Experiences are like smoke… they are there but not there… and this includes the idea of the one perceiving it. No experience can ever be held on to.

Facebook Question: What about the experience of love?

Michael: All experiences come and go in time; same with thoughts. Love is timeless and boundless. It isn’t anything in particular because it’s already everything and nothing. But the mind can never understand this because Love isn’t a “thing,” i.e., an object in time/space (person, place or thing) which can be obtained or gotten or possessed.The search for Love requires the belief that it isn’t already present. So, paradoxically, it’s the seeking for Love that obscures it. It’s a fish in the ocean searching for water.

Daniel Litvak Comment: Experience = story. So, in a way, experience is the only thing that IS held on to–in the form of a story. In truth nothing can ever be held on to. There’s nothing to grasp, and no “hands” to grasp it with. Only an imaginary story, made of smoke, and held on to in the mind–as a form of distraction from what is.
