What IS The Now???
The Now is the "field" in which reality is happening — the space in which everything is taking place. It’s always the Now. Five minutes ago when I was washing lettuce, it was the Now. In twenty years when I'm looking into the eyes of a child, it will be the Now. It's not time-based, it's presence-based. When we are in a state of presence we are aware of being in the Now.
All forms have arisen and dissolved in the Now. Over a lifetime our bodies start as seeds, grow into babies, into adults, then elderly — all in the Now. Arising and dissolving. Impulse to seed to dust. And it’s the same with all form. Buildings, civilizations. All arise and dissolve in the Now.
Our thoughts arise and dissolve in the Now. Our feelings and emotions arise in the Now and then dissolve in the Now.
We are awareness in form, ever creating, in the Now. Essence, presence, in this field of Now.
One Now. It's not "this now" then "this now" then "this now". Those are references to moments of the Now. Just "the Now."
