Life Force

The life force is always present in us and is a continual source of manifestation. But we have no contact, no relation with it. In order to know it, we have to be present to our identification.⁣ ⁣⁣ We have to accept that a force in us will always be in activity, always wish to express itself, to manifest. My thought will always go on, my feeling will always go on, my body will always move. There is a hunger for activity, a kind of avidity, which will always be here. How do I participate in it? What is my relation to it? ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Here is the root of the problem— I do not see the ego behind all my manifestations, I do not know it. I do not see the impulse that provokes this avidity in myself—this thought “I,” “I,” which arises with all my emotions, all my movements...this constant thought “I.” ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ This impulse is a part of me, I cannot deny it. But I do not know my relation to it, what place it should have. I do not even know what in it is good or bad, or what attitude I should have in the face of it. There is nothing conscious. I cannot even stay in front of it to try to understand.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ In order to see my identification, I have to accept as a fact my powerlessness to remain present. I have to experience it, and seek again and again to know it. In order to know a force, I have to resist it. So I resist being identified in order to know the force with which I am identified. ⁣⁣ ⁣ Artwork by @Phazed
