From Friday to Monday I was in a terrible state of mind. Engaged in self-inquiry and all of that. 

 

Then, today, I'm sitting in the bus and think, "I am", while looking at the bus and the people in it. That's when the strange intuitive knowledge that "I am"... and always have been and always will be comes, and this picture show isn't real. That's a relief. Haha. 

 

There's a big difference between that "strange intuitive knowledge" and just thinking it. That is, that I'm not to be found here or that this place isn't real. The relief isn't there if it's just thought. But, that other way is so nice. It's to be untethered from mind. Without any infinite sights, one seems to grasp the infinite. 

 

Hard to explain. I suppose it's like this. Trash the story of me. Then, whatever is essentially here must be the same as the truly existent. And the truly existent is precisely that which we seek. The same thing that rests blissfully and eternally is here.

 

But, I really mean trash the story of me. Forget it, it's bullshit.

Heh. No point reasoning with this stuff. 

 

The only way I've seen it was by abandoning my reasons.

And that relief is kinda unexplainable too, isn’t it? It’s like you don’t realize how much you hold onto things (ideas) until you finally let go somehow and feel the ease of what is.

The ideas are the whole of the mess!

 

Supposing that there is something truly worthwhile, what's the difference between this awareness and the one that finds it?

 

What's common between my life and that one? They both don't stick around. Only the awareness does. Only the source of existence remains. If not, I'd be fucked. But with open eyes, I know that I am. 

 

Where does awareness take place? It's so intimate a place that I'd be crazy not to call it myself. 

 

But, it's like another level deeper than awareness. It seems to go unnoticed. Awareness as a concept is hijacked by a thought, "Awareness is possessed by me." When that thought doesn't arise, then there's the recognition of awareness wherein the body, mind, and world are. Deeper than that is the "place" where even that awareness is. 

 

It's foundationlessness and foundation. It's inconceivable. Saying that it ceases, the trouble arises that what says it owes its life to it, its words, its thoughts, its logic and reasoning. There is no way to reason about it. And speaking of it... referring to it, it's lost. Immediately, something else takes its place.

Nothing else, taking no place. 

 

Nothing is working out for me...
