life is supposed to be lived. what are you doing right now?
it's about the journey, not the destination.

This life is not a means to an end; it already IS the END.

the journey is the purpose. the destination is the illusion. The journey may be going thru a rocky road, but as your legs grow stronger you learn to stop falling.

the biggest mistake of man is assuming that things -- the Effect -- have to exist for a reason, and that they must have a "cause" which is different / separate from them in themselves. The Cause *is* the Effect -- there is no separation. What brings suffering to man is this eternal quest for meaning , purpose and justification that has nothing to do with Him or what he is experiencing. Experience, not mattering how intense or bad, IS the purpose of Creation. You are here for this purpose, cause this place provides many intense experiences.

once you reach a level you begin to understand that the only real purpose is a lack of one; the only real meaning is a lack of meaning. We are truly happy when we act spontaneously, without all the assumptions and the contrivance to obtain "results" and to reach for "answers". The only answer is no answer; the only answer is silent contemplation; it is learning to sit down , be still, and accept that which IS and not that which you WANT to be. Things are what they are, and they don't NEED any reason to to be. Man suffers greatly because he is always seeking for answers that do not exist. You have to STOP making questions to start KNOWING the answers. Ever seen those students who have to ask about everything during class? What would happen if they would shut up for a while to meditate on finding the answers themselves?

The Truth is right here and now -- it is what it is. Your tendency to desire for something "else", something that will take place "after" this life, and that will probably be "better" -- all of this already creates a separation in your mind, which breeds expectation, anxiety, and hence suffering. This is caused by your subconscious belief in duality still. Besides, suffering is rooted on desire.

This place is the only place to be. You couldn't be in a batter place than here. It's all happening according to the Plan, the Flow, the Higher Good. Your Higher Self will see it through that you go where you need to go. Thus, you do not need to concern yourself with the destination, you see? It's only the journey that matters. Make the most of it.

This is an illusion, a distraction, but a VERY necessary one. You must learn to cherish this life as if it was the only one you'll ever have. Technically we are all immortal spirits, but you'll never have another chance to experience this particular arrangement of sensorial inputs with the same intensity. It's like the first time when we hear a song... The first time is never going to be the same experience. Yeap, perhaps when you reach the 5th dimension you will be able to review this life over and over again, but it won't be the same.

THIS LIFE DOES NOT NEED TO HAVE "WORTH"

THIS LIFE DOES NOT NEED TO CONCEAL A "REWARD"

THIS LIFE DOES NOT NEED TO BE ONE OF "SUFFERING"

all of these are assumptions, which often remain unchallenged. Most people will not challenge the above, not even after you've beaten them down with a 10 inch pole.

doesn't matter what you believe -> life is always going to go ON or OFF outside of our control.. that is, we have no control over the "switch." But you can learn to enjoy both light and darkness; you can learn to adapt your senses to both until it makes no difference. And most importantly, you can learn to MANIPULATE this light or this darkness; you just cannot control when one is going to switch over to the other.

True happiness is happiness that remains with you in any situation. When you've found the 'Nirvana', it doesn't matter what happens to you... You could be falling inside a meat grinder and that wouldn't take your inner peace away, your inner light. When you possess the inner light, it doesn't matter if you are surrounded by darkness.

Why is that you believe that you need a particular place or favorable environment for you to be happy? This is a great limitation that you are imposing on yourself. THIS way of thinking in itself is precisely what is causing you to suffer. You are limiting yourself and thus you are negativing yourself. You have to change your outlook on the current situation to a more positive one. A positive outlook will attract more positive life events.

Waiting for a cake to come out of the oven. Waiting impatiently that is. In the meatime I'll watch a miniseries that I really like to take my mind off the cake.

After I finish the cake, I'll start planning what to eat next.

Well...I'm starting a week's vacation. With that in mind, I sanded down and then oiled all of our cutting boards with mineral oil, watched two episodes of Big Bang reruns, and discovered the joys of Black Box Chardonnay (never much of a wine drinker, but I can deal with this). LOL! Now, I'm sitting here trying to figure out what to do for the next two hours before I can go to bed. Do I break out the paint and start painting my kitchen trim or have another glass of wine and say screw it?
