One common misunderstanding is that once 'you have reached this':
Life looks different, more beautiful, there is an intensity, a strong sense of presence..
It is true there are moments, days that this is presenting itself.
And then a few days, a few hours later, the next morning;
the intensity is gone, everything looks same old, same old,
and the person is under the illusion that IT has been lost.
While there has never been a person to reach anything.
This is where the confusion is. A confusion of identity.
If you know yourself to be the open aware presence then
all unfolds in what you are.
And then how can something be lost if you are it.
Its just not possible.
Everything appears in what you are.
Also the headache and irritation on waking up,
also the weariness and tiredness in the body because of the heat.
also the ............................ etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.
Nothing is ever not seen by what you are.
Nothing is ever excluded by what you are.
You are the open aware space in which Everything comes and goes.
C'est la Vie.
