Escape From Fears and Yearnings by Living in the Now
Date:7/10/2009

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., July 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Many people struggle with two main things in life: fear and yearning. The fear can come from bad experiences in the past that they fear will return, or good things in their life that they are afraid of losing. The yearning comes from pleasurable experiences in the past that ignite people's desire for more. Unfortunately, what is missing as people bounce back and forth between these relentless fears and insatiable desires is the wonders and pleasures of the present moments that are passing them by.

When people get stuck in their fears and yearnings, they suffer. But is this suffering inevitable? Dr. Robert Puff, author of the free e-books/podcasts "Living a Peaceful Life" and "Meditation for Health and Happiness" says, "No. The human suffering ends when we learn to be 100% present with what is happening now, and lose our mental chatter of 'I want this' or 'I don't want that.'"

Of course, this is easier said than done. So what Dr. Puff recommends is that people become the observer of their internal thoughts, which constantly create the fears and desires. If we try to suppress our desires or run from our fears, they get louder. Instead, if we simply witness our fears and desires as they arise and then get back to the now, our mind-chatter gets quieter and quieter. Then the beauty and stillness of the present moments takes us to places beyond our imagination.

"Bliss or extreme peacefulness best describes the feeling of living in the now," Dr. Puff says. The goal is to work towards quieting the relentless fears and desires that ravage us throughout our lives. Living in the present moment is a great way to learn how to live a more peaceful life.

Dr. Robert Puff has given over a thousand media interviews, including magazines, online magazines, TV and radio talk shows. As a Newport Beach psychologist, business consultant and holistic health expert, he has been helping individuals and businesses for over 20 years.
