Certainly time to relax

You know for sure the sun will rise sometime after it sets.

If this did not happen nothing would matter anyway so you accept this so solidly that you never question it.

You know for sure that it will rain in the future. You are so certain that your shoe will fit that you thrust it on your foot and go about your day without measuring it first.

I will tell you for sure also that good will come. Can you accept that in the same way?

Accept with no concern that life will work out, dedicate your thoughts only to inner peace now.

The ONLY thing we know for sure is that nothing is for sure. ;)

Accepting life as it is makes it much easier, and simpler, to live.

Do not bother good or bad, they only exist in the mind. All is just is.

Does 'Tao' make mistakes? Ha, ha, what 'is' is exactly as it is meant to be . . . otherwise it would be different ;-)

Rizal Affif said...

@ Doug: Is there a "mistake"?

Doug '1Yogi2Many' McMillan said...

Hi Rizal, my comment was clear, yes? There are NO mistakes, Tao/Being knows exactly what it is doing, YES?

There is No mistake :-)

For it to 'know what it was doing' it would need to be an it, have something to know and be able to do.

Of course, the "Doing right and nothing wrong, knowing exactly what it is doing" is a figure of speech in our limited language, one not suited for non-duality. It can do no wrong as it can do not right as it can not do at all. But we get the point when we say it can not make mistakes.

Not arguing, just spouting here.. ;-)

The true self can not know itself, or do. Except through the complex creation of a being, with a mind, can the illusions of knowing and doing exist.

Where an ant is not an ant but the action of the universe, a human is also the action of the universe and comes, does stuff, and buggers off. But what the human also does is catch this unfortunate disease where it feels there is: 'the action of the universe', and there is: 'Dave', 'Margret' or whoever who is separate.

In that form, I separate, it will kill to prove it is right.

Which is funny.

This disease is the root of the issue. And we all know that as we all blog about it. We blog to prove there is no one who could blog.


The funniest thing is when a group of concepts, abstractions of this One, that we call Shinzen, Rizzal, RT, surjit, and Doug, and well, me too, and the 10th man and Dave, and Margret, start talking about this, although we all know full well the ultimate message, we can still swirl up a storm like a librarian who knows it is best to be quiet but tripped on a bit of carpet, released an unexpected fart and said 'bollocks' slightly less loudly than the noise of a jet engine at take off.

Not sure what that means, but it was an interesting flow of consciousness.
