A conversation with a friend inspired this article. So here is an apparent “neon flashing message/sign post/ direct pointing ” that may be of interest to help de-mystify and deconstruct what we think we know….
When one is seeking for the truth it is extremely difficult to unwrap the mind out of illusion.
Largely because there is still this thought-pattern of “a destination we must get too”. There is still the concept of “emotional baggage we need to rid ourselves of first”. “Once I clear out all the negativity from my thoughts and old reactions and patterns, THEN I can get there, I will have arrived!”
All this IS the illusion. This is the mind/thoughts/beliefs/ego, that perpetuates the story of a separate identity! This is exactly what Jesus, Buddha, Ramana Marharshi, Osho, Mooji, Ganga-ji, Eckhart Tolle, Tony Parsons, Lisa Cairns (and many more) are attempting (apparently) to describe!!!
ONE CAN’T GET THERE BECAUSE ALL ARE ALL READY THERE!!! ALL IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, THE GATELESS GATE, THE COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS, IS-NESS, AM-NESS, NO-THING, ALL-ONE, TRUTH, HAPPINESS!!!!
But…. the Seeker/Sufferer (fictitious mind made self) continues to dance in “thoughts”, “fears”, “beliefs”, “should’s”, “could’s”, “would’s”, “ought’s”, “what if’s”. The madness of the mind is the human drama, the human condition of seeker/sufferer. It is all artificially manufactured in the mind and is the mental noise that prevents us from realizing, understanding, surrendering and accepting the I AM! So the Being Formerly Known as Kate (apparently) hopes you stub a toe hard enough (yes it can be painful) in the Dance of the Seeker/Sufferer and finally surrender to letting go of everything you thought was true, TRUTH & HAPPINESS Just IS !!! ITS FREE! NO BOOKS, NO METHODS CAN TAKE YOU THERE! Cause you are all ready there!!!
Disclaimer: this doesnt mean you have to stop your practice of meditation or methodology, it is just important to realize, understand and accept that there is no destination, YOU ARE THERE !
