Living In The Now

For the month of April 2003, Maggy gave Shirley message about living in the now:

Living In The Now

"Did you ever wonder
What life is all about?
How it has hidden messages
You have to figure out
Living in the now brings the synergy
Of what it's all about."

"Living in the Now creates a synergy that connects you, the earth, and the Universe. The Now is not restricted by time, just as there are no such restrictions or limitations in the Universe. The past, present, and future are all one and all eternal. That is the Now--and when you tap into this, you discover Universal Power."

So Says Maggy

Shirley Explains Living In The Now

It was a rainy April morning and I was having a hearty breakfast with Maggy at her dining room table that overlooked the rolling hills. While holding my teacup and smelling the aroma of fresh Jasmine tea, I noticed the rain hitting the windows, making sounds like a tap dancer.

I said, "Maggy, isn't that sound beautiful?" Sometimes all it took was a few words for her to start in on another story. "Living in the now is beautiful," Maggy said. "When you launch your thoughts upon the sea of the present-day, your spirituality will be enhanced like a gentle breeze routing you in the right direction of life."

Living in the NowShe explained how the mind spends most of the time either reflecting on past or future events, not the here and now. The past is much like a storybook of the data you've already experienced, and the future is a projection of desires. Your past is filled with blessings when you think of those experiences thought of as learning lessons. It is important not to allow the past to hold you back or to fall into the trap of 'poor me. You can also hold yourself back when you push your future. It is all in the balance of the Now. You are the writer, producer and director of your life--you create the road map--so do it with the idea of achieving a spiritual reward.

Living in the NowI love walking in the rain. I stepped outside of the house and opened my umbrella. I thought to myself, all I need to do is to keep an open mind and body, and a good sense of humor for life to be fulfilling. When you trust the Self, then your life takes direction without the unnecessary struggle. With that realization, I whirled around on the street, swinging my umbrella overhead like Gene Kelly did in "Singing In The Rain." I danced and splashed in the rain! Life was truly great.

Meditation for Living In The Now

  1. Picture the colors pink and blue flowing from your toes to the top of your head.
  2. Encircle your outer body with the colors of gold, emerald green, and blue violet.
  3. Picture yourself sitting in a thick forest, surrounded by nature's wonders.
  4. See this beautiful rose bush in front of you? Watch the rose unfold from a bud to full bloom. Take your time.
  5. Feel the energy flow inside your body while watching the rose open.
  6. Look up into the trees and see a bird; this bird is perched high on a limb, singing it's heart out. The song is letting you know life has magic to unfold.
