When talking about the Living Inquiries, I tend to avoid the “unfindable” terminology since it easily can be misunderstood.
People may get caught in thoughts such as “if it’s unfindable, doesn’t that mean it doesn’t exist?”, and may even scare themselves unnecessarily through that way of thinking.
Instead, I often say:
Through the inquiries, I get to see how my mind creates my experience of X. And after an inquiry, there is often a sense of lightness around it, and less stickiness and drama. (It’s not about whether something exists or not “in itself”. That’s another topic, and not really relevant or important.)
Taking about living inquiries
Explore how the pen is created in my own experience. (Not ontology, whether / how it exists. Not relevant.) more lightness around it, less velcro
explore how my mind creates the experience of ……
- unfindable – can be slightly misleading?
