Seed inside a circle

Had a dream last night.

RECOLLECTION ….. an image of a seed inside a circle

FEELING …… amazement at how it could come to BE without having been in the earth’s “ground”

Which leads to deep contemplation today on so many levels……

Like, Are we asking the real questions?

Like What is TIME?

Just love this Watts Wave from Akira. I think it says it all ……

here are some highlights below, but so worth listening in entirety:

Why are you talking?

For the same reason the birds sing and the same reason that the stars shine! I DIG IT!!

I DIG IT!!   I DIG IT!!! I DIG IT!!!

Why do you dig it?

Well, I could go on and on but …..

explaining things by the past is really a refusal to explain them at all!

All you’re doing is postponing it again and again

it explains NOTHING

What does explain things is the present.

WHY DO YOU DO IT NOW?

It all starts RIGHT NOW.

Just as the sound comes out of silence, allness comes out of nothing.

All of LIFE suddenly emerges out of space BANG right NOW!

What are you doing NOW?

Freedom from being a puppet of the past

That is liberation

from the ridiculous situation of being a dog wagged by its tail.

TIME      TIME     TIME     TIME     TIME    TIME 

 

Nothing is missing

“Do something every day

it almost doesn’t matter what you do

Your interests will lead you there and it will dramatically improve your life

Habits are good

they can allow you to background process certain things

but we also unconsciously pick up habits and keep them for decades and don’t realize they’re bad for us

I don’t have time is just another way of saying it’s not a priority

Today I believe that happiness is really a default state,

when you remove the sense that something is missing in your life.

Not trapped in the web of desires …….
I NEED THIS, I NEED THAT, I NEED THIS, I NEED THAT, I NEED THIS, I NEED THAT

Happiness is the state when NOTHING IS MISSING

And when nothing is missing, your mind shuts down

And in that absence for the moment, you have internal silence

When you have that internal silence,

Then you are content and happy”
