What's the difference?

Seeker wonders what's the difference between the kid and himself. The kid asks to "play just one game"; one game becomes two games; two games become four and so on... it never ends... "the last game" never comes... the kid never seems to be satisfied. He always seems to want to play more...

Seeker's mind also works the same way. Just that the games and toys it wants to play are bigger... The lust for the bigger games and toys never ends... the last one never comes... it never seems to be satisfied, no matter how big the toys and games become... it always seems to want more...

So, other than the physical age difference and the bigger wants, what's the difference between the kid and the seeker? The seeker still remains a kid from inside his mind... when will he finally mature?

Whenever God wills him to. Whenever He reveals Himself to him.

Sometimes you must stop seeking, and just believe that the Hidden is really there - and that He will one day reveal Himself.

"The kid asks to "play just one game"; one game becomes two games; two games become four and so on... "

Even now, when my son is ten years old, we still act out this same passion play.

And I have come to see rather sadly that I do not have the stamina, or sometimes, it is the fact that I have an agenda.

A place I feel I must go. And my son sees through this, and wants to continue. He wants to put more energy into the only dance that really counts.

Into the being, into the movement of what it means to be a father, and a son.

When I am really conscious, it is I that want to continue. Want to keep it going, until he is the one who calls it quits.

Yes, true, Teraroop... when it His will... just that sometimes the yearning is so strong that...

About "believing", pls see the earlier post about my not using this word... He's with all of us all the time... just need to open our eyes to feel His presence...

G, for the seeker, since teens, it's been difficult to do many tasks as it's clear that most of them are eventually futile... have been doing similar tasks for more lifetimes than the kid can count... seeker yearns for doing truthfully the only task or "job" that really matters...
