If you want to know, you have to even let go of your yearning

My process has been one of realizing that my deepest yearning is to deepen my experience from moment to moment of what I (and many others) call the NOW. This space of the NOW, for me, has the meaning of entering each new moment in this mysterious life with an untouched direct perception, not tinged by past experiences, be they pleasant or painful. It also means to not waver from this immersion in this NOW and entertain mental images about what we call the “future”.

What many people call “now” is oftentimes another illusion.
NOW has nothing to do with “yearning”, “deepening” or “experience”.
The hardest one is that if we yearn, we will have even more yearning but not the object of yearning…
Now is inconsistent as It exists in non-existing.

It is like trying to seize a dream. How can we then long for something non-existent?

Can experience ever know anything about something which is totally unknown,
outside its “tinged” range of perception?

When we become immediately aware of this subtle insight, only then
What Is Beyond Dream can make Itself known.

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.

    Define experience, please. In regard to a subject and no subject, as in some/no-one having an experience, in presens, and experiences, past term.

  2. Yes, living without any concepts is most difficult, I find, although intellectually I understand that that is the beingness that is not caught up in experiences. I love Krishnamurti speaking of the flowering of thought that then reveals itself for what it is: “nothing”. When I re-cognize that yearning leads me nowhere, and yet I experience yearning, however faint, what happens for me is that I follow the trace of this “what is” at that moment, and let it show itself. My experience is that it then dissolves without residue.
    Again looking at NOW – it is of course just a word, and the existential sense of it has nothing to do with that word or any other – here on in there is actually no scope for words. This is my own exploration and my responsibility to let go of everything that could “tinge” my perception. Yes, you are right: only then can It show itself – with emphasis on “can”.
    Thank you for opening up this exploration!

      I am grateful for this dialogue – I hear you
      you hear me, we back each other in further “grasping” the un-graspable and this is
      the precious gift of real comunicaton.

      Intelectually we can speak of thirst or hunger
      but it makes no difference…First we bow and drink directly from the Source we may know
      what quenching Thirst is about
