THE LURE OF PHENOMENA

JOHN MCINTOSH


The false self loves and craves phenomena. These vignettes of great drama make this illusory self most call ‘me’, ‘feel’ alive. The exhilaration temporarily jolts it out of the boredom and drudgery that defines the dream-world’s unending parade of ‘opposites’ … the highs and the lows, the roller coaster of happiness and sorrow that describes ALL that emanates from the delusion of ‘separation’.


Currently, all eyes are on the April 8th/2024 eclipse with all manner of stories from dark to light explaining its importance. Indeed, some of these narratives will ‘seem’ to come true, but like everything that comes and goes it is NOT real … only another illusion on the stage of dreams.


The body-mind-identity however, chooses these phenomenal moments over the REAL since it is always seeking wholeness or completion, which it can never find since this wispy entity itself is NOT real. The deep dive into the REAL is the Silence/Stillness that appeals only to those who have been satiated with temporary things.
