Living Miraculously in The Eternal Now
Jason Chan’s New Year Message 2018
As another year comes to a close, 7 billion people on our planet are hoping and praying that their future will be better than their past. Many of them are probably fantasising that in 2018 they will be become richer, healthier, happier, or more in love than they were in 2017. But in fact, none of us can live in the future. We can only truly live in an ‘eternal now’ that lies beyond time and space.
But to live in this miraculous eternal moment, we first need to cultivate supreme mindfulness in order to stop our lower mind wandering off into regrets about the past or worries about the future.
If you observe your own lower mind carefully for a while, you will notice that it is always indulging in fearful, ‘What if?’ thoughts such as, ‘What if war breaks out between the USA and North Korea in 2018?’, ‘What if that pain in my back gets worse?’, ‘What if my partner tells me that they do not love me anymore?
When we do this, we are actually bringing negative memories from our past and projecting them into the future. For example, once we have a memory of being abused, abandoned or betrayed by a loved one, we project that memory into the future and become afraid that we are going to experience that emotional pain once again. We make up a fearful future for ourselves based on our painful past experiences.
Your core problem in life is therefore not what is going on in the world around you, but the fact that your essence, or your soul, has been affected by such fear and is now trapped in a dark, fearful, guilt-ridden state of consciousness that then gets projected outwards to create a painful dream-life year after year. True healing is all about releasing the pain of your soul, so that it can finally dwell in nothing but love and peace, moment-to-moment. But before you can embark on this challenging healing journey, you have to commit to building up your spiritual strength by raising your energetic vibration and learning to connect to a powerful higher light that can heal absolutely everything.
Yes, this takes time, effort, courage and some patience. However, this deep soul-healing is the only way in which we can create a truly miraculous future for ourselves.
By raising your consciousness and vibration a little higher on a daily basis – for example by practising the Infinite Arts – you will begin to heal your painful past much more quickly than an individual stuck at a relatively low level of consciousness.
As your consciousness expands, as painful past experiences dissolve, you will also realise that in ultimate truth, linear time is just another illusion. When you are in a higher state of consciousness, there is no time, just an eternal moment that covers both the past and the future. Once you can connect to this eternal moment, you can use a higher consciousness – connected to a universal wisdom and higher light – to create a miraculous future for yourself. For example, when I am in this state of consciousness, I know that my future abundance and fulfilment is assured.
Many people constantly worry that they will be worse off in the future than they are now, so this is what they experience, because this world that seems so real to us is just a projection of the content of our minds!
Most people have no idea that whenever they worry about the future, they are basically sabotaging their future happiness. They are actually being cruel to themselves! Please do not go on being so mean to yourself in 2018. Decide here and now that you are going to release fearful thoughts about your future that you notice rising up in your mind. Or, whenever you notice that your mind has wandered off into a negative fantasy about the future, just pause, take one or two deep relaxing breaths, and lovingly pull your mind back to the present moment. This is how to start creating that better future for yourself.
Once you have learnt how to dwell in a higher level of consciousness that is connected to divine love, light and wisdom, your future will naturally unfold perfectly for your highest good and for the highest good of all your loved ones. Eternal life itself is always longing to flow through you and to guide you perfectly through this life you are dreaming.
Wishful thinking and powerless praying for a better future, without being willing to change our own mind and to heal our own stored inner pain and darkness, simply will not work. But if we do commit to removing negative past programming from our minds, and refusing to worry about the future, we can begin to live truly fulfilling lives. If we also practise opening our hearts to divine love moment-to-moment, we start to live an exceptionally loving and joyful life, regardless of what is happening in the world around us.
So whatever happens on our planet in 2018, may you find the strength and courage to begin to heal your negative programming and to refuse to allow your lower, fearful mind to tempt you to worry about the future. I pray that you will commit to doing this on a daily basis so that you can dwell in love, peace and joy in every miraculous moment of 2018!
Happy New Year!
