"Once you become
accustomed to experiencing
what is here beyond your thinking,
(call it presence, awareness, consciousness)
then all that is left is to keep your focus here.
Which is the same thing as saying
to stop being identified with your thoughts,
to stop being involved with your thinking.
This seems simple enough
and would be quite easy
if it wasn't for self-importance.
A thought arises
and immediately you give it importance.
You think it is something that needs attention;
something that needs to be dealt with
or indulged or figured out.
You place more importance on the thought
then you do on awareness
and then awareness flys out the window.
That is why meditation
is so important.
You give yourself time every day
'for this period of time
my focus will be
solely on awareness.'
Because then when the thought arises
about what you have to do for work tomorrow,
you will be willing to let it go
because you made the commitment to do so.
And because you have that time every day
that you use only for the purpose of awareness,
that awareness begins to overflow
into the rest of your day.
So that you will be driving to work
and without any effort or reason
you will find yourself
in a sublime state of peace.
