Teachings

I am the unending unfolding of not knowing.

What I am is not known, and I am progressing, moment by moment, towards the realization of what I am.

As I allow Love, the Infinite Ocean of Love, the all-inclusive and expansive cosmic wave of Love consciousness, to be in the foreground of my lived experience, of my being in the world, then I will be more of what I am, as opposed to what I think that I am.

I am ever moving towards that which I do not know, but am.

You think, feel, dream, act, speak,

It does seem that way, doesn’t it?

Check again.

Who thinks, feels, dreams, acts, speaks?

That will be your most important discovery.

The mind records all our deeds and fears.

Then later, amplifies and replays them at will, repeatedly.

This mind game disturbs and distracts us.

Best we act without attachment, and overcome our fears.

That way the mind won’t torment us as much.

Some people are going around ‘needing’ to do things that they could simply choose to do.

The difference?

The first is like trying to carry a hippopotamus on your shoulders,

While the second is like riding a bicycle downhill.

Have you heard the expression, “That’s a solid thought.”

Well, solid thoughts are nothing more than a joke and a good example of an oxymoron. You try to ‘hold onto’ them, and they are not there. We simply grasp at the memory of them, and sometimes our ideas about them. Thoughts about thoughts, and ideas about thoughts. It is like attempting to freeze smoke. We do not actually freeze smoke, only the particles it is made of. We do not hold onto thoughts, only their impressions and the ideas they generate.  Do not hold onto these. They will only create attachments and bondage.

Watch thoughts come and go like smoke.

Life is interpreted and experienced in relation to our realization of Truth.

So, as Truth is illuminated:

Life happens to us, in spite of us, through us, and then ultimately as us.

Realizing Truth, then, is the goal.
