"No one becomes enlightened because in actuality there isn’t anyone. Only within the story in the play of life does striving to transcend individuality appear to have validity." -- Nathan Gill

But, I've changed.
Neither have .
I know it's easy to get seduced by something shiny and new -- it never lasts, trust me -- but in the end, it amounts to the same thing.
There's nothing to do; nowhere to go; just be.
Our thinking mind though never sees it that way. It needs resistance or elation.
True self is true self -- we rest in awareness of (our) awareness.
Woo woo? Yes, absolutely, but only because you've never stopped to ask anything more fundamental than "What's next?".
Yes, my theme is repetitive but only because there's no gloss needed to paint a better picture than this moment.
I know your life may not be easy -- in fact, you're likely to be dying from the inside out -- but when you relax and let go of those heinous preconceptions, e.g. be this, do that and become that, life feels...well...a lot easier. Not easy, just not so repressive.
Next week for me will, I'm sure, be just as busy as this week but that won't change the fundamental recognition that life is everything and being in a better (or worse) job won't change that one iota.
If there's one observation I would make though, and I've talked about this in a podcast, is that work has taken precedence in my life. That's not a good thing. I'm making amends by letting go of any desire to be something more than just a bloody good lawyer and a decent bloke.
What about you?
What's happening in your life right now?
