When Is Now The Right Time? Part 2

Waiting For Something Better To Come Is Not Good

Putting off to the future something good which you should be enjoying today is wholly wrong. Ideologies such as communism, socialism or any other type of ‘ism’, as well as rigid religious belief systems, operate totally from the assumption that the greatest good for all lies in the future when happiness, equality, liberation, fulfilment, etc. will eventually be attained.

So that will happen in the now then. Or we could just have it all now instead. When you look at it with a big shiny light on it like that then you see the insanity of it all.

Quite often the means of getting to the future point involves the torture, enslavement, and murder of the people in the present to create a better future. As an example, the worst of which recently is Communism, over 50 million people were murdered in China and Russia to create a ‘better world’. Now this is a chilling example of how the belief that the better future creates a present hell on earth.

Do you see the result is obviously much larger than your own practice of living in disharmony in the false belief that it will create a better life for you? The scale is obviously different but the pattern produces a scaled down similar result – obviously you get the point… Ask yourself how does this pattern operate in your life today? Are you always trying to get somewhere other than where you are today? Are you doing this so that you can finally be happy? Don’t judge yourself, just observe.

Despite what the ism’s and religions say, all unhappiness is caused by denial of the present. However, we think our unhappiness and problems are caused by the situation in our life, whereas our attachment to the past, and future, and denial of the now is the real problem. Ultimately there is actually only one problem in life, which is not living in the now.

It is impossible to be unhappy and fully present now. Therefore if you see an unhappy person, or if when you are unhappy then you are at best only semi-present, and more likely you are unconscious. Basically it is impossible to have a problem when your attention is in the now. Please Login or REGISTER to read the rest of this content.
