A translucent whole

If you are having any difficulty right now - any difficulty at all - this will help. It really will:

Sometimes say softly to yourself: "Now...now. What is happening to me now? This is now. What is coming into me now? This moment?"

Then suddenly you begin to see the world as you had not seen it before, to hear people's voices and not only what they are saying but what they are trying to say and you sense the whole truth about them. And you sense existence, not piecemeal - not this object and that - but as a translucent whole.
