Every thought, every assumption every belief about reality. Challenge everything. Reality alone is all there is , there is nothing else. Every thought assumption and belief is ABOUT reality. Exist only as belief assumption and thought . Challenge them. Every one to see if they in fact are TRUE in reality.
Everything from your assumptions of the workings of a tap, to your assumptions of self. Pick them apart compare the assumption to the reality. Challenge them. Burn everything. What does not burn can not burn. What does not burn is true.
Truth, the truth of reality. That is the only goal. You are not trying to prove or disprove, you are looking for truth. Like a rabid dog hunting down reality truth is your only goal. Truth is all that is true.
From your thought that you can not climb a mountain to your thought that the universe is made of cheese. Challenge them. Go climb the mountain, compare, challenge. Let passion for truth the endless hunt after what is true compel you. It does not matter if you fall flat on your face. This is not about you. If you still exist it is as just another unchallenged assumption. There is no you no self you only think there is. There is reality alone. And THAT is your goal, the truth of reality what is true? What is REAL? Whether you have to turn back at base camp or you make it to the top you will have found the truth.
Then go inspect the universe look for evidence of it’s cheesiness, challenge your assumptions your thoughts about it your beliefs. Beliefs and assumptions will only limit you. Assumptions will trip you up before you take your first steps towards truth. Beliefs will burden you on your journey. No belief is true in that they are not certain, they are safe little fluffy cushions for the scared to hide behind, to hide their faces from reality. Assumptions are the flawed unchallenged thoughts you passed of as true. Why? Open the box pull them back out and re-examine every one. Challenge Everything.
BUT you must be aggressive and unwavering in your pursuit. You must pour your heart and soul into the chase for what is real. If you do not give it your all you are succumbing to assumptions. If you turn back at base camp because you THINK you could not make it, you deny truth and what is real and settle for an assumption a falsehood instead.. You have not found the truth. You slap truth in the face and embrace the illusions in your own mind. Fuck your own mind, it’s not even yours, you don’t exist.
Its black and white a thing is either 100% true or it is 100% false if it is even 1% untrue, it is 100% false.
You have to chase to down with all your strength you have to give it your complete all to be as close to sure as you can be. With every fibre of your being you must pursue the truth like raging bull following a red rag. And if it kills you? Who the fuck cares. There is no one to care.
Challenge everything, find the real. Never settle for less than the truth. Never give up the pursuit of truth. The only obstacle that should get in the way of your chase for the truth is your headstone.
Keep going. Keep moving towards more and more truth. Don’t give up. Challenge everything, find what’s real. Find the reality of every situation every place every thing, Everything. Challenge Everything. Constantly storming toward truth. Nothing is sacred.
You drag them out into the cold hard light of day Pavel and you look at them honestly. You look at your experience of reality and figure out whether these things you believe are true or not, regardless of your emotional attachment to them. It hurts, because one by one you realise that a belief is never the full truth, it is only a blue print for how you wish things could be regardless of truth.
And Bryan, thanks.
Wonderful, I would like to encourage all to begin with challenging what are your own truths as we humans are so adept at lying first of all to ourselves about WHAT we WANT to be true that we end up living the lie we told ourselves. I, Susan, have extensive experience in this area and spent a considerable amount of time unlearning these things. However there is no waste in God’s creation if we just keep our souls pointed in His direction for us as His individual children. It’s wonderful how He uses everything to brings us to the TRUTH. Stephen is right about the light of day exposing and purifying the bullshit and don’t forget that bullshit is just fertilizer and fertilizer makes things grow in the right circumstances! Thank you for the words, Stephen.
