Practice Eternal Now - That is our practice....


Once you have decided to make the present moment your friend, it is up to you to make the first move. Become friendly toward it, welcome it no matter in what disguise it comes, and soon you will see the results. Life becomes friendly towards you: people become helpful, circumstances cooperative. One decision changes your whole reality. But that one decision you have to make again and again and again - until it becomes natural to live in such a way. - Eckhart Tolle

I regularly visit a blog for quite a while. The title of the blog is 'Now is Wow Too'.

In a strict sense nothing is present. it is immediate past and the past controls the present and the present controls the future and again future will become past and so on. If we consider it as an infinite chain then if we try to understand one link of that whole chain then obviously we will know the whole series because it is actually a repetition of one link. Past->Present->Future->Past->Present....

Everything whatever we does will come back to us with compound interest in very future. The more advanced the soul, the more quick he will get the result.

I think the basic idea should be to take one idea, stick to it, dream of it, live by it, make that particular idea mix with all the atoms in our body, insert that idea into the nucleus and seal proof it with the strongest adhesive of the world. And all the daily activities, numerous things and all shits that are working inside the mind should be left alone on the shells and the mind should be absolutely dwell on the idea. Then only future will be automatically manifested into that idea.

Now, it is up to us what the idea we will take. and there is the confusion. That's the fun of life, the eternal confusion. Past, present future...and we can't mold ourselves into one shape, it's all patch up work.

hb - remember that this too shall pass. Glad you came by. Stay, and we'll have some tea!
Kathy - how's the California sun?
Shubhajit - Wow! "In a strict sense nothing is present." - I agree. We just "are." "I am." Emptiness is form, form, emptiness....
