A Voice From the Inside: The Question
From the blog, Living in a Pefect World
There are many questions asked by people of all walks of life. there are questions about the spirit; questions about the association of body and mind; and there are even questions about our very existence in this world of shadows and dust.
n the wake of all these questions you may find many speculations and beliefs based in the largest part on faith but there have truly been no concrete answers as of yet. I do not believe that our spiritual search is hopeless. I just believe we are asking the wrong questions.
Who or what is God? Is there a God– and if so, what does he look like? My stand-point on that subject is “does it really matter?”. What could we do with that information that we can’t do right now?
To me questions of this nature are standing in our way. They are questions that are rooted in the fundamentally flawed psychological framework of our poisoned minds. In attempting to definie what God is, we also define what God is not. We seem to be pulling out all the stops when it comes to rationaliziing what is beyond all boundaries of concept contained within human intellect.
When I look closely I can put aside all questions except one. The question I speak of is a quewstion that I fear can only be asked and answered out of context. It can be asked in absence of words because this question stretches back to a place and time before language was established. Honestly, I think the question should never be asked by anyone who is not ready because they may not like what the answer is.
The one question that would bring us all to a place of total enlightenment — should it be answered– is “who am I?”. Through all of my investigation concerning this question, I hvae come to a very shocking realization. That realization is that “I” am not, “I” never have been and “I” never will be . The basis for who I am is a merre imputation. “I” is simply a lable for the association between body and mind. As deeply as I seaerched to find a center from which all thought has its’ origins, I still lacked a solid point I could call “me”.
the world we know is one of thought. It is a world constructed of language based on discriminations. The sky is such because it was born in the mind. It’s basis exists in a conventional sense but it is always changing and because of that non-permanent state, it is not truly an existant.
In the same way we see ourselves as truly existing and as such permanent entities. This is the reason we hvae created what we call a soul. The soul was created for the purpose of our limited view of self living on for an eternity. I do not believe that when “i” die, I will move on. yes, I do believe that there is energy that moves on– an essence if you will, but I don’t see it as a soul. The self was created from a conscious faculty of mind that is governed by language. When this body dies, I believe this self will die as well. In my next life, I will be someone or something totally different. The person that I call Jeheshua is only a samll piece of the entire conscious entity inhabiting this body. you would know that entity as God, but only becasue your concept of the ultimate is as such.
Some of you may see this as insane; others will see it as blasphemy– but only because your hearts and minds are closed. Why am I wrong? What makes your view correct? Why does the difference in our beliefs anger you so much? Truly ask yourselves these questions. Open your hearts and minds to the possibility that you are not who you think you are. Truly ask yourself the question, “who am I?”
