“God will guide you, because everything you ever experienced or will experience is in the here and now. The world is being created and destroyed in this very moment. Whoever you met will reappear, whoever you lost will return. Don’t betray the grace that was bestowed upon you. Understand what is going on inside you and you will understand what is going on inside everyone else.” – Aleph by Paulo Coelho
I liked that! So many little things wrapped up in one quote!
Everything we do experience is in the here and now … not in the past (which is done!) and not in the future (which we cannot ‘see’ or ‘know’). Yet we never give any importance to what is happening ‘now’ 🙂 we look behind, we look ahead but we forget to live now!
A lot of the holistic healing techniques or even meditations concentrate on teaching us on seeing and understanding what is going on inside us. We always try to analyze others, try to figure out their ‘motives’ … but rarely do we sit and reflect inside ourselves. The key to understanding or obtaining peace lies inside us, within us, in our deepest depths. Once we begin to understand who we are, what we are, only then will we actually begin to understand the world around us! 🙂
