Is the Boundary Between Inner and Outer Just Another Illusion?

The question of imagination.

Look in your life and see what is imagined? what is real?

And the context is: ‘imagined’ means mind made, made by the mind, ‘real’ means untouched by the mind. 

So tell me, when you look within yourself, when you see all that is there, all that you know, all that you think, all that you feel, all this movement in your consciousness, for you to see it, it needs to be seen, it needs to be an image in some form, it has an appearance, it has a recognizable look, you can refer to it, you see this, you see that, all together imagined. 

You look outside, you see with your eyes and your perception goes beyond just the sense, you feel what you see, you see something that you like, you feel attraction, you see something that you don’t like, you see resistance, and you look through this resistance and through this attraction. 

So is it possible that you watch your imagination, both inside and outside? 

And is the line between the two real or imagined? 

If you see the so-called outside through the imagination, you are still looking in the imagination, which you consider to be inward. 

So then you ask, “what is real?”

But who is asking? 

Isn’t this which is asking not the same entity that creates the images? 

Is the question a form of an image? 

Can the question be recognizable, understood? 

Can it refer to anything which is not imagined? 

And the creation of that question, isn’t it a process of imagination, projection, seeing within the space of the mind? 

This is something that you can only ask by admitting that the question and the answer come from the imagined space. 

And if you ask diligently, with passion, with depth of perception, the question becomes: “what is real?”

And that question is imagined too. 

So it continues to, “what is a real question that is not imagined, that is not made by the mind, by the imagined mind, by the knowing mind?” 

And then you see very directly, it’s the question of unknown.

No one knows the question of unknown.

No one can ask it. If it’s asked, it is imagined. 

But can you admit the question of unknown beyond the imagined, beyond the understood, beyond the known? 

Find out.
