Non-Volitional Living

Post by sanjay » Thu Aug 20, 2009 6:19 am

An absence of both postive and negative volition, an absence of both deliberate doing and deliberate not doing. Going through 'my' alloted span of life wanting nothing and avoiding nothing, so that this 'life' (this duration of consciousness which has come like eclipse on my original true state) will disappear in due course, leaving me in my absolute presence. What more could (the conceptual) 'one' want?
