The following questions and or insights can provide shortcuts to connecting with the Universal Truth:

Live in the Present

Divine is a present time force.

Did anything synchronistic happen today?

Am I carrying anything from the past (carrying the dead)?

Dump garbage everyday.

Ideas and thoughts become physical matter.
