Live your present moment instead of worrying about future

A better future always remains in the planning of people but they never give importance to their current moment and when they realise, it becomes too late for them to get back those moments they lost for finding a better future.

The pursuits of luxurious life have become the main objective of a layman and he ignores everything for this materialistic approach.

Everyone keeps himself busy in making his future better but never satisfies with what he has got and always ignores his present.

His future, which is unpredictable, swallows his present but he carries on and at the end of his life, he realises that he has wasted his entire life in vain pursuits.

No one pays heed to those pleasures which are in his access at the moment. He continued ignoring all pleasures of his present hour and remains worried about his future, which is quite uncertain.

In the modern age, life has become very fast as nobody finds the time to think over what he is at the moment and what pleasures he has in his possession without even noticing them.

He always tries to attain something which is bigger from that thing which he has at the moment.

Lack of satisfaction for what a man is at the moment is the major element which creates a mess in his life and forces him to follow all those things which are beyond his reach at the moment.

A man always remains in search of better and better things to make his life comfortable. But ironically, he never finds time to enjoy what he gains as he constantly changes his goals to gain something more beneficial, something much better.

The ongoing fast and modern age has turned a man into a materialistic being, who always thinks about how to earn more money, more resources and more power and imagines that all these luxuries of life will provide him pleasure.

However, he never thinks that his unending greed will never let him satisfied with what he gains and he will force him to get something more enticing.

He never get tired with the greed of getting more and more and remains busy in this pursuit without thinking that life is limited and he has to die one day so live the present moment without having stress and fears of future.

A renowned personality, Sheikh Saadi, expressed his views about these hollow pursuits in a beautiful way by saying that, “To make money we lose our health and then to restore our health we lose our money. We live as if we are never going to die and we die
as if we never lived.”

The real happiness is something more valuable which comes through the satisfaction with what a man has at the present moment and not in what he will get in future.
