Day 10

What about not knowing?

What about giving up?

What about having NO STRATEGIES?

What about being utterly and completely helpless in the face of the unknown?

What about the fact that anything that I could possibly know with the mind couldn’t possibly be it?

A beautiful tension exists between knowing and not knowing.

What about sitting still, paying attention and being relaxed and not having any idea about anything else?

Why waste time trying to figure everything out?

I am discovering a thrill in realizing that it is possible to follow the meditation instructions perfectly and to sustain that practice indefinitely.

That is when real depth becomes possible.

The only bigger thrill is the dawning recognition to know that I can find liberation here and now
