It’s a mystery

Monday, July 14th, 2008

I must admit, life is a complete mystery to me at the moment. I have no idea what is happening. That is not to say that there are no opportunities; there are plenty. And that is good. Each of them is a different future, each is uncertain and each requires cultivation. The only thing I can rely on is meditation and the cultivation of inner qualities. And that is good.

It’s actually quite interesting watching how everything is unfolding. If love is letting go of fear then I’m certainly learning to love life.

Eckhart Tolle’s view that the presence is here and now and can only be attained here and now it strikes me is right. And I like Krishnamurti’s uncompromising commitment to inner peace.

Could I say that uncertainty like certainty is also an illusion? Both thoughts are projections of identity into the future, creating a lack of focus on the present moment.

Eckhart also says that when you live in the now that you know exactly what to do. Perhaps he’s right.
