It’s all Flow

100_4144All of our experiences, sights, sounds, smells and tastes are a flow.  Even our thoughts and sensations and emotions are a flow, are they not, of objects of attention, sights and sounds that we normally think of as “outside myself”.  So our bodies are rivers, massive and continually flowing rivers from what we imagined was outside of ourselves, as are our personalities, our identities, our emotional lives, our feelings and so on.  So the world is a river, and everyone else is a river, and you are a river and in fact billions of rivers, flowing endlessly without boundaries, this very instant.

Further, if you examine even more closely, you will discover that your are the water itself and the constantly changing earth upon which it flows.  You and everyone else, are the pure, intimate, infinite consciousness in which everything flows.

How amazing!

What a mystery.

So no body and no thing can ever be separate.

No body and no thing ever stays the same.

Abide and rest in this simple awareness, and your struggles with the world will come to an end.

– Scott Morrison
