What Would It Be Like?

What would life be like if we knew that no thought was true?

No matter what thought appears, it does not accurately describe you or anything else. Thoughts like tree, sky, other, cookie, nation, war, wombat, fire....."he doesn't love me," "they are bad," "she is special," "we need to do x, y, and z to become enlightened,".....the list goes on and on and on and on....and it all means nada. Simple labels. No real meaning at all.

"Sure," you might say, "but the cookie tastes delicious"....and I'd say, "finger-lickin'!!" And it's just the Oneness experiencing the Oneness...yummy chocolate chippy Isness!!! Which seems far more real than the concept "cookie."

What if thoughts that floated in were simply not believed? Just seen, noticed? What if whatever was happening, there was just a registering, an experiencing of what is, without any belief that "we" knew the reason, the meaning behind what happens?

Who knows? We might notice a vibration of Oneness.....maybe a spilling forth of Isness....if we didn't believe anything, there might just be a

-BANG-

churning, bursting, outpouring of Self.....flowering into a kaleidescope of forms!

Life might seem to be lived here, now, spontaneously....without any need for an explanation.

If we knew that no thought was true, we could see, by direct perception, that something deeper, more fundamental was moving in us and through us than what we believed ourselves to be. There would no longer be a war of ideas within ourselves reflecting as war in the world. We would live simply and free.
