The Presence is the Gift – Living in the Present Moment
Can we all get to a place in our consciousness in which we become present moment aware or as we in the field of metaphysics call aware in the Presence? It is often difficult for us to assert that we create life in the present moment or in the Presence because many of us spend most of our mental energy in the past or in the future. We search for ways to escape the moment. Yet, if we want to be powerful co-creators, we must realize that the Presence is the gift.
The desire to become a powerful co-creator is in all of us. Each of us want to achieve our desires and set forward powerful intentions, but the difficulty we are face with is remaining in the Presence. So how do we become more present moment aware? Here are 4 metaphysical and personal development strategies and technologies to assist you in becoming more present moment aware or usher you in the Presence:
One, to become more present moment aware or to usher you in the presence, you should consider a daily practice of yoga. Yoga requires concentration on the breath with movement. The asanas or poses are mastered by focusing your energy and intent in the moment. It is very difficult to do yoga while thinking about your dry cleaning. Your mind and breath become one and you must remain focused on each move as you flow. This is synonymous with life and living. Yoga can be a powerful personal development tool and technology when practiced for the purpose of spiritual growth and enlightenment. Moreover, through present moment awareness, yoga helps us to build our ability to focus. This ability to focus helps us to develop powerful intentions.
Two, make sure your language is present moment. When setting your intentions or articulating your goals and desires, you should practice speaking in present tense. For example one might say….
…I will be independently wealthy someday.
This is not present tense. Present tense would be to say…
….I am independently wealthy.
We start to trust such self-affirming statements of our intentions when we say them often and when we pray, meditate, and align right actions with our desires. However, it all begins in the present moment or in the Presence.
Third, while journaling about your thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and actions, you should practice journaling in present tense. Write about how you are feeling in the moment and find ways in which to validate your true and authentic self in the moment.
Fourth, love. That is right, love. Love wholeheartedly. Love yourself and love others. Now, you may be wondering, what does love have to do with it? Love has everything to do with it. Love is a very validating energy and it helps us remain in the present moment or in the Presence. Love brings order and peace while ushering us into the Presence.
And last, look for the gift and the good in every situation. Even during our most trying times, if we choose to see some glimmer of good in every situation then we can remain in the Presence without feeling guilt, shame, regret, or self-reproach. We must find the good and the gift in all situations-even if the glimmer of good or the gift is…I survived. This is the metaphysics of being and becoming. This is the metaphysics of hope eternal.
Yes, the present moment or the Presence is where we create life. If we desire to be powerful co-creators with the universe, we must learn to practice present moment awareness or being aware in the Presence. For it is true, all we have is this moment. Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow is not promised. Today is always here and all we have is this moment. Make the most of it.
