Ahead, a large farm tractor, chugging along at 30 mph, created a four car backup on a long and lonely road in these desolate Bardo lands. “Why doesn’t he pull over?” my mind asked in frustration.
I LOVE my freedom, but that damn tractor won’t pull over.
I LOVE… (Love felt flowing toward the image of) freedom.
And suddenly I was no longer frustrated. Suddenly the mind was quiet. Suddenly I loved everything that my eyes saw. My eyes touched and caressed everything they fell upon.
Suddenly, I was no longer in the mind, but in the MOMENT.
Based on some of the comments yesterday, I’d say there were more than a few readers who understood why I awoke with tears of gratitude before writing that post. They see the significance of it, the implications of recognizing the felt nature of our core being: I LOVE (flowing outward).
The implications are simply this:
If you are NOT feeling I LOVE (pure Love flowing outward), then you are caught up in the mind.
When you pull away all the crappy stuff (the tractor), when you pull away even the object of your love (freedom), then you become the flowing, dynamic motion of Love Itself.
This could be a game changer (for my message).
Why? Because when you are NOT in the mind, then you are in the MOMENT.
And when you are in the MOMENT, then you are AWAKE.
