The Now

SpaceMost people confuse the Now with what happens in the Now, but that’s not what it is.

The Now is deeper than what happens in it.

It is the space in which it happens.

So do not confuse the content of this moment with the Now.

The Now is deeper than any content that arises in it.

When you step into the Now, you step out of the content of your mind.

The incessant stream of thinking slows down.

Thoughts do not absorb all your attention anymore, don’t draw you in totally.

Gaps arise in between thoughts – spaciousness, stillness.

You begin to realize how much vaster and deeper you are than your thoughts.

    Thanks for this thought. We can never be reminded enough of the power that comes from living in the Now and the gift of the present moment.

  2. It’s a wonder how we can awaken to these truths and then fall back asleep; this cycle – a reminder reflected back. Thank you.
