When sitting somewhere, slightly distracted, or waiting for something, defocus your vision. Try to encompass the entire scene, but with no particular focus. See what happens. You’ll start ‘feeling’ a part of the total, the Tao. You may start ‘hereing’ the Guan Yin, the ‘thing’ that keeps you alive some have called ‘the Silver Thread.’ Note, it isn’t Tinnitus.
Practice this! Your life will start changing for the better.
Ego pursuits in life, they are the way of trouble, unhappiness, suffering, and inglorious death!
Read what Samuel Clements (Mark Twain) and Kurt Vonnegut say about life, two famous American writers. At the end they realized that ‘It’s a crock of shit!’ Now, why would they say this, they had fame, glory and all that brings (money, for one). Why would they say that ‘Life is a crock of shit!’? Because if you pursuit only what the ego (‘I’) wants you’ll be ultimately unhappy! Yes, you will ‘jerk yourself off’ into believing you are happy, but underneath, a ‘cesspool’ of doubt. And this leads to binge drinking, drugs, and depression. Look at ‘Hollywood’ celebrities, story after story of violence, drug addiction, angst, alcoholism and more of the same until in a hospital, jail or coffin. Need I quote the names of people, going back to Marilyn Monroe afflicted with the ‘I!’ — and before, Judy Garland. And way before, Mark Twain for one! Today, Charlie Sheen, et. al., and ad infinitum!
Stop living for yourself only, and start living for others! ‘Step on,’ (Note the depiction of Shiva and Shakti in sexual embrace. Shiva’s feet are stepping on ‘Nature’s Joke,’ overcoming mundane and pedestrian sexual desire!. This, on the way to loving unconditionally (the union of compassion and wisdom)!
‘Kill’ the ego, or at least severely ‘wound’ it! This, the Way (Tantric Taoism) to a state of supreme bliss, beyond all feeling ‘won’ in the same!
