when i read thich nhat hahn i feel like my brain re-opens for a second, for an exxciting blinding flash, opens back up to the way it was when i was a kid and felt like freedom was everything---when being a super-sponge, experience-gathering, curious, fascinated explorer is an every day thing. before stuff starts stifling you--before you start worrying--before you lose your innocence. and worry about what people think. before you start learning to hate yourself. before you start fearing things and start trying to control things. when you are unencumbered by doubt, everything is fun and an expression of yourself, where every thought is let in and not really judged. then it goes away. then trying to get there again --well, that's the surefire way to scare it away forever.
everything is mental
the moment is everything
breath is life. the heartbeat is the present, the moment, the breath, the energy
that infinite moment
life is intinfite
life is Everything in a Moment
life is Everything NOW--too much to even process
we just get billion glimmers/flashes in every moment--- we can see them all, but so blocked and protected and denial-dulled we can only choose to see a few (cuz those channels need to be opened) really
PICK YOUR FILTER FOR THE DAY. BECAUSE YOU CAN DO ANYTHING. YOUR BRAIN STORES EVERYTHING. DIRECT YOURSELF TO ONE OR MORE. YOU CAN CHOOSE. IT'S ALWAYS YOUR PICK. BUT YOU HAVE TO NOURISH THE GOOD ONES. INVEST IN THE GOOD WAYS.
FILTERS: Guilt; Sliding-Doors Re-creation: Endless Possibility; FEAR (general and/or specific); Body-physical feeling/activity/ Observation; Worry-future; Practicality (Cold/harsh); Regret-past (connecting backward, lingering there; External Over-sensitivity; Flush of Love---uncrushable, indiscriminate, all-forgiving, teflon-proof good-feeling (UNCRUSHABLE), magical, sparkling, sparkly cloud (ego-involvement, consciously oblivious, impermeable to doubts, worries, sadnesses--don't remember what "sad" feels? whats that?-- i love the whole world! i love EVERYONE and EVERYTHING! (form of denial, blocking off, ultimately UNcompassionate. happiness is selfish?
floating in a bubble
