The Present Moment is Your Timeless Home.
Happiness is not a ‘state of mind’. It is the Allowing of all ‘states of mind’.
Those thoughts 'in your head' that seem to judge you: See that they are thoughts.
To See that a thought is a thought, and not the Truth of what You Are, is freedom.
I can ‘try to be present’. Or I can notice that I always already Am.
‘Failure’, ‘unworthy’, ‘not good enough’, or even ‘special’, ‘different’, ‘successful’.
These are words that we can innocently identify with, and depending on what we believe, we may either feel pleasure or great suffering.
But what we Are cannot fit into a word. You are so much vaster than that. You are the Vastness in which these words appear and disappear in. The Aware Presence that remains when all stories fall away.
Yes, we can identify with all sorts of labels and play many roles, and this is the beauty and creativity of Life. But ultimately You are undefinable.
