I don’t know why everybody’s trying to get to Now since they could never get out of Now in the first place.
Have you noticed that it’s always Now?
I’ve never met anyone that was ever out of Now.
Isn’t your very trying to get into Now happening Now?
There’s nowhere to go!
Certainly there’s a lot of value to being present and not being stuck in psychological time, in the mental past or future. I get that.
The key to realize is that the Now is the most natural thing ever. In fact, it can never be not Now. Getting into the Now is not supposed to be some sort of challenge, a battle against the mind, though it may seem that way at first, when the “me”, the ego, is trying to insert itself into the Now moment.
Thinking does not pull you out of the Now. It just distracts you from the truth that you’re already in the Now.
You always will be.
Spirituality is so simple, yet the ego tends to complicate things. Why? That’s how it sustains its own existence. Over the years it’s gotten really, really, really good at it.
Spirituality is simply recognizing who you truly are, right here, right now. It’s being who you truly are, not who you think you are.
The Now moment is where you truly are. The mind is what thinks itself into past and future, though you can never actually go and get there.
You’re already in the Now. Consciously being in the Now becomes your natural state with the realization that you’re already here. Then the struggle starts to dissolve and our lives become that much easier!
