Embracing the here and now

By Carlos Velazquez   -  10 June 2014

My friend Sarah gave me the book 'Conversations with God' by Neale Donald Walsch.

She said: “Forget the title; don’t be put off by it. Just read it and, when you finish it, let me know what you think."

She was right. It is irrelevant whether you care about religion or not because this book, despite its title, is not about religion. It's about learning to create your own existence. It is about exploring life here and now.

I was amazed by the book's clarity and cleverness. It made me stop, think and re-evaluate my priorities. I really liked this quote in particular: 

The point of life is not to get anywhere - it is to notice that you are, and have always been, already there. The point of life therefore is to create - who and what you are, and then to experience that.

So if you are a wanderer, like I'd say I am, you may want to give it a go.
