THE ART OF NOW!
Six Steps to Living in the Moment!
We live in the age of distraction. Yet one of life’s sharpest paradoxes is that your brightest future hinges on your ability to pay attention to the present.
A friend was walking in the desert when he found the telephone to God. The setting was Burning Man, an electronic arts and music festival for which 50,000 people descend on Black Rock City, Nevada, for eight days of “radical self-expression”- – – dancing, socializing, meditating, and debauchery. – – A phone booth in the middle of the desert with a sign that said “Talk to God” was a surreal sight even at Burning Man. The idea was that you picked up the phone, and God – – – or someone claiming to be God – – – would be at the other end to ease your pain. – – – So, when God came on the line asking how he could help, my friend was ready. “How can I live more in the moment?” he asked. Too often, he felt, the beautiful moments of his life were drowned out by a cacophony of self-consciousness and anxiety. What could he do to hush the buzzing of his mind? – – – “Breathe,” replied a soothing male voice. My friend flinched at the tired new-age mantra, then reminded himself to keep an open mind. When God talks, you listen. – – – “Whenever you feel anxious about your future or your past, just breathe,” continued God. “Try it with me a few times right now. Breathe in… breath out.” And despite himself, my friend began to relax. – – – You Are Not Your Thoughts life unfolds in the present. But so often, we let the present slip away, allowing time to rush past unobserved and unseized, and squandering the precious seconds of our lives as we worry about the future and ruminate about what’s past. “We are living in a world that contributes in a major way to mental fragmentation, disintegration, distraction, decoherence,” says Buddhist scholar B. Alan Wallace. We’re always doing something, and we allow little time to practice stillness and calm. This is where we should get into the habit of defragging our unconscious mind, you may say how do we do that it is very simple to tune into the universe by giving your thinking a sabbath rest or spiritual rest. You may say how do you do that go to bed believing you are in tuned to the Universal Creator and expect to receive through your receiver or tuner. Yes, your soul never sleeps it is always awake to epiphanies. The defragging of your soul happens when you are seeping.
Epiphanies are relatively rare occurrences and generally follow a process of significant thought about a problem. Often, they are triggered by a new and key piece of information, but importantly, a depth of prior knowledge is required to allow the leap of understanding. Famous epiphanies include Archimedes’ discovery of a method to determine the density of an object (“Eureka!”) and Isaac Newton’s realization that a falling apple and the orbiting moon are both pulled by the same force.
Now, this dictionary says these are rare occasions I disagree because we can get them on demand yes, we have lost the art of our six sense or wisdom because religion discourages it with their perverted dogma and teaching a false doctrine lean not on your own understanding. Yet the scripture that negates that is the spirit will lead you into all truths. The other scripture is that weaned you off of the milk of the word. Learned to digest the meat. Now religious organization wants you on the milk because they are in the business of keeping you subjected to they are the answer to all your problems. They want to keep you in a box yes so you will fill their coffers with shekels. That is not scriptural Paul said where you should be teachers you are still in the need of being taught again.
When we’re at work, we fantasize about being on vacation; on vacation, we worry about the work piling up on our desks. We dwell on intrusive memories of the past or fret about what may or may not happen in the future. We don’t appreciate the living present because of our “monkey minds,” as Buddhists call them, vault from thought to thought like monkeys swinging from tree to tree.
Most of us don’t undertake our thoughts in awareness. Rather, our thoughts control us. “Ordinary thoughts course through our mind like a deafening waterfall,” writes Jon Kabat-Zinn, the biomedical scientist who introduced meditation into mainstream medicine. In order to feel more in control of our minds and our lives, to find the sense of balance that eludes us, we need to step out of this current, to pause, and, as Kabat-Zinn puts it, to “rest in stillness—to stop doing and focus on just being.” Yet Paul said bring every thought into captivity and this means that we learn the ones that are relevant to us alone and those that our character will not allow are deleted. Two people can listen to the same speaker and walk away with a different perspective and apply the information differently. This is because the Soul defrags it and compartmentalizes it to suit its agenda. We are all born with a purpose or agenda which comes with us at birth
We need to live more in the moment. Living in the moment—also called mindfulness—is a state of active, open, intentional attention on the present. When you become mindful, you realize that you are not your thoughts; you become an observer of your thoughts from moment to moment without judging them. Mindfulness involves being with your thoughts as they are, neither grasping at them nor pushing them away. You allow what I call the defragmentation to take place in your unconscious mind. When you allow this compartmental organization to take hold of your thinking. I have seen that you received the answer by epiphanies and all coordinated for you almost in scenarios or story flow. Now as an author I find that I can type for hours sometimes and my information is handed to me in a thinking mode. I very seldom edit out pieces but am given the inspired taught on how to make it fit the article or the chapter in a book.
Instead of letting your life go by without living it, you awaken to experience. Now, this cultivates a nonjudgmental awareness of the present bestows a host of benefits. Mindfulness reduces stress, boosts immune functioning, reduces chronic pain, lowers blood pressure, and helps patients cope with cancer. By alleviating stress, spending a few minutes a day actively focusing on living in the moment reduces the risk of heart disease. Mindfulness may even slow the progression of HIV.
When you allow yourself to think is the time when as an author I come up with my better epiphanies. I can sit at a typewriter or keyboard and come up with scenarios that have been thoroughly organized in my unconscious mind and they flow out to the keyboard and I put them down. Now I will write until I run out of material. Now my next time I will sit at this write-up and reread it and I am given extra inspired thinking to add to the article or paragraph. I never worry about writer’s block I just go with the flow believing that I will get what I need for the article.
Now many times I am in bed and I cannot sleep because my mind is working overtime on a subject and I get up and sit at the keyboard and start typing what I was thinking on and everything flows out of my conscious mind totally organized and very up-to-date. Now in this instant, I came to the keyboard and found I had been reading an old article and was given a paragraph to add to it right on the spot I started typing and have added three short paragraphs. Now I will read the rest of the article and see if more is given to me. As it says when God talks you listen epiphanies are just that God talking to you. They are the inspired imparted thinking of God. This is the tuning in of your receiver your soul to God. Now I have another explanation which is you are in tuned to the Universal Life Source, or the Holy Spirit Life of the great Creator.
You become a more mindful person or people and happier, more exuberant, more empathetic, and more secure. You have higher self-esteem and are more accepting of your own weaknesses. Anchoring awareness in the here and now reduces the kinds of impulsivity and reactivity that underlie depression, binge eating, and attention problems. Mindful people can hear negative feedback without feeling threatened. They fight less with their romantic partners and are more accommodating and less defensive. As a result, mindful couples have more satisfying relationships.
Hey, I am in a position to say that if you live in the now and listen for Epiphanies that is the great Creator speaking to you. They can be created on demand. Many very successful people call it their gut feelings or their inspired thoughts. We are sent here with our souls having an agenda. Now it is only through inspired thoughts that you can fulfill your soul agenda. The only reason more people do not enjoy these Epiphanies is that Religion wants to keep you in a box. Now government would like to do the same like we cannot use these words you know the one’s Global Warming. You all know the others.
