Whether it is understood or not, it still is as it is.

Ta-Wan


The fascinating truth is that, whatever this is: call it; life, universe, mystery or scientific fact - Can only be just as it currently is.

There is no alternative to right now. You couldn't have done anything differently, you can't influence the present state. It is automatic with no controller. It just is.

Understanding all, or being completely ignorant are both perfectly valid. Being apparently successful or an apparent failure are perfectly valid. The universe is forever changing state. We attach to passing forms. Your mind can become trapped.

Conflict in the mind is due to what the mind sees and what it wishes to see being different. Zen, Taoism and so on would have you see that what the mind wishes to see may as well be what it does see. And thus no conflict.

Even that is if you see great horror, that's what it appears to be. The desire for an alternative is where the mind foolishly, egotistically, places itself as sole actor and creator of reality, and convinces itself it could, should or can have an alternative.

The old "acceptance" - "yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery" cliche.

Que Sera Sera, Whatever will be will be, the futures not ours to see. Que Sera Sera!

  1. Everything Ta-Wan has written is a plagiarism of the Barefoot Doctor's Guide to the Tao. And I do not mean that as a compliment. B.O.R.I.N.G. Redundant. You sound like a fucking broken record. Nothing interesting, thought provoking, or enlightening in any possible way. It is all bullshit. Get your own fucking blog! Which means, someplace other than this!

Comments are unmoderated, so you can write whatever you want. We may respond...or we may not. It depends on the mood and preferences of the specific author of the post. Ta-Wan generally responds in a timely manner. Trey responds some of the time and Scott rarely replies (due to limited internet access). You can be assured that all comments are read by this blog's two administrators: Ta-Wan & Trey.
