Mystery, wonder, apathy, and Descartes
We vanish inwardly as unmystery unwinds before us, exposing itself as mystery everywhere; we dissolve into the Mystery, and only the Mystery remains. And for this to happen, nothing needs to happen; life itself is the marvelous; the mundane is the wonderful, and the sacred is the profane.
To simply watch in amazement, without thought of responsibility, respectability, nor thought of 'what we will eat', or 'what we will wear', is to give ourselves unconditionally to the exuberance of being- just being! That's all we need to do. That's all we can do.
Apathy leads to wonder. Wonder leads to apathy.
In the absence of understanding, and in the absence of desire to participate in the absence of wonder, nothing can be done. Nothing need be done. You want nothing to be done. You just 'are'. You exist! That is enough. That is plenty. That is too much. Who could believe it?
The judging mind creates the subject-object dichotomy, thus estranging us from the living oneness of being.
When the final pillar crumbles, and we can no longer even prove or validate our little, furtive selves by employing Descartes popular axiom 'I think, therefore I am'- because now all thinking is suspect of falsehood- only then will we stop all action, cease all inquiry, and return to the still, unbiased witness within ourselves- the eye which sees without preconception- which says instead: 'I don't think, therefore Eye am.'
We are that self which is a mystery to itself.
