Now


„Nothing other than the configuration of life as it is now appearing is possible. 
All is happening exactly as it’s ‘meant’ to. 
If separation and seeking are the case, 
then this is it. 
If recognition and resting are the case, 
then this is it. 
Whatever is now - however ordinary or extraordinary - is it.“

Sacred experience


„The flower is strong in its beauty as it can be forgotten, set aside or destroyed.“
 J. Krishnamurti 

Some words have power to stop the mind. And when it moves again, it is slightly different. 
Human being is also strong in its beauty. And it can also be forgotten, destroyed.
Human being knows many nuances of being. Human experience encompasses whole spectrum of states. 
It’s very core is elusive and unsubstantial. 

Human’s body with its very intelligent design, yet very fragile and destroyable. Brain with its electric sensitivity producing various sensations. Lots of passing phenomena and delusional perceptions seem to be involved in this experience.
And human being, conscious being begins to ask the questions. 
What is real?
Who am I?
Am I?
I?
Is there something here undeniable real? Something that can't be destroyed?
Mind, consciousness turns around, inward, bends to itself.
There is something. This. This which is - everything.
It can be felt always before, after and in between; unspeakable feeling of aliveness, awareness, with no detectable beginning or end.
Could it be called Life?
Life is indestructible. Spirit of life, not the manifestations of life. 
Manifestations know birth and death. But spirit of life lives; eternally.
So the human being is a combination, cross section of destroyable and indestructible. Being aware, being able to create human being is life itself. But only potentially, when free. Free from beliefs and adopted structures of thoughts. When cleaned from past.
Human being is able to go beyond time and space, through the now. 
Not by coming to any special sacred place, not by any method requiring time. Time is thinking, thought movement. And liberation is beyond thinking; Beyond space and time created by mind movements. 
Thinking is always something second-hand, so neither authentic nor sacred. Only first-hand experience can be really liberating.
Only seeing the facts, without interpretation brings sacredness of life into a human life. In any ordinary moment or place. In Now - free from artificial divisions. Even free from division on inside and outside.
There can be no sacredness “outside”, because it is thought projected and thus always dividing.
It is conceptual and dualistic, having always the other, non-sacred pole.

„But there’s a sacredness which is not of thought, nor of a feeling resuscitated by thought. It is not recognizable by thought nor can it be utilized by thought. 
Thought cannot formulate it. But there’s sacredness, untouched by any symbol or word. 
It is not communicable. It is a fact.“
J. Krishnamurti

Living Life


Is it possible to live without belief in being a concrete, separate entity?
How all these categories are actually connected? What is real center, source and substance of life? Is it same, or different for everyone?
What does it mean to be a human being?
Is it just a dream? Dream of/in awareness, consciousness? Are we at the same time dreamer, dream and dream-character?
Is it just nothing that appears to be something?

Are there answers on all these questions?
Can the life be answered, or just lived? Living life as an answer?

Maybe the truth is really very simple, while the life seems to be complex when thought about.

The key for the unlocking the mystery can be only in honesty; In living life honestly.
Which means listening intuition’s whisper, so called voice of the silence, making accordingly step by step; With as less as possible interpretations, plans and judgments about life. Just feeling what is, what feels right and doing it.

There is a reason for living life through unique personality. It has to be seen through. How it reflects light at which angles, which colors it produces best. It is an instrument with its characteristics, neither good nor bad, but can be used in this or that way. 

Living honestly means questioning source of all impulses if they are really impulses toward more freedom and greater light/life expression, or they are just masked, from illusion originating, illusion perpetuating attempts.

Real goes always towards unity, freedom and love. Never to isolation and separation. But at the same time it means daring to stand on your own, to stay quiet with whatever arises and to think originally, which comes naturally from the silent acceptance of the unknown and conscious intent to look for the truth.

The genuine insights are not accompanied by any belief, neither by feeling of being a separate identity. They are universal, like pure light, pure clarity and knowing merged with ‘knower’. The entire manifestation is known to be an appearance in that formless knowing which is neither within nor without. Even though the body appears to be the host of the consciousness, it is known as a living appearance, as other seemingly different appearances, having no substance apart from the activity of immediate cognition.
That is knowing - that what you really are - not what appears to be - you have always been, and will be. What prevent seeing are various stored data, beliefs and fear of being nothing. But all that can’t survive light sword of honest questioning if it is true.
Whatever your background is, whatever spiritual or philosophical direction you find yourself in, the unchanging true essence of being is the same This; One without a second, regardless of all appearances.

So, the only answer on all the important life questions is in living Life honestly and courageously, always from the point of here and now, from new insights, not from memory, letting this One to be uniquely manifested; Living and speaking the truth, which is truth reflected from your heart and mind, in accordance with your own experience.
