We spend our entire lives looking for direction and purpose, struggling to find a sense of identity. Regardless of how this search for meaning expresses itself within our lives, it will always be never-ending and in vain. We are unable to see that even as we seek, the truth of existence can be found in the very basis of the search itself. Because we are so concerned about our lives, we wander aimlessly without ever realizing that we are already at that place of utmost perfection, that our true nature is complete and free.
The Immediacy of Infinite Being explains how this seeking is based on the idea that we exist as separate identities, which is nothing more than a product of the mind’s limited mechanical functioning. In fact, identification with the mind is the only obstacle in the realization of true being. We are the very foundation of life itself in its immediacy, wholeness and sacredness.
The world as it is perceived, the life that we believe we lead, and the “I” we assume ourselves to be all arise as a play of consciousness within the heart of the infinite being that defines our true identity. Infinite being is all that will ever be.
We keep saying “I” think this and “I” want that, while at the same time saying that we want to understand what is real! One must come to understand who one is before one can comprehend what is “out there” – if in fact there is anything “out there” that is independent from this “I”.
