The ravaging thought..
Thought is adept at producing a
Story of me..an identity as thought..
This severe restricting of IDentity
Does not rest easy..thus a scramble
To find a missing piece to return the
Wholeness seemingly diminished
By that ravaging thought..
To recognize..finally..the thought
We are not..but the thought is OK
Un-divorced from the Wholeness
This story of ‘me’ is based in thought, and as thought is only part of the whole picture, when the story appears as reality there is an accompanying sense of lack. Seeking for wholeness is the story of the attempt to fill this sense of lack.
The search for wholeness arises in a myriad of ways, one of which is the search for enlightenment. Here too it is inevitably focused within the personal story, the partial, psychological view of reality, and consequently it cannot result in a lasting sense of fulfillment.
Whenever the play of life is not seen from the psychological viewpoint – the point of view of ‘my’ story – there is a non-personalized ,un-fragmented, picture free of any a sense of lack.
Everything is likely to appear just as it did before, but without the distorted view that makes it ‘mine’.
