The present moment

All there ever is.

Present moment by artist Mike Heseltine

My life is the present moment.

Between facing my past and my future, I find stillness.
Within the stillness I become formless and infinite.
In this picture, the outer figures look to the future or the past. In order to experience the present, portrayed by the figure in the middle, I find an acceptance of death, stillness and timelessness is helpful. If I can guide my thoughts to the stillness of the tomb, like a mantra I find the stillness between thoughts. In that space, I no longer feel defined by my thoughts. Above me is the witness. The part of me that never changes and is beyond time and form.

My thoughts rotate around stillness and happiness.

My mind revolves mindlessly upon thoughts of happiness. Only in the centre of my mind, where thoughts are still, do I experience it. Thich Nhat Hanh writes... “No mud, no lotus. Both suffering and happiness are of an organic nature, which means they are both transitory, they are always changing.The flower, when it wilts, becomes the compost. The compost can help grow a flower again.
Happiness is also organic and impermanent by nature. It can become suffering and suffering can become happiness again.”

Spiritual Painting

Outside the flow of time.

I try to keep aware of the witnesser of my thoughts.
The presence that connects us all and is beyond time, form or change.
