more than this day!
The present ring contains one
of the secrets of happiness. Most of human suffering is caused by
focusing our thoughts on the past and on the future. Yearning for the
thinking about what has already happened as well as fearing the future
and what may happen, results in a state of "non-existence". We exist in the
present which is, in fact, the only reality that exists for us.
Our failure to recognize the present results in our being in a
continuous state of fear and suffering. This ring consists
of 4 states of awareness that were created to protect us from illusion
and to bring us happiness.
The first word - "present"
directs us to the only time that exists - now. Focusing on the present,
causes us to be aware of everything that is happening around us. When
we are in the present we have a "presence"
and we reach the state of "the present" - Ha-Nimtza
(Hebrew word for is here). Ha-Nimtza hints to us the first stages that
cause us to "awaken" and "find ourselves" - and in this way to reach a
place where we can truly experience our own existence.
The release of false thoughts and trepidations, such as fear and anger,
can bring us to a place of clarity and a sense of living a real life,
free of suffering.
