Good Evening Group
While walking this morning our recent readings fell into place and I am very enthused. Forgive me if the below is already obvious to you, but the concise clarity is fresh for me.
Rinposhe tells us that the past is a corpse and can not support the birth of our future. The future, it seems, flows from upstream. We can position facing and receiving the ever arriving clarity of this current and enjoy the aliveness of our being.
Our historic sense of self appears prerecorded and is merely thought and memory. The aliveness of our being is not sourced by the past; does not come from the “already happened”. Our aliveness is sourced by the ever arriving future and therefore we are never born “once and for all”. Instead of thinking “no self”, we might think of “self unborn” for self and all experience are ever arriving.
The relationship between the arriving future and the self structure makes the self a tendency of time and not a thing that has already happened. This is good news for this psychologist and all of his patience :@)
