the trick to living naturally, fully and wholly

301

Is it true that living naturally, fully, wholly,
is something that one can turn into a goal,
an ultimate state?

Some say that the moment Life is assessed
by a cognizing process
and assigned a value on a scale of how-things-should-be,
the minute Life is seen to need changing
and plans are laid to alter Life’s flow –
that’s when Life’s lost.

They claim that’s when one begins to wonder
why the marvel of living has dried up,
why one feels only half alive, why one feels as though
drowning in a sea of ‘shoulds’.

However, these are devious dualistic perspectives;
they make grand promises they cannot deliver.

The trick to living naturally, fully, wholly
is simply to embrace the Totality of Life
and realize that you are inseparable from IT.

Whatever is happening is Life’s design.

If there’s desire to change anything, that’s Life’s desire.

If there’s desire to remember the Truth, that’s Life’s desire.
If one forgets to remember, that buck stops with Life as well.

And in case a crucial little line above passed you by
I will put it here, again:

… and realize that you are inseparable from IT…

    Does that mean that we wait for life to take its course even if we are in desperate measures, and wait for the eleventh hour to rescue us continually. Or is the desperate measure life itself and therefore do nothing but allow it to be.
    Or is the desperate measure caused by us and life would never put us in those conditions?

    Something I’ve been grappling with for some time.
    I thank you for your posts. They are something I look forward to regularly. They lift my spirit and give me reason to believe.

    1. Dear Carmelo – Thank you for your sincere question, a very good one too.

      Your three questions all presume a separate person who is waiting (for the 11th hour rescue), or doing nothing, or causing the problem itself. Have you found this entity?

      Yes we can find ourselves “in desperate measures” – as easily as we can sometimes enjoy a flow of serendipitous rightness. In either event, if we look deeply, we find that these experiences are impossible to separate out from our awareness of them.

      Whatever arises – good, bad or indifferent – can only be happening in the knowingness/awareness we actually ARE. That’s how we suddenly come to understand that this fundamental awareness is one and the same as Life itself.

      Desperate measures are Life’s play. When the split between oneSelf and Life closes, crises still come and go but one’s responses are more likely to be measured than desperate!

      I’m glad that you find resonance with the *echoes* – it’s kind of you to voice your appreciation.
