What’s it like to be “In the Now?” What gets in the way of being present with the experience of Spirit? This workshop explores the answers to these questions and how we can bring ourselves back when we’re pulled into the stress, anxiety, judgment, or hurt of the past or the future.
“Attempting to live in the past can produce depression; attempting to live in the future can produce anxiety. Both are frustrating because you cannot complete physical action in either the past or the future. Expression in both is limited; it leads to neurotic behavior because completion is impossible. Live now and the frustration goes. Live now and your behavior becomes appropriate to the moment.”
“If you stay present in your life, moment to moment, joy will start to appear inside of you, as you. If you allow anything to pull you away from the moment, into last night or into tomorrow, you start to feel an ambivalence inside of you. If you start trying to control the past, make it something it was not, change it in some way to make it more advantageous to you, you’ll lose. If you just say, “Yes, that happened. That was so. Those things took place,” a warmth will start to appear in you. That warmth is the joy, the presence of Spirit.”
John Morton is scheduled to participate in person.
