You are the space in which thoughts appear. That space is silent, all-encompassing, embracing, and allowing. It receives and allows everything that’s happening without being touched by it.
You are that silent, yet deeply rich and infinite, space. The space becomes filled with chatter at times, but the space remains the same: pure, unblemished, and unchanged.
When you put your attention on that space or on the silence in between the thoughts, you fall into it. You become it, if even for just a brief second.
The more you notice that space, the more familiar you become with it, and the more you are able to see the truth about it — that it is who you are. That silent, all-accepting conscious space is what you and what everyone and everything else emanate from. Consciousness is what you are.
Living in the Now
It all boils down to now, this moment.
The experience you are having right now is it.
The present moment is life—it’s what is real.
And the moment is just what it is.
You can pile all the thoughts,
feelings, and imaginations
that you want into this moment,
but this moment is still just this.
