"Meditation is like riding up in an elevator and as the doors open at each floor you see interesting activity taking place. Those who choose to stay and get involved in the activities of each floor, will never get to the top"

yes Sun......the more we appreciate the here and now.....the more we spontaneously pick up the ''singing of the birds'' etc.....Life NOW is basically all there is. What we may regard as a hasstle (something popping up from the past that leaves abad taste in our mouth ) is dealt with ease if we feel consciousness is boyant in the NOW.......a test if you like.... of the strength of our Now........om

"When you learn about yourself, watch yourself, watch the way you walk, how you eat, what you say, the gossip, the hate, the jealousy - if you are aware of all that in yourself, without any choice, that is part of meditation. So meditation can take place when you are sitting in a bus or walking in the woods full of light and shadows, or listening to the singing of birds or looking at the face of your wife or child."......Jiddu Krishnamurti

Great comment Om.   and brought this to mind...

"Spirituality is a particular term, which actually means our dealing with intuition. In the theistic tradition there's a notion of clinging into a word. A certain act is regarded as displeasing to divine principals and a certain act is regarded as pleasing for the divine ... whatever.
"In the tradition of non-theism however, it is very direct that the case history are not particularly important. What is actually important is here and now. Now is definitely now. We try to experience what is available there, on the spot. There's no point in thinking that the past that exists that we could have now. This is now. This very moment. Nothing mystical, just now, very simple straightforward, and from that nowness however, arises a sense of intelligence, always, that you are constantly interacting with the reality, one by one, spot by spot, constantly. We actually experience fantastic precision, always. But we are threatened by the now so we jump to the past or the future.
"Paying attention to the materials that exist in our life; such a rich life that we lead. All these choices take place all the time, but none of them are regarded as bad or good per se. Everything we experience are unconditional experience. They don't come along with a label by saying this is regarded as bad, this is good. We experience them but we don't actually pay heed to them properly. We don't actually regard that as we're going somewhere. We regard them as a hassle, waiting to be dead.
"That's the problem. And that is not trusting the nowness, probably, but is actually experienced, now possesses a lot of powerful things. It is so powerful that we can't face it, therefore we have to borrow from the past to invite the future, all the time. Maybe that's why we seek religion. Maybe that's why we march in the street. Maybe that's why we complain to society. Maybe that's why we vote for the presidents. It's quite ironical and very funny indeed."
Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

interesting quote by Edgar Cayce Sun............................Before transcending thought and sensations there are many levels....worlds....realms we can get caught up in.... some very pleasant some ordinary and some unpleasant but after experiencing transcendance...... all attachments or aversions to any state or vibration slowly evaporate as one experiences and appreciates the natural state of Isness in the Here and Now.......OM
