Silly Questions Call for Silly Answers

Lately there has been some kind of urgency for the answer to many questions. Those that may be striving for the truth, or for some clarity on the importance of what something means. It always comes down to the question and answer until no question can no longer can be asked because the answer is what you see right in front of you.

Meaning or no meaning, importance of one thing or another is only a delusion of the mind. There is naturally nothing wrong in this feeling of wanting to take some importance out of something, in fact, it can be quiet fun just pondering on some fantasy importance that something may have in the turn of events. Seeing a question or a suspection that somethings importance is only solemnly based around the conditional mind, it means nothing more then what the mind gives it. most people refer to this as karma, omens, good or bad luck. Whatever word that someone may want to use for it, it is all the same, but in Reality, there is no importance really, it just rather happens, the flow of Life manifesting itself in a creative way. We could say its very beautiful, or very destructive, either way it’s the same thing, there has never been a separation, but individual subjectivity makes it so.

This is why this post is called silly questions… why bother with either one when both are silly to begin with… What is the meaning of life? Well that’s going to spurt all kinds of silly answers depending on who you talk to and where they are now isn’t it? πŸ˜‰ So try not to take too much too heart unless it follows what you feel deep down to be true.

All questions can be brought back to silence, and all answers end in you. What you are is the answer you’re looking for. So just look and see that you’re the ocean, not the wave. Of course there’s nothing wrong in enjoying a little wave action. πŸ˜‰ ❀

    I often feel there’s no point in asking. What is there to ask? And why bother asking? You may remember this post: http://www.metaphysicaljunkie.com/blog/what-question-should-i-ask/ πŸ™‚

    Although once in a while I get an answer to something that’s been really bugging me and it just clarifies things so much! Such as my discovery of this answer this morning: http://www.facimoutreach.org/qa/questions/questions135.htm#Q725

    What a fantastic find! (At least for me.)

  3. Very good find, I actually looked up the book that was referenced in those questions and answers and it got a lot of good reviews. If i wasn’t so busy with the flow that is life, i might have picked it up out of curiosity hehe! πŸ™‚

    Hi Nick,

    The question thing is a funny one being there are no answers but the ones that form the question itself. We look for reason where there is none except that we are here, being both the question and the answer itself. We look outside ourselves running in ciircles of madness chasing shadows the we ourselves cast. The puzzle grows until we go within and find that silence that you mentioned on The Voice Continues.

    All is well, All is well, and everything will all be well,

    Thanks for the post, Pete

  6. running in circles indeed… we can either just stop or i could even suggest running faster if that will exhaust us to the point of surrendering to what you’ve always been quicker!

    Thanks for posting Madstone! πŸ™‚

    Truly – there are many paths. The Kabbalists have expressed a process which sums up both the nature of “our” reality as spirit/human and our folly with the words “running and returning”. This phrase was actually incorporated into a Catholic prayer in later years.

    I’m kind of lazy, and prefer to avoid exhaustion, but also choose the fastest way I can to that which is a waste of time to devise a name for, so, of course have a certain expense to bear for this. In between – I just sit back and enjoy the scenery.

    Keep up the Great Work,

    Pete

  8. haha, thanks for the post pete.

    It definitely rings true that the path isn’t just set in stone, that it’s always in fluid motion as is life. That’s what our nature is though, and how beautiful is that, in constant motion yet, we are not really going anywhere, this paradox may not make sense to some but once you see and feel it as being true, it has a certain freedom.

    I definitely agree that the path is different for each person, some may rather become exhausted like we’re talking about but some may pick up that there is no need to run and just stop and say, “I get it!” and no longer will they have to be controlled by some illusion. The Kabbalist has a right idea in that there is no real running and returning because then one falls into this concept of a “seeker” which is nothing more then… well… a concept. Sometimes we have to be the seeker though, to progress in finding out what we truly are, sometimes it can be skipped.

    I find it comical how much people constantly are back and forth about you should or shouldn’t be this way, when all you can be is yourself, the thing you have always been and if seeking is involved in order to wake up from that dream, then it’s involved, nothing more, nothing to feel guilty about. Just Live.

    much appreciate for your comments Pete

    -Nick

    We all know the answer, we all intimately are the answer, yet get a kick denying it…
