The simple, most utterly obvious and unavoidable state of Beingness is the very thing we imagine to be complex, hidden, and therefore needing to be sought via an infinite array of practices.
I came down a pathway which attempted to get at this simplicity by examining deeply and interminably the mental dynamics that sabotage one’s clear seeing/experiencing of It.
Perhaps it was a worthy pursuit – it was surely interesting and entertaining – but in terms of leading me closer to ‘It,’ it was a total waste of time. It made no difference whatsoever to simple Beingness – which silently ‘watched’ the goings-on, immovable and changeless.
Eventually it all ground to a halt – the inquiry, the seeking, the fascination and the endless construction of concepts. And there I was, right back AS I’d begun on Day 1, Breath 1: Beingness – simple, obvious and unavoidable.
It is surely the most amazing and incomprehensible of things that turning away from the mind machine and embracing the inescapable Light of Being is so darned difficult for most of us.
Nothing – nothing – could be easier. It is now! It is this! It is here!
