The Elusive Present Moment

The body anchors one in the present moment, so when this alignment occurs there’s harmony, but if the body isn’t used as an anchor, the mind continues its grasp for objects and the present moment remains elusive.

Although life only happens in the present moment, the present moment is probably the most elusive place for one to not only remain in, but to get to. To me the reason for this elusiveness is because one tries to get there with the mind and most minds aren’t disciplined enough to get there, let alone stay there. Because of the way we have evolved as a species, most minds are in constant motion, trying to figure out how to make life more pleasurable, and although pleasure is attained at times, it never last for long. This is how the mind views the present moment also, it knows it’s where life happens intellectually and there’s much pleasure here, but it doesn’t fully grasp what this means so it never settles. It’s one of the reasons objects are used and until there’s a shift that allows one to see the present moment through the body, the present moment which allows peace remains elusive.

The body becomes the source of light for the awareness of the present moment when this shift happens. There’s nothing more to do with this shift except to practice becoming more aware of the source of light of the body. There are many objects that the mind uses to keep the present moment elusive, but the body regardless of the object the mind grasp for, is always present. When a thief cases out a place, he’s present, but he’s in the mind. The body anchors one in the present, so when this alignment occurs there’s harmony. This is as natural as life itself, but if the body isn’t used as a present moment anchor, the mind will continue its grasp for objects and the present moment will remain elusive.
