We all would like to be better off but we lack clarity, certainty, conviction, courage, and settling for where we are seems to be as safe a bet as striking off in any direction on the hunch/hope things will be better there if we can get there. We need better information. Reliable information. Trustworthy information. And when everyone is promising to save us it makes sense to distrust everyone and set about saving ourselves as best we can. Which gets around to the importance of emptiness, stillness and silence in dousing the truth in a land of anything but. And learning to trust the drift of our own soul in knowing and doing what needs to be done, when/where/how it needs to be done. These things are not to be known by thinking. Reason, logic, intellect, analytics and calculation have no way of accessing the regions familiar to instinct, intuition, insight, realization, knowing what we know and feeling what we feel. It takes practice to find our way along a way that can be seen only in hindsight. Practicing emptying ourselves of all thoughts, memories, emotions and sending all of these things into the void the moment we become aware of them. Practicing embracing the silence in the stillness of just being here/now, watching, waiting, conscious of what arises/emerges/appears within, seeing what is called for and how we respond, all without thinking/planning/contriving, just watching/waiting to see what we do.
