I am not going to go into any major immersion into quantum physics here and the mysteries of the universe, but I did want to broach this subject and give it some attention. Real time is “Now” because the present moment, no matter how fleeting it may appear to be, is all there is and all we have.
In addition to this, we are always “Here” experiencing that present moment as well. Let’s spend a few moments exploring the importance of this seemingly simple statement. Then we will have positioned ourselves in a way to embrace our power whic we possess to consciously direct our lives.
Here and Now
I can’t think of a better way to get our journey started than to share a musical composition from one of my favorite singers of all time, Luther Vandross.
Now that should have definitely put you in the mood to dig a little deeper into the essence of the present moment where all the “real” action takes place. Stuff like sharing, forgiveness, and unconditional love, are just a few of the attributes of life which are available this very moment for us to embrace.
None of these attributes need to be put off to some idyllic time when things are just right and everything falls into place. Whether we realize it or not, that time is Now. The crazy part of all this is that if we put it off now, we will be putting it off then, because that is what we are programmed to do.
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” — Marcel Proust —
Having new eyes is a way to go beyond perception to true vision. In this way, we see things the way they are, and not how we think they are or want them to be. This is a process of letting go of stuff, rather than adding to our bank of data and info. When we release these misguided ideas, beliefs, and images which we have accumulated over time, we can then see with the “new eyes” of which Marcel Proust speaks about. This allows us to consciously experience the Here and Now.
What About “Fake” Time
We have been briefly discussing how “real” time exists in the here and now, so what exactly is fake time. Well, when we are not present and aware of what is going on this very moment, we are off experiencing different dimensions of thought and images which just flicker in and out of our mind.
It is so easy to get caught up with thinking that we “are” these thoughts and images, and that they actually mean something. This is the trap into which we all fall. We are trying to make sense out of nonsense while living in a fake version of time.
When we are truly present, time as we understand it does not exist at all. Anything past and future actually exists right now. Without those past and future thoughts, all we have is our Presence in the Moment. This is where our power lies, as we are only able to make decisions in the now. Everything else is just mind play or fake time.
Let’s now explore a few ways in which we can more easily experience “real” time; after all, that is where all the action is. It is just a matter of removing a few of the obstacles which we have inadvertently put in our way.
On the surface this may sound like an impossible task given our current circumstances. Let’s dig a little more into this and discover why this is possible, and actually the natural way to be.
The key word here is “Be”, as that is who we really Are. When we get caught up in all the random thoughts which flicker through our minds on a daily basis, we create a false impression of who we are by thinking those thoughts are us. Those thoughts are not only not us, but they are actually meaningless.
It’s like an old recording being constantly replayed in our heads. A few of the lyrics change here and there over time, but we are just replaying the same music in our heads. It’s all “borrowed knowledge” which we learned, and which we use to create different versions of the same experiences. The form changes but the content remains the same. We can also throw in some worry and fear about future events as well, which is again based on ideas about ourselves which we have developed from our many prior experiences, some of which were very emotional and even traumatic..
The only way we can experience the true essence of the present moment is to first observe this onslaught of thoughts, and then choose to replace them with more life enhancing ideas related to the Truth of Who We really Are. The last thing we want to do is resist them, or pretend they are not there by getting defensive.
Non-acceptance, resistance, and defensiveness are Red Alerts for us to notice, and then choose to go in a more fulfilling direction. When we are present and aware, we can use our old conditioning to our benefit in order to advance in the direction we truly desire to go.
So it is possible to enjoy each moment regardless of our circumstances by choosing to release the intrusions from the past and future. We can choose to think the way we desire to think, and in a way which advances and not detracts from our goals and intentions.
Waking Up to Who We Truly Are
It all comes down to a choice between Love and Fear. Each side of the fence presents a totally different picture of reality. One is true and the other fake, but even the fake reality seems so real that we find it hard to accept it is not real.
It’s time to start remembering the truth about ourselves, and stop living the lies. Anything fear-based is a lie. Eventually it will be like having an Internal Lie Detector where we can always detect when something is not right either internally or externally.
A few simple exercises to get us started in this direction is to wake up in the morning, and as we open our eyes, and are still in that in between state of sleep and wakefulness, we ask OurSelves for guidance during the day on any specific issues with which we may be dealing. The intuitive part of ourselves will then go to work in leading the way or providing answers to any specific questions. The key is to be specific.
Then during the day we must remind ourselves as often as we remember to do so, that “We choose to be content and happy right this moment” and “We choose to feel good now as well”. This is all based on Presence and Observation. The more we remind ourselves to stay present and observe our feelings, thoughts, and reactions, we then can more easily choose to replace any disturbing stuff with thoughts and ideas which contribute to our overall health and growth.
Once again, we are not pretending that negative thoughts and feelings are not there, but we are choosing to observe them in the present moment, and then making a conscious choice to change direction. Over time this gets easier as the cloud cover begins to dissipate, and our Internal Sun is able to break through and shine.
The Essence of Who We truly Are has always been there, but merely hidden within the confines of our own self-constructed barriers of fear, guilt, and false impressions. It’s time to break free and experience the life we were “meant to remember” to live.
As we can see, living in “Real Time” encompasses a lot more than merely finding ways to stay present. It is unearthing much of the garbage we have accumulated, and this can be very uncomfortable to experience while observing and letting this stuff go. But it is a small price to pay in order to break through that cloud cover and release our True Selves.
What we will eventually realize is that things are “good already”, and it does not matter what is happening “out there”. We now understand what is most important is that we can choose to make a Positive Impact in our lives and in the lives of others right this moment, with things exactly as they are or appear to be. Things on the outside do not need to change for us to do our own thing so to speak.
This very insight empowers us as we move forward in accomplishing our business and personal goals, as well as in discovering and fulfilling our Life Purpose whatever that may be for each of us. We are now a Light within the Darkness of Fear and Uncertainty, and we are able to awaken others to Who They really Are so that they can make their own individual contributions.
So strap on your seatbelts, or not, if you are the more adventurous type, and be prepared for many wonderful and enlightening experiences. Once the roller coaster gets moving and we acclimate ourselves to all the twists and turns and new discoveries, we will not want to live any other way. Fully engaging in the Present Moment is living our lives to the fullest with no regrets.
Let’s all experience Real Time in the Here and Now, and use that time as a learning and communication device to awaken ourselves, and then spread the word in order to awaken others to their true Magnificence. It is quite a ride for sure, but not one to be missed.
All the very Best,
