Some people search their whole lives, or at least the greater part of their lives, to find the reality, the truth behind creation.
Usually, at least in my case, I was given a warning: YOUR LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME ONCE YOU KNOW.
It was suggested, strongly, often, that I stop looking.
But I said, “Whatever the consequences for KNOWING, I will accept. I WANT TO KNOW.”
And so it is today I share it, as I see it, as I have traveled the universe to find it, and sure enough, they were right. My life has not been the same, BUT....I wouldn’t, even if I could, go back to not knowing. Anyway, it isn’t so bad. Actually, it’s kind a funny watching people now. A lot funnier than it used to be.
THE GREATEST SECRET:
THERE IS NO VALUE IN AND OF ITSELF IN LIVING.
THERE IS NO ULTIMATE GOAL.
THERE IS NO ULTIMATE REALITY.
THERE IS JUST YOU THINKING THERE IS, which THINKING makes it so, and once you STOP THINKING SO (because you know it is not so) you are left with the TRUTH:
You leave the known and enter the unknown to escape knowing.
You leave the whole to become a part, to stop experiencing the whole.
AND HERE’S THE JOKE while alive on earth:
As a part (a human) you are motivated to seek the whole (who doesn’t want to know where we came from, why we are here and where we are going). As one who does not know, you seek to know, but you left the known to escape the known to be a part, and once you again know you are the whole and know the whole but are yet a part, you have discovered what you are, which is the whole, and NOW knowing you know the whole, but yet have years to live, your life is not the same because everything is a joke, a purposeless construct within itself creating purpose that you might want to live, but you knowing this, makes everything that happens funny, irrelevant, to you, but you watch other people who think everything is important, so you laugh, and you laugh because you know nothing is important and they think everything is important because they do not know.
Now....how do you get out of this cycle of knowing while yet living? You don’t. YOU KNOW. So what’s left to do while yet living a human life? EVERYTHING, but without fear or angst or stress or pain or suffering. REMEMBER, all you know is that There is no value in and of itself in living; there is no ultimate goal, there is no ultimate reality. There’s still plenty to do while alive. All that’s been removed from your motivation is “THAT’S IMPORTANT!” Now....nothing is important. Everything just is. And so you take up knitting. nem.
