Are you a prisoner in a little room called today? This is quite a fascinating room; it has two locked doors and a large red button. One door is called yesterday, and the other one is called tomorrow. Are you a person who has an absolute fascination with these doors; are you forever trying to unlock them, instead of enjoying the present moment, which actually activates the large red button and puts you into the eternal now.

If you are a person who looks through the keyhole of yesterday, you will stimulate your memory and possibly have regrets about what you did or didn't do. This activity will close off the wonderful energy that is available to you in the present moment and you may begin to feel weighed down with guilt or anxiety. You can never unlock that door to the past; you can never retrieve those wasted hours; you cannot make the hands of a clock move backwards.

Remember your yesterdays create your today, and your today creates your tomorrows. Perhaps you are a person who worries about tomorrow. You cannot unlock the door of tomorrow, today. But because your today creates your tomorrow, live today to the fullest in the present moment regardless of adverse circumstances.

Perhaps when you wake up, your thoughts go immediately into tomorrow. All that energy meant for today is then lost, and you start your day with a depleted battery.

Consider for a moment that you have been given one hundred units of energy to use every day to live in the present moment and enjoy the eternal now. If you start off your day having regrets about what happened yesterday, allowing the energy to weigh you down, you may have already used up 30 units of energy. if your thoughts then go towards tomorrow and you worry about how that will pan out, to the point that you cannot even eat breakfast, you might have used up another 30 units of energy. That only leaves 40 units of energy left for today.

So, you become stuck in today because you don't have enough energy to complete your tasks, enjoy your children, or enjoy all the wonderful blessings life has to offer you in the present moment, because you never live in the present moment; you are either living in the past or in the future and you have forgotten you have that big red button full of energy that will give you many magical moments in the present.

When you arise, first thing in the morning, give thanks for being alive on this beautiful planet, and then ask: "I wonder what wonderful things are going to happen today?" Then stay in the moment, enjoying the sensation of a luxurious stretch before getting out of bed. When you take a shower, imagine the water cleansing not only your body, but cleansing the emotional and mental debris right out of your subtle body structure. If you find yourself slipping back into old mental habits, immediately nip them in the bud and come back into the present moment.

This is the first step on the road to self-mastery.

With all this in mind, don't be anxious or have regrets or feel guilty and so on, regardless of how dire your outer circumstances seem to be, because you will get stuck in today. At some level of your being, you created them for your learning and your soul growth. Remember to push that big red button, first thing. That big red button is your heart centre, and if you allow it to open, it will help you to heal, it will help you to repair your relationships, to enjoy and share quality time with your children - to become the magnificent human being you were always meant to be. No one else can do it for you.
