Why it is important to live in the present moment?


Understand the benefits of living in the present moment? 

Quote - Look past your thoughts, so you may drink the pure nectar of this moment.   Rumi

In the last post on a similar topic 'The true way to live a happy life, I shared some ways to live a happy life. If we ask people that Are they happy in their live? then most of them will say they are not. Why it is so? Why people are not happy in their lives? There are many reasons behind it and today, we will further discuss one more reason which is responsible for the unhappiness of many people and it is the tendency of people to get pushed either into the memories of the past or into the imaginations of the future. This habit wastes our valuable time and energy which otherwise we may have used in shaping our life positively. We all want to live a happy life in this world but unfortunately, only a few of us are successful in it. A large number of us are still struggling with the games of mind which keep on pushing us into the past or future.

The real-life only exists in the present (now) and the rest of the other things are our memories or imagination. The memories may be good or bad, they belong to a time that has passed and we can't do anything about it so we need to make a balance between past memories and present. 

Similarly, there are many people who are worried about the future and work hard to make their future bright; however, in this race, they forget to live and enjoy their present. Many of these people completely waste their present life for an unknown future. Sadly, some of them never get a chance to see the future for which they worked hard. In this way, they neither enjoy their present nor future. It is very important for every person to understand the importance of the present because it is something which is in our hands. It is wrong to postpone happiness and essential things to the future because time never comes back. Once you lose something, you lose it forever.

 Therefore, it is important for all of us to understand the importance of the present time and start enjoying it. The happiest people in this world are one who knows to enjoy their present and not the one who only work for the future or lives in the past. It is also fairly important to secure our future; however, it is totally wrong to waste the present for an unknown future. Similarly, the past has gone much before and it is an irreversible process, we can never get back things that we lost in the past so unnecessary thinking about the past will not solve any problem. It will only waste our time and move us away from the present time.
