Is life painful for you? Do you experience a subtle but constant disquiet and wonder, “Is this all there is”, “There has to be something more”. Have you tried prayer, meditation, yoga and other practices to find answers and some semblance of relief? You may experience periods of relief or even joy and peace as a result of these practices, but then it all starts again and the pain and longing for something more returns. The agony continues. Do you know why? We have forgotten who we really are. We believe we are someone living a life with very important beliefs and ideas. We believe we have problems and that we must do something to be better and happier. We are mistaken. This is not an abstract idea. This is not a goal to reach in the future. This is not something that requires belief. This is simply relaxing your focus from “the world” and giving your attention to what is happening right now. You think you know what’s happening, but you must admit that you don’t in order to realize the truth.
