4 steps to keep our minds in the present

Version en español versão em portugues

When we interact with ourselves and with everyting around us, it’s important to be aware of acting more and reacting less. Today let’s concentrate on our thoughts, what goes through our minds all the time.

Last year I participated in a training to improve communication. The message was very clear, we carry many filters we are not very aware of, our judgements, and comparisons based on our own beliefs (which sometimes give us security because other people have also bought them), and they make our mind to keep reacting to everything we go through instead of being present (click here to read the text about deciding by conviction).

Many times, talking to someone, we start judging what the person is saying, on our mind, whether in a positive or negative way, and we already have a prepared answer. In some cases the person hasn’t even finished talking and we answer (befre we forget). And we do that constantly, in almost everything we do. We cook thinking about the time, take shower thinking about what we’re going to wear, etc., any situation mess up with our minds when we’re not aware of bringing it to the present moment.

Today we’re going to follow these steps to bring our mind back to the “here and now” and train it for acting from the moment on, instead of reacting from our filters:

  1. Choosing only one action to focus our mental attention.
  2. Concentrating on the person and/or action that is happening.
  3. If a thought comes up let it pass and come back to the focus point.
  4. Feeling, with all our possible senses, what we’re living.

As we practice following these steps, our minds get used to the new behavior pattern and our state of attention, and connection, in life changes. Share this post with someone who finds it necessary and tell us about you. Does our mind live in the future, in the past or in the present?
