A Modest Goal

Our goals in the practice of non-attainment may be quite modest – to be present in each moment’s sensation, perception, feeling, thought. We stop looking for some other moment.
It is wonderful to explore and continue turning the question of “who am I?” or “what is this life?” so that we are simply open to what it means to be alive – to be in a body.
And if we really don’t know, which we don’t, then the searching, the wandering, the questioning, the never-arriving, is a wonderfully liberating way to live.
