What does that truly mean? Live in the exact moment that is happening now, now, now, now. . .
If we live in the Now, how can we truly evolve? We would always live in the same state of being, the present.
Interesting enough, when I’m doing readings, Spirit sometimes shows me the rearview mirror – looking into the past. Have you ever noticed how small it is compared to the windshield?
If we live in the present there is no rearview mirror or windshield (the road ahead) – just the Now.
The rearview mirror is needed to remind us of where we have been and to compare it to where we are Now, in the present, and ultimately where we see ourselves in the future. Do we blindly move forward without a plan? When we do, it becomes unorganized and somewhat of a chaos. Another interesting thought, 'Is the present chaos?'
We need a rearview mirror at the very least to be reminded of the lessons learned, so that we can change where we are going.
The Now is a place someone may need to be because they have not healed, or they do not want to make decisions about their future. It’s OK. When they are ready to heal or plan the future, they will.
The present does provide peace in the moment.
If you’re truly living in the Now, is there anything else? Or is it a façade that keeps you in balance, a type who perches himself on the fence, not able to make a move. The fence is a great place to be, a place to remain stuck.
Maybe some people are stuck in the past. Again, there’s a reason why that rearview mirror is so small. It’s OK to glance back but do your best not to live there.
If we don’t have the past, and only the present, how do we grow? Some may say if we are in the Now, we do not need to be reminded of the past. Erasing the past may affect our future. But if we’re in the present, the future doesn’t exist.
Is ignorance bliss?
