The Present Moment as Doorway to Consciousness Expansion, Part 1

“Who are you within this moment? Are you limited to what you see in front of you, or do you hold within your consciousness a vast repertoire of possibilities you can activate at any second? Do you hold within you maps of consciousness that point to infinite locations and states you can access at will? Do you feel your past (in this life and others) is inaccessible or do you feel connected to these past aspects and even assisted and supported by them? Are you able to travel through the doorway of your imagination to visit your future and learn what you’re creating in order to fine-tune your present moment?”

Your Last Battle on Earth

“If you don’t think your life is going to last forever, what are you waiting for? Why the hesitation to change? You don’t have time for this display, you fool. This, whatever you’re doing now, may be your last act on the Earth. It may very well be your last battle. If this were your last battle on the Earth, I would say that you are an idiot. You are wasting your last act on the Earth in some stupid mood! You have no time, my friend, no time! None of us have time! Don’t just agree with me. Act upon it…

Focus your attention on the link between you and your death, without remorse or sadness or worrying. Focus your attention on the fact you don’t have time and let your acts flow accordingly. Let each of your acts be your last battle on the Earth! Only under those conditions will your acts have their rightful power. Otherwise, they will be, for as long as you live, the acts of a timid man.” ~Don Juan, “The Journey to Ixtlan”

Inner Space

“Fear arises through identification with form, whether it be a material possession, a physical body, a social role, a self-image, a thought, or an emotion. It arises through unawareness of the formless inner dimension of consciousness or spirit, which is the essence of who you are. You are trapped in object consciousness, unaware of the dimension of inner space which alone is true freedom.” ~Eckhart Tolle
