We are all seeking, and there is nothing wrong with that. The emptiness, the darkness, the sense of being unfulfilled - there is nothing wrong with these plights. Even in an end to seeking there arises many of the old conditioned responses, but perhaps these are not so bothersome. It wouldn't matter if they were. It doesn't matter if they are.
There are many suggested paths, some suggested more stridently than others, and some requiring more stringent actions. Truth is plain at source, and is everything everywhere, but truth is malleable when concerned with ideas and concepts, even the most scientific ones. Just pat your mind on its head and love its childlike need to have everything explained in an organised, sensible fashion...then just get on with it. What ever It Is.
There is no one path. (No, not even the Pathless Path. ) There is no ideal state of being other than what apparently is here and now. There is no perfect story, no way out, no golden rules, no absolute truths, no perfect hints and no sure-fire tips on how to Live Your Life. There is no perfect guru and no true religion. There is just This, and what is made of it by Mind is neither here nor there. Just enjoy it. Be it, live it. Try to fix it, or don't. Improve the story, or let it organically unfold. Try not to run away from it...but even running away is the perfect action, if that is what seems to be happening. If you get it wrong, let me know.
I have been Shanghaied into watching every single episode of all eight seasons of Entourage by my Entourage-mad husband and son. The joy of it is the work of Jeremy Piven, who plays Ari Gold, the Best Agent in Hollywood. He is simply one of the best comedic actors working and I am a shamelessly big fan. See his earlier work as the gay Versace salesman in Rush Hour 2 for a flavour of his range. In this clip's rant he may just be a hair from "getting it wrong" when he's saying what he'd like to do to Terrence and Lloyd! Enjoy.
