What Is, Is
Okay. Some of us, including me, have been hijacking enough of others' threads to compel me to start my own, for the purposes of it being hijacked.
In another thread, a few have been prodding me to admit that I have "beliefs". It has been, for some time, my endeavor to rid myself of my own "beliefs", which is to say, I see all belief systems as errant, in that they only serve the ego, in the sense that the ego uses it to say "'this' or 'that' is unquestionably 'true', and so I 'believe' it, and since the belief systems of others aren't the same as mine, they are unquestionably false."
To be clear, this is not to say that I no longer harbor any 'beliefs' whatsoever, since the ego can be quite subtle, but as I understand it, ridding oneself of beliefs is a process, and suffice it to say that I thankfully have enough humility to admit that I'm "in the process" of ridding myself of beliefs.
However, if in my self-inquiry, I ask myself "what do I believe, if anything," I currently must answer myself that I do believe, (I suppose one could say), that What Is, is, and that anything beyond that, that if I harbor any "belief" about What Is, is errant, as my ego makes the attempt to form a belief.
And so I put it to anyone and everyone to either challenge this "belief" (or idea, or concept, or whatever you want to call it), or accept it:
WHAT IS, IS.
