“It is through gratitude for the present moment that the spiritual dimension of life opens up.” –Eckhart Tolle
I happened to see this quote among others related to spirituality, and it really grabbed my attention. Was I really conscious of the present moment at those times when the spiritual realm has opened up for me?
And in thinking back to different times of satori and sudden insight, I realize that, yes, spiritual events and states of awakening are always when I am temporarily free of thoughts and emotions and, instead, are when I am most fully in the present moment – whether that moment lasted for seconds or hours.
With love and gratitude in the present moment, RP
