Let go of denying this moment

If we spend the time that is a special occasion or holiday dreading it ending and not enjoying it, planning a better one next time, thinking of the next day, and then spending the time in between the special occasions/holiday/big thing waiting for that time to pass and hating each moment, what is the point of a special occasion or holiday? And what is the point of life?

It seems we are always wanting to deny the moment that is now, this present moment, we always are imagining a better one in the future or remembering one we had. But the memory is false, as the reality was, instead of enjoying that past moment then, we were actually at the time dreaming of a better one in the imaginary future.

Just enjoy now, leave the patterns of the mind, the imaginary story, and appreciate your surroundings, hear the noises and sounds, feel the air, sense the smells, notice the objects around you, hear, see, and just feel your inner energy and soul too. Magic is in this ‘ordinary’ present moment always, we just have to be conscious to observe and enjoy it. Stop looking and just see.

Let go of denying this moment, it is your real life.

2019

2019 like 1843, 1031, 2039 BC and so on are all history, they no longer exist, except as a memory or a memory of something we read or were told about a past year. They are just mental forms, temporary like all, and are mythological like time itself. They are human mind constructs.

None of that matters unless you attach yourself to the past. If you make attachments, then the past will allow your ego to shape your life and control it. If we accept that everything that happened and existed up to this moment now no longer exists apart from in our mind, then we can choose to let go of it by not energising it. Anything within our mind is within us and the real you and I can control it no the other way round, it is a choice.

‘I had a bad 2019’ or ‘2019 was great’…neither matter, it is the past, gone and as you read this, it is now, as in the eternal present moment. Even when we get to 1 hour from now, it will be now, it will be the present moment, the only moment that you are ever alive. Past and future exist only in the mind.

It won’t matter what year it is, day of the week, hour, minute, second…that is just the surface of our life situation, our real life is always in the moment that is now. Thus if we accept now, embrace it and allow the inner joy that is always there to flow in our consciousness, then what happens in 2019, 2020, 2030 so on does not matter, it will not affect our inner state of joy, it only disrupts the mythical unreal world of the time-bound life situation that we all think is ‘normal’ life.

2019, except for this moment right now no longer exists. Accepting that will bring you constant joy and peace, not an unconscious mind-controlled life that gets its very existence from what has already happened and suffers from it.
