Awareness

is

not a state

to

be

gained/achieved – it is;

all states

appear to appear

on

states

are (bound),

awareness

is

(unbound).

The

sweetness of the beloved

lies

here/now – without

any

need

of

effort – gained

or

garnered.

IMGP8282BW

.

Resistance

is

futile,

then again

so

is

surrender:

it’s not about

resistance/surrender,

it’s

about

awareness;

who resists – who surrenders?

Insight #645

IMGP8205

.

The

reality of Being

is

so obvious,

it

goes unnoticed;

instead,

[we] try

to

see

Self

through thought, thinking

&

the

fiction

of

thinker.

[Brooklyn Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden] 

.

What’s

sacred

needs no thought;

thought

cannot add anything

to

the

sacred – here/now

Being.

Most

people

would rather think

about

the

idea of the self,

rather

than settle into/visit

Self.

You

do not need anything

to

Be Who You Are;

mantra, mudra, yantra

&

tantra

cannot add to

Being.

Insight #641

IMGP9084

.

Faith, hope, charity

&

truth

are

lovely ideas,

but

have nothing

to

do

with

Who You Are;

settle

as awareness,

the

rest

will take care

of

itself.
