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?
  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.
