We, like those before us, become an expression of our accumulation – until we break free.
We grow up learning from family, friends, teachers, etc. about what they think ‘matters’ and what they think ‘works’ – based on their experiences of life.
We innocently take on board their ideas (accepting, rejecting or modifying them in whichever ways we do) as they morph into our reality – the way we too come to see life.
Their ‘truth’ becomes our ‘truth’.
Stored in our mind, our accumulation of beliefs, opinions, judgements and knowledge becomes both the prism – and the prison – through which we see and experience our life.
Their ‘truth’ becomes our ‘truth’ of how life is. We, like those before us, become an expression of our accumulation.
Even more, in our combined ignorance and innocence, we often become the misguided ‘world improvers’ proclaiming how life should be for others. If only ‘they’ knew what we know – shared the beliefs we share.
We are the blinded, self-righteous holders of ‘the truth’ about how life is and how it should be.
That state of mind – comprising our assemblage of beliefs, opinions, judgments and knowledge – remains in place (with ongoing additions, polishing, refinement and occasional rejection) over our lifetime.
Yes, our process of gathering what becomes our ‘truth’ continues ad nauseam until we either die or ‘wake up’.
SEEING INTO THE REALM OF POSSIBILITY SETS US FREE. FREE OF BELIEF – ANY BELIEF – FREE OF WHAT IS SAID HERE.
We typically remain asleep at the wheel of life unless we peek into the Realm of Possibility.
It’s then we see how we create our reality in each moment – either drawing in vain on the past, or being awake to each original moment of renewal.
It’s at those points of insight that we come to see our accumulation for the illusion it is, the ball and chain we drag around, and how it prevents us from seeing what is.
Our accumulation – when we take it as ‘gospel’, as we usually do – is our realm of impossibility.
In our flashes of insight – those precious moments of our awakening – we see into the Realm of Possibility. It is in these redefining moments that we recognise how we have been creating a life around what we believe ‘works’ and what we judge ‘matters’.
In those twinklings of realisation, we see that those long-cherished views haven’t really ‘worked’ or really ‘mattered’ as we’d hoped they would.
The results of what we thought ‘worked’ and ‘mattered’ have, from our new found perspective, been feeble at best, if not a total failure.
And that doesn’t matter one jot. We have found what we have been looking for. We have got a fresh start. The past is irrelevant.
We experience, in those transformative moments of Possibility, a sense of unconditional love, profound understanding, elevated wisdom and newly discovered common sense.
We recognise that what we believed ‘worked’ and what we thought ‘mattered’ didn’t ‘work’ or ‘matter’. We see that our stale, conditioned state of mind had been forever compromising our endeavours and their outcomes.
WHAT DO WE SEE?
In these moments, the fossils we carry – our beliefs, opinions, judgements and knowledge – are seen in stark relief.
We see our mind relaxing its grip. The dead past gradually laying itself to rest. Painful memories dim and finally abandon us.
Memories useful remain strong – like remembering our name. Two and two still make four. Memory becomes our servant. No longer our master.
In experiencing Possibility, we soften in heart, broaden in perspective and expand in our capacity to understand ourselves, and therefore others.
We see more deeply into what ‘works’ and ‘matters’, as well as what is preventing a new, enlightened future from emerging.
Our state of mind has been reborn, our consciousness raised. The cleansing power of original Thought – The Realm of Possibility – our centre of unconditional love, understanding, wisdom and common sense has triumphed.
Warmly … John
