Having A Peak Experience By Living In The Present Moment

Having a peak experience seems to occur in the time-free zone of present moment awareness, a transcendent glorious moment that is the substance of real miracles.

To be in the moment is of complete bliss and elation. These instants where time does not seem to tick are extraordinary and often compared to spiritual awakening events.

The truth of real miracles can not join us anywhere in the future or past, because neither exists. Only in our separated and fragmenting, dream of life, where we depend on time and material form, are future and past a thought.

Present Moment Awareness

The glorious moment of eternal oneness has no clue of any such awareness between future and past. The past is only what you thought it was, and the future is only what you think it might be.

Both are unreal.

Anything real can only be here, the glorious moment of now, in this instant, and then it is gone, and a brand new instant is immediately born.

Think about a glorious moment you’ve had when you had no thoughts of future or past, such as those timeless moments during sex, or dancing, or total engagement in joyous, thoughtless “flow”- type activity. Yes, real miracles!

We all have had a peak experience, or we may say, peak-level moments, a glorious moment without any influence of regretting the past or predicting the future.

Being in the Moment

In this particular writing session my goal was to be in the moment, living in the moment that began at 5:30 AM and it’s now 7 AM, an instant in reality where clock-time has no meaning.

Sure, there was some unpleasant as well as pleasant background interference of the early morning– a car with a bad muffler, a neighborhood dog, birds in the park across the street singing, as the sun rising, but it was nothing that could interfere with my present moment awareness, or my mission at hand during the instant of real time, which is no-time.

Only in these instants, when you are determined to see the ego for the nothingness it is, will you accept the Holy Spirit–your inner divine Guide, as the presence of your mind that exists only in the glorious moment of, the now.

Real Miracles

The Course in Miracles asks us, “How long is an instant?”

In this present moment awareness it’s the length of time it takes you to choose, and live inside, the Holy Spirit’s right-minded thought process, over the wrong-mindedness of the ego always plagued with guilt.

In these instants you meet your own holiness.

Course in Miracles further teaches us that, “Each instant is a crystal and clean clear, untarnished new birth of thought, and is your glimpse of eternity.”

The glorious moment of eternity never sees the past or touches the future, but is always in this instant, or we may say, now.

It’s in the holy instant where thoughts of past and future are not alive to keep you from a peak experience.

When an impure thought strikes you, in that instant ask the Holy Spirit to replace it with pure, right-mindedness. He will never fail in delivering this to you as a holy instant.

When you act from within the holy instant real miracles become an everyday way of life.

To living in the present moment!
