Doubt is the possibility of division and separation in the wake of a state of unity and wholeness.
Unity and wholeness is a state associated with The Realm of Spirit and is characterized by self-encirclement.
Self-encirclement means the absence of polarity between the self as a viewer and the self as an object of vision…
This basically implies that there is no motion stirred within the vortex of consciousness to necessitate any linear stream of thought-no drifting outside of the circle of the self to look back at it as a numeric 1-a numeric presence with extremities viewed from an external imaginary eye.
It also means absence of a story line (My-story not His-story), because history is about the possibility of dividing The Now into a past and a future and entertaining a polarity between the two.
But how can one divide the indivisible?!!
Thus, you can say that doubt is The Possibility of The Impossible in the wake of The Possible.
Authentic unity cannot be divided; yet doubt somehow makes this impossibility possible through the mind envisioning the division; and the moment this happens, one falls from The Realm of Spirit down to The Realm of Soul, from The Circle of Being into The Line of Becoming in what is similar to a dream-state springing forth from a waking state.
Thus doubt is like envisioning the absence of something in the wake of its obvious and shining presence… Its like the fear of losing something at the same time you are holding it.
Doubt is thus a logical absurdity-an absurdity made possible by the mere fact that the mind entertains the absurd possibility (however empty it is), allowing it to superimpose its deceptive mathematics upon the mind's view of reality.
In simple, doubt has no presence outside thought; and thus it can be simply negated by silencing the doubtful thought itself, forcing it to melt back seamlessly into the vortex of neutrality (neutral consciousness or rather unconsciousness).
Negating a doubtful thought is about stripping the attribute of unity from it. It is like saying 'no' to the numeric frame that hosts the thought in mind as an 'is' or a 'yes'.
A thought is like a frame, it must hold something within. A thought must be about something, it cannot be about nothing; and since a doubtful thought holds no form or substance within, it sustains an illusive presence by the mere possibility of the frame itself (An Image-less Frame).
It is like imagining that the apple which is right in front of your eyes non-existent using the very form of the apple itself to carry on the imagination.
In conclusion, doubt is the hollow form that clings on to any meaningful form reducing it into a numeric presence by way of negating its possibility (imagining the zero state of it).
