Now is Never
We only experience the transition or movement of states, but we may never experience the current state. Movement is the code of time and space and all that we can perceive here.
Now is a moment between memory and speculation. It exists in a space that is nonexistent. There is no time for now because all of the movement, which is time itself, will not stop in it’s path to rest a moment to allow there to be such a thing as now. We are always becoming warmer or colder, older, taller, more tired, more energized, richer or poorer, happier or sadder, etc. So, as much as we want to “be”, we can only “become” and all of the things/ideas we attach ourselves to will always come into reach for some time before going back out of reach at varying frequencies. The moment when that attachment is halfway out the door feels completely different than the moment when that attachment is halfway in the door, even though, in that moment the state is the same, it is only the motion, the energy of the current state, that is relevant to our perception. It is our attachments that create resistance to the motion which is interpreted as pain, fear and stress.
