Y2 – Day 243 – Ambiguity

The Ambiguity of Life

The uncertainty we feel and the vague moment to moment and “What comes next?” or “Now what?” question is part of reality.

On the one hand, it is always the first time and the gloriousness of change and movement and momentum is infectious and never boring.

On the other hand, the ambivalence can be frightening and unsettling.  Those of us who desire security, structure and knowledge can never be guaranteed stability.

We have to make friends with the incertitude.  We need to come to terms with the fact that we do not know anything, cannot predict anything and that anything can happen at any time.  It takes courage to live in that awareness and perhaps that is why many find it difficult to meditate.

Awareness is always meditating on something.  You realize you are not the experience but a part of the experience.  You understand that the truth is beyond the mind.  Meditation brings mindfulness and erases the needless chatter.  In deep presence of your soul, you even feel your blood flow.  With profound contemplation, you encounter your body and realize you are not your body.

Be willing to master yourself.

Good blessings come when you let go.

Dismantle your imagined self and become your reborn self.

We have constant opportunities to let go.

In beginner’s mind or “I don’t know” mind, we can receive the gift of optimistic potentiality.

In your meditation, inquire, “Who am I?” and then stay in the place of “don’t know”.

What is God?  God is the witness of your mind in the micro cosmic orbit of “don’t know” mind.

Part of Verse 33 of the Tao Te Ching

Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom.

Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.

If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.

Part of Verse 65

When they think that they know the answers, people are difficult to guide.  When they know that they don’t know, people can find their own way.

You have all the answers inside of you.
