Here and Now

Do you live

in the here and now?


you are constantly thinking

about things in the past,

about things in the future.

What you said yesterday,

what somebody told you the day before yesterday,

the good and bad that happened in your life,

what you going to do tomorrow,

what other people should be doing the day after tomorrow.

Being sad or happy

about what happened in the past,

being anxious or looking forward

to what might happen in the future.

There is nothing you do the change the past,

it is over, it is done,

you learn from it.

The future is outside your reach,

you create, plan, organize

to make future things happen.

But then,

let it all go.

Be in the here and now.

Do not hold on to the past,

do not obsess about the future.

Life is to be experienced in the present,

why fill it up

with old records playing over and over again,

or constant worries and fear about a possible future

that might or might not happen?

Learn from the past,

and plan ahead for the future,

but fill the here and now

with your clear presence.

When you are in the here and now,

just being your self,

the whole world opens up,

no regrets, no worries are present,

only you

 and the ever flowing river of life

with all its possibilities and expressions,

and out of the depths of being,

joy of life bubbles up

and dispels anything

that is in the way

of your true happiness.



About Cosmick Traveler

I am a life long spiritual seeker, exploring the mysteries of man, life, and the universe. I had many mystical experiences during my life. There is nothing spectacular about them. These experiences are often unexpected, and lie outside what we have been told is possible. They served to learn about the Greater Reality, that part of reality that is not talked about in school, government or corporation. Nevertheless it is very real, and a part of being human on this planet. I have studied many different doctrines and teachings, both esoteric and scientific. I have learned to see the common essence in all these disciplines, and the many connections between them. I have found that many people have spiritual, mystical or just unusual experiences they never talk about because of the many taboos this society has about certain subjects. However when they encounter someone they see they can trust they open up. It is time now for people to talk openly, and not to fear ridicule. I see it as my task to write about all these subjects and experiences that can enrich a person's life. Exchanging ideas, opinions, beliefs and experiences will bring us together and we will realize that we are not different from each other. It does not matter where you live on the earth, or what your cultural background is. If we pay attention to our humanness, then we can create a better world for all of us.
