The Moment
 
While contemplating 3Dimensional time as i was dosing off
to sleep last night - an opened shoebox appeared within the
darkness of my mind with two slats that were dividing the
space within the shoebox into three equally sized compartments.
And as i was staring at this shoebox, a hand reached down from
some high place and it removed the two slats and as i was
staring into the same shoebox that now had no compartments;
the vision ended and this morning an epiphany occurred:

The three compartments are past, present and future.
And when the illusionary walls that divide them are removed;
well... Ha! There is only the moment.

We see the moment as a very tiny thing; the minute fragment
of an hour... of a day... of a year. .but (the cosmic joke here)
(the cosmic reality) is that it's quite the opposite. It's within the
moment that all this fragmenting goes on. The moment comes
first and it's HUGE. To keep returning to the moment until
we exist in the moment is HUGE.

Joy and Light,
Chi

Chi, This is something I have been working on lately. To truly live in the moment. When you really stop to think about it, and I mean really think about it, there is nothing else but THIS moment. We may put a judgment on it as good or bad, but never the less, this is what it is. In a way, this is very freeing. We don't have to worry about the future or have regrets about the past. But so many people get caught up in looking back or looking forward that they don't live in this moment right now! In my opinion, we may all be happier if we could learn to do this--not easy, I know. But we can try!
love,
Joanne

Cool analogy, Chi, I like it.
And thinking about the "shoebox", I thought
perhaps a metaphor for 'the path we walk'.

Thanks for sharing this...

Love...Peg

i agree; except that some of us really do have to go all the way
back (passed this life into others) before we can truly understand
the concept of beng in the moment; like me, the slow journeyer.
Soft Grin...
And i cannot thank Shirley enough for being a part of that journey;
for her help during that part. i am very grateful.

Joy and Light,
Chi
