In general people experience their present naively, as it were, without being able to form an estimate of its contents; they have first to put themselves at a distance from it - the present, that is to say, must have become the past - before it can yield points of vantage from which to judge the future.
The following has been revealed to me: This is not the end. This is not the beginning of the end. It is merely the end of the beginning. Something big is coming but it is not the end. It is merely another in a series of transitions humanity has and will continue to face.
If we are to contribute to the changes so desperately needed in our agencies, communities, and societies, we must first and foremost develop the capacity to be present with all that arises, stay centered throughout, and be skilled at maintaining an integrated self.

The instant experience of the present, right now and here, as it is, for your mind, energy and body, are many, and each is operating in a different state of awareness and dimension of time. The present of your mind is far away from the time of here and started beyond the time your remember, in a time that is ever lasting and always there. The present of your energy is actively in a time you can perceive, beyond the vision of the world in this time, and is replicated at each dimension you are manifested or related. The present of your body, is an experience of your senses, limited to the infinite potentiality of a body that exists beyond time. The instant experience of all dimensions of time, is available here and now, through every cell you experience and nourish with life.
