      Ever pull into your driveway
      and suddenly realize that you
      have no recall of driving
      the last few miles? It is as
      though you were on automatic pilot
      and somehow safely navigated
      your way through traffic and
      made the right turns that
      brought you home, without being
      "there", consciously driving.

      Now imagine a mode of being in
      which you could actually witness
      the driving and feel as though
      you were watching yourself drive -
      while still on automatic pilot.

      The witnessing "you" would not
      be consciously driving...
      and the physical/sensual "you"
      would not be consciously driving.

      Who would be driving?

      Meditation can bring you to
      this mode of being in which
      you witness your life, your
      daily activities, and the course
      of your life going on without
      conscious control, without
      emotional or even rational
      or judgmental interference.

      And, for some, even the
      witness fades or merges
      into the automatic pilot
      mode...and life is transformed.

      This transformation is not
      into a state of stupefied beatitude,
      but rather a clear and quiet
      confident way that has
      absolute trust in "the
      automatic pilot". The
      joy of this mode of being
      is indescribable, and
      may seem paradoxical -
      in that giving up conscious
      control suddenly brings
      realization that you are in
      complete control.

      Life becomes spontaneous
      and events flow harmoniously.
      Opportunities present themselves,
      solutions present themselves,
      questions dissolve, the sky opens,
      doors open, and you go through
      the door without any of the
      "should I or shouldn't I"
      forethought.

      From this perspective, you
      realize that "you" are not
      merely the separate self,
      but are one with consciousness
      itself. This is a "stepping
      into perfection", written
      of in Christian scripture
      as available to those who
      are interested in what are
      called "advanced teachings".

      This is the truth that sets
      you free; free from fear and
      doubt, free from the social god
      of what-will-other-people-think,
      free from freaking out over virtually
      anything. It is a moving
      out of the drama of the soap
      opera life and into clarity -
      seeing, knowing and accepting
      the course of your life and
      the events of your life as
      already perfected.

      Enjoying life on automatic pilot,


      Jeff
