“don’t let your lover slip by”

“What is it that matters? This is what matters. It’s simply not to let your lover slip by. It is right here. If it feels like spinning mind then that is what it is. If it feels like pain in the body, that is what it is. If it feels like the sky has parted and there is the greatest bliss that has ever been tasted, that is what it is. What it is not is the next moment. What it is not is a story of the past. What it is not is something outside me. This mind is so sophisticated, can be so seductive, can make so much noise, but your own inherent freedom is so simple. It is so immediate. There is no time in it. There is no distance in it.”

–David Waldman, from a satsang, August 2011

Does anything else need to be said? Not in this moment.
Enjoy a beautiful day!
