the invitation

Microsoft Word - Document2The invitation is to look, right now. Do not believe what anyone has told you; do not believe what you have read.

Everything depends on your dropping your beliefs about how the world is; you can always pick those beliefs up again, and looking at the heart of your own direct experience in this moment.

  • Has there ever been a moment in your life when it was not now?
  • Have you noticed that thoughts about the past and thoughts about the future always occur now?
  • Can you find a doer, or does life just get done?
  • Can you find the origin of a thought or a feeling, or do they arise full-blown, all on their own? And then, boom! they’re gone, just as abruptly as they arrived?
  • Do you really have control, or occasionally–do events simply happen to turn out the way you wanted, and then your mind takes ownership?

Love,
Amrita
