No matter how many times one illuminates the necessity for the brain to spontaneously understand the nature of the seeker it projects, thereby ending the seeker, for Truth to become one’s voice, there are listeners who respond, “Yeah, but….” Some wait their turn patiently. Others interrupt with this exclusive news: “Yeah, but….” And then we must hear what they’ve read. We must hear their certainty of secondhand knowledge vs. the speaker’s firsthand wisdom. They want it to be an argument because they see Truth as a kind of prison: they don’t like being told there’s only this one way—and it’s no way at all. They like options. Choices. They like themselves in action making choices. This feels alive to them because it’s all they know. They want desperately to bring all they know to the table, which is clear of all knowledge. They want a way to Truth when the “way” is out of them.
You may ask yourself why it is that we don’t choose freedom once the shackles of self have been exposed and the key to the shackles given. We never choose freedom, because freedom is not a choice. True freedom is freedom from choice. Choice, in this sense, is the interval of space and time that creates options and therefore indecision. We call the ability to assert our will on options freedom. But this is not so. Damaging, resting, and doing damage control on a loop is not freeing.
Truth is choiceless, is always the healthy, whole, action of total clarity. Where there is clarity there is no choice, with its weighing of fears; there is only acting. Truth alone is freeing. Not your truth and my truth. Truth alone, for Truth is action through one being, not through the doings of multiples.
Truth is not an object waiting to be found. Truth is not a seeker. Truth is neither I, nor found by I. I, who is both prisoner and prison. I, who is so ensconced in delusion s/he believes her/his ability to think about it is freedom.
Thought is neither freedom nor freeing, and thought is what you are. Sitting with that fact—choicelessly seeing it without forming arguments for or against it—is not just a key, it’s a wrecking ball.
