Why ‘Shit Happens’…

I'm glad the damned horse fell on me. It made me lie still in one place... - Andre Dubus

shit happens

When shit happens, it's Life offering us a gift. It's our opportunity to become still and know what's true. To know what the gift is and what we might do with it. It's an invitation to come back Home.

How To Process Fear…

The only way to get rid of my fears is to make films about them. - Alfred Hitchcock

afraid

Whether we admit it or not we're afraid. We're afraid of many things including death, or extinguishment. Alfred Hitchcock was indeed a master, he knew how to process his fears. And thus he points to how we can do the same. We must face our fears, we must allow them to come up and allow them to take us over. We just let it happen without resistance. When we do that we realize that all fear is really a damp squib, it's non-existent. And unless we face our fears they'll always lie waiting to pounce, attack us again and again...

What’s The Present Moment?

There are no present moment thoughts. All thoughts are about the past and future, even ones about now. - Sandy Newbigging

isn't

The present moment is. But it isn't to us when we're thinking, any thoughts. It's not thoughts about what's going on. It's just what's going on. To enjoy it, actually to be it, we must just be, and be as though we're not.
