Contemplations

I am in need of nothing!

What seems to be missing in this moment? 
What am I needing?
….. something seems lacking.
What is it outside of myself that can satisfy this discomfort?……..
Then the realization comes…. Nothing!
I am in need of nothing!

 

Background…………..

 

Any time…. any day…… a sense of discomfort can arise. (suffering, dukkha)

The mind kicks in…. it asks…

Why am I feeling this discomfort? What is the problem?

Then the mental sorting process begins…..

is it due to this? is it due to that?  …no, it doesn’t seem to be this…. it might be that…. but no… that’s not it either… blah blah blah….

At some point, the mind is successful in placing the “blame” on some event…. some person……. some culprit….

 

STOP………….

 

I have learned to put an “alert” on this process… it alerts me to this nefarious, and almost subconscious routine of the mind……

  • I bring myself back to my breath…. back to the THIS MOMENT
  • I bring the process to the forefront of my mind… and observe it..

Let the mind release the “culprit” of this discomfort……

Realize that the discomfort is simply some body function….

Recognize that “It won’t last long… just let it pass”

….. “oh…. its nothing”…..

 

(What, you can’t let it go??!)

 

What seems to be missing in this moment?  What am I needing?
….. something is lacking.
What is it outside of myself that can satisfy this discomfort?……..
Then the realization comes…. I am in need of nothing!!
