The Present Moment

                                                                 painting by Dilip Parikh

The present moment 

 Being at peace, my mind and soul
 guide  to  accept,  enthuse,  enjoy

Accepting all and evenly so
As the humble one says, “Let it be so.”

 Enjoyment streams, flows from within
Wakeful and free with internal mean

 Enthusiasm, a visionary force
Pulsating, renewing, the energy source

 The ego entices with delusory dreams
The string of stress chokes innocence

 The smooth surrender and positive presence
Aware, this moment is gifting the present


Inspired by Eckhart Tolle’s writing: The consciousness can flow into every day life; Accaptance, enjoyment, enthusiasm.

    It follows from Albert Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity that there is no such thing as absolute simultaneity. When care is taken to operationalise “the present”, it follows that the events that can be labeled as “simultaneous” with a given event, can not be in direct cause-effect relationship. Such collections of events are perceived differently by different observers. Instead, when focusing on “now” as the events perceived directly, not as a recollection or a speculation, for a given observer “now” takes the form of the observer’s past light cone. The light cone of a given event is objectively defined as the collection of events in causal relationship to that event, but each event has a different associated light cone. One has to conclude that in relativistic models of physics there is no place for “the present” as an absolute element of reality. Einstein phrased this as: “People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion”.
