I was called to help assemble a bathroom sink by a friend of mine. In the house, a construction site, there was another worker present. We began to assemble the object. It was really quite simple, one remained calm and checked oneself as one went along following the assembly instructions.
What happened is that the two men became one long song of complaint about how complicated and ridiculous the object needing to be assembled was. I didn’t say anything. I just kept going until the object was assembled.
This makes me think of learning to play an instrument. It really is the same thing, one “assembles” self with the instrument-so to speak. The moment one begins to complain or blame, or react, connection with the activity as interacting stops and the focus is then on the separation as complaint, as emotion and feeling and belief. It does not matter what it is that is stopping the movement of self within the moment as what one is doing, even if it is the self as frustration because what is the actual being of the person determines what is actually happening in the moment.
Here were two people complaining about the assemblage of an object, and yet they were not even trying to do it! They immediately decided it was too difficult, because they had heard that such things made no sense.
When something is not working technically as I play, I have to find where the resistance is, I have to find where I am not following the structure of the instrument and my physical body as capable of flexing and bending in such a way to “fit” with the instrument. Any thought or emotion as theory will not allow this in and as itself, no desire for immediacy will, in and as itself, allow this, anything I am confused about in my life that is not resolved and that keeps “popping up” in my mind will deter me from this because it will take the focus away from my self accepting the instrument for what it is, and the ability of my physical body to “mold” itself with the structure of the instrument. This requires no judgement, it is a process, no more no less.
Assembling an object is a process, no more, no less. It is the behavior, the bes and the haves of the desired outcomes, or unresolved emotions of the human that interrupt the focus. This is why emotion and feelings and thoughts separate, they are ideas and opinions and beliefs of how something should be, or the resonance of how something is that take over and stop the focus of self and the acceptance of what is actually physically present in the moment.
In this, all emotion and thoughts, beaded as belief and opinion and idea, are superstitions projected onto our reality, our physical reality. This is ignoring what is actually here, this is being ignorant and allowing ego ( energy go as mind, as emotions and thought, as belief, opinion and idea) to contract the being of self as life away from HERE.
IN many ways, emotions and thoughts, the indicators of our desires , want and needs, our opinions and beliefs and theories are per-versions thrown onto objects, thrown onto this physical world.
Just try and convince that “per-version” that it is “out of sinc” with HERE, that it is just a smoke screen, that in the nature of its projection, covers what is actually real, here.
It is almost like we must “breath in our own created smoke” and clean it up, to enable us to actually see this physical world! All this smoke is a per-version of the mind, and must be reclaimed and corrected and directed back to the present moment, to here, one and equal, without judgement, simply being at ease with what is here, expressing self with the structure of this physical world.
This “smoke” is to forgive as the separation of self from this physical world, so that self can assemble one and equal with and as the physical world, here, with ease as breath.
