If you’re like me, then probably not enough!
But it’s possible to do it quickly and easily. And you’ll come away with a new sense of freedom and possibility.
This Very Moment
Even though the now is eternal, everlasting, with no beginning or end, as perceptive human beings we perceive the eternal now as a “moment”.
Well, what if this moment — this very moment … right now — held everything in complete wholeness, with no need for a past or a future?
“The moment is not in time and not in space. Go into the moment, and that’s where you can meet God, meet the One.” ~ Ram Dass
And what if your existence and all you’re experiencing in this moment were completely independent of your past or future?
In a future post, I’ll elaborate on how that is, indeed, the case. You’ll see how your existence in any given moment is separated in an important sense from your existence in the previous or next moment (as you perceive it).
The independence of this one moment is one aspect of the broader idea of being in the now, and is an element of the “state of magic and miracles” which is accessed as part of a Holographic Emergence™ session.
As you let your thoughts drop away, you’ll notice that without mind, what we experience as time drops away as well.
The Freedom of the Moment
What if this moment itself, and your experience of yourself, is not determined or limited by the previous moment at all?
What if it also does not determine or limit you in any particular next moment?
In other words, what if continuity of things and processes in our 3-D world is just an assumption we make, and then continue to empower and manifest because of our belief in it?
Imagine the possibilities if we weren’t hemmed in by past or future!
Imagine if we were all new, now! (And now … and now!)
3 Steps to Being in the Moment
Right now, you can experience yourself as new; as independent of any past or future.
Here’s an exercise you can do that’s very freeing. (There’s also a 5-minute guided audio version of it that you can listen to or download here: Moment Exercise.)
It can help you begin to be aware of (and then break out of) some of your unconscious assumptions about what must be.
1. Close your eyes.
2. Experience yourself right here, right now, and that’s it. You are not involved in an activity, experiencing a certain mood, in a certain place or anything. You’re just here, right now, and only this instant exists. Can you get that sense?
3. Realize that no particular “next moment” is inevitable. There is nothing else attached to here and now.
Notice, too, how conditions or even situations can not exist in this moment because by definition they both require continuity.
Can you feel the freedom and possibility in that?
‘Til next time!
