“The only authentic responsibility is toward your own potential, your own intelligence and awareness-and to act accordingly… if you act according to your past, that is reaction… Response is moment to moment. It has nothing to do with memory, it has something to do with your awareness. You see the situation with clarity; you are clean, silent, serene. Out of this serenity, you act spontaneously. It is not reaction, it is action. You have never done it before. And the beauty of it is that it will suite the situation.” (Osho, 2003, p.32).

How can we give up our conditioned worries, fears and insecurities, while allowing ourselves to be with whatever is happening now? Staying focused more and more on this moment, instead of fretting over the past or worrying about the future, you will begin to notice some significant shifting in your awareness on what is really true. When you are no longer occupied by needless regret over the past or anxious anticipation of the future — you create an opening from your emerging wisdom for your full creativity, gifts, and talents to emerge.

As we continue to peel off the layers of dread and doubt that have kept us from noticing who we truly are, we might meet up with some of our old, outdated belief systems along the way. These will be reminders of how far you have come. And every single awareness that has assisted you in accessing your most expanded potential is permanently recorded. Nothing can change that. Further, once you begin to identify what you truly long for, stop grasping for it and simply allow it to emerge by letting go of any need to control — you will be endowed with treasures beyond your most favorable imaginings.

  1. Beautiful words, Luann! Thank you for sharing!

  2. This is such excellent, poignant advice for any situation. And women are the special culprits. How often do we go from a quick meeting of Mr. Handsome to plotting and planning becoming Mrs. Handsome and the forever status? It’s so important to be mindful of our thoughts and try to savor each present moment. Thanks for the great reminder!

  3. I can’t tell you how many times I tell my girlfriends to let go of the past and take every moment at face value!

  4. Your post reminds me of one of my favorite poems. I discovered it when I was in my twenties. I hope you don’t mind me posting it.

    Look to this day
    for it is life
    the very life of life.

    In its brief course lie all
    the realities and truths of existence
    the joy of growth
    the splendor of action
    the glory of power.

    For yesterday is but a memory
    And tomorrow is only a vision.
    But today well lived
    makes every yesterday a memory
    of happiness
    and every tomorrow a vision of hope.

    Look well, therefore, to this day….

    ~ ancient Sanskrit poem ~

    A timely post from Dr. Luann Robinson Hull

  6. Worry— my plague. Whenever in a fret fit about the future, I remember this scripture: “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself.”

  7. Reblogged this on Lisa Jey Davis and commented:
    Living for NOW. These are words and a sentiment that capture the essence of our cultural vernacular. But how easy are these words to embody? Not very. Living for now and letting go of all attachments that keep us tethered to the past or wishing for the future must be a life-goal and a focused discipline. These are words that resonate with me. I see their value and hope to excel at executing them one day. Live for Now… and Dr. Luann Robinson Hull expounds on it so well… Read on…
