Live in the Moment – Now is All There Is


Ocean of Emotion - Upperworld of Wisdom

—Octilogy (Chapter 13, page 287)

“You must learn to live in the moment,” Metamorphosis, Sage of the Ages told Hunter Wainright.

“You shall know this magic feeling when you stop worrying about past things and future events, when you stop being attached to outcomes.”

“You mean, like getting back home as soon as possible?” Hunter asked.

“Yes. Simply focus on the task at hand, this moment.

“Just be. There is no time but this time, this moment.

“There is nothing else to think about but now. The past and the future are merely illusions within your mind.

“They exist because you create them in your imagination.

“You imagine the past and future, but they do not exist outside the now.

“Nothing, no thing, exists outside this present moment.

“The choice is yours, either seize the moment or focus your thoughts somewhere else and suffer the consequences.”

“I’m not suffering.” Hunter closed his eyes and bit his lip.

“Suffering seems to be a human condition.

“Instead of living in the present moment, humans choose to live in the past, or spend their time dreaming of their future.

“Your lives are spent anxiously waiting for that right time to make something happen…some thing that will supposedly bring you instant happiness.

“Then, you never obtain happiness when the future does finally arrive.

“Why? Because happiness is only available right here, right now, in this moment.”

Hunter stopped biting his lip and sighed, admiring the sage’s calm demeanor.


“As for time, you humans ask yourselves, ‘Where did my life go? Where did the time go?’

“You fail to realize that you spent all of your time dreaming about your future, or, even worse…thinking negative thoughts about your past…living in the past.

“Remember, a tree grows from a seedling. A tower starts with one brick.

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.

“Enormous projects seem small when you begin small, one step at a time.

“Whatever the task, simply begin from right here, right now.

“Everything is possible from here because now is all there is. Do not worry about the result.

“There is always a new journey awaiting you. There is a time for everything. To everything, turn, turn, turn.

“Just as you breathe in and breathe out, there is a time to be ahead and a time for being behind…a time for being in motion and a time for being at rest…a time for being vigorous and time for being exhausted…a time for being safe and a time for being in danger.

“Live in the moment and free yourself from the chase. Stop striving for more and searching for something better.

“You already have everything you need to be completely happy, right here, right now.”

The sage handed Eve an alligator pear and added, “There is no time, only the eternal moment of now.”

“I think I’m beginning to understand time,” Hunter said, grinning at the Sage of the Ages.
