Being with what is

...and being what is

It is a simple yet profound instruction: just be with what is.

Before concept. Don’t label things. Don’t think, “that is a car sound.” Just be with the sound.

Just being is not grasping. Being is not trying to improve experience, it is just awareness.

Being with what is does not push away. If a thought crystalizes, be with that, not as a concept, but with whatever a thought is. Notice how the energy of awareness defrosts the crystallized thought.

Being with what is recognizes the labeling brain, prone to conceptualize. Notice how the labeling brain is silenced in the openness of just being experience.

Naturally as you open to a greater intimacy with what is, you will recognize that you are being what is. You are not with it, but identical to this boundless loving awareness.
