Now, Now, Now

,

Tell me, when do you read this book? …. when do you turn the pages? …. when do you think about what you just read (past)? …. when do you think about dinner (future)? …. NOW, NOW, NOW!

The end of suffering is realisation of who you truly are. You are not just a mortal frame here today and gone tomorrow. You are the Eternal Child. You are the Divine Awareness of all that appears in this space-time world. ‘Now’ is not just a dead concept squashed between the turkey sandwich of past and future. Absolutely not! Now IS the Living Presence of God. Everything that has ever been and ever will be – dinosaurs, galaxies, next door Nelly and your favourite coffee – arises in and AS this Divine Presence. This is the Eternal Life Jesus spoke of.

This doesn’t mean however, we walk around all high and mighty saying all is an illusion. How many spiritual folks have professed the illusionary nature of time before actually living as God’s Self-Awareness? Just because time is an illusion doesn’t mean we throw the world away like Tuesday’s garbage. How many non-dual schools declare, ‘the world is a dream’, ‘the physical world doesn’t exist’ and ‘transcend this world to be free’. Those statements may be grand when you sit with your ‘absolutey’ friends but tell me how helpful are they when you stare in the mirror and still see an ageing body full of lump and frump?

We don’t just sweep ‘space and time’ under the rug, as if it never existed. Linear time is to be understood not denied. As my friend William Samuel said, ‘this world of form (the external) is to delineate our formless Identity’. How would we know our true nature is timeless without the appearance of time? How would we know it is always Now without the belief of a past and future? How would we know we are the Mind of God without first being the mind of mortal?

We get off our spiritual high horse and come back down to this world of space and time. We shout Hallelujah once again. We don’t stay in the clouds of our Absolutey Metaphysical arrogance and we don’t stay in the dirt as a pseudo ego-identity full of trouble and woe. We rest at the place between. This is the Child way’s. As Jesus said, “to be in the world but not of the world” – this is the Holy Balance.

The appearance of time is used to our advantage as we tell our Selfhood about their TIMELESS identity. We don’t just sit philosophising about this – we get GOING! Whilst this body appears bound in space and time we use it to tell others of their Divine Heritage. We don’t stop till we drop (dead). This is the great secret. The Holy Knowing. Just like Jesus did, we think with the Mind of Holy Spirit (subjective) but we give with the hand of flesh (objective). This is LOVE, my friends.

And if this is all too many words for you, as it is for me, then just go and watch a falling leaf or listen to the song of the river. The greatest secrets are always baffling to the intellect and easily understood by the heart. For Truth is simple and gentle.

So tell me, does nature toss and turn about its seasonal past and unknown future? Or does it simply BE? What does a tree know about its shedding past or budding future? …is it not just always rooted in the PRESENT MOMENT?
… therein lies its beauty.

May you discover your beauty….Now!
