SURRENDER IS 'ALWAYS' - NOW

JOHN MCINTOSH


NOW is all there is … IT ‘is’ the ONE SELF.


The illusion of time is all pervasive and very persuasive – yet still NOT real. To manifest the illusion of the universe, time and space need to ‘seem’ to exist … a ‘from here to there phenomena’ results, which allows the delusion of separation to ‘seem’ real. However when one ‘surrenders – says ‘YES’ to WHAT IS, [which allows the flow of Life to occur unimpeded by the desire for this or that] … that ‘surrender’ [if genuine and total without exclusions], is ‘always’ in the moment – NOW. When NOW is experienced, whether for a fleeting moment or permanently, ‘emptiness’ [the absence of thought] occurs. This is a moment where Awareness of the Real YOU simply IS.


Surrender ‘frees’ one from conditioning [attachments, expectations and identifications] ‘in the moment’ – NOW. This eliminates suffering [but not pain – a huge difference]. This can be called Peace within the storm of the Grand Dream. The fact that circumstances arise again and again that were associated with the surrender, does not mean this surrender was a so-called failure [a mind oriented concept] … each NOW moment ‘is’ Complete/Whole.


Conditioning [call it karma if you prefer but many connotations of this term can confuse] causes these experiences, however persisting with surrender returns one to this state of Peace again and again and in that ‘focused attention’ EXPANDS the Awareness of the ONE SELF YOU Really Are until there is ‘only’ IT.
