The clock in my Reiki room never shows the wrong time, even if I remove the battery, or even if I move the hands! It always shows the time is NOW! We live in now, not a second before or after, but always right now. We look at our watch, but that only tells us the importance of now, we don’t want to miss anything.
But having said that, how many of us really live in the moment called now?
We dream of tomorrow, or what we’re going to do later, or what we must do before such a time; or we reflect on what we just said, what we just did, what he or she just did, what we did in our lives, what happened when we were young etc.
How much time do we spend thinking of the past or future?
Everything now is real, so it is obvious that we are missing a lot of reality when we dwell on past or future events. We are exchanging reality for illusion, for a mirage, exchanging a real experience for a thought or a memory.
So how do we live in the moment and make the most of our time on this planet?
I practise peace which involves consciousness of the here and now, and I practise Reiki which also involves the same consciousness. I am not bragging, I am very lucky to know this. Everyone can know this. We all have choices. Whatever we do the most, we get good at, it’s a law of nature. So if we choose to be conscious of this moment and practice, we can get good at it. How much do we want to be conscious? How much unconsiousness will we put up with? Are we prepared to let unconsciousness lead us into all kinds of situations and problems? Or are we going to enjoy this moment called now and discover forever? The time for Reiki, peace and happiness is now and if we can keep finding our way to the moment called now, we’ll enjoy a beautiful life.
