Carpe diem (“Seize the day”); “Live the moment”; “Be present in the Now”; “The only moment that exists is the Now” – All right and absolutely true, but … I wonder, at what moment does the present begin?
The present moment is a manifestation. A “physical” manifestation of energy dense enough to be visualized and create a “reality” in 3D, 4D … and so on. A manifestation of something that begins with an intention, the intention being a pre-manifestation, the instant of the creation of the Moment (Present).
In reality, the present began in the past, an extension of yesterday and a pre-intention of tomorrow. There is no separation of time. “Time is not linear.” More likely it is only phases of creation and manifestation in constant alternation, from a purely etheric phase – the intention, and its respective response / consequence – the “physical” manifestation, i.e. visible to the naked eye, temporal or simply holographic. And the future? Just another intention, a new cycle.
“The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.”
If all that “exists” is the Present, it is only because it is in the present that we can experience with our physical senses, our most common instruments of perception, of consciousness of living (and Life), because in the deepest sense of feeling, all stages are included, all levels and their intentions (pre-manifestations), every energetic dynamic of the Whole, what we so vaguely call destiny, the natural flow of life.
Life is not created by chance, nor chance is synonymous with destiny, luck or misfortune. Everything that we are living now, at some point we intend, most likely unaware of the consequences of our unconscious thoughts or standard acts.
Now and today pay attention to what you are creating (thinking, attracting), where your attention (focus) goes, your energy, because it will be your tomorrow! It is a peek into the future, still in time for change and correction. And who does not want to know the future in advance?!
