(Distinctions are subtleties of language that, when gotten, cause a shift in a belief, behavior, value or attitude.)


There are only two units of time, Now and Not-Now.

You may want to argue with this and describe the reality of tomorrow and next year or of yesterday and long ago. But Now is the only real time, the rest are mental constructs. They exist only in your mind.

You may visit Not-Now to remember past experiences. And you may want to visit the Not-Now of the future to goal-set or plan. Both are useful. But let go of believing that Not-Now is real.

The issue of this is that few people really live in Now. Feeling regrets? Not-Now. Feeling fear? Not-Now. Feeling appreciation? Now.

Artists create in Now. Love is experienced in Now. Full information and guidance is available in Now.

When you look at where you really spend your time you may be amazed to discover you are rarely in Now. Try asking why that is so, learn what pulls you out of Now, resolve the blocks, beliefs, or habits, and then enjoy the magnificence of the vastness of Now.
