Seize The Moment

By Rajgopal Nidamboor


Just think of what you are doing now — in the present-moment. Whatever your location, a beach, resort, holiday home, or work desk, you are browsing — this is your current purpose. It is only when you pause for a moment, look up and around, take a deep breath, or sip your favourite cuppa of coffee, that ‘it’ becomes your moment. It is a moment, which is nothing short of a gift — far removed from the stresses of everyday life. It is a fleeting moment, yes, but it can change your mood — from stress to happiness. It can, likewise, change your world — as you receive a pat on your back for a job well done.  

Every decision we make happens in the moment — of the moment and for the moment. Decisions are like waves in motion; they keep waltzing in and out. They may be right; they may be wrong. But, each decision you make is a new moment — in the present-moment. It is as fresh as the early morning dew. 

The paramount thing to do is to decide what you will do, right now. Because, this is the only decision you can, or will ever, make. Decisions matter in the moment, not after the moment. The same idea holds good for resolutions, which are at best good intentions. Every thinking individual believes in the moment — not just the next moment, or next wave. What happens ‘in the now’ is everything; because, we do not know ‘what is next.’ Besides, waiting for the next moment may not be a good idea. We may miss it, since it can emerge in a flash and disappear without a trace.
