'What Is, Is' may give some temporary relief from a process of mind that has been desperately trying to figure things out but it is a temporary stop gap to honestly looking and seeing if one is still searching for something that will make them complete, whole or free of suffering. There inevitably ends up being no substitute to holding ones own projections that color, alter and distort what 'already Is' to the light and seeing them for what they are. This process either culminates with seeing the belief of a separate volitional person and belief systems themselves for what they are or it goes on endlessly giving varying levels of relief.
Whoa! Is this a rant? Did this push some kind of button, or something, CG?
Otherwise, I'm not, like, prescribing this to anyone, CG. It's just a point of view.
