This is the secret to happiness.Where do I begin? So this concept of here and now. Living in here and now without thinking ahead or behind. To think behind would inevitably be to think ahead since, why else would you look back? You already know what has passed so unless you are using the past as an indicator for the future, therefore allowing yourself to try and control what is to happen, what is in the past is irrelevant to anything. This concept begins with how one sees life as a whole. The caterpillar does not think about becoming a butterfly; when it happens, it happens, and that's that. One does not choose to be born, one is just born. After birth, you quickly develop skill. You have no thoughts, other than what is happening now and you will never remember what just happened. You are a baby, and by living in the now you grow without even realizing it. Patterns begin to form; you burned yourself on the stove once, you will not touch it again, you do not touch it because you just don't. You don't form the thought “oh, I shouldn't touch this stove because it can burn me.” you just don't touch it. That's that. These instincts go hand in hand with vibrations. The same kind that you feel when someone is upset; without even giving the slightest hint that they are upset you just know. It's the same idea as the spider who can feel fear and reacts accordingly. Vibrations are true knowledge. In the sense that after truly learning something, we no longer think, we just know. This is when knowledge “sticks” and you will never forget. These bits of knowledge pile up and develop your entire way of thinking and acting: “maturing.” One does not think about how to become “mature.” It just happens. Why? Because this knowledge that becomes instinct becomes action. If you were to think of your life as a book, you will understand what I mean: While reading a novel, you move slowly and process what is happening. You begin to formulate thoughts and knowledge about the character, setting, time, etc. These thoughts build throughout the book. You are reading word by word. If you flip back a few pages, you will become bored, why do you need to read that? It already happened, it has already allowed you to understand what is presently going on. You flip forward a chapter. What the fuck is happening? You don't get it. Why? Because it's the future. It is already written and determined, why you don't get what is happening is because you are missing all of the middle stuff. The present moments that pile up and become the future, or another present moment. So why a novel? If you read a textbook, say about U.S. History, you can flip from chapter one to chapter eight to chapter three, and not be confused because they are all associated with a certain time; one that has already passed. Hey, but when you're reading a book and you flip to the future, and you don't like the way it's going, you can just re-write it. No. Because then it would change the story which is predetermined. No one would like the book. You would ruin the book. The book is written. It is published. If you re-wrote it it would be a different book. Life doesn't work like that. If you re-write it, you will only have re-written it based off of what you know has happened. The book would become very drab and boring. The same shit would keep happening and the reader will not have learned anything. Re-writing would be like stopping in the middle of the book and “imagining” what the ending is. The ending is written. Be patient, enjoy what you're reading while reading it, and the ending will get there. By re-writing the book, you're missing all of the knowledge you could gain. (I am speaking about a book you have never read, since life is something you have never done. It is new to you and you can't read it again because once it's over, it's over. Your experience reading the book for the first time will no longer be the same.) Re-writing the book is like having a child. You have read the book, you like it, but you could change a few things, you re-write it based on what you read. Your child is a re-writing of that book. You can only teach them what you have read up to this point and as they mature they begin following their own book, one that you don' t know about.
