This morning the thought appeared "there is no you." Took a look and was like wow … yes there is emptiness here and was able to see something that is being pointed too. As a kid two things seemed very strange to me that everyone else agreed was absolutely real. One is "time" and the other are "words." With a child's mind everything is much more simple and the simplicity pointed to the obviousness that both "time" and "words" were man-made. From that realization it has formed to what can now be shared (seemingly) many, many years later with a more educated way of saying it (though not much more, heh).
So, what was seen is that if one said the word "car" (was in one at the time) over an over again … it begins to lose it's meaning. Without knowing it's meaning it could have meant anything … as long as someone else agreed that whatever it was named it is what it is … however … and … just because something is "named" doesn't make it what the name is (like humans). That was what was revealed about words … the seeing that they are only "real" because we agree with others that certain sounds represent what we see with our eyes.
Then there was time … this took more time (heh) to grasp. It was actually more of a wondering of "how could time be real?" This image appeared of just space (not even that really) but just this vast Emptiness and then a grid is laid upon that Emptiness and it is called "time" but there really is no "time" or another way of saying it is … it is only and forever Now.
Time (the grid) is just another man-made thing that we all have agreed upon. So "time" is the grid that is laid on Emptiness/Space ... that drove the investigation even deeper. A question arose "what is the universe laid on? ... what is behind the universe?" Well the Gift was/is received and there is no word for what was/is Revealed ... could call it … Light or Energy, Brightness, Emptiness, Space, Stillness (see picture above for vague concept the yellow is the backdrop or the screen that all appears on)...but it's not really that … what is before time and before words and before bodies and before the Universe and is right Now forever Now … it is Everything and everything is in IT … it animates everything and yet is not an IT (obsoletely indescribable).
So that created a bit of a freak out for a good 10 years … with bouts of paranoia that still arise (don't underestimate the power of beliefs). However, the Universe and Time (don't say this to a scientist that hasn't dug all the way through) do not actually exist. Which brings us back to the original thought that appeared this morning "there is no you."
Thoughts are just like the grid above and like words, they aren't actually there … go ahead and look for a thought … see if you can make one appear ... perhaps they are just echoes in "time." (Cosmic Joke.)
Most things that are written here on this site/blog you will have to investigate for yourself. All these hands can do is type and point ... but no one could have looked for me (well actually there was no one that actually looked) ... but that is a bit advanced in unlearning … until you begin to see that you have believed in something that isn't ... just like Santa Claus.
Most people would not find any of this helpful … but one will. ;o)
