All questioning is a way of avoiding the real answer which is already known.

“All questioning is a way of avoiding the real answer
which is already known.”
Zen Saying

All great masters have elucidated the difference between concept and experience.  Concept is the domain of the mind and experience is trans-mental.  The truth… we are told… is forever beyond the mind… beyond concept… within trans-mental holistic experience.  Concept may point us toward the experience… but experience begins where concept ends.

We may forever ask conceptual questions about who we are and what life is… but such mental mechanics if not transcended… keep us mired in the mind and limit our experience of true reality.  But… when concept is relinquished… what remains?  When the mind is still in duration… the truthful experience of what is… as one blissful consciousness… is unveiled.  Such holistic experience is always available through the art and science of meditation.  As has been aptly said… be still and you will know.

This week… let us endeavor to cultivate experience versus concept.  In other words… let us increase our meditation and cultivate truthful trans-mental self-awareness.  Always remember… the ultimate truth is forever beyond the mind.  Meditate… meditate… meditate!
