Love cannot exist anywhere in my life if I do not love the present moment—this ongoing, uninterrupted, eternal holy instant.
If I am here but want to be there, or if I am longing for the past or hoping for the future, I am withdrawing my attention from the field where all of life exists—the only place it ever has been or ever will be.
Right now, so many people are suffering because of a thought system that is having them resist or reject life now. Because the current state of the world is deemed less than ideal, they are withdrawing into the dream of a better future. I assure you it does not exist.
What does exist is now. How can you love yourself now, then extend that love to everything and everyone in your field of awareness? Do you not feel yourself awakening? Stay there. Keep going. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
