The perfection of each moment is in your ability to change your mind in that moment taking a right turn towards that perfection and away from the chaos of negativity. The best way to determine where you are in mind is to pay attention to what you have been thinking about perhaps over an hours time or even throughout the course of the day. In this way you may determine the whether your focus is awareness or is the result of an unconscious reaction that is leading into more and more chaotic thinking. Chaotic thinking is characterized by pattern loops that keep popping up within sapping you of your energy and in effect keeping you from moving on.
The way to move on is to actively choose the thoughts you want to focus upon. In this way your thoughts have the imprimatur of your focused awareness and you can be sure that their end destination is somewhere you have chosen to be. Think about like a series of cars on a track that go endlessly by. The moment you hop in you are either determining the direction that this particular car will take or you are taken on a haphazard ride to who knows where giving up your ability to choose in that moment.
Once you have determined your state of mind then it is up to you to either promote this state of mind by adding thoughts that improve your momentum or you can change your mind or thoughts to perfect that moment of realization that you want to keep ongoing to reach your intended destination.
It is another kind of thinking that views consciousness as a place to be and a destination to journey towards, however it is precisely this kind of thinking that does indeed produce positive results.
The watchword here is awareness. Awareness occurs every time you are conscious of your thinking and taking this one step further it is every time you can change your thoughts to be what you would like them to be. There is really no trick to this other than paying attention and then having the will or focus to move your thoughts as determined by your hearts desire. It is therefore awareness that determines how you may be successful in perfecting each moment. B"H.
