Do you remember the statement, “take time to smell the roses?” The act of taking the time to breath and simply Be? It has also been written in an untold number of books about the reasons for living in the “present moment.” However, have we really “allowed” ourselves to understand what it means to “live” in the present moment?
Our egos don’t like living in the present because our ego is always focused on living in the past or future. The ego will say I don’t have time to live in the “present” or focus on this now, and second I get bored if I am not “doing” something! There is so much stuff going on I don’t have any “time” to simply focus on “doing” nothing. However it is within the “nothingness” that we awaken to what really exists. If we never spend any time within the space of nothingness, we continue to live in denial and out of touch with “who we really are”.
For most people in current days when our ego becomes overwhelmed and wants a break we just fill the time with more mental programming and in most cases this involves a TV or movie. So I ask you how can we expect to be more balanced within ourselves if all we do is fill our spare time with more mental processing that involves something outside the Self? This is why the days seem to fly by and the things you wish you really had the time to do get passed by. The next thing you know another year or “life time” has passed! Yes, we may have been able to “do” a lot of things within this time period, but have we really integrated more knowledge of who “we” really are? Have we expanded our awareness of what “being” the frequency of love” really means? Do we consciously know in an expanded way who we collectively really are, instead of defining ourselves by “what we do.”
It is within the nothingness exists all that is real. Real for the reason it exists eternally beyond all beliefs or fears created by our egos. Within the nothingness there are no fears or beliefs because there is no ego! This space that exists beyond our ego is not a temporarily stimulated short term mental projection. This expanded dimensional level of your own consciousness “knows” it’s Self to a greater degree beyond your current physical life. It doesn’t have to believe it, it knows it! So what level of your “being” do you really want to get to know more of? The short term mind of the ego or infinite mind of your eternal I AM Self? The choice is always ours.
So let’s look at this on a collective level. If the majority of the people on Earth continually live their life based on the past or continually worrying and thinking about what will tomorrow bring. This means “our” collective consciousness which is reflected within our societies is living in a conscious state of constant duality fluctuation, which continually goes back and forth between the past and future and never really stays balanced within the present.
The 3D illusion is nothing but a continuous roller coaster ride of mental projected illusion. Many people these days are saying, my mind is to overloaded with what is going on in the world and in my life to think about Oneness, collective love, balance, and peace. It’s not possible for me to handle exploring all this right now. Therefore expanding Ones awareness beyond the 3D illusion to the changes that are currently taking place are continually getting put off. In the hope that there will be a day when “more” time will exist so they can focus and become balanced within themselves so they can eventually understand things. However for most this day will never come. It is the same in saying, I am not capable or not ready to handle this right now so the day never comes.
Time is an illusion. All exists within the present. So by letting go of the illusion you align yourself “with” the expanded reality of your own existence.
