Good morning friends.
I'm up; I'm ready for the day; and, yes, coffee — always coffee — is poured and placed by my keyboard ready to be drunk one small mouthful at a time.
And this morning's little ode is:
Oh, god, here he goes again.
No, seriously: this is what's coming up; in fact, I woke at precisely 2.10 am and the post was already written but I knew that I needed more sleep so, once I'd done my ablutions, I promptly lay down again and (thankfully) went back to sleep.
The thing is, I've been to a lot of talks by non-dual speakers; Tony Parsons was by far the most entertaining but that's for another post.
And they all said the same thing apropos the meaning of, well, everything:
"...there is just this."
To be the best of my knowledge, they weren't seriously challenged to answer the question: yes, but what is 'this' you're referring to?
Sorry, I should have said: I doubt very much if very many people are interested to explore life this deeply. They've not enough going on in their lives without having to constantly navel-gaze. But, I suppose, you do get to a stage in your life where you need to know more than how to get through the day and the one that follows. In fact, from my limited experience, most people, when asked, will be interested to know:
What's my purpose?
Why am I here?
What's it (life) all about?
Back to my this-ness point.
What's it all about?
The essence of this quote, perhaps:( Collapse )
