A little "story" which spontaneously arose this morning. Sitting with the questions, observing the dance of back/forth, this/that....all the while, deep silence, deep joy, loving to be whatever arises..
And now some questions for you:
1) What are you afraid of?
Without "traveling" into a past or a future, are you afraid of anything?
2) What do you desire?
In the here-now, without "dreaming," do you desire anything?
3) Are you going to die?
Notice what thoughts and ideas appear with this question.... if any. Does the question even make sense?
4) Can you know anything?
Ahh...this one is so ripe with freedom, it just might burst into a sweet nectar! ;-))
It seems like these questions use the mind to stop the mind...but isn't that also just another story? Whatever arises is spontaneous, fresh and alive - now. In this aliveness, is any explanation or purpose needed?
