One of the essential things that have been heavily veiled – indeed, obscured and obstructed by conditioned beliefs – is the fact that almost all of us are moving thru life, searching here and there, asleep at the wheel. A steering wheel that doesn’t work, like a circus bumper car. 🙂 We apparently live in our own private, me-centric fast lane; we’re constantly carried away from our self-nature by unsustainable delusions of pseudo living and reacting as if we’re separate.
Indeed, we’re driven, motorized, urbanized, cityized and otherwise transported by personal desires and fears into a constant anxious frenzy that propels us with fleeting pleasures and aching pains past the seemingly hidden off-ramps – past the innate quietude and spaceousness of our restful and peaceful nature.
A sustainable peace.
In fine, whatever sustainable ‘future’ mankind has will depend on the movement of spirit and the innate goodness of our being; on our individual and collective recognition and revaluing of that which is necessary to well-being – that deep need to live and relate fully, freshly and freely, to reality as it is, now – to the imperative that there’s really only One, whole, inter-related thing going on here, and that living as if we’re separate, is not, has never been and and can never be, sustainable.
Perhaps that recognition begins when we stop, look and listen, lovingly, intimately, sensatively; when we effortlessly, alertly attend to this timeless now, find a quiet space, aka choiceless awareness, abide easefully herein, and enjoy a little peaceful sauntering – meaning to visit the land of the saints, yes. 🙂
