Conclusions

One of the (many!) tricks of the ego is to draw a CONCLUSION from whatever our present experience is. So for example, if we are feeling crappy or down or anxious, the ego, via intense imagination/feelings, will have us dead in a ditch in no time!!?

But let’s look a little deeper. Is this true? Does how I am feeling right now dictate how I am going to be feeling 1 min. from now? Maybe yes, maybe no… the truth is, I really don’t know. And it’s in this space of “not knowing anything” that our awareness/love/presence is most happy!

Try it and see for yourself. For 1 min., just see what it feels like “not to know anything.” I.e., get quiet and tune into your breathing. And notice how much more you instantly become aware of in the space around you!

Suddenly, you become aware of the birds chirping outside, the sounds of the traffic, the room temperature, the pressure of your bum on the chair, the voice in the head, etc. And now, from this aware space, you can effortlessly witness the passing phenomena, rather than identifying with it.
