The Looking

I've been doing the “Looking” for a couple of years now. At first there was a conscious effort on my part. I did the looking like you'd do a meditation practice. I set aside time to do it each day. Of course my busy life crept up and I put it aside for awhile, then I'd do it again. There was a time, for about several months that I just forgot about the looking and began to work on some other things. All the while, in the back of my mind, something would occasionally remind me to look. It seems that now the looking is happening on its own for the most part. It feels like it just sits in the background and does it thing..... kind of like the "fear of life" used to do. There are things.... in fact many many things that come into my life that make the old fear arise. This still happens at least once a week or so. What's different is that now I feel the looking going on underneath the fear and then after a minute or two the thought pops in my head, "well, this may not turn out the way you wish but no matter what happens you're not gonna die!" I am so very grateful for John's insight into all of this. As a former "Spiritual Seeking Junkie" I have always looked for the next "mountain top experience” which of course is always followed by a time in the "pit of hell." It’s really nice to be ok with the rising and falling of LIFE. As James Taylor said in the song, Secret O' Life

“The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time

Any fool can do it

There ain't nothing to it

Nobody knows how we got to

The top of the hill

But since we're on our way down

We might as well enjoy the ride

The secret of love is in opening up your heart

It's okay to feel afraid

But don't let that stand in your way

'cause anyone knows that love is the only road

And since we're only here for a while

Might as well show some style

Give us a smile

Isn't it a lovely ride

Sliding down

Gliding down

Try not to try too hard

It's just a lovely ride

Now the thing about time is that time

Isn't really real

It's just your point of view

How does it feel for you

Einstein said he could never understand it all

Planets spinning through space

The smile upon your face

Welcome to the human race

Some kind of lovely ride

I'll be sliding down

I'll be gliding down

Try not to try too hard

It's just a lovely ride

Isn't it a lovely ride

Sliding down

Gliding down

Try not to try too hard

It's just a lovely ride”
