By bringing our attention completely to the present, we naturally anchor ourselves in love-consciousness, that beautiful inner experience of peace, silence, love, and depth. Life is always evolving, always moving towards greater growth and expansion, and by embracing the inherent perfection of this moment, we naturally raise our inner vibration.
By bringing our attention completely to the present, we destroy one of mankind’s most deeply rooted negative beliefs. It is the origin of our discontent and it is the false mental idea that prevents us from experiencing fullness: the idea that “there is something wrong right now.” Although we do not realize it, almost everyone shares this belief. Even if we love our lives, very few feel absolutely complete.
Although I had been meditating for many years, through the practice of my System I realized how blind I was to the pure wonder and beauty of the world. When I lived in Melbourne, Australia, I used to walk with my dog along the seashore. Eternally busy and hassled, I would rush along, with my dog’s leash around my arm, my cell phone pressed between my jaw and my shoulder, talking frantically, with a cigarette in one hand and a coffee in the other. One day, when I began to experience love-consciousness, I was walking my dog without my usual accessories, and I suddenly heard a repetitive, unknown sound. I stopped and listened. It was a sound I had never heard: the sound of sea waves breaking on the shore. That was a moment of intense awareness. I had walked my dog on the beach every day for five years, completely deaf to the call of the sea, so lost in my thoughts, worries and anxieties that I had never heard the sound of the sea until now.
At that moment, I realized that I had never been in the present moment. Our thoughts lead us outward constantly, lost in worries about the future or in regrets of the past, and we are never with ourselves enough to realize that everything we are looking for so desperately is already here. As we begin to expand love-consciousness we learn to embrace the now rather than frantically trying to change and control everything. We learn to flow within the ever-changing experience of life.
There is no contradiction between living in the moment and achieving your dreams, it does not mean that we do not plan our lives. When we give up our patterns of fear-based thoughts, our dreams spontaneously become reality. By eliminating the idea that there is something wrong with this moment, the whole structure of self-distrust and separation falls into a pile of debris and nothing stops us from reaching our dreams.
