The Wall



We exist in a world of perceived matter, expending tremendous effort to reconcile "life" to our pattern of thought while all the time, trying so hard not to lose our sense of self ... a throughly exhausting endeavour to say the least !

We say life is one, yet we stand apart, we draw up our own right & wrong but can find no solace in our decisions, and finally, we obscure our sense of being and stand out in the cold, unsure of what happiness even is... 

We have a concept - this is how life "should be" ... but we find that it really isn't.. so we accommodate our concept to the present situation whereby we can eek out some joy ( or minimise our sorrow ) and then, having been forced to modify our concept, we are left unfulfilled .. this process, extended across our lifetime, gradually beats us down and leaves us as a hollow shell.. a sense of emptiness that absolutely nothing can fill... we simply cannot become whole - always looking for more..

Is life to be one long series of compromises? how do we break this pattern and tear down this wall that we have built up out of our own incompleteness?

we want a freedom that is infinite in its universality ... ever present in our consciousness - continuous and uninterrupted by "life" as it unfolds... a perpetual perfection is the only acceptable mode of being... anything short of this is simply not good enough.  This is the core of man's search for himself...

Once we clearly identify what we want, what we need, only then can the search begin in the right direction - whatever we have tried until now, we know, first hand, is simply not enough .. we are still stuck behind this wall that separates us from our own completeness...

what exactly are we waiting for ?  

that which separates, cannot, at the same time, unite ...... weed it out and experience what it truly means to Be.... Happiness and Bliss are natural to this state and no further effort shall be required.

Live well....
