Not an À La Carte Option

The first part of this sentence is absolute truth.

But not the second part.

You do not have hope for true, unshakeable liberation unless you can substitute the word “unless” with “especially when”. Maybe it is hard to attain this with every single situation, but the goal is to become as competent as possible in as many situations as possible.

“Moment” is just another word for “truth”. And truth is not an à la carte option. It’s either whole, or not. But you will not get there with words, even these words. The only path for the human mind, in most cases, is meditation — silent, choiceless observation of Now.
