One man pondered; “Is there in fact a ‘Song Of Awakening,’ one, if which I sang, would produce awakening?”
And a voice from somewhere answered him: “Yes, providing you DIDN”T sing it.”
(“You see, said another voice, “Right there’s the PROBLEM with all of this!” Touché, touché! Touchy and – touché.)
Once he has turned the ideas of “awakening” around in his mind, to a degree sufficient for him, the worst thing such a man can do after that is to – think about his life.
If there is no immediate problem that has a possible physical solution, there is no reason for a man seeking the goal to ever be thinking about his life.
You live your mundane, moment-to-moment, uneventful life by feelings, with nothing there about for an awakened man to think about.
When you start, you’re confused and un-enlightened; then you become enlightened and un-confused. But the Big Game is to be neither confused nor enlightened. (Those who accomplish that are the unknown Hall-of-Famers.)
