Haha...believe it or not, on top of everything else, I DID catch a cold yesterday.
I seem to have reached a point where there is really nothing I have a burning desire for....there really is nothing that's perceived as being 'needed' or necessary for peace to prevail...... improved health included at this point......I'm seeing the perfection even in having an illness that could end things or disable.
Therefore, as far as intents go at this point, If there is any, it is simply to see clearly...to cease resisting the content of any given moment. perhaps 'intent' isn't even the best word, as it's simply more of a 'seeing' that nothing is necessary and I"m very much enjoying the perspective.
I can now clearly see that resistance is the only thing that can mar the experience....regardless of what is occurring.
When we no longer have attachment to anything in particular that is presenting or not presenting, then even something like a physical illness or even impending death can be experienced with with peace.
I get the sense this was what Jerry experienced in his last days. Let's face it, we can all talk a good talk about how all we need to do is cease the resistance to the content of the moment and all suffering will cease and we'll move into the vortex, (& manifest our hearts desire), but until we experience actual circumstances that challenge our ability to accept, we'll never really know for sure exactly what our response will be.
Jerry got to find out first hand. And as I'm seeing, when we can accept and even embrace something like the possibility of our own immediate, impending physical demise, we enter into a state where the beauty and perfection can then be seen in absolutely everything.
