The Illusion of the Now Moment
Da Jeshua San
This is the biggest illusion of them all: the Now moment itself – or, at least, the way you handle the Now moment.
When it comes to the Now moment, you have made a tiny little mistake, one which has lasted for over 2000 years of your linear time, and it is this: the Now moment is not merely a concept of time; it also is a concept of space.
Time and space are linked through linearity. Usually, however, when you have the thought, “I have to be in the Now. I HAVE TO BE IN THE NOW! Oh dear God, PLEASE let me be in the Now!” you typically start from the incorrect assumption that you have to somehow align yourself with the flow of time. Think again, for this premise is flawed.
Even when, from a temporal perspective, you are in the Now, you cannot help but connect that Now moment to space, because of the very nature of your thoughts, which are, at their core, space-based. With every thought, you enter the Third Brain: the location in your physical and energetic brain where memory is stored and where, essentially, everything that you have ever experienced is being held captive.
Why do you feel sadness, for instance, because the past is gone? Why do you feel down when your relationships end? You think back to the good times, that is why. Let the good times go! Just let them be! You are holding on to something that no longer exists and, in doing so, you use the Third Brain to latch on to your past life experience, to your past expressions of energy. You try to keep this energy attached to you and it gets stuck that way. You get stuck that way.
Energy just wants to flow. It just wants to reshape itself, remold itself, revamp itself, reinvent itself, even. Yet you, in holding on to the past, you doom yourself in your attempt to keep everything in place just the way it was, and somewhere, deep down in your thoughts, a part of you screams, “No! Time and space exist! The past exists! I had this or that experience on a Monday from 11am to 5pm and, by God, I will hold on to it! I will keep it locked in my brain, for I need to remember! If I don’t remember then the worst could happen!”
What is the worst that could happen? Freedom is what happens when you let go. When you finally do, you become like the dolphin, you are the lotus, you unfold the Flower of Life, you pulse with the Heart of Things, you embrace and embody All That Is. For you see, Imzaia, the only way you will ever be able to keep thinking back to and experience your past anew, and always in Joy, is by letting it go.
When you let go of the past, of all that stuck energy in your head, then you will come to see that you are free once again, making the Now moment an entirely different experience to you indeed. Unfortunately, when the past no longer presents as a problem, when you look back and you no longer feel sadness, or guilt, or anything like that, when you actually have the opportunity to successfully enter the Now moment, to walk around in it wearing your enlightened shoes and smelling the roses, you typically tend to let yourselves get distracted by worries about uncertain future potentials instead.
Ah, the future, what a wonderful thing to worry about! I wonder, I wonder what will happen to me if I do this, or if I don’t do that, or what about if I do this instead? Oh my goodness, what would people think of me if I did that? Do you think that we should talk about tomorrow? Do you think that we should worry about tomorrow? Worry away, but what will it accomplish? Absolutely nothing. Tomorrow does not exist. Yesterday does not exist. The Now moment is a concept of both time and space. You are used to handling the Now moment from a perspective of time. Working with the Now moment from a perspective of space, however, now that is a different matter entirely.
Embodying the Space of the Now Moment
Going forward from this moment, my friends and I invite you to no longer return in thought to those places from which you came, to not think about the people, places, things, events, and situations that you removed yourself from in order to be present in this Session. We invite you to actually be here and to embody your presence here fully.
When you stop occupying your consciousness by no longer worrying about those times and spaces that your consciousness currently does not occupy, you will learn that none of your past times or spaces, nor any of your future times or spaces, will ever bother you again.
As an example, let’s look at a hypothetical Imzaia amongst you, who, like many others, is experiencing glitches in one or more relationships in life, simply because she or he is dealing with, coming to terms with, and evolving due to her or his work with the information offered in these Sessions. Like many, this hypothetical Imzaia has created for herself or himself a situation, in which a partner, a family member, a child, or a friend, believes them to be wrong to pursue the path of ascension, telling them to give it all up and to spend more time where it matters, at home, or at work, most likely.
Much like our hypothetical friend, you could choose to listen to this type of advice, but be clear in the choices that you make when you make them. Be crystal clear, for as simple as it sounds, if you choose to be here, you will not be there; and likewise, if you choose to be there, you choose against being here.
