Path is a Concept

Concepts may not always be the truth; it can be entirely different from it, what one finds acceptable may not be acceptable to other. Yet we become seduced by a concept and desire it to be true

Concepts may not always be the truth; it can be entirely different from it, what one finds acceptable may not be acceptable to other. Yet we become seduced by a concept and desire it to be true.

Concept provides order and comfort to us, it is endemic. So we invest in the concept and follow it where it leads. At some point, inevitably we just can’t bridge the gap to fully understand, so we make a leap of faith, and that is one of the things from where concept originates. This happens subconsciously of course, otherwise we wouldn’t do it. But this leap of faith can be fraudulent, and if it is fraudulent then that means we are lying to ourselves just to keep ourselves in order and comfort. Hence, truth and concept both can be at opposite ends, there is no predefined path to truth, path is a concept. What I feel is, it seems impossible to grasp absolute truth, and perhaps the only freedom we have is to just see the limitations of self, to observe the fraud being committed repeatedly.

  1. i wrote about this subject too …
    be careful, writing is nothing but concepts;
    before you know it, your mind starts fogging around the central idea

    • Let’s divide things into two categories: Conceptual Stuff and Concrete Stuff. Everything is not concept; there is conceptual stuff and concrete stuff. As soon as you sense or experience something it gets defined as concrete stuff based on some conceptions, experiencing/sensing something would mean that it exists beyond concept. But all concepts doesn’t mean they would relate to any concrete stuff.
