This moment

this-moment

This moment is the last moment, and every moment is a rebirth.

It is widely believed that which is just born, which has just come into existence, has no past behind it. Birth seen through this lens, is the condition of having no past.

And likewise, anything which now dies, which has just ceased to be, has no future left in front of it. It is widely believed that death is the condition of having no future.

These comments however defy direct experience and rationale, as it is the case that the present moment has no past or future simultaneously.

That is, birth and death are one in this present moment. This moment is just now being born – you can never find a past to the present moment, and you can never find something after it either.

Yet also, this moment is just now dying- as you could never find a future to this moment, and you can never find something after it.

This present moment then, is the synchronicity of opposites, a momentary coming together of an underlying field of infinite possibilities – an unending continuance of infinite birth and death – of being and non-being, of existence and non-existence in an eternal present.

Rest in this timeless awareness, all else that can be conceived is a mirage, a play in a forest of symbolic appearance.
