What is the creator and why is it still creating? The experiencer and the experienced all coming from the same source. The question and the answer existing simultaneously. Who is this I inside of me? The goal is to get beyond labels and forms. yet there is no goal. The thought of this form is nothing more than temporary identification. An illusion. Should the past be treated as anything more than a dream? fragments of reality churned through infinite cycles producing identifiable patterns that represent our karmic burden.
@EckhartTolle explains that the key is to make everything a spiritual practice. If you have discontent with what you are doing, then you have not fully surrendered to the moment. You are finding issue, fault and want with what is in front of you. So, make everything that you do from driving to your interactions at work part of that spiritual in the moment practice. You may or may not notice the change, but the universal force will see a shift in your consciousness and big things will happen. Let go of expectations. Expectations bring disappointment and limitation.
The person is merely the result of a misunderstanding. In reality, there is no such thing. Feelings, thoughts and actions race before the watcher in endless succession, leaving traces in the brain and creating an illusion of continuity. A reflection of the watcher in the mind creates the sense of ‘I’ and the person acquires an apparently independent existence.
