“The mind creates the abyss, the heart crosses it.”
― Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
This week, I've written a lot — more than usual — about true self.
You might think I'm promoting something.
I'm not. It's how I'm expressed: to express myself.
If I'm honest, I've no idea why I'm enthralled with writing, recording a monologue and the occasional video.
One day...well, I might not feel inclined.
What I'm pointing to comes from a non-dual perspective, and it's always offered for your consideration. Some people will be drawn to it. Others not. And either way is fine.
I do know, from my own inner journey, that what I'm pointing to is very hard to grasp, but that's only because to the logical, thinking 'self' there is no-thing to grasp. If that sounds too ethereal think about it like this.
It's all impermanent.
And that means it's impossible to describe the formless, particularly when the label doesn't ever describe the feeling, emotion or (apparent) physical thing. That's abstract I know but if you were looking at a cloud and saw a shape — i.e. a person's face — in the moment that you recognised it, it would be moving onto something else. I appreciate that elsewhere things move more slowly but they're still a formless, energetic expression; and words don't do it/them justice. They can't because they're trying to describe something that's indescribable.( Collapse )
