WTF// I want you to imagine that the Source is like the depth of an ocean – a field of unmanifest potential – out of that source arises all these different shapes of waves, like us, like trees, like nature, everything in manifest existence, all arising from the same source. And we – little us – are a little wave on that ocean, we’re a little unique piece of that big ocean of Source.
So here’s the thing and I want you to listen up, because this is really important. It’s actually about our whole life. It’s not just about a talk. It’s about the reason why we were actually put on this planet. And I want you to consider that most of us spend our lives waiting for the day that our lives will actually begin and we’re usually waiting for the time when things are perfect. And we have this little internal to-do list that when this list gets done, then my life will start. And we tell ourselves, “Yeah, when THAT’s done…” but guess what?
That list spontaneously re-populates, doesn’t it? And when we get it done there’s more stuff to do. And it’s almost as if we’re living as if: this isn’t our real life. This is our pretend life and when all that stuff is done, well, then my real life will begin. And we wait, and we fix, and we wait, and we fix and maybe around middle age, we kinda figure out: “Oh wait to minute – this is my real life”. And that’s when we started going, “Oh maybe I should buy the Porsche” because guess what? This is it. Right?
So, here’s the thing: it’s almost as if we spend our whole lives fixing, and waiting, and perfecting, but never asking ourselves, “What am I fixing for? What am I perfecting for? What am I dressing up this body for?” It’s kind of like having a car, going to it everyday and shining it up, you know, waxing it and fixing up all the things and never ever asking yourself: “What is this car for actually?” So, that we have actually never ever drive it.
Well, I suggest that this may be what we’re doing with us; that maybe in a certain land we’re waiting and we’re fixing and perfecting . but maybe we have never actually asked ourselves the question: “So, what am I actually here for?” And that questions means our life. Kamini Desai
