It's Your Story
Your story identifies how far you are from now. Your story identifies how separate you are from this moment of existence, the only moment that is truly alive. So what are you doing in your life? Are you frantically spinning that story, or are you trying to unravel it? Are you creating more distance, or are you minimizing the distance?
How do you feel? Maybe you don't even know; maybe you haven’t checked lately. Maybe your life exists in your head, and you don’t get in touch with how you feel. So your life stinks, because it's been stagnating for at least ten years.
It's through this discontent with our lives that we're able to slowly realign the frame rate of our brain with the frame rate of the space around us. In doing so we begin to lose the desire for the space around us to become like the frames inside us, and the two come together and make a perfect match. When that happens, we can identify ourselves.
Identifying ourselves scares us because we’re not used to it, so we run away, and once again we can't identify ourselves because we disappear. We shift the frame rate of our brain once more, and now we can identify ourselves again because we begin to feel the tension, the stress, the pressure and the friction. So we make up new thoughts about the tension, pressure, stress, and friction—stories that tell us, okay, I have this tension and pressure and I am incredibly busy. And this gives us our new identity.
Then we feel good because we're identified. Well, actually, we feel like garbage, but we're still good because even though we feel like garbage, we're identified. We know what to do. We have challenges to meet . . . but then we're lost in duality, in twoness. We haven't even gotten to three, where the real excitement begins. . . You're just lost in two . . . and you don’t want the answer, which is right there, because that solves the quest and then you can't see yourself again.
