CV 19 has changed our perspective from “be well” to “stay alive,” because we don’t know if we will ever see one another again at each departure.
Keeping it simple may be the answer to every day survival. Allow present aliveness to exist without fabrication or drama. Don’t improve upon the freshness of the present moment. Remain detached from past memory or future plan. All tomorrow’s are imaginary. The past is only memory.
Discouragement and impatience are common themes, these days. Arouse yourself and see what is. The one who is doing the arousing is none other than yourself, your own fundamental identity.
Observe your state of mind, without seeking transformation or enlightenment. In this stepping back, observe the awareness of all your feelings that sees the whole of life in a single breath and step.
There is nothing to do or nowhere to go. We move forward in the hunt for some imagined treasure. But the treasure is within, the last unexplored terrain. We don’t need to do hours and hours of practice or be world travelers to discover we already have what we are looking for before we reach that last breath here on planet earth, the true leap into the unknown.
Stay focused. Gaze upon the towering oak, once an acorn, doing the work of becoming. OM
