The mind doesn't take us away from Oneness.
We ARE Oneness.
Thoughts appear, "we" seem to be "taken away"
in thought, forgetting This.
But that never happens. We are always here.
Like a twinkling star in the vast, always present sky,
It is thought that seemingly appears and disappears.
An imagined "me" dances in and out of Awareness.
We can never be "out of" This.
We can only always BE This.
Whether thought is noticed or not.
When we think that we've been overtaken by thought,
that we are totally "unconscious," and we act, according
to a belief in "me and other".....notice that that story is
always a memory, appearing now, in THIS, the pure
Being that we are.
If it's only a memory appearing now, where and when
and to whom did this "forgetting" story happen? Where
is this "unconscious person" now? Where is the "me, lost
There is only now. What we are is only now,
the timeless now.
Being is reality, timeless and location-less.
The story of me has to have a partner: time.
But the story IS Being, too. What else could it be?
There is nothing else!
So the story is real, in that it is the perfect
expression of Being (reality), here and now.
If only as an appearing memory thought...
But the story is not real in the way that thought says it is.
The story is made of Being, and cannot appear without Being.
Being simply IS, whether anything appears or not.
This is what we are, always.
We can never, ever be separate from This.
We cannot get back to what is always here.
Being can never be lost, or found.
"Lost in thought" is simply a thought, saying
that it is lost. It is Being, be-ing a thought.
That is all.
