Living in the Now was created from blog posts and offers inspiration, reflections on the human condition, and practical spiritual guidance on subjects such as aging, fear, anger, choice, boredom, desire, patience, peace, faith, forgiveness, acceptance, love, commitment, hope, purpose, honesty, spiritual experiences, meditation, being present, healing conditioning, trusting life, trusting your Heart, and many other deep subjects.
The intent of these messages is to help you wake up out of the ego and realize your true nature as Oneness and, therefore, be more present, happy, loving, and fulfilled in your life. These messages were given to Gina Lake by a wise and benevolent consciousness from another dimension, who is dedicated to helping humanity awaken. Each short message stands on its own and can be used for contemplation or as a spiritual reminder.

"With her latest book, Living in the Now, Gina Lake continues to establish herself as one of the major spiritual teachers of our time. The 82 short chapters are each a powerfully inviting doorway for learning how to recognize the peace and happiness of the now and how to live in it constantly. Although the convenient, bite-sized wisdom is especially well-suited for busy people who have only spare moments to absorb spiritual instruction, everyone can benefit equally. This is a must read." -Dennis Trunk, Editor, Third Millennium Gateway
Quotes from Living in the Now:
"Your hands are alive, and this aliveness can be felt. Take a moment and just feel the aliveness. It's experienced subtly, like a vibration or tingling or warmth. Notice how this aliveness is not only in your hands but throughout your body. Can you feel it in your face?...your scalp?...your feet?...your arms?...your thighs?...your chest? Every part of your body is alive, and this aliveness can be felt subtly by you when you pay attention to it. Paying attention to it will automatically bring you into the now. Experiencing life brings you into life and brings you to life, you could say."
"This experience that you are having right now is it. This moment is life--it's what is real. And it's just what it is. You can pile all the thoughts, feelings, and imaginations into it that you want, but it still is just this. And no matter how much money you have in the bank or don't have, how youthful or old you are, how talented or untalented you are, how successful or unsuccessful you are, you still have just this. No billionaire has any more or less of this. People try to dress it up in ideas, but it still comes down to just this simple moment. You can love it or hate it, but you still just have this."
"This commentator in your head is not you. It's especially not a wise you. Would you listen to this voice if it weren't going on in your head? You can use your functional, rational mind to see through this more primitive aspect of the mind, which has taken control and pretends to be you but doesn't deserve control. It doesn't deserve your attention. The worst thing about giving your attention to this voice is that you can't give it to something else that is truer and more fulfilling."About the Author:
