Just THIS: Both ordinary and Holy. New MJ Awakening Blog
November 25, 2019



There’s only what’s here/now in your direct experience. It’s the sense that there must be more than ‘just this’ that the mind throws up that keeps one seeking.

But no, there’s only ever just this, just whatever is happening, completely ordinary and divinely holy. Why? Because there’s nothing else.

No past, no future. Only ever this moment, however it’s appearing. Nothing to hold to. Nothing to let go of.

Noticing how THOUGHTS are forever trying to “fix” the Moment. New MJ Awakening Blog
July 9, 2019


My thoughts claim (and I believe them) that this moment is not enough.

That it is insufficient simply as it is.

And so I set about trying to “fix” the moment, over and over and over, endlessly, ceaselessly.

And suddenly, 50 years have gone by.

Exhausted, I give up.

And lo and behold, a great discovery is made.

That it’s in the total and unconditional surrendering to the freshness of this spontaneous moment that real magic happens…

And the wind blowing across my face is more than enough.

Realizing You’ve NEVER been out of the Now. New MJ Awakening Blog
March 5, 2019



“Acknowledging that there is nothing else can be made easier by deeply recognizing that it’s impossible to leave this moment. It simply can’t be done. This moment after all is the only thing that’s real. I’ll say it again: this moment is the only thing that’s real.

So if you can’t leave this moment, how often do you believe that you can?

Recognizing this fact can help silence the mind. After all, what more is there to think about once you acknowledge that past and future are an illusion?

There’s obviously no need to think about the present, so what need is there to think then? The more this becomes apparent the more you will awaken. Self-realization after all, is the realization of eternity… the truth that exists outside of thought.

The awakened state awaits you in eternity – not in time. Eternity has only one moment – this one.”

-Kyle Hoobin

MICHAEL: Worth meditating on deeply: “this moment is the only thing that’s real.”
