ask, I wonder what's happening now?


don't guess or imagine or describe


watch


your body & mind are part of what's happening now


watch what's happening now


notice how body & mind keep existing & working, without you asserting control


watch


tempted to jump into the driver's seat, to assume control, to pursue an agenda, to act on an urge...


watch


recognize this itching-to-intervene as a fork in the road:


- jumping into your body & mind hurts them


- abiding & watching brings a healing fire to the soul


abide, watch


don't think of it as a performance or competition


think of it as setting all you love free, one moment at a time


abide, watch


if you do jump into body & mind, don't jump in after yourself


abide, watch


each time you feel the urge to jump in


abide, watch


as your trust in the practice grows


abide, watch, trust


you are reborn in your soul each moment, each heartbeat announces your rebirth


abide, watch, trust


your urges compel you into the body & mind, again & again, for one specious reason or another


abide, watch, trust


rather than acting on the urge, feel the urge, deep in your center


abide, watch, trust


the suffering you feel in that deep center is the urging - your karma - burning off & setting you free


abide, watch, trust


when you dive into body & mind, you stop the karma burn


when you feel the burn while abiding in soul, you gradually set the soul free from the domination of urges


abide, watch, trust


as your practice deepens, as your discipline improves, as your karma lightens, it gets easiers & easier


abide, watch, trust


who would've thought, all this epic heroism & courage we've always sensed buried deep within us, was never about worldly glory


it's always been fuel for this silent inner practice, this motionless yoga, this peaceful liberation of the soul


abide, watch, trust


as you practice consistently over time, begin to notice what body & mind are capable of when you aren't compulsively jumping in all the time


abide, watch, trust


notice how light & expansive you feel awing on the winds of spirit


abide, watch, trust


notice the mystery of existence abloom in the gladness & wonder of your trusting gaze


abide, watch, trust


notice the window of your soul growing less & less tinted, allowing the unconditional love at the core of your being to shine through more radiantly upon the world you are


abide, watch, trust


ask, I wonder what's happening now?


gently pat the center of your chest as you say,


abide, watch, trust
