Treatment for Living in the Present
by Marilyn O’Leary, RScP
The truth is there is nothing but the Present. The Present is where we find God, Love, Peace, Joy, Abundance, Creativity, Faith, Freedom, Happiness. It is where we find deep spirituality. The Present is the only place we truly live.
There is no such thing as the future. We cannot predict what the future will bring. We can only affirm that we will know what to do when we need to, just as we know what to do now.
I am Divinely Guided in all ways. There are no mistakes, only experiences to learn from. In my breath I find the present, and the Divine Presence. In my breath, now, is where I find God. As Louise Hay has written, the point of power is in the present. All I desire is here now – I have all I need and want. My life is a life of Joy. I am creative and express myself uniquely and joyously. I have faith that Spirit has my back! I am held in the arms of Spirit. All is well.
Just as this is true for me, it is true for all who read and believe these words. When we live in the present, we know what we need to do when we need to do it. We don’t have to anticipate, plan, expect, unless we have the expectation that the Universe is for us, and there is no one or nothing against us. We affirm Divine Guidance, we vision and create from possibilities, we affirm that Spirit is everywhere, in, through, and around us. We bring our unique gifts, talents, love, and kindness to the world. That is true.
I am grateful for a world that exists in the Now, for knowing that I am taken care of if I believe and do what is before me. I am grateful for all of those who share this beautiful present moment with me.
I release this affirmative prayer knowing that it comes back to me fulfilled.
And so it is. Amen.
