The Power of an Open Question - The Big Bang

From within the fluid and ineffable state of boundarylessness, the knowing mind experiences a stirring . . . a discomfort of sorts.  Somehow it's not enough to just rest in the boundaryless nature of this discomfort.  The knower of this discomfort then acts, and leaves the open state to become the doer, or "subject."  And what do subjects do? They define, seduce, wrestle with, and push away objects.  And this dynamic exchange between subject and object creates a whole lot of friction and heat, which activates a big bang of sorts . . . And the whole world of objectification bursts into action.

The world as we commonly know it is simply the expression of this basic misunderstanding or intolerance of boundarylessness.  This misunderstanding comes into play each moment we turn away from the fullness of experience to instead reach conclusions about things.  As we proceed to either push things away or pull them closer to us, we are acting out the drama we call "our life."  We traditionally call the energy behind this drama "karma."
