The Present Moment , Living in the moment, Being Present . These popular catch phrases,  these ideas are hot topics in the awakening discussion , and when understood and “Lived” are vital to staying sane in an insane world , but what does it actually mean to be present, to live in the moment .

All  of the great teachers out there  talk about being in the present moment as perhaps the most important aspect of  awakening , why … because the present moment is all that really exists, past and future or just ideas, constructs, thoughts coming from the world of form.

The key to actually living in the moment is really about understanding the “Human Condition”.  So what is the human condition , well the general connotation is that of … suffering, although there is so much more to “Being” human, much of it is quite wonderful , joyous and exciting !

So … what is causing the suffering part ?  Well … all I can share is my own personal experience , although from what I hear from others  out there , we are all very similar , we are  experiencing very similar challenges when it comes to trying to stay present and live in the moment .

It appears much of the challenge comes from our “over identification”  with form , which includes our thoughts  generated by the conditioned mind , our ego , our persona ,  most of which we inherited through our culture via indoctrination.

Present Moment Awareness is where it’s at baby !   Don’t let any one tell you differently , they are just trying to suck you into the past or future , which is where the scared little ego is running around trying to make a life for itself .

Present Moment Awareness is about living in the moment , in a state of no mind , Zen like , yet still managing to keep the mind in a holding pattern so to speak .

Your mind is a useful tool no doubt about it , and you can learn to use it “just”  when you need it , no sooner , no later, you keep it on short leash , so it doesn’t go off on tangents.

You see there is a real addiction to thinking , in fact thinking is probably the most wide spread addition on the planet . Perhaps I’m being a little bit silly here , but not really  , yes there is constructive thinking , analytical thinking , all types of thinking that are useful in the creation process.

However much of the thinking going in peoples minds is not constructive at all , in fact it’s counter productive , because most of it is negative or dis empowering , all these old programs running  in the back ground , much of it is from the conditioning we get from  society or the group mind , there not even our own original thoughts … ouch !

It’s 2014 and The Zombies are here , run … run to the malls … I mean hills !  Billions of them around the planet , walking around in every town and city , state and country , the numbers increasing daily , their minds filled with things , things that need to be done, things that need to be said , things they wish they would have done and said, a steady stream of incessant thinking !

As you walk down the street , you can see them everyone , deep within their thoughts , cut off from the present moment , like zombies in a horror film , only instead of not being able to die, these zombies are not able to live, their conditioned minds have  built a prison around their perception , their awareness , everywhere they look there is a thought , a conceptualization , a categorization , a judgment , an opinion , their  life situations play on endlessly , like a broken record, like a bad soap opera with no ending in sight , life is a constant battle full of conflict , resolution , loss and gain , this is the state of the modern “Human” being .

On top off that we have “technology” , machines that are supposed to make our life simpler , easier , and  while walking , lost in their thoughts , the zombies are texting and talking on their smart phones to other zombies, , thumbs flying as they struggle to text , think and walk at the same time , bumping into each , like cattle headed towards the trough ,  occasionally you get a glimpse of their eyes, no sign of presence , no sign of awareness , lost in the wilderness of the mind, with frowns on their face, fear in their eyes , it’s a jungle out there and everything is a threat .
