We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infinitesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future.
We have no present.
Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation.
We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience
than present experience.
We are therefore out of touch with reality.
We confuse the world
as talked about, described, and measured with the world which actually is.
We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers,
of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas.
Be as natural and spacious as possible.
Slip quietly out of the noose
of your habitual anxious self,
release all grasping,
and relax into your true nature.
What is it like to not attempt to change, fix, create or recreate any experience for the benefit of a “me?”
When an experience arises---whether pleasurable or painful—it is simply allowed to be. This allowing happens by no one. Stated another way, this allowing happens naturally and effortlessly from the simple recognition of presence beyond the time-bound, thought-based story of the doer that falsely believes s/he is in control.
You are this presence, not the time-based story that is making effort to gain a future benefit from his/her actions. Presence sees that every experience is---by its very nature---temporary. Every past experience has now gone. Presence is always here. Instead of trying to find out who you are through particular experiences, recognize that presence is arising as every experience.
Presence does not have a self-centered objective. It isn’t seeking to add something to itself through experience. Presence just is. Its very nature is to allow. It even allows all doing to happen.
Doing that arises from presence has a different feel altogether than doing that arises from the “me” energy that has an agenda to get something in return for its actions. Doing that arises from presence accepts what is naturally and effortlessly and then responds naturally and effortlessly. It has no selfish agenda because it recognizes no separate self.
