Do you notice?

Right Now
Always the present moment
Not yesterday
Not tomorrow or later
But simply now
Always always now
Now on a chair, or a couch
reading these words
while we hear the slight buzz of our device
birds whistling
a dripping tap
thoughts about breakfast are passing
and the body aches still a bit from yesterdays exercise
This is where we are now until it changes into the next now
It is always Now you see.
But simply now.
Nothing special about the present moment.

Always right here
Not somewhere else
Some place else
But simply right here
In this location at this moment
Present moment awareness
Here is where the sensory perceptions are noticed.
The wind coming in through the windows 
touching the skin on the legs
The young rooster from the neighbours crying out
The wind rustling the leaves of the palmtrees
The fridge humming away
A mongoose mother and baby walking over the terrace
Simply here and now

Do you notice when the narrative of the mind 
with the stories about the person
and the past and the future subsides
life is whole and complete?
Full and alive
Simply here and now
Present moment awareness
Do you notice? 

And do you notice that nothing is needed to
make this happen?
Simply noticing this?
That it is already the case?

Knock knock

Hi Good morning,

Where are we?
Well here of course

And are we really here?

Fully, wholly, holy?
with all of our attention and presence? 

Or are there some pieces missing?
not yet included?

Hanging outside our conscious awareness? 

Buried themselves as a tension in the guts,
an ache in the back
or a numbness, a deadening in parts of our anatomy.

Whether physical or psychological.

Better not to feel?

Or shall we allow them in this time?

Do we hear them knocking on our doors?
An unease,
a sadness,

When at last we can include them into our existence, 
feel their pain of rejection and hear their stories
we might discover riches we did not know existed.

A Postcard from the Infinite

Who and what we are is This.

Undivided wholeness.

There is only the Divine.
There is only This. 

And in This and as This 
everything dances and moves.

How could it be otherwise?

( Even the separation and suffering
is the Divine feeling and experiencing
Itself through the body mind organisms
we have called ourselves. )

This is the case wether we are perceiving this or not.

If we have the intuition that this is True,
if something inside of us is resonating to these words,
it might be time to start looking at everything that
is blocking this perception.

What is it in us that is going against what 
we somewhere know to be true?

What are the beliefs and convictions 
which make us believe otherwise?

Question everything which blocks or doubts 
the truth of our own being.

Stop at nothing.

Find out what remains when everything else 
has fallen away.

p.s.  Write me a postcard when you do..  :-)
