It always amazes me when someone can open up to such
profound truth so quickly as you have with your contribution
to desires.

There is such a thing as spontainous awakening. However whether
one is completely awake, or just beginning to open their eyes.
The practice is all the same. We must still show up each day and
be present in each moment to the best of our abilities for that
moment. Regardless whether we are experiencing exactly what
we desire or we are experiencing things that are less desirable.

Your statement makes sense to me that letting the process unfold
without escaping into what you would like it to be is the only way
to fully be present and experience the essence of what that moment
has to offer. As you speak of desires as complications you then
become your own witness in your involvement of these desires and
you realized that the common denominator for suffering was

So you surrender to that attachment and the majority of suffering
releases. It leaves you with your true self as opposed to your conditioned
one. This process allows you to see that being present by letting the
moment unfold without manipulation is the only real path to freedom.

When you forget this Cindy. Know that you are still loved and supported.
You are not alone and never will be. Know that everything is right there for you. Know that all you ever have to do is "Breathe and just be."

Much love yo you.

"The truth is utterly simple"..........aren't these complications of desires you speak of coming from the avenues of escape that one chooses? When you resist the impulses to 'escape' that have been 'conditioned' or etched in our minds.....and say YES to facing what you feel is suffering.........aren't you making the conscious choice to surrender, to stop the attempt of 'escape' just be.

Celebrate the moment.

An extraordinary friend shared with me the wonder of truth. The pure force of life: choice. To be present, fully present in the moment, we choose to. We can consciously watch our involvement in our desires and tell the truth. We should always allow ourselves to fully experience this truth, if it allows pain or pleasure into our experience, it is still 'energy' is is. There is no need to justify your desires, only allow yourself to consciously acknowledge the attachment to the desire.

"Truth is utterly simple"......Desires; just allowe....
