MqDaily Meditation-The Power of Now
MqDaily Meditation Tip-The Moment of Now
By Innessa Ray
I had quite few of epiphany moments while reading Echart Tolle's books: The Power of Now and A New Earth.
He says: “When your attention moves into the Now, there is an alertness. It is as if you were waking up from a dream, the dream of thought, the dream of past and future. Such clarity, such simplicity. No room for problem-making. Just this moment as it is.” ~Eckhart Tolle
Those moments might be rare when they come in their own, but I found that when we are really present, observant, quiet, things around and within become animated. It's like they have their own story to tell but they are also part of you. Matter and non-matter mix in strange ways. Think about things on quantum level, like the double slit experiment. The particle or the wave, or both simultaneously? We might know a lot about the mechanics of the Universe and our own existence on biological level, but how do we fit that into our conscious self? Check out this article on quantum works that elaborates on quantum physics and human mind. http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20170215-the-strange-link-between-the-human-mind-and-quantum-physics
Sometimes the sunset is just a sunset, however beautiful it is. When we notice that everything we see and feel somehow not taking place outside of us but is an essential part of our own existence, we realize that there is no difference between a creator and a creation. Being fully and totally immersed in our immediate activity is an art in itself. Meditation is that art that can be utilized for this very purpose. Being in the present moment sets us free from all the suffering and anxiety that resistance and need to control the outcomes, produce. Here is a practical take on meditation by E. Tolle https://youtu.be/KsEfKk8trcc if you like to expand on your daily practice.
Daily Meditation Tip:
*Meditation should be viewed as a simple practice to master our mind, because the mind is our tool to use and not let it use us. We don't meditate to get to a destination point, because there is none. It's all here within and not without. Only living in the moment with acceptance of what is, letting go of resistance, judgment, and quitting to control the outcomes--would set as free. Be Here Now.
