Truth can be found in the most unlikely places. I was surprised to read the following as a chapter intro in a fantasy fiction novel. (The Farseer Trilogy, Robin Hobb)
“Stop thinking of what you intend to do. Stop thinking of what you have just done. Then stop thinking that you have stopped thinking of those things. Then you will find the now, the time that stretches eternal. and is the only time there really is. Then in that time, you will finally have time to BE yourself.”
If you’ve ever tried to “stop” thinking, then you will know what a process that is. But it can be done. It happens. And then the rest is a natural consequence, not that thinking ends, “monkey mind” ends and knowing begins. Knowing what is yours to do, knowing what is next to do, knowing that oneness IS.
Don’t be surprised if the experience slips away. That also happens, and it will find you again …and again.
