The Here and Now
Blake discusses the unique significance of the Here and Now and how it is the gateway away from the world of the Mind. Through asking the question “What is the one’s sense of Here?” Blake illustrates how the true power of Here and Now is not through our ideas of what being “Here” means, but through the direct experience of Being found in holding one’s awareness in the precise moment-to-moment unfolding of the Here and Now.
Exploring life and one’s sense of Being through the ever-deepening question of “What is?”, Blake uses the example of looking at a Barbie doll and asking “What is ‘Barbie’?” to illuminate how people live in a world made of their associations, ideas, judgments, and definitions of the world around them. This “sense” of the reality of life is created by the Mind, and only through resting in the Here and Now can one move beyond the Mind.
