The man or woman who wants to go deeper will then believe his or her peer’s conclusions, take them as truth and get on with a normal lifetime, or strike out on their own and see if they could discover a individual, philosophy, or religion that is more in tune with their innermost feelings. They need more; having fun and more than making money.
The fact is; we can not always see it, although the fact is all around us very close actually. The fact is very ordinary, since the truth is about ourselves. But the actual seeing of the truth, seeing what we’re – because the mind must be for calm and still the facts about ourselves, that is extraordinary. You see, the self or ego taints what we see and experience all the time, no matter what it sees, also this type of mind will remain. On the other hand, a clear, calm mind will permeate everything and realize the reality of life.
Though we involve ourselves it is the actual seeing the fact of matters that is in the root of spiritual searching. Lectures, research, clinics all may help to direct one from the direction of direct viewing, but the danger here is if one believes that practices, novels and talks can do it. Talks, novels, and clinics are confined to surface consciousness – thought, memory, emotions, etc. – that is not direct viewing. Direct seeing happens beyond consciousness; it’s that infinitesimal split second when something strikes the mind like it came from left field, it’s when the mind realizes something really heavy for the first time,it is that moment of truth once the light bulb goes away and you say to yourself,”Oh my!”
We must look no farther than that six or five feet of body that we are in. It’s more fun to read books and do practices, and these can help still your mind so that you can actually look over your body calmly and without bias, but it’s the looking and evaluation with a definite insightful brain that counts in the long run. Unless you can penetrate into your possession of it and the delusion of the human body, the world will continue to be the puppeteer which can be your attachments, and also the number one attachment is the body and mind a course in miracles.
Because our bodies are a bag of salt water, which conducts electricity quite 27, the reason that we are so vulnerable to lightning is! Our bodies are made from the earth’s parts, and when it expires, it will melt in the earth. We are the earth, rather than something special living upon it.
Then there is the brain, that which places all of its psychological and physical inputs collectively; psychological inputs like when our eyes, ears, nose, tongue, mind contacts a sense object and records it, then mind will either be neutral to the object, reject the object by pushing away it which lead to emotions of anger, hatred, etc., or even adopt the object by simply attaching to it and thinking of methods to own it, which result in feelings of love, avarice, lust, jealousy, anger, and hatred, etc..
And out of all these psychological inputs, such as memory and discursive arises our notion of a self. It sounds more than just a body and mind, it becomes a body which we must protect, and also our character that we have to defend. That is our continuous burden of stress, and no matter how appealing our religions depict the next world, with no direct insight into what the body and brain is now, we’ll never possess the liberty to let go of them, and instead be caught up in an endless web of fear and uncertainty.
One will see their world as unchanging from what it is now if it is going to go on forever, and think about any strain in their lives as temporary, just until they get things straightened out. They will also insist that mind and this body is theirs, that they a re behind everything as an individual soul of some kind that’s indestructible.
