“If you cannot remove yourself from a situation, and there is no action you can take, then use the situation to make you go more deeply into surrender, more deeply into the Now, more deeply into Being.” Eckhart Tolle
My mother who lived to 102 used to say this about her health. “If I can’t get it fixed I accept it.” Actually, this is the recipe for awakening to your Being or life itself. Every situation is Just This moment. There is no way you can remove yourself from Just This. Oh, we can imagine being removed, having a better moment in time. But Just This is timeless. Just This moment cannot be different than it is.
This is the dance of Zorba. This is the laugh of. Zen. You can’t get out of the Koan. There is no way out of this present moment. There is no escape from Just This. Your intellect is of no use.
