Your life is slowly slipping away! Are you living each day fully? There is something marvelous about this fleeting life. You will discover the beauty in brevity of this life once you see it AS IT IS.
What torments you is not the lack of time. You are unhappy because you miss the moment.
You are too busy preserving it rather than living it!
If you take this moment and live it for what it is, you won’t regret.
Once you accept completely that life is fleeting, it becomes blissful.
There is so much joy everywhere if only you respect everything for what IT ACTUALLY IS.
When you let a happy moment be happy and a sad moment be sad, you will find the hidden bliss.
The castle in the sand is washed away by the waves but there is a beauty in it.
You can paint a new picture. You can rewrite your story.
If you realize the importance of fleeting moments, you will begin to relish it. It is in the small things of life that you will find true peace.
Since you never live in the moment, you lose it. You miss the greatest gift that you have been bestowed. THIS VERY MOMENT is a great gift which you need to live.
You miss the joy in life because you want to keep improving it. The beauty in brevity is your doorway to freedom. You can only realize it when you relinquish your desire to improve upon this universal creation.
The awakened one does not find anything to do. He has no TO-DO list. Since he finds perfection in this very moment he is living. Nothing he finds to improve upon. For the awakened eternity lies in a fraction of a second. This very moment he finds true perfection.
The idea that you can improve upon something is the cause of your worry. People go on forming aims and ambitions because they think they can improve.
You are not satisfied with who you are. That is why the concept of time. You need more TIME. More time to improve. You need more time to enjoy. You need more time to develop.
What You do not see is that you are already there. You are already eternal and perfectly fine. There is nothing you can do to improve. Nature is already perfect.
Once you awaken to this truth, you will understand why Zen is about ‘doing nothing‘. “Sitting silently, doing nothing. Spring comes and grass grows by itself.”
That is Zen. That is the perfect imperfection which Zen finds. The awakening is just a moment away. And you find it in the brevity of existence. You do not need MORE time. One second is enough.
Why you want to keep improving? (Answered)
We believe that the world before us is less perfect. We actually ‘HATE’ it for what it is.
Therefore we keep trying to improve it. We keep trying to improve our lives.
On a physical and mental level you CAN improve. But on a Spiritual level, you CAN’T.
You need to understand why i am saying this. Meditative awareness will help you realize this fact.
There is ABSOLUTELY no scope to improve Spiritually.
AND THE REASON IS……………….
You are already perfect! You are already that which you are seeking!
It is because you do not realize this fact that you want to improve.
Long is boring. Short is Sweet
Have you heard long lectures?
Have you traveled great distances?
Have you watched a long movie?
Something running non-stop will lose its charm.
It’s only when there is an End, will it be sublime and elegant.
The End is very important. It is the culmination and perfection of the moment itself. If you become complete with it, you will attain your true nature!
Finishing with the moment itself (perfection explained)
If you follow this moment and be with it till the end, without fail; You will reach perfection. Not because the moment is perfect, but because You are perfect.
Do this simple activity:
Right now, whatever you are doing, concentrate on it. Do it with grace. Now listen to a voice/noise outside your room. Slowly bring your awareness from the thing you were doing to the noise outside.
Slowly progressing from this to the next moment, there is a moment of transformation. Watch that moment in between.
This exercise above will help you finish the moment perfectly.
You must understand that when you are done with whatever you are doing, you are done!
Live each day fully and die at the end of it. This will lead to liberation.
Once you find yourself in tune with the fleeting existence by not fighting with it, you will live each moment perfectly without effort.
This will be the dawn of a new era in your life. The life that was fleeting will look extraordinary. There is the beauty in brevity and there is the eternity too. Both are one!
Once you discover this secret of eternity tangled in fleeing moment, you will be free. You will discover the Oneness of existence! Your life will become a celebration.
Awake to this fragile life and discover the eternity in it.
There is no heaven up there. There is no hell. It is all here. In this moment itself lies the gateway to bliss!
