Excerpt About Positions
Living Without Taking a Position About ExperienceIt is possible to experience reality without taking a position about it, to be completely open about experience whether you are enjoying it or disliking it. If you look at yourself at this moment, objectively, you will see that you're taking a certain position within yourself about what I'm saying and what you are experiencing. You are judging: preferring or rejecting. It is possible to live without taking a position about your experience, without having continual commentaries on your experience. It is possible to perceive and experience without reaction, without the mind or self responding. But this can only happen through understanding what you do, understanding how you are constantly taking positions with respect to your experience.
