​The joyful surprise movements are designed as a way to feel and move Chi energy flow, improve circulation in the body, and deepen experiential connection with the divine nature. They are the core of the Present Moment Brocades.

Chi energy, known by other names in various cultures, is the life force which animates the body. It is associated with the breath, and can be considered bio-electricity, although it is much more.

​Your Chi may be moved by using your focused mind and breath. Regular practice deepens the experience. The Bubbling Wells are energy centers in the bottoms of the feet. Those and other terms used in the Present Moment Brocades can be understood by visiting the Whole Human web site.

PRESENT MOMENT BROCADES is a full set of Qigong. About an hour in length, it is timeless when practiced.

DANCE WITH THE DIVINE is a moving meditation portion from the P.M.B. It coordinates the movement of Chi, breath and body, and is about 15 minutes in length.

Both can be viewed as videos with scrolling text, online, and can be downloaded as audio and PDF files for offline listening and practicing. The PDF can be downloaded by clicking this link:


Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion.The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.
– Richard Conn Henry, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University
(quote taken from ‘The Mental Universe’)

….Quantum physicists discovered that physical atoms are made up of vortices of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating, each one radiating its own unique energy signature. – Conscious Reminder

The universe is not mechanical only, as supposed by Newtonian science, but neither is it mental only, as proposed by some new quantum mechanics/physics.

Richard Conn Henry, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Johns Hopkins University, does acknowledge the spiritual: ‘Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.’

Reader comments in response to above article on Conscious Reminder:

Michael J Ross
It will take some time for people to change their materialistic core beliefs.

Gary R Smith
Maybe, ‘It will take some time for people to change their materialistic core beliefs.’

But then, those beliefs hindered and long delayed the development of the electricity which is today part of our everyday lives.

There is a way to work and play joyfully with one’s own energy body, and when enough people practice, experience, and share it with natural enthusiasm, we will see the dawning of a new day.

A ‘Dance With the Divine’, the play with one’s own energy body, can be experienced by following this 20 minute video.

Will you give it a try, for yourself?

In my version, Present Moment Light pervades all and is the creative source behind even the mental thought.

Present Moment Light responds to humans whose hearts have a genuine hunger for union with the Divine, and can be experienced and known in the Present Moment Brocades, a dance with the Divine.

Know that you are encompassed by a sphere of light. 
See it in your mind, and feel it in your heart. 
The light of the Present Moment surrounds you, and is part of you. 
Hold that feeling, and be present to the Presence.

The present moment is timeless, and universal.
The present moment is boundless, and unconditioned.
The present moment is the observer, and witness of all things.
The present moment is everything that is, as it is.
The present moment is all embracing, and inclusive.
The present moment harmonizes, balances, and integrates.
The present moment is love; for love itself.
The present moment is universal Chi energy; the energy of space.
The present moment is the unified field, the unmoved mover, and the creative source.
The present moment is the spirit, and essence, and presence, of nature.
The spirit of nature seeks to re-unite with the human spirit.

​To experience your own energy body, and union with the Divine:

I am not a drop in the ocean,
I am the entire ocean in a drop.
– Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī

That to me means that the personality known as Gary is integrating with the Present Moment Light, and becoming who he really is.
