When I only identify with the small self, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. There is an infinite richness of phenomena out there – in the universe, as part of this Earth, and in human culture, society and knowledge – and I am just one small object in a infinite sea of riches. No wonder I feel overwhelmed, and sometimes exhausted. It is difficult to keep up with it all.
When I come to my fuller holarchy of being – as space & awareness and any phenomena arising in the present – it is different. Now, I am this space in which it all unfolds. There is no effort in this, no need to resist anything. As space & awareness, I can allow this infinite richness to arise within me, I become what arises in the present, and there is no trace. I find myself as infinite capacity for the world, and this also helps this small self in ordinary life activities such as learning information and skills.
