How to live in the present moment

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Taking a break and doing a bit of reading, I came across this, from the famous book I AM THAT.

It’s a kind of beautiful summary of what the “Live in the Moment” chapter of Happy Guide is about.

Interestingly, he repeats over and over in the book, that all one need do is enquire “Who am I?” or simply go to the feeling “I AM.”

This is where you get to by using the Happy Guide method of “listening” and then paying full attention to your doing, your flow. It took him only 3 years of dedication to “I AM” to realize the truth, as outlined below…

A quiet mind is all you need

“When the mind is kept away from its preoccupations, it becomes quiet. If you do not disturb this quiet and stay in it, you find that it is permeated with a light and a love you have never known; and yet you recognize it at once as your own nature.

Once you have passed through this experience, you will never be the same man again; the unruly mind may break its peace and obliterate its vision; but it is bound to return, provided the effort is sustained; until the day when all bonds are broken, delusions and attachments end and life becomes supremely concentrated in the present.”
— Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, I AM THAT
