Living in the Here and Now

A great way to cultivate the experience of living in the HERE AND NOW is to pick up paper and pen, and sketch something in your surroundings.
Think about it. What more efficient way to slow down time, and become one with your surroundings than through the practice of sitting quietly, and staring intently at something close to you.
Attached are three of my sketches. Not great by any means but rewarding and especially as it relates to this discussion; helped me stop time, and capture the moment I was in and thereby help me experience the HERE AND NOW.
As an added benefit, practicing the HERE and NOW (through sketching) cultivates effects similar to meditation and mindfulness (and in fact, provides a great foundation to those that ultimately want to take up meditation).
Give it a try! You’ll be glad you did!
P.S. a word of encouragement to the discouraged—don’t allow yourself to fall into the normal “I can’t do it trap”. You know what I mean, the typical excuse to ourselves that we can’t sketch because we don’t have talent or don’t know how.
Don’t forget learning to walk, mathematics, and riding a bike took time! So keep practicing and trying (and/or take lessons). You will not only come to appreciate the value in creating something of your own, but also the value of slowing down time and more intimately experiencing the world about you—i.e. live in the HERE AND NOW.

Happy 2018!

To start the new year, a quick reminder of just how important beginnings are. Remember all things return to their source so start all things right!

Please enjoy the following excerpt from my book Heart of Gold. It’s a thick/dense read but worth the effort! I hope it helps you to raise your experience in 2018 to new levels of understanding and bliss.

“Real joy comes from discovering how much our lives are intricately linked with nature’s grand designs.

For me personally, one such stirring discovery was coming to realize just how deeply nature’s cycle of returning all things to their source was embedded in my life.

For instance how the same forces driving plants to produce seedlings, proteins to migrate to their originating DNA, salmon to journey thousands of miles to their spawning grounds, and stars to collapse back to the same gravitational center where they began were also the same forces molding my life—such as why rituals unfolded toward their originating purpose, why conflicts only reached resolution when the instigating event was confronted, and why we’re all irresistibly drawn to be buried in our hometowns.

Realizing just how much my own life approximated nature’s events, I gained great insights into how my life fit into nature’s grand jigsaw puzzle.

Nature’s trick of implementing this rhythm into its day-to-day business is once again linked to its creative process. Specifically, this timeless flow is linked to the relationship of a developing creation’s parts to their originating center. You’ll remember from Heart of the Universe how centers create fields and fields generate well shapes. Further, those things caught in the grips of the well become aligned and attracted toward the center.

In the cases where the well’s walls are steep enough, the surrounding parts will actually fall inward and downwards toward their originating centers. They may even come into contact with the center. The creative force’s full cycle expression causes things to come into contact with their originator; in other words, to return to their source!

In a perfect kind of harmony, nature keeps all things true to where they began, forever linking and ultimately drawing them back toward their source. All things do meet their Maker.

The ramifications to our lives are profound. The conditions surrounding the points of inception in our lives are paramount. They are always present in our current lives and will always come back to us. In other words, all the creations of our lives never escape their roots; they are forever linked to and a whole byproduct of the place where they began. We are accountable for everything we do.

Thus, as you go about the various acts of your life—thoughts, a conversation, new initiatives, relationships, hopes, desires, and dreams—always strive to make them as fine and balanced as possible. Approach, interact with, and begin all things with only the highest order of truth, love, kindness, and compassion. By doing so, you’ll have given all things their best possible start, and the best chance of returning to you in similarly beautiful form as something you can be proud of and, over time, defining you the person and how you’ll be remembered.”…/books-by-jin/…/heart-of-gold/

Feeling Grateful to a Great Universe

We should feel grateful. Thankful for the order, harmony, and beauty streaming throughout the universe!
In the brilliant radiance of flowers, rainbows and sunsets, sparkling glaciers, temples, and infinite stars on a moonless night.
In all the billions of miracles occurring simultaneously in our bodies every moment.
In crystals, a mother’s patience, waterfalls, mountain vistas, Van Gogh’s skies, and the bliss in a child’s face.
God’s smile shining brightly through all her lovely creations!
