What changes after the illusion of being
a someone has fallen away?
What is different when the personal
energetic contraction has evaporated?
Well actually not much.
Before things were just happening
and after things are just happening.
An illusion is gone, that is all.
But...an illusion is real
before it is seen as an illusion.
Therefore the illusion of being a someone
who is in control has an enormous influence.
Because of this belief we think and act
as if we are responsible for our actions.
And we are trying our level best to make our lives
successful, happy, prosperous, comfortable, meaningful etc.
And we become frustrated, irritated, upset, tense,
( in other words we resist )
if life is not going the way we want.
What if we had no control over any of this and never had?
Do we choose our genes, DNA, our country of birth
or our gender?
Do we choose the events, calamities, actions happening
to us, or the people we meet?
Do we choose our moods, our depressions and irritations?
And do we choose our thoughts and inclinations?
Or are things just happening?
What if there never was control?
When the belief in this illusion has fallen away
we fall into the openness of life
In free fall.
When the personal contraction
has nothing to hold on to anymore
we surrender to unknowing.
Like a child carried by its mother.
Like a leaf blown by the wind.
The bliss of letting go.
