If we are starting from/in mind, we have already gone astray


Are You your mind (and its lifetime of conditioned beliefs and seeking for happiness in a future
experience) or THAT which is AWARE of the mind (and its lifetime of conditioned beliefs and
seeking for happiness in a future experience)?

The difference between believing you are the mind versus seeing/being AWARE of the mind and
its incessant seeking is everything.

Peace/Happiness (despite the mind's claims/protests/stories is here/now (where else?) as


everything (the totality of whatever IS) and not in some specific imagined future experience.

Thus, if we are starting from/in mind, we have already gone astray because we have left the only
"thing" that ever truly IS.

Everything IS Now, Now IS Everything


Every sound is IT.

Every sensation is IT.

Every shape/color is IT.

Every movement is IT.

There is only IT.

And IT is Everything.

What can be separate from Everything??

NOTICE: No word, thought, feeling, sensation, experience can describe/capture IT, because they
too are Everything appearing as a word, thought, feeling, sensation, experience.

Everything IS Now, Now IS Everything.

Nothing to hold onto, because theres no one actually here/now to hold onto anything.

Theres just whats happening.

The "I DID THAT!" exercise

You simply say (think/claim internally), after every single action that you can perceive,
with as much sincerity as you can mustard, "I did that!"
So, if you move your finger 1 inch, you say, "I did that!" If you look at something, you say,
"I did that!" As soon as the next thought shows up, you say, I did that! As soon as the
next feeling shows up, you say, I did that! As soon as the next sensation shows up, you
say, I did that! As soon as you feel the body move in any way, in any direction,
immediately say, I did that! As soon as you feel/become aware of any action, say, I did
that.

Note that it doesn't matter where you are or what you are doing, your only response is: "I
did that!" If you actually take the time to try out this exercise/experiment, you may start to
NOTICE that you are currently taking credit for bringing about that which you actually
had nothing what-so-ever to do with.

The NOTICING of ever-present unattached Awareness Exercise

NOTICE: that Awareness is unattached (Or as Mooji says, unmodified) by the present
patterning of Awareness. Now here's the point: Since you are here now in/as THIS
moment, it proves that you did not require the last moment for your existence!!! (For if
you did, then you would not exist right now since the prior moment is no longer present!!
**take a moment to really let this sink in**).

THE REALIZATION: You know that you didn't need the particular
pattering/configuration of the last/previous/past moment to exist, therefore however
THIS moment shows up is perfectly fine since You require nothing from it to exist.

NOW is simultaneously ever-present AND ever-changing
