Now

Cape Reinga, New Zealand

If we are "on the path" to awakening, our awakening will never come. The future does not exist, except as a mental construct. Tomorrow never arrives. Only the present moment is real. If we do not awaken now, we will never awaken. Our lives are a reflection of our present thoughts and beliefs. Believing we are "on the path" reinforces our never arriving. We will always be "on the path."

We can only awaken right now, this very moment. It is not something that we can work towards. It is not something that we can achieve in the future. Practice is not going to help us to awaken. It is now or never. The past is dead. The future is an illusion.

Let's awaken now.
