Hello my fellow “ordinary guru” seeking tribe members. If you’re to be aware of those many “everyday gurus” that drop by to offer you an insight or tip for better living, you must remain awake to the moment. Melanie addresses this question of time (see below).
Hi Mr. White,
I could use some unassuming guru advice. I know you don’t think you are a special guru, so I turn to you as an everyday guru with my question. What does it mean to “live in the now”? I hear people say that often, but I am not sure what it really means. I love your answers. They are simple. That’s what makes them work for me.
Thank you and blessings to you, Melanie
This present moment- right NOW – is it. There is nothing else. Reality is happening right this instant, and right this instant and right this instant (right NOW and right NOW and right NOW). What you’re thinking and what you’re feeling and what you’re doing right NOW – that’s it. That’s your life, right there in that moment.
You cannot get lost in the past. You may think about the past, and you may think about it so intensely that it seems that you are lost in it. However, the truth is that you are thinking about it right NOW. And if you stopped thinking about it right NOW, your past would cease to exist for you.
It’s the same with the future. You may seem to get lost in your imaginings of how you want your future to be, but all of that imagining is happening right NOW. The moment you stop imagining about your future right NOW, your future ceases to exist.
Yesterday and tomorrow only exist in this moment because you are remembering the past or imagining the future in this moment right NOW. Confine yourself to right NOW – that’s where your power lies, Melanie. Choose to live fully right NOW and you will feel fully alive! And when you feel fully alive, you are omnipotent. Really!
I hope that helps.
Blessings back to you, Melanie … Rob
What’s this got to do with you? There is incredible significance in living in the moment. Have you given it a try lately? Everything that happens to you happens right NOW. If you want to change things, you must work to change it right NOW.
Blessings & love to all of you, Rob
PS The lopping off of yesterday and tomorrow leaves you with incredible power right NOW.
