It is a pity that we are all running and not even realizing this. We are chasing a moment of happiness unaware of the fact that this moment is NOW.
I defined the importance of love and moment in this short poem in my book.
This moment is the moment I have
I could feel and see you in this moment
I know no past and no future
I love to love in this moment
Oh, Naina, moment of undying love and purity
This is what I demand and seek
I feel the moment in this moment
We are always either in past or in future. But from the creator perspective, our definition of time is not only funny but meaningless too. A moment, which has already been buried or has not arrived yet, we devote all our focus ignoring our momentary NOW.
According to quantum theory, everything in this infinite consciousness is being reborn and destroyed billions of time in a fraction of seconds. Even Vipassana meditation fundamentals are based on this principles. It is said that Buddha and other great sage understood this mystery and propagated the same.
Because of the same reason, slow breathing techniques are outstanding stress buster. When one breath deeply,focus is diverted on life force, which is flowing from your body NOW. Our brain stops releasing stress hormones and then entire body feels easy and relax.
Unfortunately, our beliefs are more of destroyer of our peace. Since childhood, we are conditioned to live in past and future and constantly ignoring present.
I know, it needs to be stopped. This nonsense chain of conditioning must be broken before it devour and kills the peace from our true experience.
Live in the moment, because this is what you have.
