During a private session with a couple at their house today, I said:
THIS moment is perfect not because you or I say it is…
It’s perfect because it’s ALL there is. This has nothing to do with right or wrong, good or bad or liking or not liking. It has to do with the fact that there is no other moment that is presently arising except the one that is presently arising! And so, IT perfectly IS because it’s ALL that can truly be said to be!
The mind may try to argue, try to claim there is some other better moment in the future, but this “future moment” is a concept, and can never actually be found in your presently arising direct experience.
You can never escape what is. When this is seen clearly, the futility of trying to escape from the only thing that is becomes obvious, and the compulsion to try may fall away all by itself revealing only causeless emptiness/peace.
