Only the mind is concerned, not the life
’What should I do (?), I’d like to stop the pain and feel fine!’
This wanting it to stop is what is causing the trouble. Let the pain there. But watch it! Such way, we can see what we are not… Fighting it only exaggerates the discomfort, because some interpretation to this experience that makes it noiser… Let the reactions happen. The fear of the loss of control, the fear of the loss of identity, the fear of giving up your dreams, the fear of abandonment come up like serpents to frighten you… – I’d like to stop the pain
But they derive power through your attention. We support them. It can kill your peace and happiness. It only figures big in your mind. Take a look at why you are holding on. Who is holding on? You can’t pursue what is – which can beyond this -, because you already are what is… It does not need to do any spiritual gymnastics to be itself. For whom is it sadness? We can’t be sad, we are aware of sadness… Hold on only to the simple feeling of existence: ’I am’. This is a formless being…
Don’t enter any movement at all
There is nothing more worthy of discovery in this form than to know who you are. It is not merely theory, it is possible to wake up: free of doubt, free of fear. Don’t enter any movement at all. Any feeling, thought arising out of this introspection, don’t identify with them. And then what remains here? Nothing can get in between you and it. So, do not pay any attention to the serpent’s voice. The mind can be used for normal service but can never help you to be who you are. We do not need philosophy… is required to know our Self. We need a mirror.
When free of the need to judge or identify, no energy leaks out of the senses, they become joy. You do not want anything, so you are free. We are that already. We don’t need to do anything. We can’t improve it. We need recognition only. And there is no standard answer when we are searching for the truth. It is not just about answering the question, but also answering the questioner. We can belive in God, but we can’t believe int he Self…
Only the mind is concerned, not the life. Wherever I go, I am never outside of the Self. The one identified with ’I’ thinks that anything that happens in his life is caused by his environment including the people around him. ’I’ is the cause of your all troubles. Do not fix your life, find this ’I’ and see what happens. And what good is the past which create this ’I’? No one wants to eat the last month food… Do not speak about future either. Be the one who has no history.
From this perspective, everything becomes this spontaneous existence
It is not that there is an ’I’ that is one with all the other. No, it is that the ’I’ as a psychological entity, which carries a feeling of independent doership… There aren’t two things and all are forms of the one Self. You will perceive the same Self in all beings. I am not seeing the world as it is, I am seeing the world as I am. From this perspective, everything becomes this spontaneous existence.
There isn’t any room left for any ideas… So, remain as what remains… We aren’t enjoying the life, because we’ve watched the mind’s version of how things should be. Suffering results. Life is a mistery, and it can’t be solved, so do not try. Observe. Do not worry about anything. This play is not your business.
