Living an Integral Part of the NOW!

For the past three days, I have had to focus all of my attention on one thing: becoming a character in a movie who was nothing like me. He was a machismo, puritanical, Latin father with a 17-year old daughter. Because I’m not allowed to disclose the story line before the movie’s release, I can only say that some days during the shoot I had to create the same scenario over in my mind, speak the same exact lines, 10-15 times, and cry at the exact moment over and over again.

In my normal everyday life, my attention usually is divided into many places during a day. I have many irons in the fire for so many parts of my life. However, on this day, I could do nothing but focus on the moment.

Between scenes, I took a few moments to walk around outside the set, just to experience the Earth-balance, while the technicians set up the lights and sound. But, the time for these quiet moments would be interrupted with: “Bo, you’re needed on set!”

All this to say, that the days flew by. Usually, I eat at 7 am, and then I’m hungry by 11:30 am. It was 1:30-2 pm on the first day of the shoot, before I had the opportunity to eat lunch. I never got hungry before the moment we broke to eat. I didn’t even know that the kitchen was filled with unhealthy snacks the entire time. Grips and ADs kept asking me if I needed anything. The only thing I asked for was water.

I usually have to have 3 or 4 things going on at the same time so that I don’t get bored on normal days. But, within these 3 days, I was completely in the NOW. When I would get home, I would take a quick swim, go in the jacuzzi, then I would sleep like a baby for 9-11 hours, which I never do. The next morning I would wake up rested and ready, never weary.

As I look back at the spiritual lessons that I experienced during this shoot, I see that the angels were sharing with me the importance of focusing all of my Spiritual energy for the moment, especially when I need the divine power of God to be brilliant—when I want my light to shine the brightest. This doesn’t mean to be unauthentic, as nothing in me tried to be anything but real during those 3 days.

I simply was “on-call” for when I was needed; as I believe we are to be for the spiritual forces on this Earth—to help those who are falling backward into negative egotism and narcissistic ways.

At one point during the film, I was to fall back on the floor. This was to be staged to look as if I was falling directly on my back. However, the producer was there to stand behind me so that when I fell back, he would catch me. During the first rehearsal, I misunderstood what I was supposed to do and fell back hard, knowing with certainty that the producer would catch me. He did not!

I fell back on my neck and shoulder and was in immediate pain. Although I was in the moment, I was using my own ego to devise the outcome. I didn’t listen closely to the direction of spirit (the director). As a result, I got hurt.

I rested for a moment on a bed and simply prayed that I would not feel any pain. I needed to do about 10 more takes with me doing a very acrobatic and comedic take that required all of this 57-year-old’s energy. Again, I go back to staying in the now. I used whatever I was feeling physically to help the scene appear more real. Whenever I got home, I iced my body, got a massage, and the next day I was perfectly fine. There were no signs of the stinging moment of falling from the day before.

As I sit here writing this blog, I can clearly see that the past 3 days were so fleeting that I can barely remember the details. I simply know that I had brought all of my best to the moment. The rest is up to spirit and the nurturing of God to grow what I have planted into the fertile ground of my life.

This is the spiritual metaphor I live by. I can plant the seeds in my life, but only Spirit (God) can actually grow the plant!

We must live our lives like my past three days; especially, when we are called out for a moment that requires us to be way more than we can perceive we are. Fear never has a place in the now. Fear can not exist unless we let our mind float away from this perfect moment.

Namaste.

Sifting Through the Garbage to Find my Lost “?”

Have you ever found yourself searching everywhere for a lost item? The last place, however, you want to look is in the garbage. Why? Because you know in that garbage is the most infectious place in your home, the germs, the waste, the refuse, the dirt, the scum, and what you definitely don’t need anymore…

That garbage can is your past!

That’s right. That’s why you don’t want to look there. Because everything in it is waste. The past is no longer useful to you.

Okay, hold on. Not everything in my past should be in that garbage can, right? Wrong.

Everything that has already happened is keeping you from looking at what is happening right now. Everything. You can’t separate the good from the bad. If you are holding on to an old thought, bless your heart. But you will miss everything that is happening right now and especially the chance to be the light that you are meant to be NOW.

I get it that there are memories I want to hold on to. There are ways to do this without spending your entire day or even moments reliving them. It’s what most people are doing all over the world right now… Take a Photo of It!

I have an altar of sorts in my office. It holds sacred objects. But it also holds things like pictures of seeds I’ve sown in the universe. Places and people I want to bless with my thoughts. These are not wasted moments, because they hold intention. Intention is living in the now.

If something holds a vibration for you, in experience that good vibration you are living in the now. It’s still present, not past.

Even if a person passes away physically, they could be beckoning you from the ether. Is this living in the past? Only if you are mourning over it and not listening for the wisdom they could bring you.

Live now. Yesterday may have been the best day of your life. But, guess what? Tomorrow may be even better.

Expect it!

Yesterday is History! #NOW #spiritualadvice #personalpower #newthought

A good friend said to me this morning: “Yesterday is history; tomorrow is a mystery. But always remember that today is a gift!”

Why should you remember this quote everyday?

Recently, I have had to create tremendous focus in my life as I have four or five projects active at all times. I must stick to a well-defined schedule. I do not have time to languish over the past, which is a good thing for me. This does not mean, however, that life doesn’t throw a hardball, sometimes, and force me to look at images of my past. What I do with those images is up to me?

I live in the moment, but I try to keep a part of my mind observing how and why I react to life. For this reason I can see when I create a circumstance out of a simple event, instead of releasing and letting go of the circumstance after it happens.

Only you can give a circumstance life. You give a circumstance life when you spend time breathing life into it with your mind and emotions. If you can learn to let go—with love and respect for your past, you can spend more time enjoying the beauty of the moment. Right here, right now.

Remind yourself that when the moment passes, it already becomes history. We only have the exact moment when life happens to experience it fully. If we spend time taking pictures of it, we will miss it and have only the memory of the moment to enjoy.

How many of us are learning to live with a cell phone in one hand and a memory just waiting to happen? We are becoming a culture that looks for moments to share with friends instead of moments to experience. We are more concerned with what our lives look like to others, rather than what our lives feel like to ourselves

  1. Practice the present by feeling your body and your breath.
  2. Come back to yourself when you feel yourself drifting away into thoughts that will only bring you into the past.
  3. Curl your toes and feel your feet in your shoes and on the floor.
  4. Put your hand on your heart and experience the life that pulses through you.
  5. Watch your chest rise and fall with each glorious breath!

You are a living, moving, loving being right now. Honor these lovely moments.Screen Shot 2016-05-11 at 10.04.32 AM
