Already know

 

We already know. 

We know what we are because we experience it throughout the day, and it is right here now in immediate awareness. 

We may not notice, recognize it, or take it seriously as something to investigate, but we still know. 

We know that we are not content of experience, because content of experience comes and goes and something – what we are – does not come and go. 

We know stories are not true. They are not true in a conventional sense, since their reversals always have truth in them and entierly different stories may make more sense to us than the ones we are familiar with. And they don’t – and cannot – touch what we and everything are. 

We know all this. We know we are that which experience happens within and as, because it comes more to the foreground throughout the day, whenever identification is relaxed out of content of experience. 

Yet, we don’t always notice it. We don’t always recognize it as what we are. We don’t always take it seriously and as something worth investigating. 

And when we do notice, recognize and investigate, it may take quite a while to become familiar with it. To trust it. To allow ourselves to reorganize and align with it. 

It is all too easy to grasp onto identifications, because that is what we are used to and what seems safe. And some of those identifications may be with stories about exactly these things, stories about what we are which may be as true as stories can be. But we are still identifying with content of experience, holding onto the bank of the river when we are invited to let go and trust. 

We are so used to take ourselves as content of experience that it may take a while to learn to trust. To let all identifications go and relax into and as what we – and everything – already are. And then allow this human self to reorganize, function and mature within that new context. 

………

Initial outline…

  • we already know
    • we know what we are, b/c experience it throughout the day (may not notice, recognize, take seriously as something to investigate)
      • know we are not content of experience, b/c content of experience come and go and something – what we are – does not
    • we know stories are not true
      • not in a conventional sense, even if they can be very useful (reversals always has truth in them + entierly different stories may make more sense to us than the ones we are familiar with)
      • and don’t touch what we – and everything – are
    • know and don’t know
      • we know
      • yet don’t notice, recognize or take it seriously
      • need to familiarize ourselves with it, explore it over and over, gradually allow ourselves to reorganize and realign with it
