Sometimes we can believe ourselves to be â€˜feelingâ€™ something when in fact weâ€™re thinking about it, coming up with theories and ideas, concepts and beliefs about it.
All of these, no matter how noble they may seem, serve to separate us from the direct experience of right now, and it is direct experience â€“ of ourselves, of life, of everything all around â€“ which is the essence of this time.
The more we can be truly and fully present – conscious in each and every moment of the very breath which leaves and returns to our body, of the air on our skin, the thoughts passing through our minds, the emotions arising and passing away – the more deeply we can come to know the truth, the deepest truth, of this powerful time.

Deep Abiding Truth: Everything I Call “Mine” is Fleeting
