Notes by TK

Reality is what the mind makes of life. Reality is external; life is not so. The stomach is the source of nourishment for ordinary thinking. Enlightenment is not a mental process, not a correction of the mind’s work (reality/external). The external is good only for the body, useless for the non-ordinary effort.

TONIGHT’S FABLE,ENTITLED: “WHAT GIVES!?”
IN A CERTAIN PLACE WAS TWO KINGDOMS, LIVING SIDE BY SIDE,
AND IN THE FIRST, THE PEOPLE LIVED SIMPLE, DIRECT AND QUIET LIVES,
`.°11m.’ PURSUING ONLY ACTIVITIES BENEFICIAL TO THEIR PHYSICAL WELL BEING AND SURVIVAL;
WHILE THOSE IN THE ADJOINING LAND WERE VOCAL, REFLECTIVE,
WITH LIVES MUCH MORE COMPLEX,
AIMED AT ENDS LESS EASILY IDENTIFIED,
AND WITH THE ADDED, “STRANGE” SINGULARITY OF THEM BEING CAPABLE-OF a GIVEN-TO
ACTIVITIES, THAT BY ANY REASONABLE OBSERVATION, SEEM DETRIMENTAL TO
THEIR OWN SELF-INTEREST.

IN A SENSE, MAN IS A CREATOR,
IN THAT THROUGH HIS MIND HE CONJURES UP THE SENSATION OF REALITY,
IT IS INDEED A WELL-BALANCED, FINE-TUNED, SELF-FUELING DYNAMIC, INASMUCH AS: WITHOUT THE HUMAN INTELLECT THERE IS NO REALITY, AND WITHOUT THE PERCEPTION OF A REALITY,
NOTHING FOR THE INTELLECT TO DO.

–;: HUMOR AND THE HUMAN ANIMAL
ONE MAN SAID: “WORDS MAKE ME LAUGH.”

WHEN HIS TURN CAME, HE STOOD AND SAID: “AND IN SPITE OF ALL THAT’S HAPPENED, — I REMAIN ONE OF EUROPE’S LEADING MUSEUMS. THANK YOU.’
* * *
(WHILE IN CONTRAST):
To HELP TEST HIS THEORY
EVERY MORNING BEFORE HE AWAOKE,
THIS ONE MAN WOULD SILENTLY, SNEAK OUT OF BED AND GO TO HIS WORKSHOP
WHERE HE KEPT TWO LONG WOODEN POLES, ORIGINALLY OF EQUAL LENGTH,
AND HE WOULD CUT AN EVER-SO-SMALL AMOUNT FROM THE END OF ONE OF THEM,
THEN SLIP BACK INTO BED, AND LATER THAT DAY RETURN TO THE SHOP,
WHERE HE WOULD CAREFULLY EXAMINE THE THEN UNEQUAL LENGTHS OF THE TWO POLES,
SCRATCH HIS CHIN, AND SAY: “MOST STRANGE — MOST STRANGE INDEED.”

PART OF THE QUIRKINESS IN TRYING TO DISTINGUISH AND DESCRIBE THOSE
INVOLVED WITH SUCH AS THIS FROM JUST EVERYDAY FOLKS IS THAT THE ACTUAL
/”.’ DISTANCE BETWEEN PARIS AND ISTANBUL IS NOT WHAT IT’S PLOTTED TO BE —
— FOR QUESTIONS OF DISTANCE, AND MEASUREMENT ARE ASPECTS OF REALITY & THE MIND, NOT OF LIFE & ONE’S UNDERSTANDING,
THUS, A CERTAIN SORT OF HAZARD IN ATTEMPTS TO SPECIFICALLY DETAIL NON-STANDARD STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS —
— BUT ALSO WHY STANDARD MINDS CONTINUE TO TRY AND DO SO.
IT’S AS THOUGH PEOPLE WHO KNOW THEY’RE NEVER GOING TO STRAY FAR FROM HOME FEEL BETTER BEING ABLE TO TALK ABOUT EXOTIC PLACES, BY NAME.
