I have had another shift in my understanding or perhaps association with the Now. I spoke in part 8 about the closer you are to being in the experience of the Now, the closer you get to instant manifestation. This ties in to my understanding of what Today means and it has been percolating for about a week.
I didn’t understand at first why I was being directed to claim my Today every morning, noon and night for the past week. Isn’t Today a step away from the energy of Now? Isn’t it a broad term for a slice of Time? Apparently not! Today is the Living of the Now as a physical interaction. It starts out with that simple understanding that we have all heard “Tomorrow never comes.” So true! Even when the clock rolls over to tomorrow, it automatically becomes Today.
So how does that change your view of yourself, your creations, and your life? It took me a few days but then lightning struck today and I could see what occurs. Do you remember how I said that everything is available in the Now? Well, Today is where it all plays out. Today is where your physical life mirrors the Now. It is the condensation of your Now choices into a physical life that you move through, interact with and literally live in. When you realize that Today is not only The Day, but is The Day EVERYDAY, then you automatically erase not only the past but the future as well. And I mean literally erase your concept of them. When you are remembering something from the past, you are literally placing it into your Today or trying to take yourself out of Today, which is impossible. When you are planning something for the future, you are literally placing it onto the Today that you choose to experience it. You are literally taking it out of your Today and placing it into the future, which never will exist.
Let me have you feel into that planning energy. Imagine your calendar in front of you and you are noting something down for two weeks from now. There is a stretch to that energy, and in some cases a feeling of energetic disconnect. This is because you can only experience that energy Today. You are artificially placing that energy into a Today of your choosing. I am not saying that we all have to stop planning. What I hope to get across is that you recognize the artificiality of removing that energy from your immediate physical experience. That is NOT where the energy lies. There is no possible way for it to exist, except in your Now.
Imagine something of joy that you are looking forward to doing. There is anticipation to it, but that anticipation is the joy of the experience stretched out of your Today. It has the underlying feeling of having a bit of stress or tension to it because of that artificial shift into the future, which doesn’t exist. Now remember an experience in your past that you hope you never have to experience again. This time there is a dread or sorrow that arises as you think about it. This is the emotional reaction to placing yourself in either a yesterday, which doesn’t exist any longer, or bringing that yesterday experience into Today, which doesn’t resonate.
When you start living in Today, the rest of time feels completely smudged off your brain. You also will need lots of reminder notes! We have planned so many things to facilitate our interaction with this world and WE are the ones who have invented past, present and future. It was all about creating as many experiences as possible. But if all those experiences want to be recognized as happening Today, where will that take us as a society, as a species and as individuals? When everything is available Now and is ready to be expressed in our physical life Today, how can that NOT be instant manifestation? It is very literally our Here and Now!
