Disciplined Daily Practice
Life unfolds as time in space -- each moment registers an impression in the brain, the body and the aura (the electromagnetic field around you). Each event impresses each moment, and then the next . . . and so on. When the impression of any moment is held into the next moment, it’s a memory. When a memory influences the moment, it’s called learning. This is good, but when memory is too strong, you experience a distortion of the moment. As the system accumulates memory, unless properly processed -- these layers will eventually overwhelm the present . . . you're no longer living in the moment. In fact, you're not living at all, you're remembering and reacting. Another gift for learning from human evolution -- in addition to your own memories -- your body’s epigenetics contains memories from seven generations past -- that’s 254 ancestors adding to this moment . . . their knowledge; their emotions; their aspirations. To actually experience a moment as what it is -- inside this much influence -- you require the discipline of meditation to clarify the mind, and yoga to deeply process the body’s epigenetics. Look around this world -- people are interacting in so many ways -- some in business; in politics; in religion, and everyone just in daily life. Evolution taught humans to memorize; this gave you great progress, but evolution hasn’t taught you yet how to clear this memory; how to live in the moment; to experience the ‘what is’ and the magnificent presence that’s always present. Like driving without paying attention -- there's an emotional accident taking place in today's human interactions. This is human nature . . . it's up to you to find your way back to this moment's nature. Forgiveness is the healthiest way to process the chaos and experience your present moment. Our prayer is that you have the strength, or find the strength, or create the strength to have a disciplined daily practice -- one that processes your memory, to then live in the present moment; to learn from the past, but not live in it -- forgive and be nourished by the experience of ‘what is’ in the present moment . . . and grow into a magnificent future.
