Stories

There is no story about who I Am.
Stories are never in the present, and there is no Presence in stories.

Like insects in amber, stories bind us in time. How shall we fly? We are only alive and only have wings for Now.
Certainly we have sacred memories, but we can honor them without turning them into stories. 
Some counselors tell us to "invent a new story." But if we are truly alive and truly present, why do we need any story at all?
No one has ever been liberated by a story.
Freedom is waking up from the mind-told tale. No story, only silence, expresses this awakening.

The religions of the world are all stories, full of angels and demons, beggars and kings, saviors and victims of sacrifice.

But spirituality has no story. Spirituality is ceaseless awakening into Presence.
