Categorizing Each Moment

For every person who exist at this time, each moment of life simply occurs because you are alive. As a matter of fact it would occur even if you weren’t alive, you just wouldn’t be aware of it…

Because of the way one is conditioned, each moment of life is mostly put into a category of like or dislike, although there are times it seems the moment is neither. The only reason anyone has an issue with life is because it’s desirable to have each moment the way that it’s wanted, but this is impossible because life isn’t designed this way. Not that life does anything to anyone, but things do happen that aren’t liked. Any situation can be attached to and put in the dislike category, but it wouldn’t change what’s happening. It would only change the degree of suffering; the suffering would be a direct result of attaching to wanting the moment different. This doesn’t mean what may be happening has to be liked, but you can be in the surface state of dislike and not attach to it.

Life is a happening it stops for nothing, each moment is one continuous motion. It may seem like individual happenings, but that’s only because of the way we have been conditioned to use time and break life up into segments. What’s disliked is constantly pushed away to try and make room for the liked as if when one decides what’s liked it makes life perfect. For there not to be suffering, life has to be accepted as perfect with what’s happening right now, only because that’s what’s there. The Conditioned Mind wants what’s liked all the time and until you can be with the disliked the same as liked, there will be self created suffering. This is because you will be always trying to arrange each moment the way you think it should be (liked) and not be with it as it is…
