Welcome to Concepts.Gallery

An invitation to connect as human beings, to enjoy heartfelt company and clarity.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
And rightdoing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass
The world is too full to talk about.

~ Rumi



Word

Not the thing itself, but a pointer for our attention to follow.

Concept

"Concepts are defined as abstract ideas or general notions that occur in the mind, in speech, or in thought. They are understood to be the fundamental building blocks of thoughts and beliefs. They play an important role in all aspects of cognition."
-- Wikipedia

In the mechanical realm concepts are powerful; they allow to speed things up and to increase complexity. In the inner realm concepts can be barriers that cut us off from experiencing life as it IS; we tend to forget that our thinking is not the thing itself.

Belief

A concept with a personal investment .

Suffering

Blame, shame, guilt, pride, worry, anxiety, attachment to outcome...
Psychological uncomfortableness entertained in the thinking mind;
strengthening the "me" I believe myself to be, in the realm of "making sense".

Truth

That which never changes.

I am

I exist, here and now.
Effortless Awareness, before the sense of space-time, identity, concepts and beliefs arise.


Thank you Roger Castillo for your wise and loving benchmark:
"Happiness through peace of mind, in daily living, independent of circumstances".
It helps a lot to relax my mental confetti and to simply enjoy life.


What do I really want?

Besides celebrating life and not being intimidated by thoughts and feelings...



Rush or hush?
