The 'me' that is projected into events of the past or future are no more than thoughts arising presently. They are not the real me, the only me there really is is the one present now. This one just watches the movies playing.

Everything is arising presently. Each thought that appears disappears, nothing lasts. A sound comes and goes all in this space of awareness which is here now.
You are here/now.
Find you and you will know you are complete.

And i have a compass if that helps?

We 'think' we are in relation to 'things', in relation to a compass that is placed upon a world. We see that picture first because that is taught to us and is firmly implanted. We locate ourselves on a template, a map in our heads, a map of the world.
We are not quite sure where we are on that map and we feel lost. The map is past and future (time based) and the map is of co-ordinates on a world, and the map has good and bad, success and failure. But that map can be seen for what it is when you know where you are.

I have only one problem with this. Its a problem I can never get past with these types of ideas. This:

What about a infant that is abused or stricken with a horrible disease or gets in a terrible accident and is suffering greatly? Aren't they so young and innocent that they would be only in happy moments? What causes their suffering? Certainly not themsleves. So, there must be an outside force, we are not God we are only a part of God.

Your intentions are very good and you know what you are talking about but i have learnt a long time ago that people turn away from this stuff when you start preaching it.
I think its great to give an opinion and let others go through the self awareness process on here own will but when you claim to have an answer to what most people feeling is missing usually turns people away. I know because i have been there : (

Yes, there is something missing that would make me feel whole and complete. I've searched for years. I've tried prayer and meditation. I've asked advice from the most knowledgeable people I know.

I just can't seem to find that winning Powerball ticket.

Whatever is happening is happening, when it is there is no argument with what is, it just is. When the mind and time come in there is a resistance to what is and that is the suffering.

The mind believes that it should not be happening and the mind is obviously deluded because if it is happening it is happening. The mind is of time, it says it 'will' be better, or it 'was' better.
The mind takes you away from the only thing that is happening.

Ok, that makes some sense, but...why is it that we have to wait until we are adults to learn this and apply it? Why does any baby have to suffer? They are too young to realize such abstract concepts and just "allow" the pain and detach from it. What I mean is, they can't detach from the suffering.How did this system develop? Why is it only for enlightened individuals that can use it to escape suffering? Its not fair.

Perhaps the problem is associating yourself with material things and the desire for riches which holds you back from real self discovery.

well those years of searching for the answer are over.

Your Welcome

Babies are feeling beings and it is the wanting to escape being a feeling being that makes us turn away from what is felt in the moment. As babies grow up they feel alone and abandoned, we go into ourselves and feel separate from the whole. We turn off feeling and turn toward intellect, or knowledge, we try to work life out.

The separation, the detachment, that happens produces the illusion of more than one thing happening. Also as humans we are given a name that represents a past and future me which helps with the illusionary time trick.

Ok, thats a good answer...its hard to argue with that. But, I still wonder why we have to be subject to evil, why are we not allowed to exist only happy if that is our will? I understand we have to accept that there is both good and bad, however my point is...I don't understand why. Everything just IS, but...there is a rhyme and reason, its not chaos. If you eat poison ivy you will suffer, if things were random, then sometimes the poison would do nothing. We would just have to tolerate whatever is. But that is not the case, we can avoid the poison because this is a known fact. Therefore life is leading us to believe it is controllable, because some things are controllable (for example: I control the fact that I will not ever intentionally eat poison ivy). If the concept of order and control exists, than some higher being must be able to control all circumstances. So, if we know for a fact that not all is random ( after all we can expect the sun to rise everyday and not just some days when it feels like it), then...that leads me to...why does the universe/God which has invented order and control not allow us to literally be what we want and feel what we want? I'm sorry to rant, I don´t know how to put into words what I mean. Why would it tease us that way with ideas of of control?

Nice op and follow up replies Itisnowagain. I agree with you.

I found myself by transcending beyond thought, emotion, and perception. Liberation from Ego. Observing instead of rationalizing. Experiencing instead comparing. Concentrated on the present moment instead of losing peace by dwelling in the past or future.

But what did I discover when I found Self? When I found Now? When I found I Am?
- I found that I must get my head out of the clouds. I must live, experience, and observe this life to the fullest. Reality is subjective and relative just so we can have experience.

Peace.

As humans we want to understand. We are trying to understand with our minds. What is happening is beyond our minds comprehension because the mind is moving, working, within it. The mind is seen working by what??
The mind can only try to describe what appears to be here. 'Your' thoughts are contained in you/here/now. Or you can open the container if you realize that you are here as now. There is nothing else existing beyond this here and now in your experience
There is no answer to why. Why is answerless but is the mother of mind.
Forget why and stick with 'this is'.

If we know we are the one that is watching, the one that is present when the mind tells stories of past and future, we will know where we are.
The true one is the silent watcher, the silent listener.
