The mind is a dimension of consciousness that allows you to leave the present moment and participate in the world of time. It is an intricate world which contains all of your past memories and future imaginings.
When you are present, you are love, and there's nothing you can do about it. You radiate love in the same way that the flame of a candle radiates light and it has nothing to do with who or what you love.
Some people find that when problems come, they suddenly wake up and go, “Oh!” They become more alert and more present. When all is going well, alertness decreases and they go, “Okay, let’s have another drink. Where are we going on vacation next?
Dream your dreams. At the same time, embrace each precious amazing moment of life. From each moment of love, peace, gratitude, compassion, and wonder, you will gracefully and easily be guided to an even better and more amazing moment.
In the present moment, there is no death. Then where is death? It is somewhere in the future. When we are in the past and future world of the mind, we can anticipate the future. We can imagine the future. And that is where you will find death.

I saw a romantic greeting card which showed a couple kissing in the front seat of a car. The message said, “If you can kiss while driving safely, you are not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.”
Many humans at this time are tired and have given up. They are leaving things up to the Universe, Great Spirit, or Jesus. They ride the rollercoaster of ‘whatever shall be shall be.’ Are we using that as an excuse?
Keep building your inner life. The stronger it is, the stronger you will be, and this is very important now. And of course, the only way this can be done in the fullness of the conscious moment, where you are to live.
The mind exists in a state of “not enough” and so is always greedy for more. When you are identified with mind, you get bored and restless very easily. Boredom means the mind is hungry for more stimulus, more food for thought, and its hunger is not being satisfied.
