You know what’s difficult for all of us, whether we lean or stand to the right or the left, is being willing to allow our beliefs to be challenged. Most of us are unconsciously focused on defending our beliefs. The idea that we don’t have a concrete thought of what we think we are is THOUGHT of as being weak. That idea is in us. It’s part of our making. We are broken and in a thought we want to cover that broken or fix the broken with a thought. We tend to immortalize thoughts by calling them beliefs as though the thought now is not some aberration of mind but instead it’s REAL. It’s who I am. “I” all of a sudden becomes omnipotent because the thought is now a belief and the bedrock that was once my “broken” is now fixed by a Belief.
As “I” holds onto that bedrock belief it no longer sees itself as broken. Instead it looks at The Belief as proof of who it is.
So now the foundation of our brokenness is replaced by our mind. Our mind is never complacent. It constantly needs to think itself, as it thinks it is. And if it thinks it is, then not to think is the death of itself. The mind doesn’t want to die. The mind needs to keep thinking in order to survive and it does that by controlling us. So as we continue to think who we are, we add to that first thought we put over our broken. That first thought is smothered and combined with a life time of thoughts, the mind, continues to think in order to survive.
The mind lives in fear of losing control and dying and it does we live our life with a false foundation. The initial fear of who we think we are is covered with countless band aides of thought. We defend those band aides as who we are and it’s our fear of not allowing ourselves to be challenged in what we think that separates us from the broken. The broken is the connection of us to our true self and as we cover the broken with our beliefs/thoughts, that give us a false security based in fear. That is how we separate our self from the God of our making to the thought of a God we think is but it isn’t. We just think it is.
So the idea that the truth will set us free isn’t the belief or a thought of knowing God. It’s the willingness to embrace our fear of thinking God and in that Letting Go a awareness that supercedes anything we can know will Be.
Those dominos of thought that separate us from the unbridled intelligence of God can begin to fall and we either can spend a life letting them fall one by one and setting us free on a step by step basis or they can all fall at once and as they all fall at once that is a vision of eternity, the alpha and the omega, the beginning that never ends. The moment that isn’t trapped in time by a thought that thinks it.
It is because it is, not because some pretense of ego or “I” thinks it is.
“Little drops of rain whisper of the pain, tears of loves lost in the days gone by.
My love is strong, with you there is no wrong,
together we shall go until we die. My, my, my.
An inspiration is what you are to me, inspiration, look… see. And so today, my world it smiles, your hand in mine, we walk the miles,
Thanks to you it will be done, for you to me are the only one.
Happiness, no more be sad, happiness….I’m glad.
If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me” Zeppelin
