There is truth in the world. There is a way in the world. As Sting said, “There is a deeper way than this.” And it is expressed in stillness.
You think normally that you experience events, but there is no such thing as an event. By definition, we use the word event to describe actions that occur in an almost mechanistic sense. Saying the word event is almost the same as saying the word coincidence yet both words are fundamentally meaningless. What exactly do they describe?
Something happened. As if there were no agent. As if there is no information involved. Yet has anyone experienced something happening with no agent? No cause? Or something happening that had no definable outcome?
It’s like when someone says something that we view as out of context. We just don’t see the cause. That’s of course possible. The range of human perception has limits which is fortunate and functionally necessary for us.
Like hearing only half a conversation? Yes, but we fill in the blanks. We imagine why something happened rather than accept that we have only partial knowledge.
Your imaginary answers are not confined to your personal awareness. They inform all of your behaviour, actions and reactions. Your every waking moment broadcasts your model of the world out into the world. Whether that takes effect in a constructive way is another matter all together.
Pattern of energy? Yes, indeed. We call this pattern of energy attention. We have no energy where we have no attention, and we present ourselves through our choice of attention. We show we are present. This is why when someone fails to respond to communication or chooses not to, people often say things like, “Is anybody home?”
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
