Hello everyone, and welcome to 'The Obvious Elusive'. I'm glad you made it.
It's tough out there right? 7 billion lies all competing for attention, the ego in full glory, greed, suffering, the list goes on and on. But hey, you made it here, you are one of the ones aware enough to see the madness and look for a way off the treadmill. That's awesome, me too!
This blog is about uncovering truth, connecting with life without the illusionary self coming in between. See, in reality there is no 'you'. No 'I' separate from the whole. There is life living itself, and the illusion of you. This illusion is a subtle thing, but it is all consuming. It has endless desires, needs, wants, fears, insecurities, weaknesses, masks, opinions etc, but that isn't who YOU are, it's (to coin Gary Weber) the 'selfing network'.
This makes life a constant struggle, a constant need for ego gratification. But it's never quite enough is it? You never quite get 'there' do you? Maybe that's why you're here.
The good news is that you are aware of that, and you are looking for change. That's great, it's about time we straightened ourselves out huh? So how do we do that? Well, if you pay attention to the constant stream of thoughts, you'll quickly realise that 99.9% of them are about YOU. Maybe not directly, sometimes as subtle as YOUR opinion, or YOUR desire, someone has a negative opinion of YOU.
The way to step of this endless treadmill is to deconstruct the 'I'. A lot of people spend their lives trying to put out certain fires, like desire, or insecurity, but at the very core of all of these things is the 'I'. When you see THAT as the illusion, these things begin to fall away. The 'I' is the centre on which all other fictitious things turn, when you SEE that (SEE, NOT agree) then all these negative things fall away.
There is no one there to be insecure, or to crave or have a self image, so you kill it from the core.
Which is cool.
Anyway, i'll leave you to navigate your way around and shoot me a e-mail if you have some feedback or a question:
