Arrive. Arrive in this life completely.
To arrive does not mean to seek for that moment between past and future. That snippet of time cannot be determined nor held. Seeking in this manner, is an intellectual activity that assumes a persistent, yet changing self that is separate from that which is sought. We assume that some sort of intellectual straining will bring us to the present—as if we could bring our awareness to a point-like unit of time. This is like attempting to be two places as once.
The secret that is never hidden is that we are never removed from the currently unfolding expression of Now. Never is life unfolding at some other time or some other place.
Do not dwell in fabrications and assumptions of mind. Let go and arrive.
Precise effort allows for mind to dwell in life currently unfolding.
Life currently unfolding is offered constantly.
Life currently unfolding is revealed when the idea of a separate self is has vanished.
Arriving as life currently unfolding, participation is not bound by ideas of self, self-interest, self-fortification, self-protection. Arriving as life currently unfolding, participation opens to the cries of the world.
