Jesus, Buddha, Lao Tzu, and other sages were aware of the possibilities within the field of conscious awareness. The key is to recognize universal knowledge as the essence of being. Thus, you spontaneously live life beyond word, labels and mind details. Yet, you accept mind aspects as a part of the isness of living. However, continual tapping into the spaciousness of presence frees you from mind dominance during any situation. Hence, life is an energy field that pulsates with active consciousness. And, this consciousness is universal. This is a space of oneness that we all share. Furthermore, this is a realm of nothingness from which everything manifests.
Jean-Paul Charles Aymard Sartre expresses our existence through the following insight in his book Being and Nothingness.
“At first man is nothing. Only afterward will he be something, and he himself will have made what he will be.”
“Man is nothing else but what he makes of himself.”
Truly living, rather than existing, so to speak, is enough without searching for an ultimate label or reason for being. The past nor the future offer no enlightenment of life and living in this moment. So, this is to say, that life is a mystery best to experience as a mystery. The first chapter of the Tao Te Ching (Lao Tzu 604-531 BC) expresses this mystery as the Tao (The Way).
Lao Tzu and the Tao Te Ching
“Tao (The Way) that can be spoken of is not the Constant Tao’
The name that can be named is not a Constant Name.
Nameless, is the origin of Heaven and Earth;
The named is the Mother of all things.
Thus, the constant void enables one to observe the true essence.
The constant being enables one to see the outward manifestations.
These two come paired from the same origin.
But when the essence is manifested,
It has a different name.
This same origin is called ‘The Profound Mystery.‘
As profound the mystery as It can be,
It is the Gate to the essence of all life.”
The simply act of your being is the essence of this mystery. So, don’t question yourself. Instead, accept and allow life to flow. Wishing you happiness and good health.
