When concepts of “I” and “awake” and “enlightened” die, what happens next? In my last blog I said ‘Mystery’ is next. Mystery looks like a release of deeply held muscle tension. Hearing from a long-ago dharma buddy whose wife read my blog somewhere on Facebook. An offer to host an internet radio show for veterans, and a whole week of almost no work….like a vacation without the planning.
This Being, or whatever one wants to call it, doesn’t miss the “I” and it doesn’t miss “awake” or “enlightened.” The bodymind is more relaxed than it’s been in its entire lifetime. The spiritual/therapy group that I led last night was a ‘hoot’ as we say. (For those unfamiliar with American slang, we had a lot of fun and did a lot of laughing.) Lunch was delicious.
What’s next, after this blog is finished, is unknown. Not ‘good’ and not ‘bad’ just ‘unknown.’ There are some lightly held ‘preferences’ including the wish to work with all kinds of people from all over the world. How will that ever happen? No idea. Also, no idea if The Absolute cares about these particular ideas. “Doubtful It does” you say? “I” don’t know.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s episode of “Big Mystery Living as (little) mystery.” It promises to be as unexpected as today’s.
Have fun being the little mystery part of the Big Mystery that you are!
