The harder the moment is to bear, the greater the mastery when merging with it.Why merge with the moment?
For one, it dissolves resistance.
When I am not resisting life, I am more alive.
For another, when I merge personality with the Present Moment, I also merge with the Non-specific Void and the Substance of Space. What could be more spacious and expansive?
If a person still cringes or reacts at times, is defensive or critical, or acts on any 'separated' thought or emotion, they are not feeling one with the moment!
The merge must be felt and not just in the head to be real — and actions, not information or intention are what count. Merging the persona with the moment is the magic.
Whole Human writes realizations as they occur into blog posts and site pages to make the how-to of mastering the moment available to all.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
- MARCUS AURELIUS
