Easier said than done though.
I’m sure you’ve heard it before: Live in the NOW. That is it. We have learned that things that get more attention, like cars, furniture, flowers, seem to last longer. Our friends Mike & Susan have conducted tests, where they took leaves, put one away somewhere, and had one under their constant attention (not physical care, but prayer and focus) and that one lasted longer. I think they said it was still alive. I have noticed this phenomenon myself. Anyway when that was confirmed with me, I was curious, I wondered how that would apply to everything else we’ve learned about attention and time.
I’ve been reading this awesome book, “The Tao of Now” by Josh Baran. You should definitely check this book out. It is helping me to learn how to live in the Now. It’s not that easy, but when it can be achieved, it is joyful. You can always tell you are not in the now if you’re overwhelmed. People who have grudges (even riteous ones) have terrible health problems. That’s because they dwell in the past. A place that doesn’t exist. That’s right it doesn’t. The future doesn’t either. It’s your imagination of what you think the next now will be.
So anyway I think that the reason people age is because it’s nearly impossible to spend 100% of the time in the now, but if you practice, you would live a lot longer. You know why we can never be exactly in the now? Our minds are only remembering what now is. What I mean is (something we’ve learned through remote viewing) reality is just lots and lots of sensory input. Our mind puts it all together and makes an image that we can understand. It also discards a large percentage of the reality around us.
This whole metaphysics thing has bothered us, because it means it’s a reality “separate” from us. What is really happening, is that WE are separate from reality. Everything is just one whole universe, and we take in what we can of it with our human brain and make up something we can all agree on. So, God and everything is all right around us, most of us are just not tuned in. It’s in the Bible, Jesus said “You search for God through heaven and earth, but you don’t know the one who is right before your eyes, because you don’t know to search into this very moment.”
Well that’s all I can say for now, thanks for listening! Please leave a comment or two!
