Increasing Awareness of the Present Moment

posted by Guy Finley

Question: What can one do to have a greater awareness of reality?

Answer: A quart cup cannot hold a gallon of water. Don’t worry about “a greater awareness” but be as constant and conscious as you can towards the awareness you can bring to bear. Each moment we put our wish for the present moment before our habituated longing for the sense of self that is produced in time, we, our awareness, and it’s capacity is enlarged. That is what is in your power.

Living the Beauty of the Present Moment

The present moment is the canvas of creation: our perception, a palette of primary colors; our actions, brush strokes — while thought provides both background and texture. To know these things is the beginning of the artful life.

Enter the Place of Power

Before you can learn how to change your destiny, you must first realize that secret place within yourself where your own future is created. You must consciously enter that place of power where all of your life-choices are made for you. It’s called the present moment: The now. And this now is the seed of all that comes later. The following paragraph helps us see into this great mystery.

It’s only what you do right this moment, right now, that’s the seed of personal change. And in the endless beauty and mystery of what is the now, this same seed of change is also the seed of your new and higher nature.

Grasp the meaning of the next sentence, fully, and you’ll have your first glimpse of just one of the special ways in which the power of the present moment can help you change your destiny.

If you choose to change right now, then you won’t have to worry about how to be different next time!

In fact, choose to change now, and that moment will never come for you to worry about how to be better next time. Why? Because your conscious choice for real change in the present moment automatically cancels the need for a better you in a better future. Why? Because all will be better for you now, which is the only time it really matters!

Make it your moment to moment practice to stay awake, and to watch for all the opportunities that your own now presents. Keep your efforts personal, practical, and to the point. If your inner work doesn’t transform the whole of your life into a more relaxed, amazing, and uplifting experience, then you’re dreaming; not changing.

Here’s an encouragement. Your efforts to contribute to these studies turn their revelations into a part of your own evolving nature. And as you awaken to this higher life within yourself, you naturally attract higher and happier events. There is no such thing as a wasted step when your final
destination is self-transformation.

Blooming is Part of Your Being

Any lingering shame over who or what you were in “days gone by” is like a newly opened rose blushing for having once been a bud…
