I then realized that one of the most truly human aspects of my being is my awareness – self-awareness, self-conscious being. And, I began to focus on being in awareness. Being in awareness! Simultaneously, the notion of time intruded into my awareness of being. “I am aware NOW in this existential moment.”
Heretofore I had always thought of the Eternal Now as a succession of moments – one after another coming into being. So I was aware of NOW as a continuous succession of moments. But today I saw NOW not as a succession of moments but as a constant, a whole that lay beneath my changing vision of moments.
I do not know if I engaged that NOW or recognized it or was embraced by it! But I do believe that I was touched by the Eternal in that sacred moment. The Eternal Now is always present and always giving stability to my Reality; it is that infinite Mystery that penetrates all things.
In the Eternal Present all is well and all shall be well!
Jane note: comforting words for these days of chaos. All is well and all shall be well.
