Seeking for what?

Try this experiment; find a quiet place, take some quality time for “introspection” and then simply notice what happens…

For some moments there may be stillness and quietness, but at some point an inner movement may arise which seems to ask or urge; OK now, what’s next?

That sensation is the very core of seeking. You discovered it.

It’s a very strange phenomenon that practically all human beings take for granted that THIS moment is not it!

This moment is not it because something else, something better or something more fulfilling is yet to happen and we eagerly expect it. The apparent opposite, the fear that something worse or terrible may happen, is no different. Both are seeking. Seeking can be very obvious or very subtle.

Seeking is the non-acceptance of Life or Existence as it is. It is based on the illusion or dream that we can become something or get something in the apparent future.  To seek is to never arrive, to never accept, to never BE where all of Existence always already is.

The end of seeking could be called liberation, but paradoxically liberation can’t be realized through seeking or any form of manipulation. Yet to notice the mechanism of seeking and to see how it always fails, can be the beginning of awakening isn’t it?

  1. I think this is more of a door than it is a wall. Are you familiar with the practice of silencing the mind? Not only you start to become aware of your mind, but also, this thought and impulse to seek, becomes one in the myriads pf thoughts and desires. Desire is the key here. You seek because you want something more, but when you silence the mind and explore reality from stillness and contemplation, completely new things start to arise. Is is simply different, and in my experience, higher.

  2. I call that a survival mechanism. An evolutionary trait of all living things. Not the thought, but the sense of a body for more or better. I call it ego too. Or living.

  3. The end of seeking is true surrender, which could come when “seeking entity” dies of boredom. Even self enquiry could be a type of seeking until that exercise forces the ego to surrender.

  4. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
