The Blessing of the Present Moment

Copyright (c) 2007-2017
(See This Article in its Original Format.)

At each moment in our daily lives, we have an unprecedented opportunity. Generations before us did not have this blessing of spiritual awareness that is available today. Humanity as a whole is awakening, and we are actively participating in this process even if we are not consciously aware of it.

One of the simplest and most profound of spiritual teachings asks us to be in the present moment. This is an ancient teaching, and today has even greater meaning. With the advent of global telecommunication, daily life can be full or even stretched to capacity with communication, tasks and events to deal with. How then are we to remain centered, guided spiritually, and present to God's love in the midst of such a rapidly changing landscape?

Today's meditation practice can no longer be separated from the events of daily life. The serious nature of the times we live in now requires us to be fully in life, and present to address the many challenges we all face. Though it continues to be helpful to consciously set aside a few minutes of silent, contemplative time each day, our lives are asking that we carry this contemplative awareness more fully into our daily lives.

A regular meditation or prayer practice trains the mind and the body to create space around habitual and reactive mental patterns that keep us separate from God's love. Meditation is profoundly useful for purification and freeing oneself from negative of self defeating patterns. Even five minutes a day of meditation can refresh the body, mind and spirit, and can even transform difficult experiences.

To take this one step further, allow your entire day to be a meditation and a prayer. This is not meant as drudgery but as joyful freedom. How do you do such a thing? It starts simply with awareness first, and the intention that you become closer to God throughout your day.

Today, as you go about the affairs of your daily life, notice how God is guiding you. What thoughts and feelings are present within you? What events come into your day unexpectedly? What challenges do you face? How do you respond to your fellow souls that share this Earth with you? Notice the opportunities God offers to share love with others. Do you joyfully embrace these opportunities, or turn a deaf ear because you are busy with other things?

Each day and each moment is a spiritual teaching. God is constantly revealing how we can love more, how we can learn more about ourselves and the Divine. God speaks in each moment, even if we do not think we can hear. The voice of spirit lives within our bodies, our hearts, our minds and our consciousness. Each day is a blessing that is given to us freely. What we do with this blessing has a profound impact on the others around us, on our loved ones, families, friends, and the larger network of human consciousness that we are a part of.

The Earth herself benefits from the blessings that we share through being fully present our daily lives. The vibration of love that opens when we attune to God creates a healing presence that affects the physical and energy bodies of the Earth, and offers support during this very difficult time when so much is changing on a planetary level. Give yourself blessings, praise and love each time you breathe and take a moment to attune spiritually in the midst of your busy day. By full embracing the blessing of the present moment, you are helping your fellow human beings as well as yourself.

Written by: Mashubi Rochell | Distributed: 2007-12-31 | Word Count: 780 | Page Views: 2706 | Votes: 3 | Rating: 0.67
In previous eras, the nature of sacred marriage was connected with duty, or related to practical necessities. Nowadays, as human relationships transform and become more conscious, the nature of sacred marriage enters a whole new domain of possibility, that is related to two souls who become One in God, without releasing their individuality or unique identities.

This is a time of monumental transition for our world, and each of our lives is being affected by the larger planetary transformations that are happening.

Written by: Mashubi Rochell | Distributed: 2007-12-12 | Word Count: 814 | Page Views: 2970 | Votes: 10 | Rating: 2.20
When we begin to awaken spiritually, we ask 'why am I here?', and 'for what purpose did God create me?' For some, an inner understanding of divine soul purpose emerges relatively early in the spiritual journey. For others, knowledge of soul purpose eludes our human embodied self for quite a long time, necessitating a period of 'walking in the desert' with little apparent support. God created you so carefully, and uniquely for the sacred purpose you embody.

In this day and time, it almost seems as if kindness, politeness, consideration, and most of the lessons we were taught as children were tossed out of the window one day and replaced with a new set of rules. Could it simply be that children these days are born with a defect, lacking self-control? Or are they just not being taught the way they should be taught; parents blaming modern day hardships and circumstances? It is true that the children being raised today will determine the shape of our future, but in the meantime, whose example are they following?
