A natural being feels world cleanly, whereas an “I”, full of beliefs and ideas of self, overlays those unadulterated feelings with external content, imbuing them with emotional “charge”. This charge is reactive to world around it, continually creating conflict as it attempts to dissipate.
(Modern research shows that there is a gap of approximately half a second between body/mind’s initiation of a physical action and our conscious intention to do so. This suggests that body/mind acts according to its belief instructions, not any conscious intention. The “I” is just along for ride – late - while pretending to be in charge.)
What comes out of moment relates only to that moment. It’s already past and non-existent as it is experienced. To hold to anything experienced or said in that moment, is to live in dead past.
If you can’t touch it, show it, taste it, does it have any reality? That’s not to say it isn’t real, but it may not be real. It could be a construct of ideas.
Whatever is actual or real can only be there when all ideas, all thoughts, all belief, all traces of identity are gone – when there is no “I” left to take us out of moment. If eternal now moment is all there is, this is only way to be in it.
Thought is only necessary, only of any use, when it is called for by moment, for a particular task. To keep thinking beyond particular call of moment is same as keeping your arm above your head all time, or holding your stomach muscles tensed all time.
If you took every real momentary experience of natural being – smell of a flower, a sunset, death of a friend, a humorous situation, movement of smoke on wind – all of these in every moment, but with no self, no “I” there to even be aware of these things, this is state of natural mind.
