The Ultimate Luxury

 

Can you touch the root of consciousness, that is, the point where thoughts end, from where thoughts originate? In fact ‘you’ can not touch that because there ‘you’ is also out.

What the mind is doing is to convert, label every fact or challenge as satisfactory or unsatisfactory before it touches the core. In the case of satisfactory, it wants repetition. In the case of unsatisfactory, it rejects or explains away or hopes for a good future.

When you are face to face with a stressful moment and you do not move psychologically, mind sees its helplessness (because the stressful moment is there before you like a solid wall); the door to the limitless opens.

When you are face to face with a pleasurable moment and you do not move psychologically, mind sees its helplessness (helplessness in retaining it, as the moment is slipping away); the door to the limitless opens.
      
      Touching the core is the end of the game.
      Touching the core is always sudden and non-volitional.
      Just go through the contents of the web site without labeling them  
      as satisfactory or unsatisfactory.

Every moment mind is trying to solve the mystery of existence through actions, thinking, experiences; ideas (may be about God or any other theory and so on).

The mystery of existence can not be solved. It has to be lived AS IT IS.
Being with the mystery is the unfolding of the mystery.

The ultimate luxury lies not in having more or less. It is revealed in the understanding of the truth. 
The point is that this luxury is not psychologically comfortable, as this is actual luxury not a conceived one, or thought operated. You can not store, hold this luxury. It is ‘live’, ‘new’ every moment. This luxury can not be fitted into the language of the present mind, as the present mind is tethered to hope. The actual (ultimate) luxury is not ‘hope’ based.

It ‘is’.
