The present moment has been in works for more than fourteen billion years. Explosions as big as the big bang fourteen billion years ago had to commence the sequence of stars and planets to form and die until the earth be born more than four billion years ago and we come to exist more than a million years ago.
The life on earth had to start as old as four billion years ago, almost as old as the birth of planet earth and evolution had to pass through oceans and sky until we gain the level of consciousness and knowledge to understand the concepts of past present and future, with the present being the only real time and the past and future be the conceptual times. Now when we bring our awareness to the present time in it’s entirety, considering all that had to happen for this moment of present awareness to come to existence, what is the value of that? A moment that a universe had to be created and stars had to form and die for it to be present.
This is a true present to any conscious mind. What is the valuation of this present?
