There’s only now
And even this now is impermanent
Why cling onto what the mind thinks (in now) it experienced in the past (remembrance of the past that doesn’t exist in now)
Missing the pleasant experiences and the contact with desirable objects of names and forms
Craving for the pleasant experiences and the contact with desirable objects of names and forms
Be disturbed and influenced by the past unpleasant experiences and the contact with undesirable objects of names and forms
Be disturbed and determined by wild imagination, anticipation, projection, speculation and expectation towards the future (doesn’t exist in now)
Be disturbed and determined by what the mind perceives/experiences in now that is also impermanent
It’s everyone’s freedom whether they want to cling onto the past experiences, the present experiences and the future anticipations, or be free
Not clinging/attaching onto the mind perception of all pleasant/unpleasant experiences or the contact with the objects of names and forms that are impermanent
There’s no clinging, craving or aversion towards the past, the present and the future
There’s no dissatisfaction, disappointment, hurt, regret, guilt, depression, meaninglessness, loneliness, anger, hatred, animosity, anxiety, fear and worry
There’s no egoistic identification and desires – I am this and I am not that / I want this and I don’t want that
One makes use of the present condition and ability of the existence and function of the body and mind and the opportunity that is available now to be doing something for oneself and others, but there’s no attachment or identification towards all actions and the fruit of actions
If something needs to be done in now, do it
If something cannot be done in now, let it be and let it go
*This freedom has nothing to do with whether the body can perform some yoga poses or is performing some yoga poses, or not. Or, whether the mind knows this or doesn’t know that. Or, whether the mind knows and performs some rituals of spiritual or religious or cultural practices, or not. Or, whether one believes or disbelieves in ‘God’. Or, whether ‘God’ exists, or not.
This freedom is available to all, if the mind is free from ignorance and egoism, it doesn’t matter whether people believe or disbelieve in ‘God’, whether ‘God’ exists or doesn’t exist. If the mind is under the influence of ignorance and egoism, one is not free, it doesn’t matter whether one believes or disbelieves in ‘God’, whether ‘God’ exists or doesn’t exists.
This freedom is the realization of impermanence and selflessness of life existence.
If people don’t like or disagree with or don’t want this freedom, if people prefer to be passionate towards the worldly life of all the past and present experiences and future expectation, and attach onto their actions and the fruit of actions, to gratify all the passionate desires and enjoy all the emotional ups and downs, full of self-justification and hypocrisy in mingling and social interactions, while blaming and criticizing everyone and everything (including oneself for being not good enough) that they think is bad and wrong for their mind reactions of dissatisfaction, disappointment, hurt, anger, unhappiness, fear and worry towards all their unpleasant/undesirable experiences, that’s their freedom.
