Hi there—Kenton here.
I just love this video. It epitomizes the backwards approach of the Living Method, and while the pointers are sharp as razors, there’s also a palpable quality of softness that comes through the Fred appearance. Let this softness hit you and really sink in—there is actually great power in it.
When the truth recognizes itself and rests in itself, what often arises is both laughter and a deep softness—laughter because everything works 180° from what the mind thinks, and softness because of the radical absence of a problem. This ineffable knowingness is utterly itself, utterly complete. It’s actually beyond complete. How could one adequately convey or quantify just how much this This-ness of present experiencing is exactly as it is? The mind reels and gives up, and what arises is an “understanding” that is prior to the mind.
When the body laughs, heaves a sigh of relief, cracks Buddha’s signature half smile, or even shakes in terror—these are a few of the familiar signs that Awakeness is recognizing what is already, always here: itself.
I dare you to fully enjoy this video, or anything else for that matter. If you do, you might realize that “you” are not there. 😉
