When you seek the origin of your thoughts, the origin of your being, you find that many knots that bound you become untied. Sometimes this is liberating as it yields freedoms we have long forgotten the taste of; however, sometimes this untying is terrifying as the rope that spines throughout our life becomes smooth with less and less to hold onto.
We all live in a gilded cage of one sort or another. We feel protected and safe within our cage, yet we live in our own self oppression.
The origin of ourselves…. Can it be inside the cage? We know the answer, so we may find we open the cage door and start exploring what is outside. We seek our origin, following and untying the knots on the rope as we go… We untie knot after knot and that lets us fly further and deeper….It seems like the knots will never end.
What is at the end of our rope? Is there an end? Can the knots ever end?
As long as our rope exists, one knot will always remain…. For at the very end of the rope, devoid of all knots, we discover it is tied to our minds.
What happens if we dare untie this last knot?
An Ox grazes on the lust spring grass as birds eat mites on her back.
We fall forever yet never before now have we felt the ground.
