“Originality consists in returning to the origin.” —Antoni Gaudi
“Now is a concept whose time has come.” —Nina Wilkins
In the now your presence can well up and you can own what you have won– your true beingness from which everything springs.
You have won that very unique present, you.
If you don’t experience that precious present of your Divine self you are covered over by time, as Eckhart Tolle teaches us. You are thinking about past or future.
Over the ages spiritual teachers of many denominations or philosophies have taught us about being in the present. Master Jesus taught us to pray, “Give us this day.”
Joel Goldsmith, “The Infinite Way,” has taught us to practice the presence which wells up in the now.
Monks chant “Om na ma shiva ya” to focus their spirit to be aligned with the Divine Now.
Meditation allows for the quieting of the mind, and the Presence within comes to light with joy and peace, now.
Walking slowly and quietly in nature brings you to the Now with the all, Oneness. Listening and watching brings you to this level of consciousness when you are present.
Angels sing praises to the Divine constantly. No room for anything but gratitude.
In Nature, the tiniest flower seed grows in the dark ever so slowly pushing through the heavy dark earth, moment by moment, Now.
If you would like to experience this level of consciousness, The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle is the best guide I can imagine– truly uplifting and transformative. Also, his books Stillness Speaks and A New Earth will point you in the direction of experiencing your Being within.
A fun synchronicity for me is one of the accolades given to The Power of Now. “The most important book in a spiritual life written in the last decade.” —Thunderbird Bookshop, Carmel, California. This was one of my favorite spots to go in the 1980s and 90s, though it closed I believe in 2002.
From the first page of The Power of Now:
“You are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold. That is how important you are!” —Eckhart Tolle
