The present moment captured….
“If it is the quality of your consciousness at this moment that determines the future, then what is it that determines the quality of your consciousness? Your degree of presence. So the only place where true change can occur and where the past can be dissolved is the Now.
All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present. Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry – all forms of fear – are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of non-forgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.
Most people find it difficult to believe that a state of consciousness totally free of all negativity is possible. And yet this is the liberated state to which all spiritual teachings point. It is the promise of salvation, not in an illusory future but right here and now.”
Let’s take this child who projects the utmost love for his mother.. and now in front of the world for the first time without his mother to be in front of him… His energy and his soul comes through in the strongest vibrant painful way, he feels lost and feels the unintentional abandonment, fear, sorrow… Yet when in the present moment he is embraced with his mother… she clearly makes him present to feel her and to know she is always with him… I cried the moment I saw him grab his jaw from the pain he was inflicted into.. projecting a soul in his voice that you truly felt.. you don’t think about it, you truly feel it as though it were your own.
When he finally feels the NOW he totally nails it. His love comes though, even the pain in his soul has love within it. He found this in the moment.. He didn’t think about it. He achieved it and made himself present in the feeling of love!
Make the Now the reason for anything it doesn’t require a reason.. nothing in your past can contain you, nothing in your future will be waiting. For what you give in the now dictates it all. It is the only place you can place love inside of anything!
