If freedom is established, you must be able to enjoy the experience of it.
There is a huge difference between; having the freedom to choose from a self-generated list of options, and choosing the status of nothingness.
In pursuit of the former freedom, self is vitally involved. Things have to make sense, be worthy, be exciting, have promise. In the latter, self disappears.
You are led by something higher called the Infinite where words are disestablished along with all human concoctions of building blocks to construct paths.
It’s allowing the almighty mind to sit in the audience of impotence . . . and giving ‘total peace’ the stage.
The elimination of the worldly is the answer. When you find you are carrying nothing, everything appears, in a splendor so elevated that no words can explain.
Rumi says it in eighteen words; ‘Out beyond the idea of right doing and wrong doing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.’
As with all things of such exalted merit, their acquisition comes just the opposite of how humans would expect. Here, what works is – the absence of pursuit. To flee the neighborhood which only knows learned answers as to something being right or wrong.
That’s the tip of the iceberg, but that is the whole iceberg. Basically, this Infinity, has nothing to do with you, or me, or anybody. It comes when we want it least. It enters when we have given up on our reasoning. The foundation of your ‘well-being’ comes from NOT doing.
Life . . . within the Tao.
