Making Things Out Of Thought Is Illusion

It's best not to try and make anything out of anything because things are just of the mind of thoughts.

The mind of thoughts is an endless chase after things, or thought after thought. That is the function of the mind of thoughts.

Watch the thoughts gather and dissipate like clouds upon a mountain peak.

Ultimately the core thought of a "me" fades as well and freedom is recognized as the original mind, or the awareness behind all appearances and "things".

Who or what is watching? Your true nature. The underlying awareness that is the source of all appearance.

There is no thing that stands alone as a separate reality.

Grasping at things, or thoughts, is a cause of suffering.

This Is All There Is, Timeless Being

This is all there is, there is no other. If there is something other than what is being experienced right now then show it to yourself. Where else is anything really happening? When else are thoughts and memories occuring? The only thing that can be said for sure is that this is happening here, right now. The thought that something else is happening to someone else somewhere else is only a thought happening right here and now. You can call a friend and they can verify that they are doing something else somewhere else, but when you make that call what your friend tells you is only happening right here and now.

All is merely an appearance happening right here and now. This is all there is. There is no other. Nothing lasts but the here and now which is timeless Being.

Where Are You? What Is This?

A good exercise for looking into what you are compared to what passes within you.

View any inanimate object in your immediate landscape. My son and I were just looking at a parking meter that stood out before us outside the University Library. So just choose something and have a look and ask yourself honestly and deeply:

Has that object ever existed before? Has it ever existed in some kind of a past? If you answer yes, then where and when is that past object and space in which it appeared? Can you locate such a thing and event?

Does that object ever exist in a future? If yes, then where and when does that object appear? Where is this object and space in which it appears? Is there ever a future in which such an event ever occurs and an object appears?

Is that object appearing now? If yes, then where is that object and space of now in which it appears? Can you ever fix such a thing in a present moment? Is there ever a now in which the object appears?

Are there really any things that appear ever? Or, are things just impermanence? Does any thing or any time ever really exist independently?

Upon seeing the non-existence of existence then look for your self. Where and when do you appear in these observations? Do you ever appear in all of this? Or does all of this seem to appear in you?
