9b: Living in the moment is more than a catch phrase; it is an amazing experience that expands consciousness. Things look different, feel different, taste different as if one has entered a brand new universe of sight and sound. This experience is always available, 24/7, but rarely tapped. One must learn how to recognize this reality of here and now, and then practice letting go of all the extraneous thoughts that cloud our normative experience. Yet, as we move more closely to God Consciousness, knowing how to live in the here and now, even momentarily, is a mandatory prerequisite.
