Embrace the Present: Your Pathway to Wellbeing

Living in the present

In the fast-paced rhythm of modern life, we often forget the importance of living in the present. Caught between future worries and memories, we lose sight of the only moment we truly have: the now. Living in the present is not just a key to achieving well-being. It is also essential for aligning with our true essence. This helps in enjoying a fulfilling, meaningful life.

The First Line of Thought

The “first line of thought” refers to our current point in life. It is the result of all our previous experiences and decisions. By understanding that our current state is the culmination of our personal history, we can appreciate the importance of each moment and how it shapes our future.

Collective and Personal Evolution

Everyone contributes to a collective evolution through their experiences and desires. When we interact with our environment and express personal preferences, these integrate into a universal energy stream that responds to our invocations. This process ensures that well-being and prosperity are available for future generations, benefiting from today’s desires.

The Power of the Present

Living in the present is a skill we all must cultivate. Our brain tends to split between the past and the future: the rational part plans and worries about what will come, while the emotional part relives what has already happened. However, only the present is real and tangible. Focusing on the here and now can reduce anxiety, improve our concentration, and fully enjoy life.

The Practice of Meditation

Meditation is a powerful tool for grounding ourselves in the present. Through meditation, we learn to observe our thoughts and emotions without judgment, allowing mental noise to dissipate and revealing inner clarity. Regular meditation practice improves our mental and emotional health and connects us with our spiritual essence.

Identifying and Understanding Our Desires

Often, our desires are influenced by external factors such as society, culture, and others’ expectations. It is essential to learn to distinguish between authentic and implanted desires. By understanding which of our desires are genuine, we can better align with our true source of well-being and make decisions that truly benefit us.

Balancing Desires and Satisfaction

Living in a constant search for more can lead to perpetual dissatisfaction. There will always be someone who has more and someone who has less. Finding a balance between aspiring to improve and being satisfied with what we already have is important. Focusing on our achievements and what truly makes us happy can reduce the need to compare ourselves with others.

Lessons from History and Contemporary Life

History is full of people who have found peace and satisfaction by aligning with their true purpose. From historical figures like Francis of Assisi, who renounced material wealth to find spiritual peace, to accidental scientific discoveries like penicillin, we see how aligning with our essence and genuine pursuit can lead to great achievements.


In conclusion, living in the present is an art that requires practice and awareness. By focusing on the now, understanding our true desires, and practicing meditation, we can find a path to well-being and fulfillment. The key is to appreciate each moment, learn from our experiences, and align with our true essence to enjoy a meaningful and satisfying life.
