Demystifying and pointing out the mystery as needed

I like to demystify what’s unnecessarily shrouded in mystery. And point out the mystery in what we assume we know and understand.

DEMYSTIFYING

So what is surrounded by unnecessary mystery when it could be more clear?

One example is awakening.

There are relatively simple ways to talk about awakening that demystify it.

And, more importantly, there are relatively simple ways to help people have a direct taste of it for themselves.

POINTING OUT MYSTERY

We also like to assume we know several things for sure.

So here, it’s helpful to remind ourselves of the mystery inherent in everything.

In a conventional sense, there is always more to learn about anything. What we know is a drop in the ocean compared with what there is to know.

There are always new contexts to understand something within. And sometimes, these contexts make a lot more sense and completely change how we see something.

Any story we have about anything is incomplete. The map is different from the terrain. It’s different in nature from the terrain. And it – by necessity – simplifies, highlights, and leaves out. Reality is always more than and different from our stories about it, and sometimes also far more simple.

This also goes for who or what we assume we are. Can we be certain our ideas are true? What do we find if we look more closely in our own first-person experience?

And what about the greatest mystery of it all: How come there is something rather than nothing? For me, this stops my thoughts and there is nothing that comes up in me in response, apart from awe.

MEDICINES

These two are medicines.

Demystifying is medicine for assuming that something is more of a mystery than it needs to be.

And pointing out the mystery is medicine for assuming we know how something is.


INITIAL NOTES

demystify awakening, awakening process, our nature, the process of noticing this + living from it + allowing our human self to transform w/in the noticing 

overlook the mystery inherent in everything, reality is more than and different from any story and also much simpler, that there is something rather than nothing 

…..

MAKING THINGS MORE & LESS MYSTERIOUS THAN THEY NEED TO BE 

more mysterious -> demystify awakening, awakening process, our nature, the process of noticing this + living from it + allowing our human self to transform w/in the noticing 


less mysterious -> overlook the mystery inherent in everything, reality is more than and different from any story and also much simpler, that there is something rather than nothing 

……

I like to demystify whenever possible. And to point out the mystery that’s here.

I like to demystify whenever possible. And I especially like to demystify topics that often are presented as more mysterious than they need be.

And I like to point out mystery. Especially in areas where people often assume there is little or no mystery.

DEMYSTIFYING

Awakening is often presented in a mysterious-sounding way. It’s partly by necessity since it cannot be grasped fully by thought. Thoughts are different in nature from what awakening is about. Thoughts divide

And it can be more simple, although the nature of it makes it difficult – and actually impossible – for thoughts to grasp.

POINTING OUT MYSTERY

We like to assume we know many things and there is little or no mystery there.

Demystify what’s overly mystified. And pointing out the mystery in what seems too clear.
