SEEKING MEANING




HERE ARE THE WORDS

This contemplation, is about answering questions.

We often feel frustrated or suffer painful experiences.

And when this happens, we struggle to find a way through.

We attempt to work things out.

But no matter how much we think or believe we have discovered answers, more questions always come.

At some point, we attempt to seek deeper meaning.

We look to all kinds of sources, trying to satisfy our desire for understanding.

This seemingly never ending search comes about because the mind cannot reach into the hidden causes of all that happens.

To find lasting ease, we must explore deeper.

This can only be done through quiet contemplation.

At some point, we come to the realisation that there is no way the mind could ever have known the answers.

This can lead to feeling lost.

Unsure what meaning there is ...depression can even grip us.

But this is just a phase.

Before too long, a further realisation occurs.

We get in touch with a sense of 'being' within us.

With practise, it becomes possible to rest in this place and observe life.

We gradually find we are disengaging from the express train of the mind.

We gain distance from the turmoil of emotion.

When this state becomes more stable,

we increasingly see everything in fuller perspective.

...in time, questions like...

Why did such and such happen?

What's life all about?

What's my purpose?

All lose importance, and gradually drop away altogether.

Why does this happen?

Because we've come to know that its all...

beyond our understanding...

...and all that really matters is to reside in the 'beingness' within us...

and everything will reveal itself in its rightful time.

When we surrender to what is...there is no fear of falling.


If you found this interesting, might like to ask some questions.

I'll answer any that you'd like to put to me.

And if you enjoyed this, of course, feel free to share it.
