There is a mystery to be unravelled about the "now" rather than what is in the "now". A mystery that is far beyond any concept of “now” which we think we know. I am talking about this very “now” that we keep experiencing every single moment. This “now” that makes us think we are alive, here. This “now” that makes us feel a separation between us and others, between the knower and the known. This “now” that is taking place even while we are asleep. We “live” in it, “live” by it, but rarely do we question what “now” really is.
Seemingly, the “now” is inseparable from us. So the question here is, is there really “now” as a reality of its own separate from us or that some process is going on which makes us feel the “now” as real, as a container for happenings to take place real-time? What if “now” is not a timeline? What if “now” is a concept pointing to a reality that is yet to be unravelled? What if, “now” does not really exist except for something else that is taking place? What will that be then?
And again, what if, one day death comes and people thought we are dead by the motionless body we have left behind, but for us maybe our experience of our present “now” is not death or even unconsciousness, but only to have “death” as a unique experience of “now”? And that this “now” is a concept that kept us mortal in the midst of immortality. And if that is truly known, then maybe death is not what we think it is. And then the hard knock question will be – which is more fearful – to die or not be able to die?
But then again it is the experience which frightens us. “Death” as an experience seems frightening to us. But “not being able to die” as another experience is also somewhat bizarre. But if understanding meets what “now” truly is, instead of falling into the experience of the “now”, we will begin to taste a new found freedom which we never felt before. And that can only be unravelled by “you” since “you” and “now” seems inseparable.
Welcome to the journey of awareness leading to Right Understanding where you can finally begin to unravel the mystery of the “now”.
