The reason that humanity seems to suffer is because it believes it is human. It believes it is separate. And when you believe you’re separate, you begin to believe somebody is trying to do something to you. You have to compete with life or with other people. So you’re trying to do strange things to others, to be above them, to outwit them.
But I say to you, you do not have to do any of these things. You simply have to recognize the truth about yourself and you will be free. You simply have to accept that you are absolute intelligence, absolute awareness. That’s you. The past no longer exists for you. It never was. It’s a dream. The past can no longer hurt you. The future does not exist. Only now exists.
Now exists as consciousness, as absolute reality, and as consciousness, self-contained. There is nothing else…
