There is only one thing
ever to point to for your own freedom.
And it's not a thing, it
is this moment. This is where your focus should rest. Not today, not
this hour, not this minute nor this second, it is much more simple than
that. It is right now, this very moment. To allow everything to be as
it is just now. To be present with what is right now.
And right now you
exist. Right now, there is a feeling of being. In this moment without
referring to your thoughts there is this undeniable sense that you are.
Notice this. Not "you are a person" or "your are" anything at all.
But simply being. It is indescribable, indefinable, but it is you. If
thoughts come, let them come, let them go. If feelings are there let
them be. Don't resist anything. Don't even resist the resistance.
Because if you resist this moment, if you think it should be other than
it is, then you are at war with this moment. And no matter how hard you
try and manipulate your world in this moment to be the way you would
like it to be, it will only be the way that it is.
So you either are
resting in this moment or you are fighting this moment. You are living
as "I am" or your are living as "I want." To be here in this moment, or
to be lost in your thoughts. You can't have both. Freedom or
limitation. This present moment, or your endless commentary about who
you think you are, where you have been and where you are going. Can you
let everything be in this moment? Can you stop trying to change and
control your world and instead, simply rest with me right now? Just for
this second, can you let go and rest in what is here and now?
