The present is not just a concept, it's an experience.- Kenny Hallstone (Gestalt Therapy)
Are you in the present moment? Are we perceiving and handling what's happening right now in this very moment? Fundamentally, what is the present moment?
The present moment has become a popular word these days. However, we are most likely not to live in the present. Our soul and consciousness tend to wander among the past and future like a hermetic pendulum.
One of my acquaintances who teaches a beautiful thing in terms of spirituality, which includes both duality and oneness and his name is Jeffrey Allen, he said in one of his courses that being in the present moment means to be in your body now. It is like a profound teach in Alchemy.
In my understanding, there are at least 2 types of what is called the present. Theoretically, it might be said that there are at least 4 types in the multiverse. Regardless of time and space, to make it easy, I am listing them as below.
- In the body, being here now
- Emptiness, nothingness, the chaotic zero
- (Both of them)
- (None of above)
I think that our soul belongs to #3. This means that the soul belongs to 2 types of 5-dimensional realm, which are both reasonable and sensible areas. In other words, the realm is comprised of both logical and physcial components. Because, as far as I can tell, our soul and its environment seem to be created as replica of the chaotic zero in a more tangible way.
I also think that is the reason I see and feel both #1 and #2 simultaneously during the meditation, which means #3 (both reasonable/logical and sensible/physical areas).
Let me go back to the present. I mean, go back to the present moment by being in both of my physical and energy body. According to Jefferey, the following activities help us to be here now and live in the present moment.
Exercises, Eating, Singing, Dancing, Meditation and so on...
In my personal experience, meditation is a bit tricky because for me it is more like a multidimensional experience. Wait...oh yes, it is absolutely the present moment!
Thank you so much for reading and let's have fun in the present week.
