Now (The Present Moment)
Linear time is not real ~ it is a construct that only exists in The Illusion or the lowest vibrational levels or dimensions. In Reality, every moment exists in the Present Moment of Now and there is no objective measurement of time. Now is Eternal and All There Is.
Being in The Present Moment of Now is key to achieving higher states of Awareness and Consciousness and ultimately, Serenity, because you can’t be grounded, centered, or balanced if you are not focused on the present. The important thing to understand about Now when it comes to your spiritual journey is this: you must be Present in the Moment of Now as much as possible to maintain a high vibrational state. This means your attention is completely focused on the present moment ~ not the future and not the past.
This is not to say that you can’t make plans for the future, like lunch dates or work meetings. While Humanity still exists where it seems to exist now, we continue to use clocks and calendars as frameworks to structure our lives and interact with one another. It’s okay to make plans for the future. However, we do not want to worry about what might happen or have expectations of what will happen in the future. Worrying never helped anything in the history of Creation, EVER. And, expectations are attachments to possible outcomes. Forming attachments and having expectations is limiting. It puts us in new boxes rather then allowing us to be free of boxes. It means that we are not open to all possibilities and we must be open to all possibilities to allow for expansion and reaching higher levels of Consciousness.
Many of you probably remember the fallout that happened in the Lightworker Community after 12/12/12 and 12/21/12. A lot of people had become attached to the idea that certain things were going to happen on those dates. Well, a lot of things did happen and everything did change, but not in the way that a lot of people expected and therefore they were disappointed. Morale was low and the air was thick with devastation. Ironically, the vibration reverberating throughout the Lightworker Community was pretty low at a time when all the energies supporting us were high. People were so disappointed that they did not get what they thought they wanted that they could not appreciate the changes and blessings that could have been seen and felt all around them.
I’m sure you can think of other examples where forming attachments to outcomes has been limiting and led to disappointment. The best thing to do is to be open and accepting ~ embrace the idea that anything can happen and that you can accept and handle anything that happens. The only thing we can and should expect is that whatever happens will be for the Highest Good of All. No matter what it looks like, whatever happens will indeed be for the Highest Good of All. This is the way the Divine Plan works and is working now.
A quick note about manifesting here ~ yes, we should continue to practice our manifestation and co-creation skills. However, we should not become attached to outcomes when it comes to manifesting. This is no different than anything else when it comes to thinking about the future ~ whatever manifests will be for the Highest Good of All, including yourself.
Being in the Present Moment also does not mean you can’t revisit or recollect your past. It’s fun to recall pleasant memories or joyful experiences. Sometimes it’s also necessary to deal with memories and past experiences so that they can be healed and released. Everybody on this spiritual journey has to do that ~ deal with past issues and release them. However, we don’t want to get stuck in the past. This can lead to obsessive thinking and other dysfunctional thought patterns as well as lower vibrational emotional states and behaviors like guilt and blaming others. When uncomfortable thoughts or feelings from the past pop up, deal with them and let them go. Remember, assistance is always available to you if you are struggling with issues from the past ~ all you have to do is ask.
Let go, let go, let go. Let go in every moment and you will find yourself back in the Present where you belong.
