When you feel anxious… Close your eyes! Go to your happy place. Imagine yourself on the beach. Waves crashing against the shore. Sand between your toes. The sun kissing the horizon. Salt-air filling your lungs. Nothing to do. Nowhere to go. You are content.
Feeling better? If that worked for you - congratulations! You just became present. You see, the past and the future are created concepts. Presence is the only reality. All you did was close your eyes - you never left - yet you changed the way you feel.
Now is the only reality.
