Taking a moment
To Rest in Presence, "Letting
Whatever Is Be."
Take a moment to
Rest in Awareness and "Let
Life Flow As It Is."
Take a moment to
Rest in Peace as the Presence
Of This Awareness.
[Rich Note: Unexpectedly ran into a great book entitled, "Doorway to Total Liberation: Conversations with What Is," by Scott Kiloby; which, not surprisingly -- given the inter-connectedness of all things -- starts with an Adyashanti reference; an "utterly simple, yet absolutely profound" book that "completes the 'Let It Be As It Is' circle" by offering a "Let It Be" practice applicable to daily living.
The relatively simple practice (with astounding potential) Scott offers goes something as follows:
(When a personal issue, problem or dilemma arises, ask yourself)
"What do I want?"
(Suppose it's: "I want people to agree with me!")
"What happens when I don't get what I want?"
(When people disagree with me then "I suffer.")
(Then, in seeing that, simply...)
"Take a moment of resting in presence and let it be as it is."
To paraphrase Scott, the operating principle underlying this simple practice can be summed up metaphorically as: "Not knowing why we suffer is like continuing to stumble around in the dark, tripping over the same thing, over and over; while "seeing why we suffer" is very much like turning on the lights and seeing exactly what keeps tripping us up and how to avoid it."]
