Working the Ground of God’s Life (Part 2)

Imagine two people working the earth. Side by side they till the ground beneath them. Both know the quality of the soil, its weeds and rocks, and the heat of the overhead sun as it bears down upon them. There’s no argument between them about the nature of the ground they cultivate.

Neither person at work finds it necessary to have a belief about the earth beneath their feet — or about what it can, or can’t, do for them. Why? Because they’re standing on it. They are in it. They can taste it in the very air they breathe. Each person shares the work and receives the rewards of his or her efforts.

One way that we can start working upon the ground of discovery is to stop speculating about the nature of Truth. We can dare to see that our beliefs (about what is assumed true) are worse than worthless if, because of them, we’ve found a way to justify self-righteousness, indolence, cruelty, or any other self-isolating negative state of mind.

The merely mental person has no idea that his endless confusion can never be resolved by the equally endless questions he formulates to escape it… that these same questions are merely secret extensions of the very states from which he suffers. Where then is the answer to be found?

Know the Truth.

“But how?” you might ask.

Be real. Live what you are now in this and every moment.

And again you might ask, “But how?”

Each time life finds you without a clue, stop supplying yourself with answers you think you know. Instead, stand upon the ground of that moment. Dig there! Enter into the ground of discovery now at your feet. Consciously work these virgin soils and watch how new life begins to root and grow.
