The Prime Noodlebaker

Do not try and bend the spoon, that’s impossible.
Instead, only try to realize the truth. There is no
spoon. Then you’ll see that it is not the spoon
that bends, it is only yourself.

Is it possible that the universe doesn’t exist? That you don’t exist? That it’s all dream and no dreamer? Is it possible that there’s no such thing as reality? That truth does not exist? These are really all the same question, and it’s the first one we must answer before we can move forward. This is the step we were all escorted past when we were growing up. Not our fault. We were taught to believe that the universe as it appears is the universe as it is, but is it? And what if it’s not? Fail to answer this question correctly and you’ll spend the rest of your days plowing crooked furrows, and you’ll never plow straight again until you go back and fix the first one. That may be what you’ve done, and that may be why you’re here.

This is the Prime Noodlebaker which gives rise to the nondual insight, as you, I suspect, already know. Somehow, somewhy, you achieved the critical breakthrough epiphany that truth is one and two is false. That’s what nonduality means. That’s Pasupata!, the thought that destroys the universe. That’s the key piece of the puzzle without which no clear picture can ever be formed. It’s not the end of the journey, but it gets you past the first major hurdle and sets you in the right direction. Set out in any other direction and you’ll never climb above the clouds. That’s the hurdle we all veer to avoid. You did too, but you went back and corrected, and that makes you one of exceedingly few and puts you far ahead of all the smartest people and deepest thinkers you can name. No shit.
