This sort of goes along with one of my previous posts, Maya : Your World is Illusion about what really is the problem/solution at hand.
What brought about this thought is that i was having short conversation with a friend about personal preference and the dawn of this thought that all seeing is subjective.. it is only relative truth. This is easily seen all you have to do is see what conditioned views you have as opposed to someone elses conditioned views to know that neither one of them is actually real. They seem real to you because they are “your” views, and you believe that “you” are having them but that’s not the case. They are all subjective, not only yours but everyone elses. So then you have to see that none of that rubbish is real then, you are not seeing Reality but only a dream like reality, one in which you’ve created. It doesn’t matter how real you’ve made it for yourself, that’s the nature of an illusion, “The appearance of being real.”
Because of this, the by product then is that the conditioning is going to have a very mechanical outcome. Let me give you a quote to help out..
Gauntam Buddha used to say to his disciples,”To be angry is so stupid that it is inconceivable that intelligent human beings go on doing it. Somebody else is doing something and you are getting angry? He may be doing something wrong, he may be saying something wrong, he may be making some effort to humiliate you, to insult you-but that is his freedom. If you react, you are a slave. If you say to the person, ‘It is your joy to insult me, it is my joy not to be angry,’ you are behaving like a master.”
Absolutely fiction, is where everything is outside of what you actually are. I’m not referring to the thing that thinks, “I am this, or I am that.” What you are is free from identity, you do not identify with what you are. A tree does not go about its day and say, “I’m a tree, I’m a tree, I’m a tree. Hey guys just wanted to let you know that I’m a tree, just making sure you knew that.” So what is it that we are trying to accomplish by stating what we think we are or trying to be something that we are not.
The Truth is, is that You are the Truth, there is no path, no becoming something, no being in any state except for you being who you have always been. You are the Emptiness, it is empty of a Self, a No-self and even that word is a fiction, but it is a pointer. It points you to who you are, it is only responsible to look at it and see for yourself. Do not take my word for it but look for yourself, at all the conditions you seem to have, those are assertions of your separation with who you actually are. This is not true either, you are not separate from anything. There is only One and will always be one, despite all the fictions that you have been conditioned in and have put in place through believing in the thought of something.
So just Be, that is all that has to be done, there is nothing that you can do to close that gap between you and what you are but to just see that all other views, concepts, ideas, blah blah blah are only fictions, they are not who you perceive yourself to be. I will finish off with one last quote from Adyashanti
There is no such thing as a path to the truth, it’s already here. Where are you going? -Adyashanti
