Nowism can become a comprehensive theory grounded in the simple truth that now is all there ever is

I  have 
independently realized 
this term 


But I see that 


came upon it a few years back

Nowism — Promoting the power of 
the present moment.


Understanding “Nowism” | Psychology | 
A better known
and more influential 
source of Nowism
is the book The Power of Now
based on
principles that 
suggest a New Age
"spiritual teacher"

Even though this work
has sold in the millions
it does not qualify
as a theory
It does reflect
the current growth
of spiritual consciousness

The Power of Now: 
A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment - 
Eckhart Tolle - 
Google Books
My approach will be to
note that nowism is 
a core element of the philosophy
I have been propounding

Nowism accords with
Charles Sanders Peirce

Salient thought
is never an 
individual achievement
Indeed its capacity
to become a dominant theory
is due to the approbation
of the community

This is so true 
that I no longer copyright anything
If I earn on what I do
it is because people
support it
by obtaining
the materials I create

The reward we all get
living in the now
is well beyond anything
we might earn

We are nomads of the universe
We are aware of its 
foundational truth

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …
