To know everything, you must give up everything. What’s left? Nothing, simple. How can that be?
Certainly the ego wouldn’t be satisfied. In fact, it’s the ego with the problem of finding enlightenment. When in fact you already ARE enlightenment. You are enough.
Are you willing to examine that out yourself?
Let’s look at the ego. It’s a collection of stories tied to an identity called … ( your name). At birth you’re a nobody except a name. At death you’re a no-body. In between rests stories.
Are you still the child you were back then? Hmm… clearly not,that child is dead, history. What’s left? Memories, stories. Sure you are not exactly that child, but others may recognize you as that kid cause they have memories thinking about you.
The beauty of life isn’t the face that we live, it’s the fact everything comes to an end. If you were immortal life would be boring.
Memento mori: Remember your mortality
You value life cause you know at some point life’s party is gonna end. Same as the year 2016 in a few more hours.
Basically, contemplate all the above. Where do your thoughts come from? Who beats the heart? When is your next inhalation? (inhale the life, exhale to kill it). Notice how you sit or stand. Shoulders back, back straight. Relax your body. Breath down the lower spine en belly area.
Try it out for 10 min. Doesn’t have to take that long. Secondly, what helps is simply writing about it like I do, and wonder with the utmost of curiosity what is “real” to any questions. Dig out yourself, only you can do it, not me or Santa Claus, you do the work. Comment me about it how well it goes. I’d love to know!
Happy new year lovely people!
