Almost all of life is acting out of “residues” – thoughts, words, and actions arising out of deeply embedded patterns. Rarely do we rest in the freshness of this present moment, free of the past and future. Free of patterns. Free of suffering.
There is so much release, so much relief, so much freedom to be found in just letting go in each pristine, open moment. Every single second, we have this choice: pattern-bound thinking and its consequences or thought-free wakefulness. The secret is to simply return – time and again – to the sky-like space of the true essence of mind.
