When there is subtle feeling that things are not well an effort is still needed to reach the acceptance of things as they are.
Sounds perfect and natural to me. The more that happens the clearer it becomes that it is a spontaneous event. The effort happens. And Consciousness remains untouched and unchanged.
Is this ever going to become effortless?
Where do you think that concern comes from? Will it change anything if I say yes or no or maybe?
The Hindu scriptures have a name for the Natural State with effort and a name for it without effort. Big deal. Who cares?
It does not matter. It matters only for the ego and scholars.
If the acceptance is Total then there is no concern. And if it is not total then there is homework to do. Either way things are as they are and Consciousness remains untouched and unchanged.
What makes the aceptance not total?
The sense of separation. The thought, feeling and sensation that we are an entity subject to the vicissitudes of time.
