Since we can´t handle Now, we strenuously turn this present moment into a
remote ideal. Our now-s become unfailingly something to be reached instead of
something to live.
The only thing we do is creating distance. Distance to anything.
Distance to Now, to who we are – above all, distance to Life itself.
This distance between life and idea is Fear.
Can you see that?
Fearing who we are, we resent all direct encounters,
including the encounter with ourselves.
Invariably, we end up interpreting everything …

One of the milestone steps towards this is to get rid of all conventional definitions. I know, this seems so be contradictory and it surely is sometimes. But that’s also a part which has to be learned. You got to skip all the sometimes so hardly learned patterns. You got to skip all thoughts about the past and the future.
