living in the Now, everything else falls into place. Musts and shoulds become unnecessary pressures and stresses, and we are free to simply respond to the needs of the moment. It has nothing to do with carelessness or neglect; it doesn’t mean becoming passive. It involves response – ibilty, but without the idea of a burden. This is happiness; it is effort-free and every human being’s birth right.
Happiness is living in the Now.
Remember to be kind and gentle with yourself.
