Be Here Now! – The Affirmation Spot for Saturday April 19, 2008

Very short blog today. April and I arrived in Honolulu yesterday. This morning we were sitting on the beach at Waikiki. I started thinking about our schedule for the week and our intinerary for returning home and , then, I stopped myself. I remembered Ram Dass’ old book Be Here Now.

That’s really what it is all about. We spend a lot of time in the past and the future. Now is what we have and the quality of our lives is diminished when we are not present in this moment. Everything we can do anything about, everything that is real and important is right here in this moment.

The past is the past. The future will care for itself. We need to be fully present, fully engaged in the now. That is where our peace, happiness, and fulfillment are to be found.

Then I was able to enjoy my morning on Waikiki. Appreciate and experience it the way I intended.

We have already been getting a heavy dose of that Aloha spirit. So many people from so many places here and everyone getting along. It is possible for the world, not just Hawaii, to be that way.

May you be who you are and where you are today without qualification and thrive in the present moment.

We’re on to the our cruise this evening.

Aloha!

Be peaceful Be positive Be prosperous!

My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.

  2. Dean and Susan,

    I am so glad you enjoy the blog! Sorry to not respond sooner. Coming back off the trip and picking up the loose ends has kept me busy the past few days.

    Yes. I would be honored to review Susan’s book in June.
