Don’t go back to sleep.
Wake up to what truly is.
It is an exciting time for awakening
where realization comes easily
where past and future has no actual meanings
other than mere storyline arising in the Now.
as each story continues with a sequel
Storylines upon storylines
stacking up the Now
making what in origin eternity
now a glamor story of beginning and end
yet the end is still not truly ended
whence then can there be a real end?
Continuation is not eternity
as it has past to determine it
and future meanings to hold it tight.
thus beginning and end is but an illusion
played up by perception of memory flood
making each story a juicy fluid
and each experience a meaningful dream
of which there are times nightmare too.
Yet meaning or no meaning are still “meanings”
locked within the time bubble of falseness
away, totally forgotten, the “meaninglessness”
meaninglessness to you portray doom and helplessness
Yet that is not what it means
Except a meaning put by you.
Consider a time—if ever “time” does ever exist
No one object has a meaning
Until an idea of a meaning springs into mind
Now no longer a object but simply meaning
Even that what is “an object”?
Except another meaning to That?
What then is “That”?
“That” is “What” – do you not see how meaning work?
Thus shut-up, keep still
Be silence and stop all doing
Only then what is beyond “meaning” emerges
Unfolding for you to realize
What true meaninglessness is –
Have you ever noticed that your experience can never be in the past or future except in the now? More accurately will be – have you ever realized that the past and future cannot be experienced?
I invite you to consider a little exploration with me. Do take notice of your seeing, smelling, touching, tasting or even hearing. They are the doorways to your “experience” for each moment; whichever doorway you are giving attention to – that is where your experience is. (The meaning “experience” is where attention is given to it.) Hence when you are attending to seeing and not giving attention to the touch, say your legs in contact with the ground, your experience for that moment is merely seeing and not the legs touching the ground. Yet, are you fully aware that the seeing can only happen in the now, not even a split second in the past or future? Do you notice you can’t “see” future or past except constantly now. Even your ability to see movement – which is a combination of the so-called past and the now is not actually seeing per se but rather memory+seeing at this now. Without perception at work in recalling each moment, your seeing “now” has no meaning of movement except what it sees now. In other words, if one’s memory does not function at all, 100% unworkable, one will be transported into a dimension of total forgetfulness – not truly forgetful as the meaning of forgetfulness does not even arise since there is no past for him to “forget”, not to mention remember.
Similarly if one has no ability to imagine, to mean the function of perceiving the future, one will be in a limbo of simply now all the time, without the future or past haunting him. Hmm… wonder what will it be like? Past or future is simply the work of perception – an imaginary experience that is constantly occurring in the Now. You have never left the now, nor will you be escaping from the now, at all. Can you? Even when you are asleep and dreaming, the experience is constantly now, in whatever experience you are in, albeit merely a dream unbeknownst to you until you wake up from it. Even that is memory working when you realize it was just a dream. Bizarre isn’t it? Now don’t try to think I am a weirdo to figure out this concept as it is not something that you can think about except to realize. And to substantiate my realization, even quantum physics does have proof that the world “out there” does not truly exist – strangely, it was found there is no “out there” except a projection of the mind! If it is merely a projection, where then is realness of past and future, except the now? But wait a minute, if past and future is imaginary, what then about “Now”, you may question?
Is “now” too imaginary? I will leave this to your own realization – if “now” is so-called “middle” of both past and future – where will there be middle if there are no both ends to substantiate it? So is there a “now” without both ends of past and future coming into equation since they are all but imagination of perception in the now? Happy realizing!
