What a privilege and blessing this life experience is.
The experience of this unfolding creation – the opportunity to be here, now.
A clarity now that having seen beyond the illusion of one which is actually three. But nevertheless, the interplay of the body, mind and life energy makes it all the more wonderous.
Yielding completely to this Life. Not trying to control or do anything. Just a complete openness to the moment-to-moment unfolding. At its smallest, it might be feeling the bodily sensation around the heart with the breath. It might be expanded to being with the immediate environment. Perhaps after that, just being with this Life experience however it is showing up. How humbling is that?
Nothing. Nowhere to be, nothing to do. Nothing to prove. Just be. When I comes, tell it “not here now” and watch it float away.
“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: if we have been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozled has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan, power over you, you almost never get it back.” Carl Sagan
Stepping away from the bamboozle.
By being true. True to who I really am.
When I cut a piece of wood, it takes care. I cut in a specific zone. Not too far on the waste side (the past) of the line. But at the same time, be careful to not cut either on the line or over the line (the future). The big YES comes from cutting right beside the line (now). It requires care and precision.
What Hermann said…
Today… as I step out the front door
Arms spread wide and looking to the sky
Create the intention to…
Be infinitely less of a Man…
Be infinitely more of a Man…
Completely embrace this mystery and grandeur…
And at the end of this day that has no beginning nor end…
Be the best, the greatest, the one and only!
There is the “big” memory – the genetic memory. Like, my great, great Grandfathers nose being on my face. Then there is my life memories which are now fragrances that drift in and out, but I have learned not to dwell. But the most profound memory now is remembering who I really am. That is what now matters so much.
Return to the source – the core. The Love and Bliss that is ever present. The quiet reassurance. The knowing.
The person in front of me.
Perhaps it is more about awakening? The idea of growing older seems very linear, a single direction and final. Awakening is a multidimensional unfolding and eternal. I sense the need to awaken, not grow old. Sounds like I don’t accept growing old, but growing up.
Bring chocolate and beer.
The miracle of Love. The simple three-word sentence, “I Love You”. When the I and You disappear, there remains (always) Love.
The winter sunrise today is a glory. I think the birds agreed. They all sang gleefully.
¨In reality there is only the source, dark in itself, making everything shine. Unperceived, it causes perception. Unfelt, it causes feeling. Unthinkable, it causes thought. Non-being, it gives birth to being. It is the immovable background of motion. Once you are there, you are at home everywhere.¨ Nisargadatta
