The Unfindable Inquiry
Many are finding real freedom from their suffering by directly inquiring into what they believe is true about themselves and others. The Unfindable Inquiry (UI) is a potent tool to help you in seeing through the stories that your mind creates.
Most of us walk through life feeling like a separate, deficient self. Beliefs that I’m not good enough, I’m unlovable, there’s something wrong with me, are often running the show from behind the scenes. So often we are not even aware that these false beliefs run our lives and circumstances. Consequently, we feel a huge sense of separation from ourselves as well as from significant others in our lives.
The Living Inquiries are not designed to make you feel better, or to get to some later point in your story, although this sometimes inadvertently occurs. This is ‘not’ the aim however; rather we allow all feelings, thoughts, outer and inner appearances to be as they are without trying to fix, get rid of, manage or change any appearances. You only ever experience thoughts, images and body energies, which include emotions and sensations. What’s discovered is that the self or person you take yourself to be is a false self and quite literally “Unfindable.”
Through this Inquiry, which includes the Boomerang, Panorama and Unfindable Inquiries, we go about looking for this separate, deficient self that seems to be so inherently real. We look to see if we can actually find it. We can also look for separate objects, other people, ideas, beliefs and spiritual concepts such as awareness, consciousness and enlightenment.
if you find yourself triggered in relationships with family, friends, work, or are struggling with addiction, deficiency thoughts, or any type of physical or emotional pain, then this inquiry is for you.
This is not a self-improvement plan. This is a looking from a relaxed self-less place. It is a present adventure into what is and not a way to change your experience. Rather your experience is totally embraced, welcomed and deepened.
The well-being shows up naturally as you see through the sense of “me” and “other.” When the self is looked for directly, it is Unfindable, and what’s left is simply what is happening, moment to moment, without the sense of needing to alter any experience. It is the end of suffering. In its place is Peace.
