The wish and the work to be present -- to live in the Presence moment -- is the upper path. The “steps” alternate between complementary discoveries: first seeing within ourselves where and how we fall spiritually asleep... A discovery that, in turn, becomes both impetus and the power we need to wake up and to walk out of the world of dreams.
Our present level of consciousness is so fragmented, so impermanent, that while this same consciousness can catch the occasional glimpse of its own present limitation, it can’t remember it long enough to effect any meaningful, permanent change within itself.
