“Most people are prisoners, thinking only about the future or living in the past. They are not in the present, and the present is where everything begins.” - Carlos Santana

The present is the most amazing, geographical location on the planet as this is where you begin to create whatever it is that you want.

Mental conflict or conflicting vibrations cannot exist here.

You see, it’s a gift.

Don’t let the past or past mistakes keep you captive.

You only really have the present and your present moment happiness is the foundation for getting out of any self-imposed psychological jail.

Your goal is to get the key and get out.

How do you do this?

Relish the moment, good, bad or indifferent as it is fleeting and can only be recaptured later as a memory.

The only method of living in the present moment is to be absolutely aware of your present moment thinking.

This can be very frustrating as emotion invariably enters the equation and as a result it becomes more difficult to remain in the present moment.

If unaware, your thoughts create this time vortex of continually traveling back and forth.

Self-discipline is the answer.

The more that one learns to focus on the present moment reduces any possibility of a self-imposed imprisonment.


Go to a dollar store and purchase a laser pen.

Your investment will be approximately two to three dollars but the residual benefit to you will be peace of mind.

In your quiet time and on a daily basis, direct your laser pen onto an inanimate object.

The first time you do this, think of nothing else but where the location of the laser pen is directed.

Absolutely do not think of anything else to the best of your ability.


At first this might appear to be an insurmountable obstacle.

After fifteen seconds of sustained concentration ones mind begins to take a trip and wander about with their thoughts.

This is absolutely normal and natural. However, sustained concentration can be learned and developed by anyone on the planet that has a desire to elevate his or her level of awareness.

Do the latter activity for intervals of fifteen seconds, sixty seconds, ninety seconds and ultimately attempt to achieve a time span of five minutes.

When you strive towards five minutes of sustained concentration on one singular inanimate object, you have raised your level of awareness in frequency and vibration.

Flip-flopping back and forth is a thing of the past.

You are now in control of your thoughts.

You are not going to deny the existence of external circumstances but you will now choose not to get emotionally involved with them.


Carpe Momentum.
