Wake Up Already

Forgetfulness is the mark of this world. What is the use of seeking that which is forgotten when the only way of finding it is to remember?!

What we have lost is not to be found in the world, for we are in the world precisely because we lost. World is the face of forgetfulness.

World is that which makes forget. To see the truth, that is to remember it, we must look away from the world.

Lost in the world we lust for the world. We are found only when we lose the lust.

The God that we seek, the God of all religions and philosophies, is an all too worldly God. The God that we had is the one doing the seeking. God, too, sank in forgetfulness when He looked at the world. God forgetting that He was God thinks He is man seeking God.

Oh, you deluded God! Drop your world-stories and wake up already.

That seeking always fails is because we are seeking around this world-square that which is also seeking us. We are chasing after something, and we know not that we are chasing after our own shadow. And yet, though seeking doesn’t find, not seeking doesn’t find either: Truth is found not by our seeking but by waking up to our seeking.

“The face of truth is concealed by a golden vessel.” *

*Isha Upanishad

One thought on “Wake Up Already

  1. Dear tomajji.
    Thank you very much for not mincing words when you wrote God we are seeking is the worldly God.
    Kindly allow me to mention the Gita sloka 66 of chapter 18 which exactly tells to drop/renounce every bit of belief,trust,faith of this world so that i can reveal my face and there is a bonus ( in worldly parlance) that the omissions and commissions will be wiped out.
    To see elsewhere is not the cup of tea for all.
