creating boundless space in our lives

Freedom from your mind

Most people have noisy minds. They are preoccupied with things to do, things to think about. They want the various forms in their lives to satisfy the formless. This leads to constant frustration because the formless comes from within their being and so can never be satisfied by forms.  For instance: they buy an expensive car (form) to make them feel successful (formless). The car may satisfy them for a while but then somebody else drives a much more expensive car and then they become unhappy because someone else is more successful than they are. They experience the polarity of forms: first there was happiness and then there was unhappiness. Forms are never enough so the mind looks somewhere else to fill that which can not be fulfilled. How do we free ourselves from the mind’s constant need of not enough?

The key is to let the formless flow into form. How do we do that? We start by observing the procession of things that happen in our lives  without getting entangled with them. In other words, we accept what happens without judgment. This stops the mind from its noise-making activities because it is no longer fighting what is. We are then able to have space within ourselves. This enables the formless to flow into form so magic can happen. Right things happen at the right time with the right people when you allow things to be. This moment is the best.
