THERE WAS ONCE A MAN WHO LIVED IN NORWAY — AND HE HATED IT —
AND AFTER FINDING THAT HE COULDN’T LEAVE, SPENT MUCH EFFORT IN TRYING TO
CHANGE CONDITIONS THERE TO BETTER SUIT HIM WHICH PROVED TO BE
APPARENTLY IMPOSSIBLE.
THEN AFTER HALF A LIFE TIME SPENT IN NORWAY — AND HATING IT -AND IN TRYING TO CHANGE IT — WITH NO SUCCESS — GUESS WHAT?, HE DISCOVERED THAT HE ACTUALLY LIVED IN SPAIN…AND JUST HADN’T REALIZED IT! ….(I MEAN WHAT WITH SPAIN BEING SUCH A QUIETER PLACE THAN NORWAY).

AN OFF SHORE FACT YET To BE MAPPED:
THERE WAS NO “HAPPINESS”, OR “SADNESS” UNTIL MAN LEARNED TO SPEAK. QUESTION: WHAT DOES THIS SUGGEST AS REGARDS WHERE SUCH FEELINGS MAY ACTUALLY RESIDE?
XXX
ANSWER ME THIS: WHAT IS THE ONE THING MISSING FROM ALL PSYCHOLOGICAL, AND
NEUROLOGICAL STUDIES OF THE MIND? FIRST PERSON EXAMPLES & ANALYSIS.
SUCH SCIENTISTS WILL SAY, (FOR INSTANCE): “As CONCERNS THE QUESTION OF WHETHER SYMBOLS ALONE CAN ACCOUNT FOR THE MENTAL LANGUAGE BY WHICH MEN “THINK”:
THERE IS. SOME INTRIGUING NEW RESEARCH THAT SUGGEST THE CONTRARY.”,
RATHER THAN THE SPEAKER NOTING: “I HAVE EXAMINED MY OWN THINKING AND FIND THAT WHILE SYMBOLS & PICTURES DO ACCOMPANY MOST, IF NOT ALL OF MY THOUGHTS, IN THAT WORDS ARE ALWAYS INVOLVED, SYMBOLS ALONE DO NOT CONSTITUTE THE ENTIRELY OF THE MENTAL LANGUAGE BY WHICH THOUGHT TAKES PLACE.”
CONSIDER IT: WHY WILL MEN — EVEN TRAINED EXPERTS — NOT TAKE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF A FIRST PERSON COMMENTARY REGARDING THINKING AND THE HUMAN MIND?

EVERY MORNING AS SOON AS HE AWOKE,
ONE MAN HEARD THE NEWS…IN HIS HEAD….AS HE LAY IN BED, AND IT WAS ALWAYS EITHER NEWS THAT MADE HIM FEEL GOOD, OR ELSE NEWS HE DIDN’T WANT TO HEAR.
ON THOSE LATTER MORNINGS, HE WOULD ATTEMPT TO “TURN OFF” HIS HEAD, (SO AS TO NOT HEAR THE NEWS THAT HE DIDN’T WANNA HEAR))
BUT FOR YEARS, FOUND HIS ATTEMPTS FUTILE AND FOR ONE SIMPLE REASON:
UNREALIZED BY HIM WAS THE FACT THAT THE NEWS WAS COMING FROM UNDER THE COVERS.

ONE MAN READ STORIES WHICH ABSOLUTELY CAPTIVATED HIM ABOUT PEOPLE
IN THE PAST WHO HAD JOURNEYED TO A FASCINATING-, LITTLE KNOWN PLACE, AND HE UNDERTOOK TO RETRACE THEIR TRAVELS….BUT FOR MANY YEARS, WITH NO SUCCESS.
THEN HE CONCLUDED THAT THE JOURNEY. THEY’D TOLD ABOUT WASN’T ACTUALLY PHYSICAL, BUT TOOK PLACE INTERNALLY.
HE THEN DEVOTED HIMSELF TO ATTEMPTING THE ADVENTURE WITHIN HIMSELF, (WHICH OBVIOUSLY MEANT, WITHIN HIS MIND), BUT STILL WITH NO SUCCESS.
HE EVENTUALLY DECIDED THAT EVEN THE NON-PHYSICAL, INTERNAL JOURNEY WAS NOT
A LITERAL ONE, BUT RATHER — METAPHORICAL,
AND THUS DID HE UNDERTAKE TO EXECUTE THE DREAMED-OF ODYSSEY AS THOUGH
IT WAS A TROPICAL JOURNEY,
GOING FROM A MENTAL STATE OF DELUSION AND CONFUSION
TO ONE OF CLARITY AND ENLIGHTENMENT AND YET
THE GOAL STILL ELUDED HIM.
AND THEN — FINALLY,
ANOTHER VIEW OF THE MATTER CAME TO HIM;
HE SAW THE METAPHORICAL JOURNEY NOT SIMPLY AS A “METAPHOR”,
BUT AS A METAPHORICAL ALLEGORY,
AND BEFORE YOU COULD SAY, “RICK STEVES”, OR FERDINAND MAGELLAN — BAM-O!
HE UNDERSTOOD WHAT_THE OFT-SPOKEN-OF, BUT,
LITTLE-ACCOMPLISHED
INNER ADVENTURE,HAD REALLY ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT.
BAGGAGE CLAIM MORAL:
No MAN HAS ACTUALLY “GONE” ANY WHERE WHO DOES NOT UNDERSTAND THE NATURE OF
WHERE HE HAS GONE.
…(PUT ANOTHER WAY):
You HAVEN’T REALLY BEEN ANY PLACE NEW
UNLESS AFTER BEING THERE
IT DOESN’T REALLY SEEN ALL THAT NEW.

THERE WAS ONCE A MAN WHO HAD “LOTS ON HIS MIND”, AND ONE DAY HE ANNOUNCED: “TO HELL WITH WHAT’S ON MY MIND! — ALL YOU STUFF — GET OUTTA HERE!”, BUT THEN MANY OF THE INNOCENT, (AND MAYBE, NOT-SO-INNOCENT)
STUFF-&-THINGS IN HIS BLOOD STREAM GOT UNDULY UPSET.
THERE WAS ONCE A MAN, #2: THERE WAS ONCE A MAN WHO DIDN’T KNOW WHERE HIS FEELINGS CAME FROM.
THERE WAS ONCE A MAN, #3: THERE WAS ONCE A MAN WHO DIDN’T KNOW WHERE HIS BLOOD HAD BEEN.
PARENTS — ADULTS: IT’S 11 PM — DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR HORMONES ARP
…HEY, NOW IT’S MIDNIGHT: HAVE YOU EVER KNOWN?
AND THEN THERE WAS THIS MAN WHO ASKED: “WHAT DOES ANY OF THIS HAVE TO DO WITH MY DESIRE TO BE ENLIGHTENED?”, AND THE QUIZ MASTER REPLIED:
“DID YOU HAVE THIS DESIRE BEFORE YOU WERE ABLE TO SAY THAT YOU DID?”, AND THE CONTESTANT EXPLODED FOR — $32,000.00 AND A TRIP TO TIJUANA
XXX
ACCORDING TO ONE, SEMI-INNOCENT LEGEND: THERE WAS ONCE A TIME WHEN ONLY MEDICAL DOCTORS WERE ALLOWED TO TRY TO AWAKEN….BUT EVEN THAT DIDN’T WORK OUT DUE TO THEIR APPARENT INABILITY TO SUPPLY MAGAZINES THAT PEOPLE ACTUALLY WANTED TO READ.
XXX
WORDS FOUND WRITTEN ON THE WALL OF A DESERTED MONASTERY:
“THE ONLY THING THAT KEPT ME FROM DRIVING MYSELF CRAZY OVER THE FACT THAT
I WAS — MOSTLY ASLEEP
MOST OF MY LIFE
WAS IN MY — THINKING ABOUT IT.”

How ABOUT ANOTHER ROUND OF OUR, “SUPER SONIC, “WHAT-IF”?” GAME: WHAT IF THE UNRECOGNIZED, COMMON MIS-PERCEPTION IN ALL RELIGIONS, PHILOSOPHIES AND MYSTICAL SYSTEMS IS IN THEIR BELIEF THAT WHAT STIRS THEIR INTEREST IS FROM SOME WHERE IN THEIR NERVOUS SYSTEM -THEIR MIND, THEIR CONSCIOUS, OR THEIR SPIRIT,
WHEN IN FACT THE SOURCE IS ELSE WHERE?!
“WHAT IF” THE SOURCE IS IN SOME NON VOCAL PLACE BEYOND MENTAL COMPREHENSION — WHICH WOULD, (VIS A VIS NERVOUS SYSTEM CONSCIOUSNESS),
PUT IT ETERNALLY — “OUT-OF-REACH” —
FOREVER “LOST-TO-THE-MIND” ?!
“WHAT IF”THE NERVOUS SYSTEM AND ITS CONSCIOUSNESS-OF-THE-MIND
ARE THOUGHT AND SAID TO BE THE SOURCE, OF THAT WHICH INTERESTS THE LIKES OF US SOLELY BECAUSE IT IS THE ONLY SYSTEM WHEREIN THOUGHT AND SPEECH ARE POSSIBLE, AND NOT BECAUSE THAT IS WHERE THE URGE TO AWAKEN ACTUALLY ORIGINATES?°
IF THIS “WHAT IF” WERE SO
THEN IT WOULD RENDER THE SITUATION NOT UNLIKE A MAN STUDYING, (LET’S SAY),FRENCH
ONLY BECAUSE IT IS THE ONLY COURSE AVAILABLE — WHEN,
UNBEKNOWNST TO HIM,
IT IS LATIN HE ACTUALLY WISHES TO LEARN.
EARS CAN ONLY HEAR WHAT THE LIPS HAVE TO SAY,
AND FEW MEN EVER REALIZE THAT FOR THE MIND TO SUSTAIN CONSCIOUSNESS
IT HAS BOTH EARS WITH WHICH TO HEAR, AND LIPS WITH WHICH TO SPEAK THAT WHICH WILL BE HEARD.
“WHAT IF”WHAT MEN SUCH AS WE SEEK IN SIDE,OURSELVES
IS IN TRUTH — FOREVER”OUT-OF-REACH-OF-THE-MIND” ?! -ETERNALLY —- “LOST-TO-CONSCIOUSNESS”?!
…WOULD NOT THE REALITY OF THIS, “WHAT IF” SHED ENTIRELY NEW PERCEPTIONAL LIGHT ON THE WHOLE ACTIVITY OF, “AWAKENING, ENLIGHTENMENT AND LIBERATION.”?! (ESPECIALLY THE “LIBERATION” PART,
IF YOU CONSIDER THE KIND OF UNEXPECTED FREEDOM THAT WOULD COME FROM A MAN
CEASING TO ERRONEOUSLY LOOK IN ONE PARTICULAR DIRECTION AS BEING THE
SOURCE OF HIS CAPTIVITY.)
WHEN YOU FINALLY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO “CROSS THE TRACKS” OVER TO ENLIGHTENEDVILLE BE SURE AND: LOOK BOTH WAYS…THEN LOOK AGAIN TO DOUBLE CHECK, AND THEN NEXT TIME — DON’T LOOK IN EITHER DIRECTION — AND THEN’S WHEN
YOU CAN MAKE IT OVER.

HERE’S SOMETHING YOU MIGHT DO:
WHEN YOU AWAKEN EACH MORNING, THINK THIS QUESTION TO YOURSELF:
“WHO OR WHAT IS IT IN ME AT THIS EXACT INSTANT? —
WHO HAVE I AWAKENED — “FEELING LIKE”?
WHO OR WHAT DO I BELIEVE I AM AT THIS VERY MOMENT?,
AND WHAT DIFFERENCE SHOULD IT MAKE TO ME?
SEEING AS HOW I AM ALIVE AGAIN THIS DAY,.AND WILL, WITH NO THOUGHT-BASED-INTENTION REQUIRED,
DO WHAT IS NECESSARY FOR MY SURVIVAL.”
Do IT — ASK OF YOURSELF AND PONDER WHILE STILL UNDER THE BLANKET:
“WHO AM I THIS MORNING?,
AND WHO OR WHAT IS IT IN ME THAT CAN ASK SUCH A QUESTION?”,
AND IF AN ANSWER TO THIS COMES TO YOUR MIND — IGNORE IT! — IT’S INCORRECT…
IT’S AN ILLUSION….IT IS A LIE….IT IS A THOUGHT,
WHEREAS THE REALLY INTERESTING STUFF IS GOING ON UNDER THE COVERS.
OKAY, AND HERE’S SOMETHING YOU CAN DO, NUMBER TWO. (THE ADVANCED VERSION): WHEN YOU AWAKEN EVERY MORNING — DON’T ASK YOURSELF ANYTHING! — JUST, GET UP) AND — 011 WITH IT!
STRUGGLE FOR A “METAPHYSICAL AWAKENING” ON YOUR OWN TIME.
(WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT BE THE TIME THAT IS REGISTERING IN YOUR MIND).
METHODS BY WHICH TO ACHIEVE, AWAKENING MAY BE THIS: SNOOZE BOTTOMS ON YOUR CLOCK RADIO.
…AND DON’T EVER SAY THAT SOMETHING “MAY BE” SO
REGARDING YOUR STUDY OF ENLIGHTENMENT,
FOR WITHOUT A WELL-FOUNDED, BULL-HEADED, DOGMATIC APPROACH,
THE HEAD OF YOUR BULL WILL NEVER HANG ON THE WALL ABOVE YOUR BED.

ONE MAN OFFERS SEVERAL NEW THEORIES AS TO WHAT, “WANTING TO AWAKEN” MAY ACTUALLY BE ABOUT. FIRST THEORY: IT MAY JUST BE THE PITUITARY GLAND SEEKING ATTENTION. THEORY NUMBER Two: IT MAY BE NON-CONSCIOUS BODILY ACTIVITIES TRYING TO REACH A LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS, AND HIS NUMBER THREE: IT MAY BE THE ATTEMPT TO RE-ROUTE CERTAIN BODILY ENERGIES FROM THEIR NATURAL COURSES. (HE NOTES OF COURSE, THAT THESE ARE JUST, “THEORIES”!)
— QUICK! — BACK UNDER THE COVERS !!

ALTHOUGH NOT RECORDED ON AVAILABLE MAPS,
FAR OFF SHORE IS AN ISLAND KNOWN AS) “AWAKE”,
BUT OUT BEYOND IT IS ANOTHER AREA WITH THE SAME NAME WHICH CONSISTS OF A MAGNET ISLAND SURROUNDED BY A NUMBER OF SATELLITE ISLES.
THE WINDS BLOW EVERY WHERE:
THE WAVES ARE ALWAYS PRESENT)
THE SUN STILL GOES UP & DOWN, AND THE NIGHT SKIES TURN ‘ROUND & ‘ROUND,
AND A TRUE MAN-OF-THE-SEA — WHEN CUT ON THE HEAD —
STILL BLEEDS AT THE FOOT.
SALTY MORAL:
BELIEVING YOU POSSESS A GENUINE MAP CAN BE SOMETHING EVEN LESS THAN NO EVIDENCE YOU ARE ACTUALLY ON YOUR WAY SOME WHERE.

IF IT IS THE NERVOUS SYSTEMS’ SENSE—OF—CONSCIOUSNESS THAT GIVES MAN HIS
SENSE OF A “SEPARATENESS”:FROM HIS EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENT, WHICH IN TURN MAKES POSSIBLE._.BOTH HIS ALTERNATION THEREOF, AND HIS INTERNAL REACTIONS THERETO, THUS FROM THIS VIEW:
THE DEEPER AND MORE CONSISTENTLY IS A MAN,”IN—HIS—THOUGHTS”,
THE GREATER WILL SEEM HIS SEPARATENESS FROM THE EXTERNAL WORLD, AND„,•
THE GREATER WILL BE HIS DEGREE OF,—”NORMALCY—OF—CONSCIOUSNESS”.
THUS, “THINKING” IS-BOTH MAN’S PREMIER ASSET, WHILE TO A FEW, IN ITS PEDESTRIAN MANIFEST ION — IT IS A BANE.
XXX
THE STRUGGLE TO ACHIEVE THIS THING, “ENLIGHTENMENT, LIBERATION, AWAKENING” ETC, IS A LONG STRING OF,ATTEMPTED REFUSALS,70,SUBMIT, TO CERTAIN NATURAL, INTERNAL PROGRAMMING.

 THOSE WHO EMBRACE THE IDEA OF “PREDESTINATION” DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT’S GOING ON, AND THOSE WHO DISMISS IT
DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT I JUST SAID.
