“This is ridiculous,” the Brain said, “The spot is too sweet. Someone will be camped there. It’s stupid to go so far out of your way.”
Just then, a white pickup truck (the mysterious pickup?) appeared down the road and the Brain shouted, “Ah ha! I was right. The camp is taken! You’re a fool Wayne, you’ve always been a fool! You need to start listening to me more. When will you learn?”
As the truck pulled up, I (whatever that is) waved him down. He was about 35 and his wife(?) a little younger and I asked if there was anyone camped down there and he responded with a smile, “Nope. It’s all yours. We had thought to camp there ourselves, but…” and he trailed off. I told him that it was his then, but he shook his head and said with a smile, “It’s a beautiful camp, lots of firewood left behind too, but no, we’re not going to camp there. It’s all yours.”
It’s been two days and I haven’t seen anyone since. What are the odds I’d run into someone—a generous and friendly someone—at the exact time they were on that two-minute stretch of road… and seeing no one else in two days? (2minutes in 2days x 24hours x 60minutes = 1 chance in 1440).
What do I mean by less of you?
A big part of “you” is your identity. I don’t have an identity anymore (that’s what enlightenment is).
I’m not a man. I’m not a writer. I’m not a spiritual authority. I’m not a nomad. I’m not a guy typing this.
Those are things I do (yes, I’m doing a man LOL!).
Your identity—what you believe yourself to be—is what is blocking Her. Less identity, more Her. Less me-me-me, more Her. Less self-interest, more Her. Less self-consciousness, more Her. Less you-whatever-that-is, more Her.
But identity is by far the biggest barrier.
Make a list. Write down everything you cling to about yourself—everything that defines you (your roles, your past, your interests, …). Whatever you wrote, that isn’t you.
If you no longer identify with anything, then you are awake. Then you are free.
You’ll be less… and She’ll be more.
