Truth.

Truth is what some call the Journey. It seems in life everyone searches for a truth. A truth to life, a truth to anything. But ironically the truth is never that, it is never found, never obtained. The truth as holy as it is, is nothing more than a dream. A wondrous, never ending slog of a dream.

No, the truth is not the journey it is only it's fuel.

Answers are what some call the journey. The problem though with answers is once discovered the journey ceases and the questioning stops. What is a human with all the answers? A genius? Or a bio-robot? A soulless manifestation of meat.

Answers atleast premature ones are the friction in the journey. One must remember to never given to this human fail safe. One must remember to always question.

So what is the journey? Truthfully, I do not have the answers. What I do know is we are a journey. We are the point from A to infinite. We are the driving force in a universe that strives to understand itself.

To ponder is the journey. The journey is the reason of being.

There is no journey. There. Is. Only. Right. Now.

Because you observe from the Center of your Mind, this implies there is an Outward Mind.

If you are observing from the Center of your Mind, this Center has No Shape or Size, and thus is Non-Dimensional.

The Outward or Greater Mind knows All, as it is All and contains the Center of the Mind.

But the Center having No Size or Shape knows Nothing, except that it exists, and seeks to know its outward being again.

The outward Mind tries to "Awaken" its Center, so that the Center can come to be Aware of the Outward Mind.

Sometimes Questions are more important than Answers - as philosophers have been saying for centuries. But what happens when one loses the drive to Question? What happens when The Journey seems empty and pointless?

You have to wade through the emptiness. I too have felt the pointlessness of questioning but once you relise that the journey to truth is more important than the truth itself, the emptiness fades.

You will start to enjoy and love the path you are taking.
