Moment of Contact 

The moment of contact with life simply occurs because one is alive. As a matter of fact, it even occurs when one isn’t alive, there just isn’t awareness the moment of contact is happening.

Because of the way one is conditioned, each moment of contact with life is put into a category of pleasant and unpleasant, there are also times it seems the moment of contact is neither. The only reason anyone has an issue with life is because it’s desirable to have each moment of contact pleasant, but this is impossible because life isn’t designed in this way. Not that life does anything to anyone, but things do happen that can be considered downright nasty. Case in point, the on going recent events with my mouth, I can attach that the process going on as unpleasant, but it wouldn’t change what’s happening, it would only change the degree of suffering; the suffering would be a direct result of attaching to wanting it different. This doesn’t mean I like what’s happening, but I can be in a state of it being unpleasant and not attach the label to it.

Life just rolls along, it stops for nothing. The moment of contact is one continuous motion. It may seem like individual happenings, but that’s only because of the way we have been conditioned to use time and break life up into segments. The unpleasant is constantly pushed away to try and make room for the pleasant as if when one decides it’s pleasant, it makes life perfect. But for there not to be suffering, life has to be deemed as perfect with what’s happening right now, only because that’s what’s there. The Conditioned Mind wants life pleasant all the time and until one can be with the unpleasant the same as the pleasant, there will be self created suffering. This is because one will be always trying to arrange the moment of contact the way they think it should be (pleasant) and not be with what’s actually happening.
