How many of us are truly, Awakening to the Now?
Bringing the mind into focus on the individual moment at hand, and excepting the consequences as they play out.
Whether we want to admit it or not, we are truly a spirit housed in a body! Until one realizes that they are "spirit," they will continue "searching" to fill that "empty spot" with things that take them further from the CREATOR!
It's SAD! We (humans) are so money driven that we become too "busy" to "stop and smell the roses!" The Bible refers to it as "eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage" (Luke 17:27) as we do today, but "The Flood" came (Genesis 7:6) and so will Christ (Revelation 22:6-21)!
We don't care anything about "spiritual awareness," as long we are "satisfying the desires of our flesh!" We are as stated in I Corinthians 2:14 "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are FOOLISHNESS to him..." and as long as we have that attitude "Not many will "Truly Awaken to the Now!"
Thank you Norine,
I asked this question as a way to start blogging. I'm probably the furthest thing from a writer as you can get. Thing is, I started this path a little over a year ago, I've completely flipped script. Want to tell the world.
I would say I'm "the furthest thing from a writer" but I as you, "flipped the script" about 3 yrs ago & GOD guided me to HP to "tell the world!"
Follow me to learn the "truth" in GOD'S WORD!
I often ponder the concept of time. I look at " the now" less as a series of now moments, and more of a forever, a background to the passage of all those moments. If that makes any sense. The thing is, I would assume that the faster I move and the more multitasking I do, then the more I would get done in a certain amount of time. But it seems that I can accomplish more when I slow down; it seems that time slows down with me. Slowing is more peaceful than hurrying, so the consequences tend to be more peaceful. I try to always expect good things to play out, but in this kind of scenario, "trying" is more like not trying, it is more like "letting go." Life is good. Keep writing. Have a nice day.
Thank you Paul, what you have brought up in my opinion, is the level of mindfulness. I've noticed in my own situations, the more attention I place on the moment the more detailed it becomes. Then the thing or things and time seem to work together.
Heb 4:11 "Let us LABOR therefore to enter into THAT REST..." is the Scripture that comes to mind when Paul says "...it is more like "letting go!"
"Let go" and LET GOD!
