Thought Adjuster: “One of the keys to happiness is to always live in the present moment. What does this mean? Without doubt, human beings live in the present moment because their physical existence is tied to a time frame. However, it is in the mind of man where time can be transcended and it is in the mind where a mortal must exercise control.
“Living in the present moment is to focus on the task at hand. It is to be somewhere without fantasizing about being someplace else. It is to face life with an attentive and awakened mind in order to overcome the challenges of human existence. Living in the present moment is a progressive awakening in which life becomes increasingly more real to those who decide to focus on the here and now.
“Many among you waste a lot of time fantasizing about what may happen and lamenting the facts and mistakes of the past. In the end, these concerns are useless, because there is nothing you can do to change something that has already happened nor are you capable of predicting what could happen. It is by acting in the present moment that you can exert some influence over your future. It is in this moment that you can decide to learn from the mistakes of the past or to remedy the situations that are the consequences of those mistakes.
“However, living in the present doesn’t imply a myopic vision of reality, in which immature mortals forget the intelligent planning that is necessary to ensure their well-being. The present time is not just a point in an infinite line going from the past to the future. When I suggest that you should live in the present, I am indicating that you should acquire an eternal point of view of reality. Only in this way will you be able to make the supreme decision of finding God without being concerned about when this goal will be reached, because to the Father this is already a reality in eternity.
“Once you have definitively made a fundamental decision in your life — one of eternal value — this becomes a reality in eternity and also in the experience of those who have learned to trust their Father and who have accepted by faith that they are His beloved children, to whom nothing is denied once they have decided to know and live the divine will.”
