Existence is as existence does

You never know what you’re going to get. The many different; infinitely many possibilities in which existence manifests at every moment yet it still picks out the perfect thing at the best possible moment astounds me. This writing happen would not be possible without that intuition, this ancient knowledge that never ceases to be. It cannot ever be something other than what it is. You cannot be apart from what you already are. Seeing and admiring anything is just another part of existence being what it is, in admiration of what it already is. The story unfolds just as it should at every moment of every passing breath. The poetry in which it weaves for itself, and even down to the nitty gritty of the devastation that is happening, could  not be anything other than it is.

In Vanilla Sky (one of my favorite movies), Tom Cruise’s best friend says, “the sweet just isn’t as sweet without the bitter.” This is saying that we would know nothing of the magnificent thing that is, in this case we call it Existence without both sides of the same coin (bad and good for the label preferred mind).

Thinking back on what life was like before realization, there really isn’t much to tell besides that fact that it really isn’t about the character that plays in a story, although those things still do happen, and there is nothing wrong with preferential; there never really was. Everything is exactly as it should be, even the judgement that take place on a day to day basis. These things can and will all be adjusted as the eternal seemless part of existence adjusts to the residing awareness within it.

I say it is seemless, and here is why; there is no such thing as past moment and future moment except through mind stuff. Looking through the surface of what seems this way shows that time/space is actually eternal and continuous stretch of life, that there is no beginning and no end. The continuity only seems to stop and go because the mind is making sense of how the body reacts to unconscious and conscious action. There is no actual today or tomorrow, because where is the actual beginning and end of this moment right now, and how can you gauge which answer would be right? the answer is, is that it can not be gauged aside from thought and opinion on when one day starts and another one ends. What is always there however is this moment right now, no matter how you slice it, even if you aren’t here in the mind sense, you are still here.

What is being said is that regardless of what you may think you may having “control” or “not control of” in terms of some life that some “liver” is doing, it has nothing to do with existence just being what it is. Even this is within what is, and there is nothing apart from it. There never was and never will be. Existence moments of brilliance will never cease as there is nothing to cease. There is nothing to die because there was nothing ever really born; it has and always will be here regardless of the bodies creation and fall.

The body is like a boat which is cast from one shore to another, and when the journey is reached, the boat is discarded. That doesn’t mean the journey has ended, it just means that there is transition in the enternal continuity.

I’ll leave you with this beautiful video of existence. This is all inside you.
