Are they true?
Or they seem clear and we just assume that
they are true because there is clarity?
How do we know?
How do we know anything?
And how can this passion for truth lead to anything anyway,
as at the end of everything, when one really goes to the end, there is nothing.
Everything falls apart, returns to source.
At the end of everything is Nothing. And at the beginning as well.
All expressions, all intimations, insights, come up and disappear.
Born out of Emptiness and returns.
Only Emptiness remains.
Insights can point to the direction of truth at the moment of expression,
but then they are instantly passed their prime.
Their moment of glory is immediate, never to return.
The pointing to what Is, eternal and unchanging is true, is real.
Is the golden grail all through the ages, the alchemist gold,
the description of nirvana, the diamond of the sutras.
But the language used to express becomes
archaic and out dated in no time.
As This is ever fresh and new, and cannot be captured by any word,
not even the most sublime as it defies all descriptions.
Its beyond the known,
its always pristine,
always experienced in the ever present Now.
Its the ever ongoing open experiencing of all that is.
Try as you might,
you will never not be this,
As this is All there.
