Roshitalks part two

The space of "now" is who you are. I am the space where everything take place, happens.

Awareness is Notknowing actuality or the fact of Notknowing. If you listen to this words, just said, through the filter of intellekt you miss it entairly, but if you listen to this lightly, there might be a recognition where it points to
Roshi

Realization doesn't destroy the individual any more than the reflection of the moon breaks a drop of water. A drop of water can reflect the whole sky.

Yes indeed, Roshi. Learning to listen and to "hold" everything lightly is very important. When we become attached to finding an answer, reaching a conclusion, finding security and certainty we limit and imprison ourselves. Listening and holding everything lightly allows us to see the bigger picture.

Yes Peter. It's amazing how the seeking, grasping is like a habit and as you put so clearly; "When we become attached to finding an answer", fixation. That "attachment" when we can see and recognize it, it starts to diminish by the awareness of it. To be aware of it is the secret. Lightly awareness what is in the "now".

cheers

Roshi :-)
