Deeply accept and surrender to the present moment.
Sometimes it is the best thing to walk away. However, it’s not always an option. In all those cases, the “I don’t want to be here” is not only useless but also dysfunctional. It makes you and others unhappy.
Think about how often you say, “I don’t want to be where I am”?
What does it feel like when you don’t want to be where you are: the traffic jam, your place of work, the airport lounge, the people you are with?
Whenever you find yourself saying, “I have so much to do,” ask yourself the following:
What is the quality of your doing? Are you resisting in some way, or are you completely present in your doing and surrendered to this moment? What is the quality of your:
- Driving to work?
- Speaking to clients?
- Working on the computer?
- Running errands, dealing with countless things—how present are you?
Pay attention to when you detect the slightest element within yourself of not wanting to be doing what you are doing.
If you can detect this within yourself, can you also drop it and be total in what you do?
Now surrender and allow the moment to just simply be without engaging in the internal dialogue.
