Knowing-ness is a much finer energy than the quality of tightly conditioned thoughts. Knowing-ness Is a subtleness that is always Present but clearly not obstructive to Seeing. Thoughts are much cruder in their presentation in that they can obscure the subtle, especially if given enough allowance to perseverate. However, Knowing-ness is behind every thought and sensation.
Recognizing thoughts to ‘See’ their density and inherent ability to obscure, is a non-attached ‘looking’. Conversely, ongoing engagement in conversation with thoughts, is the implicit allowance to obscure context. Acknowledgement of thoughts but not full engagement to thoughts, is the ticket to freedom from being ‘lost’ in thoughts.
When a thought comes with a steaming neediness and unrelenting demand, its nature is revealed to be extreme, hard, and untenable. Untenable especially when viewed in the vast and open spaciousness of whom we really Are. Sometimes the demands by thoughts are merciless, resulting in inevitable suffering if allowed to persist in content.
It does not really matter as to what the thought actually is (content). It matters that the density of the thought is so wrought with unreasonableness that it is easily exposed as extreme. The ‘thought’ is really more of a message to Us about us. It is a pointer to our freedom.
This ‘thought’ is telling on us about our commitment to some dead-end desire that is upending our freedom to Be. It is not to be dreaded. It is beautiful in that it is an exceedingly clear message about our commitment in going to some counterproductive arena i.e. suffering.
Too much thought can be recognized as demanding more content than context. Or, more phenomena and less non-phenomenal Formlessness. And again in other words, more separation versus a unity of consciousness.
Experiencing this exposure and contrast, spaciousness shows its own freedom to us to be in this spaciousness versus the constriction of false self demanding more of false self via ‘thoughts’.
Upon the recognition of the deepest Self of Knowing Itself without thoughts, the connection is thus made to access this ever-present field of aliveness that is the context for everything. This ‘openness’ is the actualized freedom from ‘self’ to Self.
The disturbance of heavy dense thoughts, when they do manifest, becomes so obvious in their glare of extremeness, that they can be easily dismissed, if ‘Seen’ from the subtleness of Being Being. The choice then becomes either an engagement in a deep abiding peace or a waging of war via a disturbed ‘me’ and the subsequent embrace of ongoing suffering and separation.
“It is all alive Being.” -Purna Clare Blanchflower
The disturbance of thoughts shows us where we can go deeper. The Self is ever-present and available at all times and/or places i.e. here and now. The intention is already here as the ‘longing’ for completion/actualization. Even ‘that’ intention does not stand. The ‘longing’ is not ’It’ because We Are already ‘It’ Now. Thoughts make it a distraction. Being-ness allows uninterrupted Being (Now). There is no waiting for ‘It’ as ‘It’ Is always Present and We Are ‘It’. See ‘that’ from context not content.
There is no distance in time nor space to get to the immediacy of our ‘Isness’. Thoughts can be used, versus thoughts using us. And it Is all Us. See ‘that’.
Everything is everything and everything is love. Daddy’o
