It is because it is. These words are not precious or worthless. They are not good, they are not bad. They are not right they are not wrong. it simply is because it is


  • love. surrender. blind faith. they are all the same. the ego divides. abide in the silence and there is no separation. everything just is what it is. how can it be anything other than what it is. only in the ego's fantasy.

    OTOH, "IT" is HUUUUGE. An infinite amount of "IT" is beyond comprehension by mere ants or humans. Not even sure if "is" applies.

  • It is. Yet it is not. Yet it both is and is not. Yet neither is nor is not. Confused yet?

  • I said it a dozen times (oops sorry): language is a tricky little sukka. You be careful with that!

    Eve: Adam, Are we black, or white?
    Adam: Huh...?
    Eve: Are we Black or white?
    Adam: How should I know? Go and ask God, he'll tell you.
    (Eve leaves cave).
    Eve: God? GOD!!
    God: Ye-e-e-e-s?
    Eve: Are we black, or are we white?
    God: You are what you are.
    (Eve goes back into cave).
    Adam: Well?
    Eve: I dunno...he just said - 'You are, what you are'....
    Adam: Oh, right. We're white.
    Eve: How d'you know?
    Adam: because if we were black, he would have said - "You iiiz whatchou iiiz!"

    I read that in a magazine this weekend, in an article about Chris Rock. It made me smile....

    What is the word "it" referring to?

    What is the word "it" referring to?
    "It" is a biological-based and/or human linguistic thing. A product of the way the bicameral brain distinguishes among the chaos.

    Once DNA gained a cell wall and separated itself from everything else, we were destined to start making distinctions between it and not it, me and not me, us and not us.

    Probably of limited value beyond the human experience.

  • What is the word "it" referring to?
    That what simply just is. Pure loving awareness. The un changing formless that has manifested the ever changing forms with in self. The oneness that is all.

  • The meaning of two fingers in the air depends on which fingers and which culture. In the mind. Signlessness? But still able to drive.
