Inquiry: Something terrible can happen

 

Something terrible can happen.

  1. True?
    Yes. Feels true. (I can find the place where it feels true in me.)
  2. Sure?
    No.
  3. What happens when I believe that thought?
    • I am afraid something terrible will happen, even if I don’t know what it would be.
    • There is a feeling, an atmosphere, of something terrible about to happen.
    • Tension. Feel small. Located at a point in time and space. A small object in a world of infinitely many other objects, each one with the potential of making something terrible happen to me.
    • When did I first have that thought? Cannot remember, although I suspect it was as a young kid when adults around me acted as if something terrible had (or could) happen. I learned to adopt that pattern for myself, since that seems to be the thing to do.
  4. Who am I without it?
    • Clear. Receptive. Timeless present. Curious. Relate to whatever happens with less or no drama.
  5. Turnarounds.
    • Something terrible will not happen.
      • No. Whatever happens is just sensation, sight, sound, smell, taste, thought arising here now in timeless present. Anything else is creations and elaborations by the mental field.
      • Whatever happens is just its own thing, inherently free from the label “terrible”.
      • Anything happening appears one way or another depending on how it is received.
    • Something wonderful will happen.
      • Yes. Again, it all depends on how clearly something is seen.
    • Thinking can happen.
      • Yes. It does, and I can see it as mental field activity combining with the other sense fields.
