What is the immediate perception freed from all ideas?…

Mirrors of Encounters

If we are caught in ideas, that will bring us nowhere.

Only when the Mind is free from any content – can it experience something directly, without postponment…

The New is awareness with no name. It necessitates the courage of letting go of the known – that is, of name and current ideas you have about life…It is about inquiring beyond the old thought patterns.

The cessation of pursuit outwardly is reasonably easy. The hard part is the cessation of pursuit inwardly – so to say, to “arrest” thinking…We have to follow the process step by step in greatest attention…I am sure you are acquainted with the unending inner chatter in your head. That cannot be stopped by a deliberate act, because that “authority” trying to put an end to a thought, is, another thought. Hope you see what I mean, because it is either very easy or utterly complicated…

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.

    I do see what you mean and I do get it.
    Sometimes things are so easy, they are hard. We tend to complicate things and even get in our own way at times.

    I am finding that I lack words for the ‘new normal’.

    It helped me, to understand, that the brain cannot tell us how something ‘is going to happen’.
    The brain can only tell us how something ‘has happened’.
    Great post!
    Thank you, ren

      Of course you lack words for the “new normal”. We have no words for that…as yet…;)

      The brain cannot make a proper anticipation of anything, as it is the depository of all yesterdays. Meaning that all its answers are biased, being conditioned by the immemorial human experience with all its burdens and inefficacy. That´s why we complicate things unceasingly, cause we equate life with struggle, effort and resistance,,,

      The brain – as you say – can only tell us how something ‘has happened’. It´s hardly a trustworthy adviser, as the “New” is not contained in its vocabulary…
