“Spiritual realization is to see clearly that what I perceive, experience, think, or feel is ultimately not who I am, that I cannot find myself in all those things that continuously pass away. Eckhart Tolle (from The Power of Now)
All is impermanent, all is transient, all is change. There is no fixed self or thing. We are all verbs, not nouns. This changes everything. There is therefore nothing to gain and nothing to hold. All is sand through my fingers, waters through sieve. The Seeing of this is my home on the crest of change. The realization of this, just this, is my surf board on the wave of life. One thought of clinging, one thought of gaining…I wipe out.
