Everything we experience is happening as it happens. There is no yesterday and there is no tomorrow. It is happening now and there is no way to avoid it. It is happening. I can use yesterday today and learn from it and the future will be affected by what I do now, but neither exist. Now exists becuase our minds think it does. It is cause for suffering to live in the then and the later. The future cannot exist for it hasn't happened and it won't. The only thing that is going to happen is now. In this sense, creation is now. Creation is the act of now. We have a hard time seeing this, because we want things and regret things, but they do not exist. They are a product of a mind that only exists because we think it does.
Please fkg kindly post your thoughts under education|science/philosophy.
I think it's time that religious folk hear this too. Reality is now. Reality is not religion and it is not desire, it is now. I hear music now and you read my words now. They are a result of now and are as intangible as water. It exists, but it only exists now. It does not exist in the imagination, though the imagination guides the understanding of it. It is a manifestation of observation and it will always be now.
Plus I post this in the zen forum, so I can't help but post it here as well.
I sometimes think it would be better if humans could live in the here and now more often. We do have regrets about the past and fears for the future. However, without the ability to plan for the future or learn from the past, humans would be unlikely to have developed in the ways we have.
Living for today is important within Religion and Philosophy forum.
Wail main stream Religions are stuck in living by ancient spiritual writing that can carry a few regrets, wail waiting for the magic moment to die for their extremely happiness in heaven, which may never come.
One time, a girl ask me wail I was building a sand sculpture, what was the best time in my entire life?
I said to her Right Now! because the best time and most beautiful was in this moment, I just carved a grand smile on her face.
That is the beauty of life, being now, Living now, doing now. I do not live my past and the next second is infinite in possibility.
What I enjoy most about you is seem to be serious thinking about solution and awareness
The illusion of reality is made up of all sorts of preconcieved notions. The neuro pathways of our brain and mind clash and we struggle to understand the why of things. It is simple to know how things work, it is near impossible to know why.
The thing is, can we really know reality? The Upanishads speaks of even a Supreme Reality. It says by fasting and by tranquilizing oneself, one can get there. I am not sure. Often the Kundalini wakes out of nothing.

It is proven that time stops when you are moving at the speed of light. Time as we know it on earth is a man made notion, for it is really a measurement of distance - a revolution around once. Therefore it would be relative to where you were and how fast you are moving and not at all a...

Many believers like to say that Atheists should prove that there is no God. Believers should know that existence has to be proved, not the non-existence. If a thing exists, it is possible to prove its existence. So believers should prove the existence of God if he exists. But if they want to do it,...

Why is it an acceptable answer for atheists to merely say "God didn't do it" when believers are expected to be held to a higher standard of proof when saying that God did do it?

I can understand the positives of putting your faith in such and such religion, which is why I do not think religion as a whole should be completely eradicated, however in this day and age I honestly wouldn't mind if it was.My question is this: why does religion NEED to exist? If you say "So...

What is reality? That is, what makes something real?For example: Is sound real to a deaf man? Are colors real to a blind man? Is the imaginary friend of a child any less real than God to a Catholic?
