Beliefs do not and cannot save us. Beliefs have no power to liberate us from suffering. For beliefs are made up of thoughts. Thoughts are simply the process of thinking. All that is known of thinking is the knowing of it, the knowing that is in fact it.
Whatever the content of our beliefs, they are nothing other than bubbles and ripples of knowing frozen into form. At best, thought-forms can assuage our suffering but can never eradicate it. For thought-forms, when tightly grasped and identified with, are at the root of our suffering.
Beliefs, in whatever form, only reinforce this delusion and take us away from rather than towards true freedom. Freedom from suffering lies beyond belief, in the knowing heart of thought. Be free in the knowing.
Bliss Beyond Suffering
Yet, freedom in the knowing that is the end of suffering, is not the end. Deep in the heart of cessation of suffering is fullness of bliss. Beyond even bliss is communion beyond words and concepts, beyond duality and nonduality, in the indescribably joyful crucible of the triune dance of mutual self-giving outpouring love.
Yet, suffering and its end matters. Bliss and its fulfilment matters. And they matter because they are our natural inheritance in the One who saves, Christ the Radiance of the glory of God who loves us with an everlasting love.
Seek truth, realize suffering’s end, desire bliss, ask for Him to be revealed, and He will fulfil the desires of your heart. Not as the world seemingly does (which it does not actually) but in the life-giving way that only He can.
Nothing in this finite world, finite body, and finite mind can truly fulfil our infinite longing for happiness. Not even the seemingly infinite expanse of aware singularity. Only the truly infinite can and will.
This fulfilment is actualized through a process from localized consciousness and centred self; through de-localized consciousness and decentred self; to non-localized consciousness and no-self; and finally returning and resting in speechless communion of loving mutuality beyond local and non-local, beyond one and many, uncaptured by language.
Longing finds its end in the true infinity. True infinity is the triune God who is known only by His ever-lovely self-revealing illumination, in and by grace, through faith. It is time for humanity to embark on this journey home. For time is quickly running out.
