ONE MAN SAYS: “I HAVE LIVED MY LIFE BY THIS ONE MOTTO:
‘FEAR HAS A THOUSAND EYES, BUT HATRED, ONLY ONE EAR.”,
AND WHEN SOME ONE COMPLAINED THAT IT MADE NO SENSE, HE REPLIED:
“WELL NEITHER DOES MY LIFE.”
….(NOTHING LIKE A LITTLE PARITY.)
XXX
IT HAS BEEN PROVEN TIME AND TIME AGAIN BY THE COUNTLESS TRAGEDIES THAT BEFALL MAN THAT HE CAN GET USED TO ANYTHING.
THERE IS HOWEVER, AMONG A FEW PEOPLE,
AN EXCEPTION TO THIS.
I DON’T REALLY HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO SAY ABOUT THIS.
XXX
THOUGHTS SEEM IRREPRESSIBLY INTENT ON CONTROLLING AND DIRECTING OUR LIVES, AND EXTREMELY FRUSTRATED OVER THEIR FAILURE TO DO SO.
THIS FRUSTRATION HAS BEEN GIVEN A-NAME BY_A SELECT GROUP OF PEOPLE) THEY CALL IT, “BEING ASLEEP’& LIVING-IN-A-DREAM”.
OH YEAH, ONE OTHER THING INVOLVED HERE IS THAT THESE PEOPLE-ALSO BELIEVE THAT THIS_SITUATION CAN BE ALTERED,
THEY CALL SUCH A CHANGE, “WAKING UP”, BUT GIVE NO EVIDENCE OF CONCEIVING OF THE IDEA AS RELATED:.TO-THE ORIGINS OF THE SITUATION, (THAT IS),
THAT THEIR THOUGHTS ARE FRUSTRATED BY NOT BEING ABLE TO TAKE CHARGE
OF THEIR LIVES.
To VARYING DEGREES. EVERYONE IS “ESTRANGED” FROM THEMSELF,
BUT NOT FROM POST-NATAL PSYCHOLOGICAL TRAUMAS, BUT RATHER FROM
THOUGHTS’ PRODUCTION,- NOT ONLY OF THEMSELVES — BUT ALSO OF THE SENSATION THAT THERE IS A “SOMEONE” IN YOU HAVING, THE THOUGHTS.
THE COMMON NEURAL ACTIVITY RESPONSIBLE FOR CONSCIOUSNESS HAS MADE MAN FEEL AS THOUGH HE IS “TWO” —
HAS PRODUCED THE SENSATION THAT-THERE IS SOMETHING:ABOUT-HIM THAT IS SEPARATE FROM HIS GROSS PHYSIQUE.

THE RESULT OF THIS IN ORDINARY MEN IS CALLED, “CONSCIOUSNESS” THE RESULT IN A FEW MEN, THEY CALL,
“BEING ASLEEP AND DREAMING WITH YOUR EYES WIDE OPEN.”
THE TRICKY PART OF PROPERLY. TREATING THE .NON-PHYSICAL ILLS OF MAN
IS IN A CORRECT DIAGNOSIS,
SINCE NO OBJECTIVE STANDARDS ARE AVAILABLE,
THUS THE TRICKY: PART.OF “WAKING UP” IS IN EVER UNDERSTANDING ARIGHT WHAT,
“BEING. ASLEEP”.ACTUALLY,IS..
P.s.: HINT: No ONE UNDERSTANDS.
….EXCEPT MAYBE FOR THOSE WHO’VE NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT IT
….AND THEY DON’T COUNT….UNLESS YOU WANNA ASK THEM ABOUT IT,
AND THEN IT’S TOO LATE —
YOU’VE RUINED IT FOR THEM
FOR NOW THAT THEY’VE STARTED TO THINK ABOUT IT THEY NO LONGER (MAYBE) UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS.
DOES ANYONE BY NOW REALIZE THAT I FORM SUCH VERBALIZED SCENES
NOT TO SHOW THE IRONIES OF LIFE, BUT TO GIVE AS BLATANT A HINT AS POSSIBLE
ABOUT THE CONDITIONS & LIMITS IN WHICH THOUGHT OPERATES,
AND WHY MERE THINKING ABOUT YOUR THINKING WITHIN THE NORMAL FRAMEWORK
THE MIND PROVIDES FOR SUCH THINKING ,:.,
WHILE PERHAPS ENTERTAINING,
IS USELESS FOR THE PURPOSE OF CHANGE,
AND IS IMPOTENT, IMPOTENT, IMPOTENT.
WITHOUT ANY QUESTION, MEN WHO CONCEIVE OF THEIR USUAL. STATE_OF-CONSCIOUSNESS
AS,NOT’BEING AS ALERT AND EMBRACING AS IT’S CAPABLE OF
HAVE MOVED FROM THE TOTALLY MECHANICAL COMMON HERD OF HUMANITY — BUT
SOMEWHERE DOWN THE LINE AT SOME LATER TIME AFTER THEIR INITIAL MOVE
IT’S APPROPRIATE TO ADD ANOTHER DESCRIPTION OF THEM, AND THEIR
DIVERGENT VIEW OF MAN’S CONSCIOUSNESS:
“EXTRAORDINARY DIAGNOSTICIANS
WITH AN
IMPERFECT DIAGNOSIS.”
THE WAY OF GETTING LOSE FROM THIS ULTIMATELY APT DESCRIPTION
IS TO NEVER, NEVER, NEVER ACCEPT ANY THOUGHTS YOU HAVE THAT EXPLAIN YOUR MIND. NEVER, NEVER, EVER ACCEPT ANY THOUGHTS YOU HAVE THAT EXPLAIN “YOU”;
FOR YOU TO EVER “KNOW YOURSELF” — THAT IS, TO ACTUALLY REALIZE WHAT “SELF” IS, YOU MUST CEASE TO SERIOUSLY ENTERTAIN WHATEVER THOUGHTS COME TO YOUR MIND REGARDING YOU AND YOUR MIND.

THE FIRST SIGN THAT A MAN IS REALLY BEGINNING THE TRUE STUDY OF HIMSELF IS WHEN HE OBJECTIVELY STARTS TO FEEL AS THOUGH HE IS LIVING HIS LIFE WITH A STRANGER — AN INTERNAL, UNNAMED, UNSPEAKING, OTHER PERSON.
THE NEXT SIGN. THAT A MAN IS MAKING PROPER PROGRESS IS WHEN HE STARTS TO BE POSSESSED BY THE DESIRE TO “SEE — IDENTIFY — AND UNDERSTAND” THE SITUATION AND. CIRCUMSTANCES IN HIM THAT PROVIDES THE CONTEXT IN WHICH THE .SENSATION OF”AN INTERNAL STRANGER” OCCURS.
AFTER THAT STAGE, ‘TIS DIFFICULT TO DESCRIBE EXACTLY WHAT A MAN IS UP TO, FOR TO GET PAST THAT PLACE IN THIS ADVENTURE
A MAN MUST BE INTERNALLY ENGAGED IN ACTIVITIES SO FOREIGN TO THE ORDINARY MIND THAT BY THEIR VERY NATURE
THEY DEFY DESCRIPTION.
SEE, IN ONE SENSE,
THAT’S HOW YOU KNOW YOU’RE ON THE RIGHT TRACK:
You CAN’T EVEN SAY TO YOURSELF WHAT IT IS THAT YOU’RE DOING.
ONE MAN SAYS: “HAD I KNOWN THEN WHAT I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE NOW,
WHEN I EMERGED FROM THE WOMB I WOULD HAVE DECLARED OF MYSELF:
‘How MAGNIFICENTLY UNPREPARED AND ILL-EQUIPPED AM I
FOR THE SELF-PERPETUATING ILLUSIONS. NATURAL IN THE LIFE OF, MAN-THE-CONSCIOUS . “
‘TIS THOUGH I CAME INTO THIS WORLD WITH AN INBRED HATRED FOR THE SIGHT OF TREES, AND WITH AN IMAGE OF TREES ETCHED.. INTO MY RETINAS.
HAD I REALIZED WHEN BORN WHAT I REALIZE NOW,
MY FIRST ENDEAVOR IN LIFE WOULD HAVE BEEN TO LEARN TO JUMP HIGHER THAN
I COULD EVER JUMP,
SO THAT I COULD HAVE GOTTEN PAST THAT DUMB HURDLE QUICKLY,
AND MOVED ON TO THE MORE PROFITABLE ACTIVITIES. THAT. .I NOW; ,LATER ON IN LIFE,
HAVE COME TO. EMBRACE.”
ACCORDING TO EXPERTS IN BEHAVIORAL PSYCHOLOGY; THERE ARE NO HABITS THAT CANNOT BE BROKEN — BUT I’M HERE TO TELL YOU THAT THEY ARE WRONG,
(AND I PROBABLY DON’T HAVE TO SAY ANY MORE — CAUSE
YOU PROBABLY KNOW ALREADY WHAT I’M REFERRING TO.)
IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE, THERE IS NOT ONE CHAPTER OF AA SUITABLE FOR MINDS THAT WANT TO LEARN TO
QUIT DRINKING THOUGHTS. (AND I KNOW I DON’T HAVE TO SAY ANY MORE ABOUT THIS,
CAUSE I’M SURE YOU UNDERSTAND WHY I EMPHASIZED THE WORDS, “WANT TO LEARN TO” 0 “LEARN” ABOUT DIGGING A HOLE — YOU JUST “DO IT”.)

LEGEND TELLS OF A NOW FORGOTTEN GROUP OF MEN WHO BELIEVED THAT THEY WOULD ACHIEVE THEIR GOAL IS THEY COULD MOVE CONSCIOUSNESS DOWN FROM THEIR HEAD INTO THEIR HANDS.

WHEN IT COMES TO A QUESTION OF “REAL” OR “OBJECTIVE” KNOWLEDGE OF THE MIND
KEEP THIS FACT IN SIGHT:
THERE IS NOTHING OUTSIDE THE MIND
BY WHICH THE MIND
CAN MAKE ANY MEASUREMENT OR JUDGEMENT ABOUT ITSELF — OBJECTIVELY.
IN FACT, AS LONG AS WE’RE SPEAKING OF “KNOWLEDGE”
CARE TO CONSIDER JUST HOW LITTLE WE CAN ACTUALLY, OBJECTIVELY KNOW?!
THEN CONSIDER THIS:
WE DO NOT EVEN KNOW FOR SURE THAT WE HAVE LIVED —
WE ONLY KNOW THAT WE THINK WE HAVE.
FOR AN ORDINARY MAN
TO LIVE AN ORDINARY LIFE
HE MUST TAKE THE THOUGHTS THAT PASS THROUGH HIM TO BE AS THEY PRESENT THEMSELVES TO BE
FOR ONE OF OUR KIND TO DO THE SAME THING IS TO SNOOZE AND DREAM THROUGH ETERNITY.
A FULLY AWAKE AND ALIVE MAN DOES NOT”KNOW”IF_MEAS. AWAKE OR ALIVE — –ONLY DREAMERS POSSESS SUCH KNOWLEDGE.
OPEN YOUR EYES —
SIT UP THERE IN BED, AND PUSH THOSE COVERS OF .
THOUGHT-DREAMS OFF OF YOU,
AND JUST — LOOK AROUND-YOU — ALL AROUND IA SIDE OF YOU. ….THAT’S ABOUT ALL THERE IS TO IT.

ONE MAN SAYS: “I NOW LIVE MY LIFE BASED ON THE PROVERBS, MAXIMS & SLOGANS I’VE COLLECTED FROM VARIOUS SOURCES;
I USED TO TRY TO LIVE ACCORDING TO RATIONAL DECISIONS & PLANS I MADE IN MY OWN MIND:
IT TURNS OUT THAT TRYING TO LIVE BY SOMEONE ELSE’S HALF-BAKED MOTTO SERVES ME JUST AS WELL AS TRYING TO LIVE BY MY OWN PLANS DID. FACT THEY BOTH SEEM TO HAVE ABOUT THE SAME AUTHORITY.
HUMMM, I SUPPOSE THIS MAY ACCOUNT FOR THE IRRATIONAL POPULARITY OF: RELIGION, NATIONALISM, ROYALTY, FAN SUPPORT FOR THE HOME TEAM, AND ALL BOOKS OF FICTION AND _BIOGRAPHY.”
LEGEND TELLS OF A MAN WHO ONCE SAID THAT HE HAD DISCOVERED HIS PERSONAL LIFE TO BE ONE OF A “FICTIONAL BIOGRAPHY”.

SOME SCIENCE NEWS: No POWER IN THE UNIVERSE IS STRONGER THAN THAT OF THE MIND TO CONCEIVE OF ITSELF AS BEING A POSSESSOR OF A MIND;
THE MIND WANTS SO BADLY TO BELIEVE THAT IT IS YOU
THAT IT WAS DRIVEN TO INVENT THE WHOLE CONCEPT OF THERE BEING A !’YOU”.– — A METAPHYSICAL “SELF”
WITHIN THE PHYSICAL SELF.
A SO-CALLED, “AWAKENED, ENLIGHTENED MAN”
ALMOST SEES-THROUGH AND UNDERSTANDS THIS SITUATION FOR HOW IT IS;
— “ALMOST” —
ABOUT AS MUCH AS A MAN CAN;
ABOUT AS MUCH AS THE MIND CAN;
ABOUT AS MUCH AS A MIRROR IS ABLE TO CATCH ITS OWN REFLECTION! –
…CAN’T SAY THAT IT’S LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE — BUT WELL,
YOU GET THE PICTURE.
AT LEAST, EVEN FOR NOW — DON’T STAY IN THE SNARE OF BELIEVING THAT YOU, DO KNOW -DON’T REMAIN A FOOLISH CAPTIVE OF YOUR OWN MIND’S, “FICTIONAL BIOGRAPHY” —
KEEP REMINDING YOURSELF THAT YOU ARE ANYTHING BUT — THAT – (WHAT EVER IT IS_THAT YOUR THOUGHTS TELL YOU YOU ARE.)
A MAN WITH A PROPERLY TURNED MIND IS CONTINUALLY ENGAGED IN THE WRITING OF HIS CONTINUALLY NEW
BIOGRAPHY AND LIFE.

ORDINARY THOUGHTS STAY INVOLVED IN CONSTANT DAY DREAMING ABOUT THE PAST & FUTURE
WHILE IGNORING THE PRESENT MOMENT BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT
.-.THEY. *ARE. FULLY AWARE OF WHAT LITTLE INFLUENCE THEY CAN HAVE THEREON,
AND THUS DISTRACT AND CONSOLE.. THEMSELVES THROUGH IMAGINARY SCENES IN WHICH THEY D0
HAVE AN IMPACT;
AN. INVENTED CONTEXT INTO WHICH REALITY CANNOT RUDELY INTRUDE,.
AND READILY REVEAL THEIR WEAKNESS,
A MAN WITH A PERSONALLY DIRECTED MIND IS IN AN ENDLESS STRUGGLE TO WILLFULLY DISRUPT THIS COZY:-LITTLE COMFORTABLE_SCENE WITHIN HIS OWN HEAD,
LET SUCH A MAN ADOPT THE DITCH DIGGER’S WAY .TO ENLIGHTENMENT”,
AND MOVE HIS CONSCIOUSNESS FROM HIS HEAD
INTO HIS HANDS
AND CEASE LOLLYGAGGING AMIDST IMPOTENT THOUGHTS ABOUT “HOLE DIGGIN”.
AND LET HIM,AT ANY:AND EVERY GIVEN MOMENT — DIG THE DAMN HOLE.
WHEN YOU MENTALLY CONSTRUCT A SCENE OF SOME.MATTER THAT AS OUTSIDE THE
VIEW OF IT COMMONLY HELD BY ORDINARY MINDS,
AND ONCE YOU TAKE IN YOUR VIEW OF IT FULLY, AND ASK YOURSELF:
“WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?”,
DO DIAGNOSE,_YOUR QUESTION IN THE MANNER MOST PROFITABLE TO THOSE SUCH AS US;
THE REAL QUESTION IS NOT “WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE I SEE?”, BUT,
“WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY INTERPRETATION OF THE PICTURE?” —
AND NOW,
TAKEN TO THE SUPREME, PERSONAL LEVEL
THE MATTER BECOMES THUS:
WHAT’S WRONG
IN THE PICTURE YOU HAVE OF, “BEING ASLEEP”
IS NOT IN THE PICTURE,
BUT RATHER SOME WHERE IN YOUR ANALYSIS OF WHAT THE STATE IS.
AND ONE MAN SAYS THIS: “MY FIRST TAKE ON THE MATTER WAS,i(FOR THE SAKE.OF AN EXAMPLE LET’S SAY), THAT MY THOUGHTS WERE INTERFERING WITH MY BODY,
AND CAUSING ME TO BE CLUMSY, AND THIS WAS A PRIMO MANIFESTATION OF MEAi
“BEING ASLEEP”, AND THOROUGHLY DISSATISFIED WITH MY CONDITION,
BUT I NOW HAVE AN ALTERED VIEW OF THE SITUATION, AND CAN SEE MYSELF AS BEING GENETICALLY INCLINED TO PHYSICAL CLUMSINESS, AND MY THOUGHTS BEING CONTINUALLY INVOLVED WITH TRYING TO CHANGE MY CONDITION AND STOP THE CLUMSINESS,
AND THEIR BEING UNABLE TO DO SO RESULTING IN THEIR FRUSTRATION
WHICH TURNS UP IN’ME’ AS MY IMPRESSION OF ‘LIVING IN A DREAM’ AND WANING TO AWAKEN
WHAT IS WRONG IN THIS PICTURE? — WHAT IS AMISS IN THIS DIAGNOSIS OF SELF?

991397
WHAT IS THE WISH TO AWAKEN OTHER THAN THE MIND WANTING TO CHANGE WHAT YOU GENETICALLY ARE?!
WHAT IS THE WISH TO AWAKEN OTHER THAN YOU WANTING YOUR MIND TO BE OTHER THAN IT IS?
WHAT IS THE WISH TO AWAKEN OTHER THAN THE MIND WANTING TO BE OTHER THAN IT IS?! …IS THIS A ROCKINGLY FASCINATING PICTURE OR WHAT?!
