Okay, I'll confess that I enjoy watching (listening to) the teachings of Abraham Hicks on YouTube. And, yes, I know a lot of people have trouble with the whole 'channeling' thing.
Perhaps Shakespeare's Hamlet said it best:
"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
But, even if you look at the Abraham Hicks teachings as an investigation into the power of "living in the now" I believe they are important.
In Star Wars: Episode V - Yoda says these words referencing young Luke Skywalker:
"A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind. This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away... to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was doing. Hmph. Adventure. Heh. Excitement. Heh. A Jedi craves not these things. You are reckless..."
Back in 1971 Western-born yogi and spiritual teacher Ram Dass wrote a book entitled: "Be Here Now (or Remember, Be Here Now)." It was basically a meditation on the power (and value) of enjoying our "Point of Power" (Seth's early reference to the now through Jane Roberts).
The Zen monks teach the watching your breathe meditation with the same goal in mind. So apparently being mindful of the now is pretty important.
After all, the 'Now' is indeed --- eternity because all we ever have (and will ever have) is the Now.
Eckhart Tolle's teachings (which, in my opinion, are simply a rehash of Jiddu Krishnamurti's work) practically made a "religion" out of this concept.
(To take the Tolle work to the next level I strongly suggest reading Jiddu's writings).
So back to the Abraham Hicks teaching. Simply put (my translation)
It is in the seat of happiness that we are aligned with our Source energy (aka "The Vortex") and can more easily manifest the life we want.
Of course, staying happy is the slippery part. Click on the link below to learn more...
