The Pursuit of "Is"
That which is real. That which is true. That which exists. That which is.
All one and the same.
Reality cannot be that which is not. That which seems is not. That which appears is not. That which thinks is not. That which feels is not.
Is. Focus on is. All things real come from pursuit of is. Anything else is illusory.
Reality is found through the senses. The senses are not the gateway to reality, the senses are reality itself. Without the senses there is no reality. If you are sensing, you are real. If you are not sensing, you have died. To live is to be real.
Life is lived in reality. Be present.
Do senses record or do they project?
Perhaps we are passive observers, watching the world around us. There are “objects” and then there is “us” and we watch the dance of life go on. But then… where do the objects end and us begin? We say we can observe ourselves, but is it truly possible for that which observes to see itself? Mustn’t that mean that anything we can sense is not us, but apart from us? It seems we can never know ourself.
Consider this instead: perhaps our senses are projections. Perhaps our senses do not record but create. There is no way we could know for sure, after all. It is possible that we do not see the apple in our hand, but that our eyes put it there for us. Perhaps we are the creator of all things. But again… where are we? We cannot be those things we create, but do we create ourselves by observing ourselves? And yet for something to create itself, it must already exist.
A paradoxical choice between paradoxes. What a mess.
The problem and the solution lie in “you.”
What Is There?
I will not tell you that there is no God, or deities, or paranormal, or supernatural; or even a spirit realm that is distinct from the physical realm.
I will only ask you...
What is there to perceive that is outside of your five senses and mind?
If it is a possibility to know what is beyond the senses, you must get rid of your senses.
But no one is ready to do that; don't worry, it is unnecessary to do.
Using your sense perception, you create everything in this universe.
