only here only now

Just before dawn the black night lingers.  The light from within transforms my windows into a set of hazy mirrors.

The last day of the year.   An ending that promises a beginning.  Resolutions to make the new year different from the old.

All a crippling illusion.

Resolutions are our pretense that we shall soon bring forth change. Shuttling between imaginations of the old and the new, judgments of the bad and the good.  Living for the shimmering portent of a change that never comes.

If we say that we resolve to live differently in the coming year, we are already lost.  Such resolution is existence deferred.

Our life is here and now.  Each precious and unique moment.

I lift my head and in the time it has taken to write these words, the dawn’s glimmer reveals the natural world beyond the still mirroring windows.  I see fresh snow blanketing the…

Learn to be wrong

…and in due time you’ll be right – without even knowing it 😉

A leap of faith

Mirrors of Encounters

His comment:
“The “leap of faith” you referred to resembles gambling because you are not 100% in on the outcome. Until you actually get the outcome. That’s probably why you couldn’t provide proof for me.”

My answer:
We are reluctant to investigate for ourselves, aren´t we…?
Cause if we unfold the path to self-discovery, we are never certain of the outcome.
We might win or lose…

Yet everyone wants to win, isn´t it so…? Who wants to lose…? We always want to play safe, don´t we…? – as we always want to have some gain, otherwise we don´t take the risk.

The very risk is to “invest” without having any guarantee as to the outcome.
That´s what Faith is about:

To learn to lose.

To lose it all…to empty yourself of any wish to follow anything or anyone – to learn to live with “no proof”, to discover…

Non-thinking is not the antithesis of thought

Nothing exists without me

…yet “me” doesn’t exist…

Questions and the questionless

Mirrors of Encounters

Let us ponder a moment – linger with every question:

Does Time exist?…
What exactly is Memory…? Who remembers what?…”What” remembers who?…Why…?

Would time exist if there was no remembrance…? If time and memory didn´t exist, could we ever speak about “Culture”?…- think about this… as for sure, what we call culture is the outcome of memory.

If memory didn´t exist, we couldn´t possibly speak about conditioning either, could we…? “Why” couldn´t exist if there was no conditioning, as conditioning means possession ultimately. Again, no possession – no Why.

So if time, memory, culture, conditioning and possession didn´t exist, there wouldn´t be such thing as “Knowledge” either…Yes, Knowledge is possession. Our conditioned knowledge and thirst to possess is called Science.

Subsequently, if there is nothing to possess, neither What nor Why would be any justified viable issues.

Now, this being said, I ask you: as there is no such thing…
