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??
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!
