I read things about shadow work and self-improvement a lot and am always intrigued by them since they begin and end with the basic assumption that there is a person that is existing singularly and independently in time and in time he will be able to make himself a more wholesome person. But the basic fact is that perception is already whole right now. Right now I am already all the healed and unhealed persons. Both concepts of healed and unhealed exist equally in me right now. Right now as I look around I only ever see everything. Not just the person. Thinking can keep bringing me back to the body image what I call the person etc and the moment thinking does that it taps into all ancient so called history of all persons, and I am capable of being all of them depending on the random occurrence of hormones and circumstances. All of this is based on the stress or tension of knowing I am a person and I need to improve over time. As most of us have investigated this person and it’s story and emotions etc we find first and foremost that there is no real time. And within the story realm of a me which is a relative realm, there is infinite potential for the person to perceive lack and future hope of salvation. Yet the energy that creates time will never want to end. How long will the healed person go? Finally it’s story must take him into the hands of death. Buried in the ground. The only place where all is already well is right here right now. And right now there is simply whatever happens by itself and yet all of it is miraculously disappearing before we can register it too much. There is just life. Eternal happening life. It is One. Universal. Unknowable. Freedom is only already right now. And as a person it cannot be known at all. Simply because the person is a fictitious character existing in thought only. Right now as I look around and see and even perceive the vastness, where is the person? Non-existent.
