What’s So Cool About NOW?

13.22 … He watches, gives blessing, bears all, feels all. He is called the Lord Supreme and the Supreme Soul.

13.23 He who knows in truth this Spirit and knows nature with its changing conditions, wherever this man may be he is no more whirled round by fate. - The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 13)

here and now

Why are we instructed to stay in the moment when possible? Because in this moment eternity meets time and space. In this very moment God and divinity are present. At this time spirit and wisdom becomes accessible. Peace and joy are at hand.

Ok, so why can’t we feel and know all this good stuff??

attention

Pure attention is required. We must look at and experience things as they are. When done with pure attention, no thoughts about the thing or experience are generated inside our head. When that happens, the eternal moment and all its goodness starts to become apparent. Practice makes perfect. It’s a muscle that slowly grows and yields amazing results! Try it!

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM fully attentive.

What Is True Wisdom?

13.2 Know that I am the knower in all the fields of my creation; and that the wisdom which sees the field and the knower of the field is true wisdom. - The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 13)

wisdom?

What is wisdom?

  • Is it an ability to understand things as they are?
  • Does it help in understanding origins and destinies?
  • Does it aid in living happily?

true wisdom

According to the supreme God personality speaking via The Gita true wisdom is when we realize that God is the ‘field’, the creation and that she’s the knower of her creation as well. God is the knower and that which is knowable.

God creates us to experience totality, to experience what she is, to enjoy being limited and thus finds a way to escape her infinity…We are her children in this eternal adventure, we have nowhere to go but to her, we are safe now and forever!

Daily Affirmation: Today I see what is.

What’s The Best Meditation?

12.12 For concentration is better than mere practice, and meditation is better than concentration; but higher than meditation is surrender in love of the fruit of one’s actions, for on surrender follows peace. - The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 12)

meditation

There are a myriad different techniques that fall under the umbrella of meditation, here are some that I share on NamasteNow. In general meditation techniques range from concentration to chanting to reflection and so on. Any practice that softens us, helps us become more open minded, become more tolerant, forgiving, grateful and loving is good!

surrender in love…

According to this holy book of the Hindus, surrendering all action to God and in love is the way to peace and happiness. When we’re at peace, we can more easily enjoy the inspiration and love that rain down on us from all directions. Only when our desires and the constant mind chatter peter down can we hope to tap into this ever-present Universal resource…. Lets practice!

Daily Affirmation: Today I lovingly surrender!
