The Great Secret.

Have you ever wondered what the Great Secret is?
I'll tell you.
The Great Secret is that there isn't one.
That is all you need to know.

Given that this is a nihilist forum I doubt you will find too much opposition to this idea.  If there was a thing that could properly be called a 'Great Secret' it might be something like this...

While we may believe
our world - our reality
to be that is - is but one
manifestation of the essence

Other planes lie beyond the reach
of normal sense and common roads
But they are no less real
than what we see or touch or feel

Ay, there be a shitload of little secrets, mate.

Perhaps the word 'secret' means to people who don't know, that they don't know.
And also that, for whatever reason, they feel entitled to know.

Is there no discovery and excitement in your life? That's all I mean.

If there were secrets, there would be no discovery or excitement, would there?
Secrets are keys to unlock mysteries.
But the mysteries are not locked.
They are what they are:
Mysteries.

I was referring to secret as mystery. In either case, ripe for the picking.

Maybe you are the mystery.

You can't remember something you never forgot, you can only discover it by exploring.

Maybe you're looking in the wrong places.
You may be what you seek.

But are you what you seek, right now? Yes and no, and therein lies the secret.

Simultaneous oneness and difference. The very same process by which you are simultaneously apart from the divine and a part of the divine.

Reality doesn't change with any discovery you might make.
But your perception of it does.
To discover anything, you must first discover yourself.

I certainly change as a result of discoveries I make. I become more empty.

That's it. Emptiness. The discovery that there is nothing to discover. No secrets.
Only mystery.

But the divine is Emptiness and less is more. Removing ignorance does not obstruct action, removing hate does not obstruct the heart.
