Is it that finding one’s way out of one’s own normal, invisible, complex-dream condition can’t be done by proxy or by just asking?
Is it that all spiritual paths are individual even if some appear to be similar? Is it that everyone, in the end, is his or her own spiritual guru? The sages say that experiencing full awareness delivers a first-generation religious experience.
Could the greatest heroic act be the identity giving up itself on behalf of the being? Is this the adventure that many seek out when they begin to realize or suspect that there’s a lot more to life, and money, good works, power, fame, popularity or even poverty can’t make it happen?
Can a limitless world be discovered through a tear in the tent of language? Is finding time to relax the mind and actually relaxing the mind an art or is it warfare or is it both?
The sages say that seeking is the same as missing.
But they also say that seeking is fueled by desire.
And it’s desire that gets us into the ballpark.
The ballpark is the understanding there’s more to life and it’s available. And that more is communing with our body and the universe.
Getting into the ballpark eventually allows us to get out onto the playing field.
The playing field is a daily practice.
And a daily practice (some type of meditation) gives us the chance to get into the game of bonding with our own being and the universe.
And the game’s goal is to become silent on a regular basis and the sages say this makes us bait for the universe.
