Living in the Now: Your Key to Happiness

Happy Day Beloved!

Today I want to share with you a message about using your gifts to live your best and most fulfilled life and learning to take where you are right now in this moment and propel yourself into a joyous and happy space. Perhaps you yearn for it, but may not quite know how to reach it. So I want to share some key points to guide you along the way.

In the book, Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, he writes:  “All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present.”  He writes continues to explain that “Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry - all forms of fear - are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of nonforgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.”

To the beautiful souls reading this message, the way people are conditioned to move and flow in this dimension is by marking time. When a person marks time, they occupy themselves and engage in sometimes idle, meaningless pursuits, and activities while waiting on some phenomenal or great event to take place. The thought process, the activities, the focus are all on the future. It gives them hope because of the offer of some promise of something to come down the road. Yet, if a person becomes disenfranchised and loses hope in the future or start to doubt what is to come, they start looking to the past and what was in their life before. The past is something that they can identify with. It’s what they know, what is comfortable.
The way of the world is to move people along in a controlled way to better fit into what has been characterized as the “rat race.” If that fails, something is inevitably wrong and they must look to their past to correct matters or resolve the unresolved issues of their past. It is all about time. Be at work at this time. Your doctor’s appointment is at this time. Let’s have coffee at this time. They are usually not encouraged to look to Now.

I understand that in some respects the factor of “time” in this dimension is necessary. It is useful I can imagine because so many people have lost their way. They have become mindless beings, getting shuffled about by a system that governs them by way of time. The rod for the world is time.

What many people have not yet realized, because they will, is that time is an illusion. Time is a false idea and belief. It is deceptive in both appearance and impression and requires a deeper interpretation by the senses. Yet, when you move a person away from NOW, you inevitably move them away from using the power of their senses, and it is the profound awareness of your physical senses which is a pathway to activating your spiritual senses. The two are connected. If people were left to BE themselves and flow in the divine, the world could see a better place.

However, the chaos of the world plays on the ego and causes many to lose balance as a result of trying to keep up with time. They speed through life and situations because they don’t want to waste time or feel they have wasted too much time already. Everything in today’s society seems to be instantaneous. Some become stagnant, stale, and lose hope because they feel that there is just not enough time left, so they procrastinate and spend time idly doing very little. Both states of mind are the accumulation of negativity resulting from the marking of time. As Tolle states, it is the “accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present.” More plainly stated, it is living in the past or the future, while denying the present.

In the metaphysical realm or reality, the Rod is not time, but rather it is spiritual power - Transcendence, which is well beyond the limits of time. With time there is a beginning and an ending. The spiritual power of transcendence is ever present, always, forever, eternal. It is always now. There are no limits of time.

When the Biblical text says in Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

It is saying that everything you expect and/or desire is already present in your life. The essence of it already exists; you just don’t see it yet because you have not elevated your mind. It is the ascension of your mind that allows you to see those things that are not seen. They are not seen because of being blinded by time. When you remove the factor of time and flow in the power of the spirit… the power of now, you will see that which you hoped for. It is there and has always been there.

So NOW FAITH is the PRESENT ASSENT OF YOUR MIND, it is the SUBSTANCE or the ESSENCE of the matter or material you HOPE for or EXPECT/DESIRE. It is the EVIDENCE or CLEAR SHOWING of the matter or material that prior to your ascension were not seen.

Let me give you an example. Have you ever experienced going to a place routinely, and every day or on a regular basis you go to the place. You see the same old things. However, one day, you go to that place and suddenly you notice this beautiful painting on the wall. You are intrigued by it and it caught your attention. So you ask the receptionist, wow when did you get this painting, it’s beautiful?  So she turns and tells you, it has always been there. You are amazed because for whatever reason, you never noticed it before, but this day you saw it, whereas before you didn’t see it. That is the power of now and the ascension of your mind.

As you become more and more awakened and come out of the “rat race,” meaning when you come out of the “endless, self-defeating, or pointless pursuit” you become more perceptive to what’s around you. The things are not new; they may be new to you because you have not seen them before because of the frequency of your vibration. You did not see them because you were still stuck in a time capsule.

When you engage in endless, self-defeating, or pointless pursuits, the world’s system keeps you running round and round or looking forward and back. They put you in a daze and unfortunately  you miss the most crucial space in your life, that space where miracles are happening constantly right before your eyes. They wave at you like a person that you know riding by who waves at you, but you don’t wave back because you don’t see them. You don’t see them because you are somewhere else. You are not present in your mind.

So beloved and beautiful souls, everything is now. Your gift is your rod. It is your spiritual power, and it is timeless. However unless you are able to discern and develop the sensitivity to spirit, or what some refer to as Holy Spirit, you will not be able to progress in the use of your gifts and callings.

You’ve been called to now! You are being called to the present! So don’t continue to wait on living your life. Wake up and live your best and most fulfilled life now. Take where you are right now in this moment and use your gifts. Be in a space of joy and happiness. Be now. Exist in the present. In the now. If you want to know where to start? Start here and now.

If you ask how do you get started? I’ll leave you with Tolle’s words from the Power of Now. . .  “If you get the inside right, the outside will fall into place. Primary reality is within; secondary reality without.”

Thank you for reading these words. Peace, Love, and Light. Be blessed and by way the way, welcome home.
