The Key To The Spiritual Dimension


The Key To The Spiritual Dimension



the present moment eckhart tolleIn life-threatening emergency situations, the shift in consciousness from
time to presence sometimes happens naturally. The personality that has a
past and a future momentarily recedes and is replaced by an intense
conscious presence, very still but very alert at the same time. Whatever
response is needed then arises out of that state of consciousness.

The reason why some people love to engage in dangerous activities, such as
mountain climbing, car racing, and so on, although they may not be aware
of it, is that it forces them into the Now - that intensely alive state
that is free of time, free of problems, free of thinking, free of the
burden of the personality.

Slipping away from the present moment even for a second may mean death. Unfortunately, they come to depend on
a particular activity to be in that state. But you don't need to climb
the north face of the Eiger. You can enter that state now.

Since ancient times, spiritual masters of all traditions have pointed to the
Now as the key to the spiritual dimension. Despite this, it seems to
have remained a secret. It is certainly not taught in churches and
temples.

If you go to a church, you may hear readings from the Gospels such as "Take no thought for the morrow; for the morrow shall
take thought for the things of itself," or "Nobody who puts his hands to
the plow and looks back is fit for the Kingdom of God."

Or you might hear the passage about the beautiful flowers that are not anxious
about tomorrow but live with ease in the timeless Now and are provided
for abundantly by God. The depth and radical nature of these teachings
are not recognized. No one seems to realize that they are meant to be
lived and so bring about a profound inner transformation.
