TRUTH OF ORIGINAL BEING
A CRAB’S HEART/SHADOW VISION
the plenum within humanity,
giving stamp to everything,
is necessarily invisible.
that is shouldn't be the way that it is
is a type of insanity.
This insanity destabilizes us.
It's a bit like going up a brick wall, telling it that it shouldn't be there,
and then continuing to walk into it.
Every time you bump your head on it, you judge the brick wall for being there,
and then you walk into it again, again bumping your head.
Then you say it shouldn't be there, at which point you condemn yourself
to the pain you have in your head.
It's a kind of insanity to be constantly arguing with what is and thinking it should be different. It's a way that we keep bumping into life.
When we collide with life in this way,
we always feel interior friction,
and we can never find the inner stability for which we yearn.
but the cost is high,
and the achievements fortify our belief
that we must keep doing,
taking us further and further from the essential stillness
we long to find,
luring us into exclusively identifying with and relying upon our ego's ability to do.
