Being fully aware is an irritating interruption to our daily cycle of repetitions. It is an inconvenience. We can be deeply asleep while mindlessly repeating an endless number of things during our waking life. We are programmed by our conditioning and culture, our status and gender, our ancestors and karma, to do so much on auto-pilot, and so it is convenient to simply repeat the dream of the past and project it into the dream of the future.
We seem to have many desires which get us through each day, are strictly scheduled, and many interferences and synthetic urges.
But when we are fully aware there is no arbitrary measurement of ‘time’ – a concept invented by the controlling mind to distract us from our deep doubts and fears, to always shield us from reality with our egos. There is no schedule. There are no desires. There is no mindless repetition out in the vast field of awareness. It is immediacy and directness; it is novelty at every turn accompanied by a surge of joy. It is the continual thrill of the unknown.
Allowing ourselves to be fully aware for even a split second of ‘man time’ will rivet us with the Great Truth of our existence in the visible world.
