Friends, We are back to “BEING AWARE”
Book Club is on *Friday, January 22nd 8pm Paris time.
There is no agenda, no teachers, no students, but we do have quotes from Rupert’s books to talk around. … Page 69 and 70 … Chapter 5
“In time it will become clear that we cannot make an effort to be or know our self - we can only make an effort to be or know something apparently other than our self - and at that point our effort will come spontaneously to an end.”
“However once our true nature of pure awareness has become apparent we realize that no effort is required either to return to it or to remain there. In fact we become sensitive to the subtle effort that the mind almost continuously makes in order to maintain the illusion of a separate and independently existing self.
As an inevitable corollary to this understanding, to remain knowingly the presence of awareness becomes increasingly our natural condition, until there is no longer a distinction between meditation and life.
Effortless being is our natural state.”
