We have all been thoroughly indoctrinated with so much negative propaganda about our lives that it is a wonder we can remember how to be happy at all. At every turn we are reminded that life is a struggle, that work is difficult, that solving our problems will take tremendous effort, and that earning money is hard, hard work.

Our culture’s extreme focus on individualism, competition, and consumerism has stripped from us the ability to truly relax and enjoy the process of life, and bask in the effortlessness of our evolution. The effort we are asked to express in this lifestyle drains our spiritual, creative energy.

We need only look beyond our societal expectations to see how deluded we are. The natural world is dynamic, active, constantly growing and evolving, yet it is driven without any effort. Everything that is truly important in the world is done without the kind of striving effort that our conscious minds are so used to. The forests of the earth grow effortlessly, the seasons change effortlessly, the cells of your body have grown from a microscopic fetus to a fully intelligent being effortlessly.

Your body is, in this very instant, performing tens of thousands of highly specific actions in order to keep you alive without any input from your conscious mind.

What you must learn is that your conscious mind is not meant to be used to worry about any of the functions of living. There is a deep intelligence at work in the universe, and you must develop the faith that this intelligence will meet your needs just as it meets the needs of every cell in your body, and every animal on the planet.

Your conscious mind should not be used to worry about a million things that might go wrong. Your conscious mind should be used only to direct the focus of your life and to enjoy the fruits of your actions.

Consciously decide in which direction you want to evolve, and then let the infinite energy of your inner self take over. Realize that you can attract money without any effort on your part, and realize that it is okay to do so.

Obviously you will need to use your energy in the physical world, but when you are doing what you want you will not be filled with stress but with joy and enthusiasm. Hard work is for those who have not bothered to learn how their minds work. For you, life is truly effortless, and truly enjoyable.

The Greatest Obstacle to Happiness http://howtocreateyourfuture.com/the-greatest-obstacle-to-happiness/ Mon, 02 Jul 2012 18:02:41 +0000 http://howtocreateyourfuture.com/?p=1424 Continue reading ]]>

By Dr. Robert Anthony, Creator of The Secret of Deliberate Creation

Think of your present moment as your Point of Power, because it is the only point where you can exercise your full power. For most of us the present moment exists only as mental concept. If there is such a place where all the creative forces of the universe come together, how do we know it is the present moment? What evidence is there that this is true?

Consider this; all your hopes for the future and even your memories of the past can happen only in the present moment. The present moment is that one point where everything comes together.

We have been taught that those moments are separate from each other, but in truth, they all take place in the now. No matter what happens in life, it is always now, then now, then now – always in the present moment.

Nothing exist outside of the NOW. Nothing ever happened in the past. – It happened in the Now. Nothing will ever happen in the future – It will happen in the Now. When you think of the past it is stored in the mind as a former now. And, when you think about the past, when do you do it? – You do it now! When the futures comes – it comes in the now. And, when you think about the future, when do you do it? – You do it now!

The past and the future have no realities of their own. Their realities are “borrowed” from the now.

All unhappiness is caused by denial of the present. We think problems are caused by our situations in life, but attachment to the past and future and denial of the now is the real problem. Ultimately then, there is only one problem in life – not living in the now.

You cannot be unhappy and fully present now. It is impossible to have a problem when your attention is in the now. When you live in the now, a situation is either dealt with or accepted now. A problem means you are dwelling on a situation mentally without having a true intention or possibility of taking action now.

The Magic Trick to Be Happy Right Now http://howtocreateyourfuture.com/the-magic-trick-to-be-happy-right-now/ Sun, 03 Jun 2012 03:58:36 +0000 http://howtocreateyourfuture.com/?p=1410 Continue reading ]]>

By James Altucher

QUESTION: How can I be happy, when the future holds little promise, and you fear you haven’t lived the kind of life you can be content with?

ANSWER: In June, 2003, I Googled what would happen if I put three unlit cigarettes in a cup of water overnight. Then drank the water in the morning. The idea is that nicotine is a lethal poison. When you smoke it you burn most of the poison away. But if it drains into the water… The theory was I’d be dead of a heart attack in sixty seconds. My fear was that I would I have brain damage instead.

I’ve known people with brain damage. That would be no good.

It was three in the morning. I knew I was going to go broke. My office had papers and dead computers and dead books and the cards of dead friends everywhere. The IRS letter was next to my computer. I had an incomparable loneliness in all of my relationships. All the work and hours I had put in had added up to this dirty office and no money.

Or maybe there was the other time. My whole life added up to being escorted by police to a hotel room to spend the night. “To calm down.” Or the time I was thrown out of graduate school. Or the time I was asked by my boss, “don’t you think it’s important to show pride in your work?” Or the times I was cheated on.

If I really want to be honest I could say I threw a burning iron at someone and that’s when the police came. But perhaps that would seem too much. If I wanted to truly be correct, I could look back at the past and say I did everything they told me to do, all the secret agents that wanted to destroy me: friends, parents, colleagues, bosses, lovers, and here I am – look where I ended up? And where did they all go? Back to their safe houses, in the James Protection Program so I never see them again.

I could sit here all night until daybreak talking about the past, which is gone forever. And the future, which will never exist and yet seems so real. Maybe the economy will end us. Or global warming. Or Greece. or war. Or we lose our jobs. You and me. We can be scared all night together. And who will survive when the world turns Mad Max and rogue skinheads will kill us for our gasoline?

The future just a bleak desert, mirages of water only lasting a few seconds before I realize my thirst won’t be quenched. May never be quenched again.

One thing you forgot to mention in your question, my friend, is the present. Right now. The only thing we know exists. The most important thing of all and we left it out. I was googling cigarettes in water when I could’ve been looking in on my sleeping one year old. I could’ve kissed her forehead. I could’ve been grateful to be given such a magical moment. Then I could’ve called my father one month before his fatal stroke and told him I loved him. Instead I never spoke to him again.

I gave up that magical moment forever because of worries about the future and because of something I did in the past.

The magical moments only exist right now. They will never exist again.

The way we miss them is when we focus on the past. Or we try to drink from the mirage in the distant future. Flying unicorns could be all around us but our eyes are glazed over with cataracts of the dismal future and bleaker past.

I would say, “if only this company sells, I’ll be happy.” And then I was never more miserable. And then later I would say, “I blew it so bad I ruined everyone’s life and not just my own.” And then I was never more miserable.

If only I had left out both those statements out I never would’ve been more happy.

Abundance doesn’t exist only “after X, Y, Z happens”. Happiness doesn’t exist because “I already did A, B, and C”.

Magic and Abundance only can exist right now exactly because the past and the future simply don’t.

This doesn’t mean live only for the moment. We all have responsibilities. But DO them. And then be grateful. Find the five things you are grateful for. There’s always five or more. List them. That’s abundance. And it compounds into more abundance if you always bring yourself back to it when your mind wanders like a time machine. Everytime your mind wanders, bring it back, list what you are grateful for.

I’ll tell you a story. I asked Kathryn Schulz what the inspiration of her book, “Being Wrong” was. She said she was talking to a friend of hers and the friend was describing in great detail the funeral of her father. The snow coming down in large flakes that covered the ground, the tears, the intense sadness that brought the memory to life. “But,” Kathryn asked her, “I thought your dad died in July?” So there couldn’t have been snow.

The past lies. The future won’t come true. The abundance and magic are only here and now.

The Magic Trick

If you always bring yourself back to that present moment, the future will more than take care of itself.

The abundance will grow every time you bring yourself back to the present moment and count the things you are grateful for.

That’s it. That’s the only trick to get great abundance in your life.

We start off with that helpless destined feeling. That we will die with our handcuffs on. And the hopes we had would be put a stop to. We would be found guilty in our worst nightmares. We would be silenced by our fears.

But right now I’m happy I’m talking to you. I’m abundant because you are listening. I’m grateful because I can feel my breath. Maybe one day I’ll decay and die. Maybe one day all around me will be the mirage and the desperate heat. Maybe one day my past will seem too much for me. But right here and now you and I are both alive. We’re both breathing. Knock knock.

Today is the day to stop living for the future. This present moment is all that you will ever experience, so you must learn to enjoy the present, if you are ever to enjoy yourself at all.

Too many people postpone their happiness waiting for some future goal to manifest. People decide that they will be happy “…when I get a better job”, “…when I meet the love of my life,” “…when my children are grown,” “…when I retire.” We use these excuses, and countless others, to allow ourselves to live with less enjoyment and happiness than we deserve.

Often, after one goal is accomplished, we immediately create another, so that we are in a perpetual state of waiting for our lives to become worthy of our enjoyment, rather than simply enjoying the life we have right this instant. Obviously it is vital to keep striving towards the betterment of your life, but you must also be able to enjoy yourself while you are creating a better future.

The way to do this is to realize that this present moment is all that you will ever experience. Both the past and the future are abstractions of your mind. The only intimate, real experience is that of this moment. In this moment lies your ability to make changes in your life, including the ability to simply enjoy where you are. If you cannot be happy now, when will you ever be happy?

Fortunately, there is a simple method for enjoying this moment, and the key is awareness. Simply be fully aware of whatever you are experiencing right now. Focus your awareness on your senses, and feel the sensual nature of physical reality.

Look around you, really try to see the world, and listen quietly to any sounds entering your brain. By becoming aware of precisely where you are at this moment, your brain will shift to a more contemplative, relaxed state, and joy will naturally replace the discord of anxiety that comes from focusing on the past or the future.

When you become aware of the eternal now in which you exist, you can begin to feel the power that is available to you in every instant, and this power can be used to immediately work towards the attainment of your goals.
