The Natural State
A spontaneous Satsang recorded in Portugal
The potential of being human is to discover that state within oneself which is beyond effort, which cannot be maintained or sustained. No effort is required for being. Once that realization has occurred, one sees that oneself is not the moving part, not emotion, not time, not space, not body, not relationship, not contact, not separation, not mind, not senses, not anything that belongs to the interrelated play of opposites. Knowing I am not that, leaving all that to dance; not striving to control what is by nature restless and moving, but realizing oneself as that unmoving being, then one is free. That alone is freedom. Freedom beyond the concept of freedom. Not someone being free; free of somebody-ness.
