Adaptability: Living in the Present Moment

By Edited Apr 23, 2014 4 9

For as long as anyone can remember the human race has always wanted to figure out how to live in the present moment. In order to live in “the now,” we must first learn to live with changes associated with past experiences and future experiences to come. When it comes to selecting a lifestyle in the present moment there is 4 aspects to consider. These 4 aspects maybe used to define a personality with ease. These 4 attributes are called the 4Cs Method and they are Character, Creativity, Confidence and Contradictions.

Before I demonstrate each of these aspects allow me to help you recall the history for the 

Character, Creativity, Confidence and Contradictions
4Cs Method. If you take a quick peek at the Past Experiences of lifestyles you will notice that our civilization has always had a fascination for searching. Characters look for Creativity and Creativity answers our questions. Confidence is defined by our Contradictions, and most importantly our Contradictions help us question our Character. As you can see these 4Cs interact with each other like a cycle.

Let us fast forward into the future of these aspects and imagine yourself being the person you said you are today. Do you recognize your future self? Since I can’t tell if you said yes or no I’ll help you use the 4Cs Method to verify your future self. If you don’t feel you have a lot of confidence then consider finding out what are your contradictions. Everyone deals with self-deception in a unique way to reduce deception is to increase perception. Illusions must defeat illusions just like magic must defeat magic.

Now that you know the basics the rest of this information can be recalled at any time your heart desires. Knowledge is made to be shared and I hope this makes you wiser.

4. Contradiction – The two major contradictions that live within the human mind are Altruism and Egotism. In many other observations these two aspects may also be referred to as Qualitative and Quantitative. When these contradictions are balanced a Character can live in harmony with others with ease.

3. Confidence – Confidence occurs when a Character finds his/her own creative way of interacting with the world. In order to experience this aspect an individual is obligated to learn for the greater good of his or her environment. Let it be known that this aspect is more of a “practice” than an end result.

2. Creativity – Creativity is all about expression your thoughts. When a person is allowed to express the originality of his/her own thoughts miraculous things begin to happen. Creativity is often classified by its altruistic & egotistical point of view and the end goal is always to be shareable.

1. Character – This aspect is by far the most favored due to the fact that it is the end result of creativity, confidence and contradictions. This aspect showcases a ratio of reputation, recognition and acceptance. Without this aspect communication, business and networking will not function properly.

I really like the way you explain this. I have been reading alot about Buddhism and the Hindu religion, I've always been a "seeker" and never felt at home in any one religion, yet am not an Atheist, I think something is there. It's a hard concept to live in the moment, because we are always thinking about the future, or wondering if we should have done something different in the past. I like your perspective!

@JeanBakula: You are right to think that we are living in the future & the past! After all we all are living in the present moment and another word for present moment is "Fate." I like your perspective on not choosing one religion. I think many people feel the same way the only difference is that many of them don't know what is "religious tolerance." As for myself I am a Non-Conformist...I am also comfortable with the idea of reincarnation. (^_^)

When we "close" all of the accounts we have created against others (the past) and learn that we cannot foretell the future in any way, shape, or form, the only thing left is what is (the present moment).

In observation, the driving force behind most of mankind is an unconscious desire to seek pleasure (recognition, acceptance, and glory) and avoid all forms of discomfort on all levels. That includes alltruism (our ideals) and egotism ("I," "me," "my"), which at closer inspection turn out to be exactly the same side of the coin.

I like your observation. Remembering the Present Moment is a life long lesson by itself. After all our brains can only make sense of Cause & Effects. (Past & Future) (Remembering & Forgetting)

I have come to be a believer in reincarnation too. I began to post a piece I wrote on here, but I have been writing on another site and my blog, and I was unfamiliar with the new format. I have been told IB works better with Google Chrome? I would like to come back, just have a few loose ends to tie up in a series I am writing somewhere else. Reincarnation really makes sense to me now. It answers all those WHY? questions.
