What is time without a past or future? Only the belief in time makes a past or future exists as
an idea. Yet past or future is only experienced right here and now as a thought, an image, a
hope, a fear. Practically time is great, psychologically it creates havoc. The belief in time, especially the future, is a dilemma we all face in this world of demands,deadlines, etc. Most of us do have this belief that the future holds more importance than anything else, the hope that all shall be fixed at a certain point in the future, some existing issues shall be resolved then.

We may be living each day missing out on what is essential to what the next moment holds for us. Our state of being, our inner state of consciousness holds the key on how the next moment unfolds. If we are conflicted within at this moment, then our next moment shall also be experienced the identical way, conflict within and experienced also on the external. Our bodies do not understand anything else but the present while our minds keep on going on what to do next, this inner conflict between the body and mind belief causes stress, which has tremendous repercussions on the body as the conflict within progresses moment to moment.

Most of our internal diseases is due to this inner conflict thus the experience of unpleasantness is very apparent in most people’s lives.  Once we eliminate the belief in psychological time, the mind and body shall harmonize and the wellbeing of the person shall flower. Otherwise we may be continually experiencing unpleasantness in some form and this becomes a normal way of living. And since this way of living is socially accepted as a norm, meditation is seen as something out of the norm yet it holds the key to a lot of self-healing that can happen physically and emotionally.

Take a moment and ask yourself whether we are really pleasant at all moments or is the sense of unpleasantness more prevalent in our lives. We need to take steps in order for us to live in this magnificent and wondrous world and enjoy this gift of life that we are experiencing at every moment.

These thoughts come in effortlessly.” His aim is in a way to reach out to whoever gets inspired or has an eye opening event within them that may transcend their current state of consciousness. “Or let’s say current emotional state too. If one in a thousand benefits, that is already great.”

Due to the current world state, lots of struggles and stresses, we seem to lose touch with that inner peace that we long for, Suresh explains. “I wish to ease that through these small articles or tidbits.” You will find his tidbits in Aruba Today from now on, like a sunray of the day.
