I said in the last installment of this Bulletin centering on The Holy Experience that each moment in life is truly holy, because each moment ends. This is not something that everyone knows. Everyone knows that each moment ends, but everyone does not know that for this reason each moment is holy.
And even while everyone knows that each moment ends, many people hope that no really wonderful experience ends. This is a contradiction in terms, yet people still engage in this wishing. They hope that their perfect relationship will never end, or that their perfect job will never end, or that their particular and present happiness, however it is showing up, will never end--but it always does. This does not mean that it will not or cannot be replaced by a new happiness, but the present happiness will always end.
This is something that is very important to remember. It is also important to know that the end of our present happiness is the beginning of our new happiness.
Now if one's happiness is tied to present and particular circumstances, one's happiness is always and forever in jeopardy. Yet if one's happiness rides the tide of all events, and, indeed, creates them, then one has discovered and embraced the Holy Experience.
It is the very fact that each moment is like a snowflake, breath-takingly beautiful, awesomely perfect in its design, absolutely individual and unlike any other, that makes it so remarkable, and renders it holy.
Do we not fall in love with people for this exact reason? Why not, then, fall in love with moments in precisely the same way? Deciding to do this is the beginning of the Holy Experience. It is the Choice Point of Sacred Creation.
There is nothing more profoundly inspiring and absolutely empowering than this fact that each moment is new. It is born, it lives, and dies, right NOW.
Right here, right Now, is each moment born. Right here, right Now, is each moment lived. Right here, right Now, is each moment ended. It is all happening at one Time, in this moment, right Now.
The wonder of all this is that This Moment can be recreated from moment to moment, or created in a new way, with whatever modifications, enhancements, alterations, or adjustments that we choose.
We are not who we were yesterday. We are not even who we were a moment ago. Nothing is. And yet it can be, if we choose for it to be. All we need do is recreate it.
In life we can recreate ourselves as we just were or we can recreate ourselves anew. We are always remaking ourselves. It is never a question of whether, but of how. Are we recreating ourselves as we were before, or in the next grandest version of the greatest vision ever we held about Who We Are?
