This is a website about ‘not knowing’, and what a liberating position that is. We live in a material world that values knowledge above wisdom, where mathematics explains the universe, where we exchange our time for money and where we compensate ourselves for our lost identity with disposable consumer goods. We live in a world that is dominated by numbers. Is it any wonder we find ourselves looking for something? Adyashanti is right, enlightenment is a destructive process, and one where in dismantling falsity we are able to discover our real values.
If not knowing is the position that you find yourself in then you are very welcome here. Spiritually I believe we are all created equal which puts all of us in exactly the same place as the most enlightened mystic. As God said in Exodus 33:20: “You cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live”
So we are united in our seeking…..whether the search is for enlightenment, truth, divine purpose, creating a better world, or even simply our own reason for being, perhaps the looking is the finding….. for in the words of Rumi, “What you seek, seeks you” or as the Spanish Mystic St. Augustine once said, “You can seek God only because God has already found you”…..Perhaps those that seek are only looking because somewhere deep in their own heart they are graced with the knowledge of a hidden truth and find themselves relentlessly pulled towards it. Even when spiritual journey seems like a road to nowhere, perhaps the spiritual call is enough reason to carry on.
