Eternity must be your home, moment by moment. Without it, you’re lost, always striving, grasping at puffs of smoke. You must do anything necessary to glimpse, and then stabilize, this ever-fresh realization, and organize your life around it.
Make your life an ongoing process of being who you are, at your deepest, most easeful levels of being. How many hours today was your attention focused in the realm of changes-on events, people, thoughts, and experiences-and how often was your attention relaxed into its source?
Where is your attention right now? Can you feel it’s source? Even for a moment, can you feel the deepest nature of attention? What happens when you simply, effortlessly, allow attention to subside into its source?
This source is never changing and always present. It is the constant, silent tone behind and pervading the music of life. feel into this source as deeply as possible, and then re-approach your work, intimacy, family, and creative efforts.
Days and nights fly by for years and life slips through your fingers, your attention absorbed in the seeming world of necessary responsibilities. But all of it is empty if we do not live our responsibilities as expressions of our depth of being and hearth-truth.
Know eternity. Do whatever it takes. And from this depth of being live the details of your life.
All moments are the same intensity of clarity, completeness, and humor when you meet each moment with your deepest realization. Nothing that has ever happened has made any difference to the One who you are.
