In every moment the molecular, atomic and subatomic structure
of every cell in your body is alive and changing. Your
mind's thoughts and your emotional feelings may at times be
asleep, but the dance of your body and all the collective
elements that contain and maintain it are active. Even when your
mind and emotions are silent, like when in deep sleep, or death,
the elements of your body live on, evolve and change in
nature naturally. Creating, recreating, never pausing, never
ceasing and always in the "Now".
In every moment of life, there may at times be silence in your
mind, but there never is in your body. When awareness is
focused inwardly, our heart beat initiating the inhalation
and exhalation of the lungs and the gushing of the blood flowing
to, through, and away from every cell in your body at all times
is producing a concert of celestial harmonies.
Unlike the body's immediacy, your thoughts and emotions are
reactive and thus not "Now". You certainly at times have thoughts
in the moment, like when you are figuring out how much change to
get back after paying for your morning coffee, but your minds
chatter is virtually always about rehashing the past and plotting
for and fantasizing about the future. Reality only takes place
"Now" and that's when your body's dance and holy song is always
going on. Your thoughts and emotions are conditioned by what
your parents, teachers, friends, religious mentors and culture
have boxed you into. And there is little likelihood that they are
the same as were your parents, grandparents, great grand-parents,
and their ancestors. In this multi-media high-tech age this is
true now more than ever before. Your body though is in action in
the same way as everyone else's is and has been for as long as
there have been people. Our humanity itself is our lowest
common denominator. This is where we all meet in the "Now".
Keeping our sub atomic, atomic, molecular, cellular, organic
and bodily activity is a shared ongoing function that happens automatically without any societal, religious, racial or any
other kinds of differences.
We are all on a journey from being a living fertilized egg to
a seemingly unmoving decaying dead body of dust or ashes.
But actually we are vibrating energized sub-molecularly
and sub-atomically now and eternally. Witnessing our body
this infinite perspective may have the potential of placing our
mind and emotions on the same time schedule as our body is on
"Now", and that's the exact and only time we can be aware of
our life's journey, in reality, as it is taking place.
Far beyond what letting our emotions and mind run wild offers, meditation is a most effective tool to use to make being conscious
of being in a body, which is the most ancient and basic human
trait, a truly in the moment experiential event. And it is an exquisite one! But only if you don't just read about it and
actually do it.
