Everytime I just about make it to the present moment, my mind wanders off into thoughts of the past rembering that I'm supposed to be in the present moment.
So then I projected a thought that one day in the future I will be in the present moment but when I think about it, its already in the past. Hhhmmmmmm...This stuff is so hard, I think I'll just sit here in silence and listen real hard to see if I can hear what the present moment sounds like without any thoughts about it.
Hummm...this is so nice and peaceful, I don't hear or see any thoughts at all. Boy do I hope that one day when I find the present moment that it will be as peaceful as this!
Here it is again in a different way:
In a cinema hall, you look at the screen, you never look at the back - the projector is at the back. The film is not there really on the screen; it is just a projection of shadow and light. The film exists just at the back, but you never look at that. And the projector is there. Your mind is at the back of the whole thing, and the mind is the projector. But you always look at the other, because the other is the screen. When you are in love the person seems beautiful, no comparison. When you hate, the same person seems the ugliest, and you never become aware of how the same person can be the ugliest and the same person can be the most beautiful.... So the only way to reach to truth is to learn how to be immediate in your vision, how to drop the help of the mind. This agency of the mind is the problem, because mind can create only dreams.... Through your excitement the dream starts looking like reality. If you are too excited then you are intoxicated, then you are not in your senses. Then whatsoever you see is just your projection. And there are as many worlds as there are minds, because every mind lives in his own world.
