Nothing is permanent in the way that you think. You assume that
you have consistency or constancy, but it is an illusion. It is
a very big illusion. Look! Look closely! Your entire life is built
around an idea or assumption that you are something real. The body,
the mind, thoughts, feelings and even the 'I' itself are only passing
fancies. There is nothing consistent there.
If you are willing to let go (how does a non-entity let go?) you
will find only the aliveness of consciousness - the expression of
the Almighty dancing in a million, million particles of light. No
person. No one thing experiencing other things. Only the inexpressible
Absolute, dancing its dance. I (who do not exist) wish that I could
somehow express clearly and totally what this is. It is the most
remarkable feeling - the most beautiful Being - and yet there is
no one here to experience it.
Recognize that everything that you think you are is just a thought.
The body is impermanent. The thoughts come and go. The sense of
self is only a sense. There is nothing of 'You' left after that.
There is only happening happening. That is the freedom - freedom
to pretend to be watching or participating in the expression called
life. It is far, far more and far, far less than you could ever
conceive of. There is ABSOLUTELY NO ONE HERE.
