Reclaim the space you take
in your sphere of consciousness,
distracting your attention
from the things that matter in this instance.
We live inside a bubble of a self
trying to be aware of itself,
consumed in a vicious cycle of trying to be
but being defeated by the same goal it tries to achieve.
Make way for you to surface
by disappearing and not existing at all,
as if you are forgotten and lost to this instance
from the records we try to keep.
Remember the instance,
and don’t be aware of it.
It goes against everything you believe,
yet in the essence of being
the most pristine and pure form
is to be not there.
Literally, figuratively, and in every other way
you can think of,
it’s the scariest thing
you will ever do,
yet it will be the most alive
you have ever felt or been.
Let go of the idea of YOU.
The obsession with what defines you
or the thoughts that keep you alive
and in your absence, your most authentic truth appears.
by the cognitive load of being
what it feels like is hard to explain,
but once you find it or technically lose it,
you will never want it back.
Get out of the way!
This article is fascinating in and by itself and totally worth a full read, but I can’t summarize it. Instead, I want to draw your attention to this statement on unpopular questions: “The award honors Clauser, Aspect, and Zeilinger, but it is testament to all the researchers who were unsatisfied with superficial explanations about quantum mechanics and who asked their questions even when doing so was unpopular.”
