17 – This moment is yours for all eternity

This moment is yours for all eternity. Embrace it...

This afternoon, with the sun back out, I sat outside soaking in all that was around me.

I realized at one point that I would never get this moment back. It was gone forever. I would never again experience what I just felt and see what I just saw the way I saw it. I would never again sit in this untouched land and be able to immerse myself within it this way. Every moment is the last time we ever get to experience it...

This is what I wrote in my journal about that particular moment... 

"I find myself trying to find words to describe the peace of this moment, until I just realized, you cannot. As soon as you apply words to it, you have attached conceptual thought to it. Not that that's wrong or bad. But that inevitably creates a divide between the pure experience and you as the experiencer of it, as opposed to them both being one...

That's why words cannot be attached onto this and must not. This can only be felt, be known, be experienced. For in that experience, when thought is shut off, with it goes all constructs and conceptual mind, and you become one with all that is.

Let it all go. All thought. All constructs. And just feel Antarctica. Feel this untouched land. Know it. Hear it. What is it saying to you? Don't listen with your ears. Listen with your soul..."

I then found myself trying hard to hear some sort of deep, profound knowledge in a moment, as I sometimes have heard before. I wanted something to strike me, some words of wisdom.

But this time I didn't hear anything. This time I just was. Perhaps this time, that's exactly how it was meant to be...
