These pointers are only as powerful as you make them. To simply read them is to receive only the most superficial level. Read, then apply right away. Do your best to find your own way into what the pointer is pointing at. Try to have your own direct experience with the words. If even for a split second, move into the state of consciousness that the pointer is trying to evoke. Let go into the state of consciousness from which the pointer came.
You are not separate from this ever-present Now. Be still and ask yourself: Is there any difference between my experience of myself and my experience of this moment?
Always the same, yet ever fresh
Unfettered being, presence
Too close to find, too near to see
Trust that you are more than you think
Let go and know yourself as alert, spacious awareness
How could you be separate from this moment?
When would you be?
Where would you be?
Other than your imagination
How do we know something isn't real? Because it comes and goes. We are that which does not come and go.
At your core, there is a profound stillness.
An ever-present sense of you.
A you that is whole, free and at peace,
No matter the circumstances or conditions of your life.
It is available to you now and always,
For it is your fundamental nature.
Look for it with curiosity, persistence, and kindness.
Life is unpredictable
You, on the other hand, are not
You are ever-present, ever-fresh, ever-free
Know yourself as Now
Try to shift your focus
From fixing things
To letting go
If you’re looking for inner peace
Stop looking for answers
Answers are in the future
What you’re looking for is always now
Wakefulness itself is effortless because it's our original nature. It's staying awake that feels like work. Staying away is where the difficulty lies. But Being awake itself is free and easy.
Discovering inner stillness must be your foremost priority.
Otherwise, the rest of life,
in the form of thinking,
will always insist it is more important.
Isn't that really the final question. Am I willing to die to find out who I am? Isn't that really the last question? At least if you answer it, yes, it's the last question.
