....say whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat???

i grabbed a book yesterday from the Spiritual Center 
and have barely been able to put it down.

i have SO many pages ear marked to make notes about 
and it has me thinking about so many things.

one of which is something i would love to
get feedback about...

here is an excerpt from the book that 
i am trying to process and digest:  

"Because I don't live in either my past or my future.  
I'm interested only in the present.  
If you can concentrate always on the present, 
you'll be a happy man.  
You'll see that there is life in the desert, 
that there are stars in the heavens, 
and that tribesmen fight because they 
are part of the human race.  
Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, 
because life is the moment we're living right now."

i can say that i agree completely with this passage 
but am not sure how to even begin to 
really live my life that way ... 
I am genuinely seeking it out and was wondering ...

how do you think it is possible to truly live in the 
present moment ... 
to not let past or future thoughts enter 
into your mind or your decision making??

what is the secret??



ps...this book is AMAZING!  
totally worth the read
