“If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.” Albert Einstein
The Grand Illusion, it captivates us and imprisons us. It wraps us in a false image of hope and meaning.
The prevailing cry of mankind defines ‘Life’ as being the pursuit of ‘Greatness.’
We all secretly wish to be ‘Great.’
Yet, the Grand Illusion is like an Ocean that grips us around the throats and when our eyes turn inwards, it pulls us under the waves to keep us drowning in the delusion. We choke whenever we break the surface, our eyes drawn inwards into our own true selves, the pathways that connect us all to all things. We choke with fear whenever we see the ‘True Light’ because it is foreign, alien to us – a concept explained to us by a few, and an ideal that sounds perfect to the ears, but is loathsome because it betrays our every notion of what we experience to be ‘Real.’
It is, what is Impossible. It is, what is Improbable. It is, what is Undesirable, because the path there requires us to let go of our limited descriptions and embrace something that is incomprehensible to our natural senses. It defies what is reasonable and logical.
It cannot exist, because it is immeasurable and unknowable.
But for some, it remains a dream…
So, we try to explain it in terms that can be understood…
But by its simplicity, we believe that it is false – something that is unknowable must be explained in complex terms so that it can be understood by only the few…
Yet, it is something that can never be understood, not through our reasoning power. It must be experienced through the collective senses, independent from our notions and definitions, divorced from our reasoning and perceptual powers... It has to be experienced as a pure, un-tempered expression.
We do this through surrendering to the pure expression, the surfacing – the Awakening.
