To suggest that we have some place to get to, is to push away from what is already present. To become something, is to misperceive that we are not ‘the becoming’. To get something in the future, is to ignore the fact that ‘that’ is present now.
To even go to the ‘next’ moment is too much. Where would we go? Distortion? Pretending? To suggest that ‘its’ got to be around the corner is to abide in delusion. The future does not exist. The future is conceptual playing.
Moreover, we are the Present. To deny our presence is to take more steps in the wrong direction, looking for Ourselves while being exactly what we are looking for. Except we are looking for the Self with the ‘me’, and expecting the ‘me’ to find ‘it’. The ‘me’ does not exist. Welcome to the hamster cage of life.
Time, in this case, is the distorting vehicle. With only Present extant, the seemingly large fields of historical past and presumptive future are eliminated, which eliminates the idea of being solely a person. The idea of a limited person is a feeding on the story of what happened and what will happen to an idea (you). The before, after, and will be, are eliminated by the Now. The feeding is stopped and the delusion is no longer supported.
With no history to limit us, with no future to suggest something different from what we are experiencing , we find ourselves in the Now, just as we Are. It Is just ‘this’. And ‘this’ is not in time. It Is in timelessness.
So when something is perceived to have arrived (called enlightenment) then it will depart, as ‘that’ is in time. When the realization that what is ‘Now’ known, has never left, then the permanence of Being is realized.Furthermore, the unacquired knowledge becomes available, telling Us that ‘this’ has always been, with no ‘before’ or ‘after’, yielding a constant Presence.
Identity has then shifted into permanence rather than the day-to-day struggle of finding oneself in the future based on past efforts, while completely ignoring quantifiable experiential existence.
The effortlessness of Being is Present Now. To suggest that it isn’t, is to be occluded by phenomena obscuring the view of no view. No view is nothing getting in the way because ‘nothingness’ has no occlusion. Everything is then seen. Being ‘nothing’ is clear Seeing with no walls or boundaries.
Every Moment is the most honorable time to honor Self. To suggest otherwise is to misunderstand Self. The unconditional Self is free, allowing everything, accepting everyone, being all life, all the time.
Sitting in the spiritual heart space of Now, we embrace Ourselves with the light and love of unmitigated Awareness. Everything shows up. We Are nothing. We accept it all. Effortlessly.
