Recommendation – How to read the words in the New Dictionary:
A word is a vessel through which essence, energy passes. The word is never the thing itself.
What is the real “thing”? It is good to answer this question in silence.
Therefore the invitation to this dictionary is “tricky”; it seems like it tries to replace one “definition” with another “definition” but it does not. This dictionary is an opportunity to look at a word from a different perspective than we are used to. And ask what is the essence of this word, coming from the mystery? From nature? From the inconceivable knowing that everything is one, everything is motion and I am a part of it?
From here you will find that the new “definition” sometimes sounds poetic or even irritating to the mind, because it cannot understand it. It’s OK. Let the words be a tool and listen to the energy that passes through them. That’s exactly what we came here to do.
Coming out of the knowing that everything is connected and everything is in motion:
Certainty is this exact moment. It is only what is now. This is the only time that it can ever exist. This moment and then the next, and the next, and the next…
Certainty is knowing that every step shows the next step, that the sun sets and rises. Remembering my true nature is the only certainty upon which I can rely. This is when I will remember that every moment is correct, that every moment is a world unto itself, that every moment is an opportunity to see and to love, that every motion gives birth to the next motion.
This is knowing. And then I won’t need to find new paths or promises or signatures or agreements. Then I can give in to the energy of life that is alive in me, because I will see the quiet within me, I will see myself as a being that is happy and dependent on nothing.
“There is no such thing as arriving, only a sequence of becoming.”
We got used to thinking of certainty:
I desire certainty in order to feel secure in this world. Certainty makes me feel like I am in control of my life. It makes me feel like I understand things, know things, can plan the direction of my life.
It creates in me an inner quiet. It helps me feel that I can trust myself, that I know what is good for me and what is not. It gives me the feeling that I am moving in the right direction, that I see the future, that I am right, that I have been correct in my choices.
If I know that means that I am strong, that I am in control, that I moving in the right direction. I therefore want certainty from my partner, from my workplaces, from my friends. And I will avoid relationships and situations in which certainty is flimsy.
The reality created: We feel the need to constantly understand things. We become dependent on our ability to envision and anticipate. Our mind is terrified and frightened because it cannot give us a real answer. It can’t, because we really don’t have access to what will be.
But as a result, it is composed of particles of truth. It writes stories, creates assumptions and invents logic. And we believe the stories out of our mistaken assumption that we need to understand in order to not get lost or be helpless; in order to not feel insufferable pain.
We live contrary to the natural motion. We live against truth, because certainty doesn’t really exist. We get stuck and we feel pain but we tell ourselves that we have no choice because living in uncertainty simply isn’t an option.
