Sometimes, the most precious and wonderful memories are made when we allow ourselves to simply BE in any given moment. It really is a matter of allowing each moment to flow freely. It has taken me so long to realize that by not DOING ~ simply by BEING in a moment I can access every aspect of what I’ve labeled my ‘child-light’. It’s that moment, that special feeling that allows me to see everything around me as brand new, through the eyes of my Child Self. Everything appears new and wonderful, and the fascination and joy fills me with a sense of wonder and beauty that cannot be described, nor can it be equaled! I’ve discovered that those times are glimpses into the power of the Now, the Present moment.
Every one of us has that special Child-Light within, the essence of our True Self, with which we entered into this incarnation. Many of the great spiritual Masters and others have spoken about it over the years. Jesus told us: “In order to enter the kingdom of God, you must become like a little child.” Eckhart Tolle, the modern day Spiritual sage says this: “Realize deeply that the present is all you ever have. Make the Now the primary focus of your Life.” George Harrison, former member of the rock band ‘The Beatles’ stated in an interview many years ago: “All we ever really have is the Now.”
It isn’t rocket science, then! When we allow ourselves to simply be in the moment, our Child-Light shines forth brightly, and our joy expands exponentially! We feel the bliss of being, the gratitude of living. This is Presence, the power of the Now. Being is miles ahead of doing!
Many of us catch glimpses of our Child-Light throughout our lives, but it seems elusive to us, and the moments may seem fleeting. We have the ability to harness that feeling, that BEING, and remain in the moment. It takes practice, but it can be done. We have the ability and capacity to harness the power of the now every single moment of every single day. We simply need to focus ourselves on remaining in the Present.
Our EGO (Easing God Out) strives to keep us stuck in the muck and mire, making it difficult to see the forest through the trees. We can use Reiki energy to help us to stay anchored in the Present moment, and the symbol that I use most often to remain present is ‘Cho-ku-rei’, although at times I’ve used the ‘Raku’ symbol as effectively. In many moments, I’ve not only harnessed the power of Reiki to help me remain in the Now, I’ve also called upon Archangel Michael for strength of mind, and Archangel Raphael with his emerald green healing energy, to help anchor me in the Present.
Ego fights us all the way when we wish to simply BE, because when we catch a glimpse of being in a moment, Ego has absolutely no power or place in our Life. It is our ego that complicates simple truths, because EGO does not want us to recognize that we don’t need Ego to BE. We are driven by our egos, but we do not have to remain stuck in the egoic constructed realities we’ve created for ourselves. Ego holds tightly to most of us on this level of existence, because without our profound belief in some type of illusion, our ego tells us there is nothing. And we believe the big lies our egos force us to cling to.
At the basis of any belief that our ego has constructed, at the basis of any illusion regarding ‘the way it should be’ or ‘the way we should act’ is fear (Forget Everything And Run!). Fear requires our ego to cling to our illusory ‘beliefs’ and our illusory ‘truths’ as though there is nothing else that matters. When we choose to move beyond our personal fears and into Divine Truth and Light, we can free ourselves from the limiting illusions that Ego creates.
When we allow ourselves to shake Ego off, and simply choose to BE, we become one with the totality of Being, one with Spirit and Nature, one with each other. That is when we allow our Child-Light to shine forth, and we access that purest form of joy. Our Being is Light, our wholeness is Light, we are Light. Our egos want us to believe that we are matter, or form. Our egos don’t want us to know that we are the purest forms of Energy and Light. Our true essence is Light and Energy, NOT form (matter). When we allow our Child-Light to shine forth, we are allowing ourselves to BE.
And at that very moment, we are living in the Now, in the Present. We have accessed the purest form of joy, the purest form of peace, the purest form of LOVE. Our true essence …
