Don´t subordinate Awareness to your idea of time

Emma:
Thanks to Eckhart I try to be aware of awareness all day but it only happens occasionally. I love it when I am aware like now. Thanks for starting my day with this reminder.

Me:
You see,

Let´s put it like that: Awareness doesn´t belong to Tolle, to me or to you. It doesn´t belong either to what we usually call chronological time. It doesn´t obey or fit in our classifications of time and space.

Thus, let it just happen “occasionally” – take it from there. Get to know its sparkling timeless quality. That means you need to learn to adjust yourself to the PULSE OF THE SECOND, as a new and real measure of time.
Pretty soon, you will realize that “the pulse of the second” is the only reliable measure.  To awareness, days, weeks, minutes or years mean naught as timeless time is simultaneous.

Therefore, don´t try to subordinate it your will or your idea of time – “be aware of awareness all day”.
Don´t control it in an attempt to prolong it…Whenever we try to prolong something, we prolong our ego and with it, our further suffering.

Only falseness can be prolonged, controlled and possessed.

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

    Pain and hard times and problems are great reminders since we can only stand these IN the moment but not FOR a moment (psychological time, momentum). Use it.

    And in addition: if You ask this question: What is my problem right now, in this very moment? The answer will always be: none. Because if we can’t define NOW, we can’t define all the other things as well. What a blind alley 🙂

    So you got to skip this alley ….
