Are we waiting for the big "shift?"
Are we waiting for this here-now to change,
to become something different,
to be "better?"
Are we waiting to be liberated,
enlightened, released from suffering?
This here-now can never change.
It can never be better, because
THIS is ever-fresh,
here and now...
but not the "here" of place or
the "now" of time.
The here-now which simply is....This.
Nothing special is going to happen.
There is no one to "become" liberated.
Nothing ever happens, because
that implies a beginning
and an end.
It implies time, which is not.
Nothing and no one sees that.
Seeing doesn't even see "itself" - not as an object.
"What" is seen is not an object.
What is seen is simply the "act" of seeing!
(or being, or experiencing, etc.,
choose your favorite word)
What we call subject, object and act
are ONE "is-ing."
In other words,
Being is not being "something."
Being just is, and there is nothing else.
The entire universe,
all imagination, feelings,
sensations, appearances, etc.
are Being, be-ing.
There is no one to know this or teach it.
Spontaneous words appear like frogs
and rainbows and steel.
Nothing means anything.
Nothing is leading anywhere.
This is IT. Right here, right now.
There is no one, no where, no place,
that is "other than" THIS,
No thought, no feeling,
can take us anywhere, any way
that is not where we always are,
This is IT.
It's like looking for water
when we are drowning in it.
There is no escape,
no "time" when THIS is not,
no "place" where THIS is not.
"Time" and "place" are concepts
made of THIS! Being is taking the
appearance of "time" and "place,"
"person" and "concept,"
that is all.
Being is kind of like ONE infinite
seamless "block" of experiencing.
This is what "we" are.
This is it.
We've never been one millimeter away from
what we longed for.
There appeared a "we."
There appeared "longing."
It was (is) only always THIS.
