The Comfort Story

Until you can be with life as it is without needing it comfortable, a comfort story disguised as truth will continue its control and unfortunately so will the suffering of constantly needing to reach for comfort…

Just because you think something that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily associated with truth. It may be associated with what is thought to be truth, but upon further investigation it’s probably just a made up story providing you with a comfort of the way you think things should be. We use the story of helping others in this way, but it’s really in place to pat ourselves on the back because we make up the story that helping others is a good thing; we get comfort out of anything labeled as a good thing. We use God in this way to strictly provide comfort, nothing more; like there’s really something out there that cares about what you do. All these made up comfort stories block you from seeing the truth of what is really going on. If a story is being used to make up what truth is, I guarantee you it’s not truth, it’s only a story that’s providing comfort.

Truth is not something to know. It can’t be defined adequately with words because it’s only seen when the mind is settled. When you judge someone regardless of what they do, you are applying a story (your version of truth) of how you think they should be. This is the same with life situations, and these judgements are only there to provide yourself with the comfort of the way you think things should be. Life is always as it is and until you can just be with it instead of always wanting it in a way that provides comfort, truth will never be experienced. Thus your story of comfort (a made up version of truth) will continue its control and unfortunately so will the suffering of constantly needing to make up a comfort story…
