Can we ever win over Mind?

Whatever is fragmented is at loss.Trying to win over the mind therefore turns you inevitably into a loser. Because mind itself is the outcome of a loss. Of fragmentation. Ultimately of a conflict.

So the only gain to be derived out of this is therefore the lucid understanding of this blatant fact:

Mind, being spawned by fear, has to dissolve in order for Reality – which is Wholeness – to arise…

Everything is contained in the perfectly wholesome gesture

Nothing is overlooked.

Nothing is left out.

We have to give up the false assumption that Life is Separateness

Life is never one-sided.

But our thought is. Likewise our perception of ourselves and everything around us.
That´s the main problem of thinking basically: I choose “this”, on the expense of “that”.

We can´t imagine that a thing is both “this and that”…

Our choice is uncritically taken as the only valid assumption. Meaning that we inertially take our deliberate option as “The Thing”. It is clear that whatever we observe is biased by our ingrained one-sidedness.

Either you are a scientist, or a poet. To be a poet and a scientist doesn´t make you a reliable professional.

If I as a musician paint, compose or write and have scientific interests besides, turns me automatically into a suspicious character.

Stupidity consists of many things, but in this context, stupidity is always one-sided.

In fact, the beginning of stupidity is to be found in the shameless presumption of “either-or”. Either down or up. Stay or go. Christian or Buddhist. The list can continue interminably…

Truth of the matter is that we are irrevocably stuck in either-or and neither-nor.
In vapid concepts. Language too, may be our curse.

Most assuredly, an apple is not a pear, of course, a man is not a woman.

The problem is that thinking suspends the Natural Unity of Life – it sees the apple totally separated from the pear, the child from the “grown-up”, the woman from man.

With other words, another insidious side of stupidity is to be stuck in category-thinking. Further on – and this is the most scary characteristic for most people:

STUPIDITY SEES NO RELATION BETWEEN THINGS.

This falling short of seeing things in intrinsic relation is appalling. It is actually our doom.

SEEING THINGS DISTINCTIVELY SEPARATED IS PURE INSANITY.

We are supposed to mount but not descend, win and never lose, act obsessively without relaxing, go away but never come back.

The worst outcome of this delirious misconception is Progress – as in economic growth.

Growth can also mean tumor. Isn´it obvious? – We have totally bought ourselves into maintaining and fueling disease. Everybody with common sense sees the relation between economic growth and sickness – growth as a rampant bloating of fragmentation and disunity.

“Day-living” is our only zany answer. Night – as a metaphor for Mystery and Unknowing, the zone where our definitions are invalid – scares us. Too spooky. Too uncontrollable. 

This stupid idea of separateness has turned our life into an unbearable and absurd wasteland. In the absence of the Ineffable – the Wholeness of Being – and due to becoming explicitly rational, human relations have been ruined: man has become woman´s worst foe, and woman man´s worst nightmare.

Not being able to relax and come back to themselves, people live in total agony. Not being IN RELATION to anything, they cut themselves off from any reasonable living.

Lonely wretched strangers going nowhere.

To conclude.

Everything falls back to a wrong perception of Life.

Namely, THE ONE-SIDEDNESS OF THOUGHT, which breeds Separation, Fragmentation and Lack of Relation.

Fragmentation is the sickness of the Soul.

The enormously stupid and baleful assumption that Life is Separation is our death sentence.

There is not much of an option. We have to renounce this disastrous delusion and heal, embracing Wholeness.

Everything is in vivid relation to everything.

What is I-ness and identity?

The hardest thing to grasp that our culture never speaks about is this:

The sense of  “I”, our very identity is intrinsically fragmentation. What is fragmented – namely our I-ness – is, and leads invariably to struggle, conflict, resistance.

What is fragmented struggles actually to wholeness – wholeness is in fact the goal for all our human endeavours, the “final” destination for al our strife and aspirations.

All manifest existence, us included, strives back to One, to wholeness, that´s the hardest paradox to fathom.

If we look without prejudice, everything we know is basically the outcome of our sense of identity. Identity trying to defend, preserve and commit itself, identity trying hard to thrive, through struggle, conflict, friction. What else can we find at the end of this road other than suffering?

What is identity? What is at the root of our very Identity…? Fear. Fear in all its infinite variations. Fear of being or not being, fear of not succeeding, fear of not reaching the Ideal, fear of this or that. To cut it short, Ego is separation, ego is fear, ego assumes an identity built on fear. At the root of every hardship, idiosyncrasy and disease is Ego.

If we manage to understand the nature of the ego – separation – we come to understand fear.

Ego being fear, whatever it undertakes is bound to fail.

Ego goes from illusion to illusion, from failure to another failure. EGO CANNOT WIN – even when it “succeeds” it is failing nevertheless.

EGO IS ABSENCE. Absence struggling hard to attain Presence, or Wholeness.

Fragmentation can never grasp wholeness! Suffering can never grasp joy or peace. Suffering is isolation, and the only way of coming out of separation and isolation is going through the illusory nature of the ego, letting go of the false idea of identity.

Once you let go, you realize that existence lives you swiftly and seamlessly. Once you feel the joy of being one with existence, you are whole and don´t need to aspire, instead you act joyously. Letting go of Ego is like travelling from Absence to Presence.

Presence can never fail!

Presence is discernment, the death of illusion and self-delusion.

Presence is Wholeness, presence is totality second by second. Homecoming!

No intellectual questioning

Knowledge and experience is a big trap, as Wholeness can not be perceived linearly. A single letter… a glance…a sigh,
the vivid gesture, can capture something that experience can never apprehend or perceive.
