Gasp! How can ‘be present’ not be great advice? If you’ve been around any personal development work, you would have heard this at least once.
I’ve recently been switched onto Bentinho Massaro’s youtube videos and teachings, thanks to my friend Desre. And I learned a great distinction that has certainly changed how I look at everything I do. This isn’t the first time I’ve heard of this way of considering ‘the present’, but this time it really hit home and I just had to share it with you.
There are tons of ’gurus’ who teach that it’s important to be present. The state of being present, not dwelling on the past or wishing for the future is good advice, but it’s not great advice because it’s only half the equation.
The second half is that the present is a reflection of the past, so if you’re constantly staying present you’re living in the past. Let me say this once again because it’s THAT profound. When you react to the present by ‘being present’ you’ve living in the past.
What’s the alternative? Don’t despair if you’ve subscribed to the ‘stay present’ advice. It’s not completely wrong and it’s much better than what most people do, which is dwell on the past. Learning to be present is the first step for most people.
If you’re ready to take it to the next level, the most powerful shift you can make is into the state of future presence, the creator state. While you are always there, being consciously there is another story.
This means that whatever you’re feeling, thinking and saying is the next present. Bringing awareness to your thoughts, feelings and words as if you’re creating the next present is extremely powerful and will take you to a place of infinite potential, to true abundance.
Last week a friend asked me a great question: How do you tap into abundance?
And the answer is: by owning 100% that you’re the creator of every reality you’re perceiving and by practicing the state of future presence, truly practicing it.
