The Eternal Now
The eternal Now is a concept – or better a reality, that our ego cannot grasp at all. The ego lives only in the past and tries to convince us of future events, created from past experiences.
But the past is gone. If part of it is still with us, then only because we hold it tight.
Are we afraid of losing something important? Are we afraid, we cannot live without our past?
Many of us think, that the past has made us to what we are now. That’s somehow true. But only those past events and teachings we wanted to accept and became our „pattern of being“ – our belief system of what we seem to be.
We are neither of this.
To stick to the past is one of the reasons, why we are unhappy. We remember, we were unhappy then and we have ideas how to do it better. We were also happy at times, but repetition does often lead to different outcomes.
We have to be new – every second.
We have to be innocent – with each new breath.
We have to be curious – no matter how used we are to a situation.
And we can be positive. Because the past is gone, the future but imagined.
Be here now – and laugh!
