As I was reading this writing by The Gnostic Writer my mind was fully present with what I was reading. My awareness of being fully present with what I was reading is an example of being here and now. Being here and now is the existential reality. My mind is not split by going to the past or thinking about the future. I am in the awakened mindset. My mind is not hijacked either by the past or the future. My father compared such a here-and-now mindset with clear sky with no clouds.
As I am reading this passage my mind is fully present with what I am reading. My mind is not wandering. It is focused. It feels like I am in the
flow without any pull or push coming from the past or the future. I am in the fully awakened state of my mind and heart.
Not sleeping mentally or dreaming about the future keeps me anchored in the flow of awareness-awareness of here and now. Do I remain in this state all the time? I wish I could. The monkey mind wanders. Mindfulness of the monkey mind brings me back to the flow of here and now. And that is an awakened mind focused on the here and now consciouness.
May we all cultiwate skills of mindfulness to be in the here-and-now consciousness!
