The Illusion of seeking

As long as we believe we are on the way to something; something better, nicer, more exciting and so on, we are overlooking or denying what’s here right now!  Seeking is based on the illusion of (psychological) time, the idea that “I” can get something and “arrive” somewhere in the future, isn’t it? It seems this is a very common belief.

The mechanism of seeking is independent of what is being sought, it could be anything really; a better version of “me”, a better job, a new car, a holiday, more peace or happiness…etc. The list is endless, we add things to it every day.

But what does it mean to “get there“, to finally arrive, to be fulfilled? Is that possible at all or is it in fact an illusion?  To seek is to deny the very moment that one actually is alive, isn’t it?

Could it be that we are in fact afraid to let go of all seeking and just be present here and now?

What if “this timeless moment” is the only “reality” that ever exists and there is no past and no future? How would you live then?

Inquire into this and it will astonish “you”!

  1. all we have is right now, it’s all we’ve ever had, and it’s all we will have. We can be ok/happy/perfectly us in this moment, if we are aware and allow it.

  2. And yet the amount of seeking it took to let go of the seeker is staggering. Let alone necessary. So then, wonderful.

  6. Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to
    help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get
    my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains.
    If you know of any please share. Thanks!

  9. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.|

  10. After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me from that service? Thanks!|
