ERIC RAINES: “The Importance of Now”

“One of the most powerful things you can do as a reality co-creator, is to exist in the eternal NOW. Move through each moment of your life as if you were a child experiencing everything for the first time. See things as they are, not with what previous biases say that they are. Look for the magical shapes and faces inside of the clouds instead of labeling them ‘clouds’. Look for the mystery in the way the trees move and are guided along through divine patterning instead of just walking next to the ‘trees’. Experience the wonder of a child, truly embedded in the NOW.”

~Eric Raines

 

In the scientific and Spiritual communities, it is fairly common knowledge that time truly does not exist. Time has been manipulated into a single flow of point A to point B, instead of the all encompassing essence of the infinite, or the eternal NOW. What most have not been able to grasp, is that simply by existing inside of time and accepting it as fundamental in how your reality functions, you are opening yourself up to multiple access points.

One of the most powerful things you can do as a reality co-creator, is to exist in the eternal NOW. Move through each moment of your life as if you were a child experiencing everything for the first time. See things as they are, not with what previous biases say that they are. Look for the magical shapes and faces inside of the clouds instead of labeling them “clouds”. Look for the mystery in the way the trees move and are guided along through divine patterning instead of just walking next to the “trees”. Experience the wonder of a child, truly embedded in the NOW.

It is only when we step into time, once we cross over into the adult world of work, bills, and increasing pressures, does time begin to hold sway. The age old adage of “Once you turn 18, time just goes faster and faster.” explains everything. As a child, 5 minutes can feel like a half hour or sometimes even longer, simply because we have no other worries than doing exactly what we are doing right then and there. It is only when we are older and have time limits and deadlines that we impose on ourselves every day does time begin to infect our consciousness. This is the fundamental barrier between the childhood consciousness where everything is possible and magic is only around the corner, to the fully sterile, sanitized, compartmentalized and fractured “adult” mentality

In a place of frantic rushing, we cannot find stillness.

In a place of worry outside of the now (fear of the future, regret of the past), we cannot find peace.

In a place of rigidity, we cannot enjoy the flow.

In a place of hate, we cannot find a smile

In a place of closemindedness, we cannot understand the deeper nature of what is real and what is not.

By stepping into the NOW, by experiencing THIS MOMENT as fully as possible, you automatically phase out the list above. In the NOW as fully as possible, there is no frantic rushing. There is no place to be other than right here, right now, thus the term “late” does not even exist. Focus on what you have control over in the moment. If you are “late”, turning yourself into an emotional and energetic nuclear explosion serves nothing but the entities that are feeding on that resonance. Breathe. You will arrive when you arrive.

By stepping into the NOW, there is no past, there is no future, there is only direct 5D experience. Fear of what is coming and regret at what has been cannot exist, simply because the direct experience of the NOW, with 100% of your focus firmly placed there is all there is. There is no time to worry, because you are outside of time.

By stepping into the NOW, we immerse ourselves in the experience. Completely immersed in the moment means that you are directly dialed into the nuances of the experience, completely in tune, yet not micro-managing the event….completely in sync, yet not directing. This allows for simul-flow, or direct reaction to the NOW without thought or intention….it is a state of just being. In this state, true physical magic is possible.

By stepping into the NOW, there is no place for grudges or building resentments. In the now, you are in a constant state of shifting to accommodate the container (water flows into the teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water flows into the cup, it becomes the cup). If there was emotional friction in one moment, in the next moment there is only cooperation because there is no past in the NOW. With no preconceived biases or stereotypes, we meet each other as people, not categories. People are naturally generous, happy, compassionate and loving….when they stem from the NOW.

By stepping into the NOW, there is no trying to fit the situation into your understanding of how things are. By stepping into the NOW, you see things for what they truly are, not what your belief system dictates is real. This by far is the most important thing you can do for yourself while in this reality. By releasing the agreements that the collective consciousness has imposed on our reality, we can then see into the heart of this Matrix. By becoming aware of the parasitic construct, we now have the power to do something about it. Energy flows where attention goes, and the parasitic construct has more light and attention on it right now than ever before.

Stay in the NOW dear ones. Breathe. Experience fully. Observe in wonder. Spark the inner child back to life. We got this

From my heart to yours,
Eric

FRACTAL ENLIGHTENMENT: “5 Signs You are Complicating Your Life”

Life is complicated. Relationships are complicated. Friendships are complicated. Life choices are complicated. Or are they? Is it possible that our excessive need to complicate life is just merely giving us something to do?

In our utter and complete fear of being bored are we perhaps overcomplicating every single thing in our life for the mere fact that it just gives us something to think about incessantly, or to complain about to our friends, or to distract ourselves from ourselves?

Could it be that our fragile little egos claim they want happiness, and inner peace, and simplicity from life situations but deep down are deathly afraid of this because in order to have true happiness and simple joy and uncomplicated relationships with others would mean the death of a majority of the jibber-jabber mind chatter that our ego spews out all day long?

Without over-thinking, worrying, complaining, and complicating everything to the point that we overanalyze every single situation the ego would lose 90% of its hold on us.

Our true self thrives in simplicity, in fact it is simplicity. It knows that anything outside of simplicity is merely our ego or false self begging for our attention.

As long as it has our attention we won’t pay attention to what is real and true… which is that we don’t need to spend so much time thinking about how we can go about achieving happiness. We already are happiness. We don’t need to spend all our time trying to get love from another person, we already are love.

As long as the ego can overcomplicate every situation to the point that we don’t see that all is well and perfect, it has already won. But the reality of the situation is, it doesn’t have to be this way.

As Confucius said, “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”

Here are five ways you may be making your life more complicated than it needs to be:

1) You live in your head too much

Our minds are constantly trying to make sense of everything. They are going over every single “what if?”, “why did they do that?”, “what does this all mean?” so much so that they forget that all of life is happening in the present moment.

Literally only this present moment exists. So mulling over past conversations, or stressing about future events literally just drives us mad. We spend hours playing out scenarios in our head that have never happened and may or may not ever happen. We overthink everything that we are completely disconnected from what is real and the beauty of experiencing the present moment when it actually happens… in the present moment.

2) You want to make everyone happy all the time

Trying to please everyone might work every once in a while, but most of the time it will be an impossible feat. In order to please one person, it is inevitable that you will upset another person to some extent.

There will be times when everyone in your life is going to have their own opinion on how you should live yours, so trying to satisfy them all would be undoable. How about you just do what makes you happy?

Yes some people will have something to say, or may be disappointed, but this is your life right? Once people in your life catch on that you have made yourself your first priority, they will be less inclined to ask you to go out of your way just to please them.

Also, they won’t be so shocked when you tell them “no” instead of desperately trying to prevent them from being upset by just doing exactly what they tell you to.

3) You believe your perception of life is the absolute truth

Here’s a secret: Your perception does not equal truth, it only means just that… YOUR perception. So the cashier at the store isn’t necessarily a rude witch, just because you perceived her that way. Did it occur to you that maybe she is dealing with a problem in her personal life? And the girl/guy you went on a date with isn’t necessarily an insensitive jerk.

Maybe they’ve had a really difficult childhood and they don’t know how to open up to people very easily. Regardless of the situation, we must realize that there are always two sides to every coin.

When we stop convincing ourselves and others that we know exactly what is going on in other people’s heads and why they act the way they do, we stop wasting so much time judging, complaining and criticizing others.

We simply see things and people as they are, without imposing our own little story on them which may or may not be anywhere near the actual truth.

4) You don’t trust that there is a higher intelligence at work

Whether you call it the universe, or God, or Source, or the all that is, there is a force that is working behind the scenes in every single aspect of our lives. There is never a moment that we are separate from its presence because in all actuality we come from it, meaning we ARE it, just a tiny little slice of it.

Our feeble little minds can’t comprehend this, so because of that we try to make our own plans and agendas on how things in our life will go. News flash: things rarely go the way we thought they would, right?

This is because the higher intelligence knows what’s best for us, even though we are convinced we know. The higher intelligence sees a bigger picture, it knows the reason your car wouldn’t start today was because there was going to be huge collision on the highway right when you would have been driving on it.

Accept and surrender to whatever it brings to you or brings you to. It is always giving you exactly what you need in any given moment, your only assignment is to: TRUST

5) You’re not honest with yourself

This is a big one and actually a lot harder than it seems mainly because so many of us hide ourselves from ourselves so much that we don’t even know what the truth is anymore. Believe it or not a lot of people are comfortable in their misery. They have become so accustomed to it that the mere thought of not having something to be miserable about sounds like the scariest thing ever. So they fool themselves.
admire the simple beauty in life
They rationalize, justify, and make excuses of why they still need to work at the job that they feel sucks the soul out of them, or they need to continue to cling on to an addiction of whatever the object of their desire is.

As long as they can evade actually being honest with themselves, which 9 times out of 10 is that they are afraid, they can stay comfortably unhappy. This for some reason sounds better than simply admitting that whoever or whatever or wherever is never going to bring them any closer to the happiness they claim they want.

Life really doesn’t need to be hard. In fact, when we start to simplify it we realize that the simple life is where true joy and happiness actually lives. We take things and people at face value. We trust the process of life and don’t overanalyze everyone and everything. So, if you do anything, do this… keep it simple.

A lot of people are living proof of how they can be captured in the claws of the past. Signs which show that you are living in the past are many, but you need to be strong enough to recognize them.

Here are actions you should use in order to live in the present.

1. Don’t escape the moment

Life is a battle, trying not to face with the reality will cause you bigger problems. Facing the fear will hell you to overcome it. After dealing with every issue, you will be stronger as a person, and you will appreciate every minute spent in the present.

2. Embrace your pain

Everything that life serves to us, is served with a reason. You should embrace that and move on. Pain and suffrage are part of life, and we cannot avoid them. They makes us stronger, and enrich us with experience.

3. Ground yourself

No matter what your problem is, you need to stay grounded. In order to achieve this you can go outside, put your arms on tree, focus, and feel the object, analyze what you are hearing and feeling. You are here now, and there is no other place that you need to be.

4. Project a better future

What you are surviving now, will make you a stronger and smarter person. You deserve a better future, so with new experiences you are capable enough, to reconstruct your project for your future. Don’t be anxious, make your dreams become reality.

5. Remember what didn’t go wrong

Experience is the best thing that you can get from your past. Learn from the mistakes, and try not to copy them in the present. Think before you act, and you will build your life as if it was an empire.

6. Welcome new joys

You need to get free from the claws of the past, and let happiness to enter in your soul. You should give yourself another chance, and move on with your life. Live your life fully, for yourself and for the people around you.

7. Make necessary changes

Changes will make you to stay in present, not to lose yourself, and to stay focused. Eliminate the fear from new things, change your job, your home, meet new friends. Break the monotony down.

Once you do this, you will see how all of the pieces in your life are getting into their place. And it is really satisfying to watch, believe me.
