I Feel Good – Or It Feels Right
On completion of re-plumbing a toilet, do I feel good, or does it feel right?
Being in a beautiful cathedral/temple*, do I feel good, or does it feel right?
When meditating, do I feel good, or does it feel right?
When pruning a tree, do I feel good, or does it feel right?
It doesn’t matter where we are or what we are doing, we can always feel good, or right.
It’s not about my understanding; it is about understanding.
If we have to be in a certain place to feel good, we are dependent.
Wherever we are mindful, it feels right, and there is no dependence.
When life is all about me and my understanding, this always reveals limitations.
Pure consciousness is understanding: it feels right, and has no limitations.
The ‘I’ is always defensive.
Pure consciousness needs no defence.
.*Religious places are simply a space outside the regular turmoil. Designating places ‘holy’ breeds illusion. Adepts leave all elaborations, and go to live in an ordinary cave to practice; when the adepts leaves the cave, the cave is then designated ‘holy’ 🙂 Seen that, been there, done that, didn’t feel any different! 😀
