We are great story tellers.In fact your entire identity is based on story. Without the story of who you are, who are you? Who are you without the story of YOU? Who is telling the story? We tell stories about everything, everybody, and everything is lost and found in the story. We have wonderful stories of God. Although God is not found in a label, story, or words. God can not be described in terms of stories. So God is not an idea, image, or even sound. God is found now and always now. God is not a past, future thing. Those are mind construction of an idea or group of ideas about God. God is found just like you are found before the label, before the word, before the limitation, before the judgement, before it all. The moment that it becomes a label, word, thought, story, the essence is lost and must be found, yet it is not lost. That is the paradox of truth, impersonal truth.
God is impersonal. Truth is impersonal. There is no ownership of it. There simply can’t be ownership over the all of now. It would be like an individual trying to sell you plots of now. As if there is a market in that. If I was to show you light. You would see the light in full. It fills every space and every space is filled with this light. Even parts that seem solid would be filled with this light. Now I would ask you where yesterday is? Where is tomorrow? Can you find it? Can you found you in this light? Where are you? Where is this story you keep telling us about YOU? Where are you? Sure you may tell me a story about where you THINK you are? But is that truth? Is your personal story so real that you believe it?
Same applies for God. Where is God? This question may open a little gate way but the question is just a question. If God is not a story, then you can’t be a story. You can’t be found in the past, or future, or through what appears to be mistakes, these are experiences but none of them are you. You can’t be the experience, so God is not an experience, because experience comes and goes, correct? Your identity is not found anywhere except where you are now. Same with God. God can only be found now. The story of God is a story that once spoken is gone.
So true education is to know yourself, and when you know yourself, you will discover God. It is not in the label, idea, image, experience, but found beyond that now. The suggestion being made is not that we don’t experience, but that we are not identified as the experience. If we become identified as the experience we have lost the life force of all.
Our language should be in observing, as one observes, then one should speak from there. We are constantly observing. Once we become identified with what we are observing then a story happens. Your breath is constant. God is constantly giving the answer. Nothing is held back from its children. Get by the story, labels, and identities. See where they come from. See if today you can be with things before they become something. Just observe and pay attention to when the judgement comes, that is how subtle, beautiful, and loving God is.
Remember to not believe my words. Find out for yourself. Be in the undiscovered. What the mind perceives as fear is really aliveness wanting to be unleashed. Love, love, love
