Mental understanding can influence or affect our perception of Truth. So what do we really know? If I understand what love is when I go into a relationship, can you see this might limit my experience? At the minimum, my expectations – negative or positive – affect what I perceive, what I know is possible and of course my behavior. Behavior affects our results which affect our beliefs and so the cycle goes. It’s easy to see this in others, but are we open to seeing what we might be up to behind the scenes?
What do we really know? We are so much more than what we ‘think’ we are.
If the Truth is the ocean, does the ocean fit in the bucket of the mind? If I only identify with the mind, that’s all I can know – all I can contain. What we must realize is that the mind can only come from what it knows – an often distorted view formed by past events from our life as well as the lives of our parents and ancestors. We can see that this narrow point of view probably didn’t work for them – so how would we be any different? Doing the same thing and expecting a different result… We know where that ends up!
A sweet experience…
But if I’m willing to surrender that identity; if I’m willing to surrender what I know – even for a sacred breath, then the Infinite can fill me. Relating this to Lao Tsu, I can see that even the simple act of ‘doing nothing’ reveals what’s already present: That I am already full of the ocean of consciousness. I can identify with this ocean instead of a bucket full of something else.
