#OneWord Thursday: End Emotional Eating “NOW”
Question: Where are you?
Question: What time is it?
Emotional eating is rooted in the “unpresent.” If we could simply live in the moment, in the now, there would be no emotional eating. When feeding an emotional, whether it is a happy or unhappy emotion, it is a sign that you are in the “unpresent,” and out of sync with reality.
Chew on that as you read through these 11 NOW quotes that can help you to get in sync and be here now!
11 Quotes: End Emotional Eating, Be Here NOW!
Clearly, all fear has an element of resistance and a leaning away from the moment. Its dynamic is not unlike that of strong desire except that fear leans backward into the last safe moment while desire leans forward toward the next possibility of satisfaction. Each lacks presence. ~ Stephen Levine
I have one aim only: to impart a fraction of the meaning of the word now. ~ Frederick S. Perls
Some people live as though they are already dead. There are people moving around us who are consumed by their past; terrified of their future, and stuck in their anger and jealousy. They are not alive; they are just walking corpses ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
Now is the time to make good use of time.
Today is the day to begin a perfect day. ~ Sri Chinmoy

We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infinitesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future. We have no present. Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation. We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality. We confuse the world as talked about, described, and measured with the world, which actually is. We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas. ~ Alan Wilson Watts
Be Here Now. ~ Ram Dass
