Simple and Immediate Realization

by Eric Gross

This is it!

 

This is the inconvertible, rock-solid truth of this cloud-like existence. You can now put away your books and cancel those satsang plans in Maui.

Life is spontaneous and immediate.

This is always true. Even thoughts that assert the opposite happen spontaneously. This “me and you” we have struggled with, are also spontaneous and immediate happenings.

Do we need to realize more than this?

So if you’re in the business of making plans, of committing yourself to a long and arduous meditation practice or chanting obscure sounds know that these choices also happen spontaneously, but the compelling choice to do these practices suggests a refusal to see this essential truth about every moment of life.

Why not just drop all the pretense and realize what is immediately true?
