I want to be here now.
I don’t want more. I want to go deeper.

There is a difference between the fleeting moment between past and future that the ego calls “now” and the ever-present Awareness in which all-things-ego arise … deliberately moving our attention to the ever-present Awareness in which the movie of this world appears is to encounter Life :)

Everything and everyone, everywhere, can be used as a reminder to return the attention to ever-present Awareness aka Life. This is the stage that I’m at in my spiritual unfolding …

A Course in Miracles says, “…sink down and inward, away from the world and all the foolish thoughts of the world. You are trying to reach past all these things. You are trying to leave appearances and approach reality. It is quite possible to reach God. In fact, it is very easy, because it is the most natural thing in the world…” Sounds like you are on your way, Jonas!

You know, Jack Kerouac wrote this to his ex-wife, ten years after their annulment, “I have lots of things to teach you now, in case we ever meet, concerning the message that was transmitted to me under a pine tree in North Carolina on a cold winter moonlit night. It said that Nothing Ever Happened, so don’t worry.

It’s all like a dream. Everything is ecstasy, inside. We just don’t know it because of our thinking-minds.

But in our true blissful essence of mind is known that everything is alright forever and forever and forever. Close your eyes, let your hands and nerve-ends drop, stop breathing for 3 seconds, listen to the silence inside the illusion of the world, and you will remember the lesson you forgot, which was taught in immense milky way soft cloud innumerable worlds long ago and not even at all. It is all one vast awakened thing.

I call it the golden eternity. It is perfect.

We were never really born, we will never really die. It has nothing to do with the imaginary idea of a personal self, other selves, many selves everywhere: Self is only an idea, a mortal idea. That which passes into everything is one thing. It’s a dream already ended. There’s nothing to be afraid of and nothing to be glad about.

I know this from staring at mountains months on end. They never show any expression, they are like empty space. Do you think the emptiness of space will ever crumble away? Mountains will crumble, but the emptiness of space, which is the one universal essence of mind, the vast awakenerhood, empty and awake, will never crumble away because it was never born.”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
