THE EXPLOSIVE NATURE OF TRUTH
Truth is nuclear! In the middle of our ordinary daily living, truth may profoundly present itself subtly and powerfully. Potently and compellingly. It’s disguised often as an idea or ideal; but that which “rings true” is not discovered in personal thoughts or feelings. Most often it’s a simple and silent seeing that brings us to an “Aha!” perhaps accompanied by tears. Tears of gratitude and love that have their own way of washing away our resistance to what is.
Truth merely conceived and understood is limiting; truth really perceived and known introduces us to the limitless.
The truth tears may reveal when we really slow down and listen is life-giving, transcendent. The steady drip, drip, drip of it may, in a flash or gradually, introduce us to the beauty of our being, a natural well-being that’s at once profoundly known and unknown.
Here’s a collection of words that have dropped like a depth charge, into this being. If you have some of these you’d like to share, please send them to me at email@example.com
“The fact that you are sincere means that you have already searched in many directions. The longing to search for life
in many directions, to discover your true being, comes from an inner urge to find the truth, the inner urge to discover yourself. If you really seriously search in all directions you become exhausted and speaking psychologically, bankrupt. You feel completely helpless: you are in despair; you no longer know where to turn; all streets are dead ends; your thinking can no longer help. This crisis is the most important moment in your life. You come into a state of complete not-knowing.
You have no hope or expectations anymore. It is a rare occasion in which the thinking is confronted with its limitations, and because it is useless as such, the thinking gives up, then you are open, open for nothing, only open for openness. This openness is the threshold of your true nature. Remain there in not knowing and you will see what happens.”
~ Jean Klein
Be Content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you.
When we simply move out of our own way, spirit, reality, moves in.
Truth is always simple and obvious.
A tree will fall the way it leans
If it’s truth you’re after,
lean into it!
