Right or wrong relation?

She:
I have been quiet lately as I’ve been attempting to break off the relationship with the inappropriate partner.

I am hoping to catch up on blog reading soon! I enjoy your thoughts and ponderings enormously. A healthy life should always allow room for questions.

Is “thinking” the outcome of experience, or is that “reason”? (Or, even “emotion”?) …I believe “thinking” to be a far more abstract process beyond the known. Reason would find it difficult to understand transcendence as it is trying to base outcomes on “totalised” and averaged past experiences, no? While thought allows for scenarios not yet experienced to be included in the process?

Me:

The question is whether you are attempting to, or really breaking off this “relation”.

You´re the one to honestly establish this.

Indeed so: A healthy life should always allow room for questions…- but not less important, it should allow a due space for true and meaningful answers too…

Verily, Thinking is the outcome of past experience, the constant reinforcing the old patterns – that is, the Known Patterns.

Perfectly put: Reason would find it difficult to understand transcendence as it is trying to base outcomes on totalised and averaged past experiences.

We could speculate for ever what being from thought is; what transcendence is…How can we ever know, i.e, have a direct experience of it, while attempting to “seize” it with our blunt perception of all yesterdays?

We can only know it, if we manage to “appropriate” the inhumanly difficult task of emptying the mind.

Emptying the mind meaning renewal. Renewal, which implies the courage to die to all past experience.

I say “inhumanly difficult task” as most humans will never escape the mundane “I-experience”, and will rather prefer to remain stuck forever in the narrow limits of suffering and agony, than taking the step out of falseness.

There is a strong element of perversity in human nature, which is hard to fathom. People would rather “choose” to attract appalling disease and even physical death, than having the courage to change.

There is something though, which can be termed as “right mind”. Right measure. Right relation. Right emotion.

This “right mind” is mind-lessness – the death of thought. The death of “me-emotion”.

It is no longer the presence of an absence – ego -, but Presence itself, which is indefinable Simplicity.

Call it Transcendence, Suchness, unfathomable Mystery.

This Mystery – Life – to Man, is naught but a pure abstraction, as long as man relates with and is caught in the projection of his crazed separate ego.

That being said, can we see it that this inappropriate partner is the false self within us, and that the vicious relation to it, brings nothing but misery and wretchedness?

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

  1. I would agree indeed that emptying the mind is likely inhumanly possible. Even if it were, is one even sure achieving it would mean anything better? Not like anyone has ever really accomplished it, is there?
