Beyond the thinking Mind

The Truth is far more all-encompassing than the mind could ever comprehend. No thought can encapsulate the Truth. At best, it can point to it. For example, it can say: “All things are intrinsically one.”  That is a pointer, not explanation. Understanding these words means feeling deep within you the truth to which they point.

Become at ease with the state of “not knowing”. This takes you beyond mind because the mind is always trying to conclude and interpret. It is afraid of not knowing. So, when you can be at ease with not knowing, you have already gone beyond the mind. A deeper knowing that is non-conceptual then arises out of that state.

Dogmas – religious, political, scientific – arise out of the erroneous belief that the thought can encapsulate reality or the truth. Dogmas are collective conceptual prisons. And the strange thing is that people love their prison cells because it give them a sense of security and a false sense of “I Know”.

Nothing has inflicted more suffering on humanity than its dogmas. It is true that every dogma crumbles sooner or later, because reality will eventually disclose its falseness; however, unless the basic delusion of it is seen for what it is, it will be replaced by others.

Spiritual awakening is awakening from the dream of thought. Wisdom is not a product if thought, nor does knowledge bring wisdom. All knowledge is transitory and therefore when one becomes at ease with “not knowing”, the doors to wisdom are opened up.
