I had a satisfying experience in the Uni library today. I was reading Quadrant magazine on the first floor and when I put the magazine down I looked out the window at the tall green birch trees and I started to slip into the now.
I was a little surprised and pulled back and started reading Quadrant again but then I put the magazine down and let now come to me.
I didn't have to do anything only let now come. And the more I paid attention to now the bigger it grew.
And everything around me started to be now.
I was relaxed and interested. And it was quite pleasurable so I went downstairs and had a Korean meal, still remaining in the now.
A phrase kept recurring to my mind and it was, "harvesting the now".
It was as though there was no need for me to do any planting - the now was already there - ready for the harvest - the harvest of now.
I thought it was a bit like harvesting wild rice - harvesting the now.
