Departure storyville - mysticism


One of the most awkward barriers to overcome on the path to spiritual advance is extracting by hand from the inflexible grip of the Ego Story. Unsuspectingly, many citizens are awestruck and possessed by this mental illusion. Possessed like some demon possesses a poor, miserable soul. They are ignorant of their ignorance. They do not achieve they are separate. They deem that they are the Story.

The robin, on an early bounce morning, spies a worm burrowing into the soil. Two creatures - the bird and the worm. One sees the other. Two. One as the Other.

Finish this sentence: "I am a . . . "

Looking by means of the robin's eyes - we see the worm. We see our beak, we feel the lust for a touch to eat, the amiability of the break of day sun on our feathers. We come into contact with all that the robin experiences. There are Two. We which see, and the robin's experiences. Two. That which sees and That which is seen.

Did you bring to a close the sentence? "I am a. . . " If you answered anything, then you too are possessed. You too are under the dark affect of the Story. You too are identifying with what you come across in its place of that which is experiencing.

You are not a man or woman. You are what is experiencing the man or woman's life. You are not a worker. You are experiencing the life of a worker. You are not the robin, but that which is experiencing the life of a robin. Two things. The Experiencer and that which is experienced. Two things, that which sees and that which is seen.

The mind often confuses the feelings with the Self. Concepts develop into the Identity. I am a man, a writer, a photographer. I am sad and alone. I am contented and happy with a full stomach. My mind is not to be trusted me. My ego is possessing me. Since I can see these things, then I must be that which is doing the seeing.

Look! Look at these words. See the ink on the paper? What is experiencing the seeing? Not your eyes - they are the tools to seeing. Not your mind - it is the tool to interpreting. What is "hearing" the interpretation? What is experiencing this moment? What are you?

When you start to see the Story as a touch break away from yourself, a cool thing happens - you stop compelling life so personally, so seriously. That dent didn't crop up to your car, it just happened. All those plans for the weekend didn't get ruined, they were just belief in your head. That guy didn't just insult you, he insulted what he thinks is you.

What is at the back noise? Can you hear silence? What is at the back thoughts? Can you come into contact with nothingness? It can't be seen, yet it is everywhere. It can't be experienced, and yet, it CAN be sensed. From this Emptiness, the whole thing arises. From the Stillness, every jiffy is born. From the Nothingness, all Life.

As you coldness physically from your Story, you see just how frail that Story is. It exists only out of memories. It is, in fact, no more real that the story of the Great White Whale in Moby Dick. You can't touch it, you can't see it, and, when your brain goes to sleep, it ceases to exist. It austerely isn't any more real than a distressing and persistent thought.

With the lot that is seen, there are Two - You and what is seen. With the lot that is experienced, there are Two - You and the experience. If You can see it, it can't be You. If You can be subjected to it, it can't be You.

On the path of the Spirit, the out of you travel, the less there is of you. You befall less important, less the core of things, less. . . solid. You start to fade, shrink, melt. And, with persistence, one day you may from tip to toe cease to exist for a moment and paradoxically, when that instant happens, you all of a sudden leap from this tiny, diminutive speck of a self, to the One and Great Complete Self.

What lies after your eyes? Where do your belief come from? What is affection the tension in your body? What are you?

Does one apple equal one orange? No, of avenue not. Does one apple equal one apple? No, there are two another apples. Does zero apples equal zero oranges? Yes, zero apples does equal zero oranges. Zero continually equals zero, and zero of you is equal to a zero amount of Universes.

Emptiness here is the same as Barrenness over there. Naught connecting the atoms of your barely handle is the same as the Naught connecting the atoms of a star in a detached galaxy. That which sees out my eyes, is the same as That which sees out yours. Zero = Zero = Everything.

There is nonentity to take seriously. Nonentity to take personally. Nobody that needs doing. Wake up and enjoy the experience. Wake up and enjoy your Self.
