Let us suppose there was no next. No next thought, moment, idea, feeling. Nothing to anticipate. Whatever is in the past is gone. Who are you in this instant of recognition? Are you anxious? Tense? Tired? How are you if there was not another moment to stretch towards? Just simply "this". What is your state? Are you bored? Do not think. Look within yourself, examine, and see. Now, I know what you're thinking "But this is not true. It's a nice, novel idea, but of course there's a next." Ask yourself who says that. What is this next that we reach towards?The next thought is only as strong as the attention you give it. It's only as significant as it appears to you. It derives it's power from your interest, and your attention. In fact, innumerable sensations and thoughts are constantly coming as visitors, and passing through your seeing every moment of every second. Yet much of them you simply fail to notice because you have no interest in them. What you have no interest in is not registered within your psyche or memory.So, if it doesn't get registered, effectively it hasn't happened. It doesn't exist. Unless the mind says something exists, nothing exists. Of course, even if the thought comes and passes through your scope of perception it's not enough to truly come into existence. Unless the thought comes and you feed it with the energy of belief in it existing then it still does not exist. Nothing happened.What's happening right now? Whatever is happening is whatever you're interested in. If you have no interest in absolutely anything then nothing is happening.Try to think of something that does not at all exist. What do you come up with? Nothing. The very thought of something brings it into your plane of existence, even if it is merely in the form of thought.Who are you? You're the awareness within in which these thoughts come from. Your very essence of being. This "I am". You are stillness; you are nothing. Everything is a blank canvas upon which we then label with our thoughts, inherently turning it into whatever energy we fed it. There is no good or bad. Before we paint things with our thoughts, everything is nothing, including us. No one truly relates to you and your true being, not even yourself. Everyone simply relates to the thoughts that they have about you.The thought you have about who you are gets pulled about by other thoughts it thinks to be important. Making us falsely believe that we are our experiences. The idea we have of who we are is not what we are, but it is how you will experience your being. You are perceiving whatever you choose to conceive. It's that simple.So what is the relevance of all this? It is to show you that events are a selection. Everything is optional, its not a compulsion. Pain is necessary, suffering is optional. Which is exactly why you need to be aware of this. You're not some victim in a horror show. Most people tell themselves they are, and so that's what they become, and in doing so it allows them to justify their laziness in not taking responsibility for themselves and the situations they find themselves in.
You're probably still wondering what the point of all this is. Well, mostly we are troubled by the events we project, what you think about these events, and our judgments which determine the way in which we experience them. You're not an effect of life, you 're the cause of life. You don't have life, you are life. The vast nothingness that the entire plane of existence is comprised of. The world we go forth upon is nothing but a larger scale representation of what's already happening deep within ourselves. If you want to change your world, you must first change how you choose to perceive it.
