The attention is free to move anywhere. Is it not? The attention does not have a static point or location. (Where are you seeing from exactly?)
The ever-fresh quality of awareness (attention) is not noticed due to a habit of fixation on ‘me’ and the ever-fresh nature of awareness is overlooked by the fixation on ‘me seeking’ something that appears to be missing. Nothing is missing, nothing is hidden and there is no secret knowledge. There is no esoteric realm. Ordinary everyday awareness is the overlooked gem.
Awareness (attention) is not limited to time or dimension. Awareness does not move. The moving aspect of awareness is called ‘attention’ and the attention ‘appears’ to move but it never strays from awareness because it is awareness. Awareness and attention – not two.
The linear sense of time passing is due to memory. Mind is time, mind is me and mind is memory. In the actuality there is no entity that has to learn to live in the now. There is no entity that can get lost or come home. The display of phenomena is the display of awareness. The apparent movement that appears to happen for the attention is actually stable and without deviation. It is only the fixation on an idea ‘me’ that appears to waver, come and go. What you truly are does not move. The definition of reality is ‘that which never changes’.
If you watch a bird in the open sky you may notice that the bird leaves no trace in the sky. You cannot predict where the bird will fly. There is no perceivable pathway stitched into the sky.
Observe the ever-fresh quality of the attention and let the observation dissolve into the attention.
All of our problems are due to fixations upon a conceptual centre and conceptualized boundaries.
Investigate everything and recognize that the attention is free to move everywhere without any need of belief. The immediate nature of life is spontaneous and ever-fresh.
Nature does not have a self-centre and any ‘time spent’ being ‘in nature’ has the potentiality of revealing that the nature in you and the nature outside of you (you in nature) are one and the same. Not two. Non Dual.
Awareness is timeless and non dual. Awareness is not divided by concepts and all the content of mind, past present and future has less substance than a puff of smoke. It is belief that gives concepts an apparent substance.
Awareness cannot be limited by any thing. The believed in entity is temporal, transient, an appearance believed in or not. The ever-fresh discovery of ‘insight’ is spontaneous and the apparent limitations of the ‘me’ are whittled away and insight is revealed to be nothing but ever-fresh seeing, right here, right now. No entity is seeing anything.
No one wants to acknowledge that because it means that all their personal dramas are empty. Psychological addiction to drama is based on the fear of being nothing.
Have the courage to be nothing and see what happens.
A clear glimpse of the true nature of ‘attention’ brings into question all of our beliefs.
Do you agree that the attention is relatively free to move anywhere? Is there ever someone who is psychologically bound to something? Wouldn’t it be wise to investigate who it appears to be happening to? Who is appearing to be bound? Isn’t it a significant thing to investigate? Find out for sure why the attention appears to get fixated on some ‘thing’? Why would the attention fixate on psychological suffering? What is the ‘glue’ made of?
Isn’t it true that psychological suffering is believed in due to the habit of belief in ‘me’?
Surely one can see that one needs to open the mind up, be open to ‘what is’ – be without judgement…. and be free of a dead image (me), a stale old idea of being a fabricated identity?
