Each moment is infinitely wondrous.
What seems like an obtuse spiritual concept at first
Can, with practice and meditation
Become quite accessible.
The result can be almost hallucinatory.
Why do you think the most advanced sages
Often sound like they’re on drugs?
Beneath the surface talk of chakras and energy flows
And kundalini rising and union with the divine
What’s really happening
Is they have struck the mother lode
Of enhanced awareness
Awareness of the infinite wonder
In each moment of consciousness.
How wondrous would a moment be
If you only had three years instead of a lifetime?
If you had three weeks?
How infinitely precious
Does a moment of existence become
When life is scarce
Such as near the end of life
Or when you think you’re near the end?
Suppose you love diamonds.
Now suppose you walk into a giant room
Filled with a vast number of diamonds
More than you can possibly absorb or comprehend.
What would happen?
Economically, diamonds would suddenly become worthless.
But what if you were able to continue
To love and appreciate the beauty of each individual diamond
Even though they are now plentiful rather than scarce?
You would be in diamond heaven.
That’s what each moment of life is like
To spiritual seekers who achieve enhanced awareness.
Does the plentifulness of moments
Make each moment less wondrous?
No, but it dilutes our awareness
So everyday life seems commonplace.
With enhanced awareness
Each moment of existence
Is restored to its true glorious wonder
Like an individual diamond is precious
To the diamond lover,
In spite of the infinite abundance of diamonds.
