The Cloud of Unknowing”

It doesn’t matter what we think or hope for;
our absolute reality is right here, right now.

“The Cloud of Unknowing” is the work of an anonymous Christian mystic, written in the 14th century. The text is a spiritual guide on contemplative prayer in the late Middle Ages.

To know God is to abandon consideration of God’s particular activities and attributes, and be courageous enough to surrender one’s mind to the realm of “unknowing”, at which point, one may begin to glimpse the nature of God.

That ‘glimpse’ is non-dual pure consciousness.
When we give God attributes, we take the name in vain, and it becomes an idol.
Give up the form, and realise the essence.

There is no mystery.
There is nothing other.
