About memory, practice and repetition

Is something that we do so well not an act from memory developed through repetition? One doesn’t use memory conspicuously at times but it is implied that if you do something well then you learned it from practice and isn’t practice something stored in memory for use later?

Good question:
“Is something that we do so well not an act from memory developed through repetition?”
Memory, repetition and practice…Let us try to give it a thought and find out together what´s what.

That´s for sure, without me being able to write and speak English properly, I couldn´t write here. For the record, I am not sure always as to my appropriate usage of the language. However, quite evidently, it has taken me years of reading and pondering to be able to expose an idea reasonably well.

The same applies to piano playing or painting, or whatever other…

Marriage is the safe place where the partners committedly prevent each other from growing, actively and painstakingly helping each other stagnate and decisively fail.

Be with it in this moment

It has taken me a lifetime to get this.

As long as you live in division – that is, in the gap between you now and what you want to achieve in “the future” – whatever “ideal” you strive for, will inevitably enhance your fear and turn out to be another painful disillusionment.

You simply can´t miss the target, if you instead, are already one with, and vibrationally exert in this moment whatever you are looking for.

Thanks for your post here. It means a lot to me …. making progress in non-thinking.

All those comments are like lights from different perspectives to the whole “thing”. Quite a lot of what is said is logically contradictory and that confuses us. We’ve been taught throughout our life that contradictory statements are nonsense. What if they are not?

Think about that for a few moments.

Either I get completely nuts right now or I begin to understand.

Me:

Thus – although I get what you say – there cannot be any “progress in non-thinking” – thought must stop, if we are to get a clear picture of the ongoing reality.

You say that “quite a…

If I say “Life is now”, you will most admittedly think that you know what I mean.

Obviously, this truth has been said million times. The question is:

DO YOU REALLY FEEL THAT LIFE IS NOW?

It is very tricky: we mostly THINK we know, we take our thoughts for knowledge, but TRUE KNOWLEDGE – which is Life-knowledge – can never be reached by thought.

This is a platitude what I am saying, but Life is not a thought, as little as a Tree or a Cat is a name. Thought is memory and OUR MEMORY DISTORTS REALITY – we get stuck in names, in definitions, our ideas are the product of our past.  Consequently, it is these ideas of ours which condition and corrupt our reality. This corrupted reality we call Knowledge.
