Political and religious ideas keep one trapped as if order will come and stay.

One thinks as if pain and uncertainty one experiences will be removed or undone by ideas about Enlightenment and so on.

All pain and uncertainty you experience ( including on seeing the world as disorder) is psychological discomfort for you. To absorb this discomfort without any explanation is the key.
We have been waylaid by the ideas-

Tomorrow will deliver, future will be alright.

God will take care.

Someone else (guru and so on) has comfortably solved the enigma of life.

These are difficult times.

Can you notice that you are simply seeking relief from pain and uncertainty you are experiencing by these ideas, explanation?

Can you let go this relief?

You are face to face with ‘what is’ (liked or disliked, feared or cherished) from moment to moment.

The whole energy is concentrated here.

We are not moving from disorder to order, but from order to order. This clarity relieves the mind. Now any action is creation.

Otherwise we are fighting within and with the outside world as if order will come one day (illusion) and stabilise. All our actions become reactions.

The illusion traps one as if one will be happy when there is order in the world.

We see disorder outside. We can take action. Mind is enamoured as if by dealing with outside disorder, order within will be established-one will be happy. But within you there can be no disorder. Even if you perceive disturbance within, it is ‘you’- it is in the field accessible to you only. The disturbance within is in the format, which can not be acted upon. If you see this, supreme relaxation takes over. Now you can take action in respect of the outer disorder.

When you do not like or understand ‘what is happening’ or you face something bizarre-you coin theories to explain it away or adjust that you will know the answers in future through science or economics or tomorrow will be alright and so on. When you are stuck up and want to find the answers now, no explanation religious or scientific is able to assuage the pain of these questions.

Suddenly, you realize that there is no one to answer. You are Alone. From whom you are seeking answers?

Now you will touch the original pain, the original resistance, the original energy on which Life is sustained.

It is not the inability to find the answers but seeing that all answers simply give relief to the mind, cause distraction in seeing ‘what is’ ‘as is’.

The need for answers suddenly drops; you become one with Life as it is.

You begin to see ‘what is True’.
