What should you pay attention to?

We tend to become what we give our attention to.

If we dwell on fear of what might happen in the future, we sort of become that future moment.

Which, of course, isn’t real.

We lose power when we focus too much on things that aren’t real.

[Be here now]

We sometimes give attention to the past…

because of some wrong we suffered, or some moment of shame.

But the past is no longer real.

Past moments were real once, but not anymore.

There’s nothing you can do about the past…

other than to accept that it formed your experiences…

and has shaped your destiny…

Up to now.

From here on out, the only thing that can shape your destiny is the decision you make now.

[Be here now]

The next decision is the one that counts.

You only act in the present moment.

[Be here now]

We lose track of our real self when we give too much attention to the future or the past.

We are not what we were, nor what we might become.

We are what we are now.
