After Thought #57


The unknown is not unavailable.  The unknown is unnoticed, and in going unnoticed, it only appears to be unavailable. 

If [we] took the time to notice the unnoticed, we would be quite surprised; we would in fact be shocked. 

We might realize what appeared to be unavailable was always, already, available, just outside the periphery of [our] [own] attention.

It seems ironic that we spend so much of our time searching and seeking for wholeness, when in fact, and all along, it was right there.

[You] and it are one; wholeness, expressing itself as everything-ness.

In our distraction, in the delusion of apparent conditioning, we imagine we have to go somewhere or do something in order to find what we assumed was unavailable.

And yet, all along, [it] was right there, unconditionally; immediately available, always accessible, open and empty, quiet and still.

Once noticed, it can be seen that there is no place where you can go that [It] is not always available, regardless of what you may think or feel, understand or believe. 

It’s not here or there – it’s everywhere.

It is.

Intoxicated by ideas of this and that, and the seduction and story of becoming, the seeker loses herself in mudra, mantra, yantra and tantra.

Look and see for [yourself]; look directly into [your] [own] experience.

Look innocently into the face of [your] [own] Being.

Outside the nonsense and outrageous ideas of becoming; in what could be or not be, whether awake or sleep.

What can be seen is what causelessly, timelessly, always is: awareness, open and empty, quiet and still; a prelude to the threshold of wholeness and the simplicity of Being…

  1. Snap! Thanks Michael, just been having a read through all the last few posts, the after thoughts… I really like the way you create these ‘paragraphs of perception’ (for lack of a better description?), it makes for interesting reading, and some perfect quotes, my favourite: the last paragraph of 57!
