Me, myself and I
At the root of suffering is a misguided sense of self.
The understanding is immediate, the lasting change occurs in time, without waiting.
Relaxing without being lazy.
Making sense is valuable, but also part of the suffering.
The sense of "me" as a personal-doer can be examined in a practical way.
Merely thinking and talking about it misses the mark.
What do I really want?
Love, beauty, understanding is reality manifesting as this world.
Words are concessions to untangle the mess we created, to outgrow the cocoon of "me" as a separate-self.
Peace, right here and now.
Thinking softens from a sense of lack to being the open space for love, beauty and understanding to shape this world of names and forms.
Suffering can be understood and dropped as the misunderstanding it is.
A misunderstanding cannot be practiced away, but bravely examined.
Right here and now; reality, peace... simple, natural, beyond words.
"The only truth in the manifestation
is the impersonal sense I am;
is the impersonal sense I am;
the rest are concepts."
Some simple concepts can be very helpful;
not to blindly believe but as guide for our own unique exploration.
We have this amazing opportunity to discover our faulty assumptions;
believes and hopes that once served us a little child, but are now obviously a hindrance as spiritual adult.
Suffering is attitudinal and can completely drop away.
Pleasure and pain are circumstantial (not in our control).
Our happiness is not to be found in pleasure but in peace of mind.
Peace of mind is available here and now, independent of circumstances.
“Come now, let us reason together”
Thinking allowed, thinking aloud
Welcome to this free and private website.
Welcome to this playful, but sincere invitation to explore a core issue we are all entangled in – the root of man's quiet desperation, exploitation and inhumanity.
With deep gratitude to Magdi Badawy, Roger Castillo, Rupert Spira, Mooji, Eckhart Tolle, Jiddu Krishnamurti, Joel Goldsmith and many other beings who help me to investigate my own humanity; without any claim to fame, but encouraging you to prove me wrong: a win-win while our bodies are still warm.
After 50+ years of "me" I could call myself an expert in suffering; materially having much more than probably most people on this planet, yet, until recently, lost in faulty thinking and unaware of the mechanism of my own identity and consequential suffering.
Isn't it amazing how thinking can be our seemingly greatest enemy or our most powerful ally.
Why do I want what I want?
What do I really, really want?
Truth is an activity in our own consciousness. We are the operant power.
Can we embrace the gift of being alive, of being aware?
As an invitation into the unknown; not as new belief or hope, but as pointer to our own unique living discovery, here and now; walking the talk.
And how humiliating – in a healthy sense – when we see that this peace and clarity was and is always available.
