Comfort Zones

Post by toombaru » Tue Jan 01, 2008 5:23 pm

The conceptual mind is hard wired to seek its own comfort....both biological and psychological comfort.

When its thought is turned inward and can find nothing of substance the result is discomfort.

To relieve the psychological discomfort it will fall into a consensus speculation concerning it own origins..

The Senoi people believe that they were created by a giant frog.

Another tribe believe that God vomited them up from deep inside.

Almost any belief will do to pacify the nagging question:

"Who in the hell am I....and where did I come from?"

The answer to the question can never be found by the one supposedly asking the question.....for one very good reason.

"It" never existed.

And any solution that it comes up with only adds to the delusional dream.


Ain't that a kick in the imaginary ass?

So.... the apparent organism turns inwards....

And finds that 'it' doesn't exist...

I'm presuming that you mean the separate self can't be found....

Of course.... apparent objects are still arising...

But the seat of this subjectING can't be found....

How amazing.... Buddhists call it 'No self'...

Turn that negative description into a positive...

And it might be called... THIS or just IS.....

No solution... no delusion....

Just THIS....

Empty and marvellous....

But then again..
is there some one to give up?

Could 'Now' realy be 'before' or 'after'?

Perhaps Now include
the illusion of linear profression of
‘before’ and ‘after’,
Both
Happening
Simultaneously…

Yesterday was snowing,
Today it still snowing,
Perhaps tomorrow will snow too…

Just THIS... snow,

Now……
