Seeking to Know Life
Seeking from our mind is often an endless ride on a hamster wheel. Seeking from our being is part of our inheritance as a living being.
Each living thing has something within it that drives it to grow, to evolve- to go from what was, into newness. This movement to “life” is inherent within existence itself. In plants and animals we simply call it maturing, or growing. In human beings we can connect with it as aspect of “a me” wanting to know a greater sense of Me-ness. We may call it seeking: a seeking of life wanting to know itself in/as Life.
The trickiest aspect of knowing this is that it is Known from our direct experience, from our beings (from life itself), as opposed to our habitual source of thinking and imagining.
When we slow down, and open up, we can notice and experience our direct connection to/with/as Life- just as we can notice animals’ and plants’ connection with/as/through Life.
Take a moment and notice: in direct experience perceptions seek themselves… Hearing seeks hearing, taste seeks taste, touch seeks touch, and so on.
Does that seem true as you notice what perceptions arise and arrive?
A new participation is happening every moment in the being, not the mind, the BEing. The being is the life force life-ing. Life “goes after” life; not subject/object per say but inherently. Your mind doesn’t have to seek, your being seeks life itself. It’s born to seek, to know, life.
There is just this exchange happening, a participation. An intrinsic participation happening of a very different sort than the mind conceives. Life is inherently driven to do itself, to be itself, to know it’s greater realm of Beingness- through, in, and with Life itself.
