picking the lock

Is language a beautiful cage? Knowledge is a very useful thing, but does it fall short of knowing?

If so, how does knowing come about?

The sages say there’s a time for both knowledge and knowing. Knowing comes from the deepest parts of our being and is felt by a deepening awareness.

If so, how does a deepening awareness happen?

Desiring it, then searching for it, finding a path to it, then practicing it by walking along the path. Why not give some time for the adventure of seeking out the deepest issues of life and living as a human being?

How will you experience knowing more deeply instead of experiencing the state of being full of knowledge?

When you venture into nature where you live (gardens, parks, shaded streets, a potted plant in your home, etc.) and give special attention to the life in the plants, insects, and animals, you start to notice in a different manner (having as few thoughts as possible helps), and you may begin to see and feel the connection with life by knowing (feeling) every bit of it contains DNA as you do and has evolved to its present state just as you have. Then you may begin to realize you are not separate. We already have the knowledge that all life on our planet is built from the most common elements in the universe. But how am I able to feel life?

Knowing is a feeling fed by awareness, not something recorded somewhere. I’m not an enlightened being, but I’ve searched and found a path which feels right according to my knowing. I’m still stuck in language like almost everyone, but I’m in a place where I have the tools to pick the lock if I dare to use them.

Getting out of the language cage by taking the time to experience silence without worrying about or desiring what may happen or not happen is what the sages say is the proven way to pick the lock of knowledge.

discrimination

Does life use of all of its faculties to change? Might all of this sensing be the universe perceiving itself?

Our bodies give us powerful discrimination skills. Is the ability to discriminate our greatest tool? Do we take being human for granted? What is it to be a perceiver?

Is the word discrimination being discriminated against

doing is everything #2

Try to think of something which is not part of an action or process. Even ideas which take up no space are doings.

Existing, dying, decomposing, our remains being processed and used again and again by the earth are all doings.

It’s amazing to think even a small rock appearing to be doing nothing is composed of an unspeakable number of quivering energy units. We quiver too like the rock and are not aware of it.

What would being aware of the quivering be like?

It might have a sweetness about it and might feel like being loved by sensing all the atoms of one’s own body merged with all atoms existing. If so, how could such an astounding thing happen?

Maybe by finding a way to fully discard our identity at least for a while which is an adventure into new territories say the sages from the East. 

We are energy through and through and are mobile. So what are we doing with this mobility besides not being dead?

To
become
energetic must
one be energetic? Even
doing nothing is everything?
