Future! This is one word that has a different meaning in everyone’s life. However, there is one common thing- everyone thinks and plans for the future. No matter what age, gender, cast, and region you belong to, you have future plans. The future can be the next hour, the next day, the next week, the next year or your entire life; you ought to have a plan for it. People do not live quietly and stress about their plan all throughout their lives. The question- So, what are your futures plans? Is one of the most commonly asked questions in the day to day life.
I do not say that there is something wrong with future plans and being worried about it. All I want to pinpoint is that people usually forget to live quietly in the present and keep stressing about the things that are uncertain. It is a fact that time is uncertain. You cannot say for sure that tomorrow at the same time you will be doing the same thing that you have planned to do. Can you? So what is the point in forgetting to live quietly and not enjoying the beauty of the present and constantly thinking about the future?
Paramahansa Yogananda’s words fit perfectly with this article. He says:
“Live quietly in the moment and see the beauty of all before you. The future will take care of itself.”
The future is uncertain and will never work as per your plan. You cannot plan out every tiny detail of the future. Hence it is better to live quietly and enjoy the perfect moments that you keep missing.
How to Live Quietly in the Moment?
The best way to live quietly at the moment is by paying attention to the present. Be as present at the small moments as you can. Think of each day as a new experience and a new journey of your life. When you live quietly and enjoy every moment of your life as it happens, your life automatically becomes more interesting. Additionally, by not paying attention to the small moments in your life, you miss out on a lot of new experiences and life lessons that are important to live happily. You are wasting your life when you do not live quietly at the small moments and only worry about the future plans.
What to Do About the Future Plans?
The obvious question that pops into the mind is- what about the future plans? What will happen to the future if I start to live quietly and enjoy my life? Well, let’s just say that the future will take care of itself. All you need to do is set some definite goals and work in their direction. Do not over stress yourself and take baby steps without thinking about the outcome.
To conclude, I would like to say that enjoy all the small moments in your life. Make memories and stop worrying about the future plans. Who knows what the future holds. Hence, it is not logical to ruin the peace of your mind for the sake of something so uncertain.
