The present is an idea whose time has come.

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. I laugh at the beautiful irony of the Universe. The last meditation posed the question “Where are WE?. And in a delightful followup, the next day’s meditation responds – “The Present”. With that realization the questioning begins, what does the present mean to you? How do you include yourself in the present? Do you make your being a gift to be experienced or do you hold yourself a puzzle to solve?

    The question that comes to me after this meditation is “What is TIME?” for I find that depending on how TIME moves you, will depend on how time moves for you. Does the passage of TIME hang heavy over your head or do you eagerly lap up every moment time willingly gives your way? Is this moment a gift to be received or a problem to solve?


  2. Even better is the realization that even when the answer is “a problem to solve” still there is a way to find the truth that it is a “gift to be received”.
