Life is so precious. And if you stop for even an instant- it must be a full stop-a complete moment with no accoutrements, attachments, residual thought streams –everything vaporizes. What you will find is a luscious garden of endless space: pure emptiness and see yourself looking out from behind the eyes of the body-form you once called ‘me’. That body form will be included in awareness but your idea about the body-form and everything else will fall away.
What you really are has always been the space and includes the space. How can you find a self when there is nothing to compare yourself with? Then all questions, all mind made movements recede, keep receding and receding until the day comes when the concept we call ‘mind’ is lost irretrievably. You don’t need it. Memories, we cling to them with such fervor but when you live in the timeless now trying to hold on to flickering thoughts forms called memories or to retrieve them from the brain data base becomes a ludicrous proposition. It is an exercise in the obsolete.
If something needs to be remembered it will be. It will come into the now, into the moment unasked just like everything else. To taste a freedom this deep is great good fortune and if you add the secret element of earnestness for freedom, surrender to truth and the One–a facilitation towards freedom will take place.
The great paradox is: nobody can do this yet you must try.
