Summary

#1351 – 10/21/1994
Notes by TK

(***) The two and three formula subsumes the I + Not-I = Everything equation. It means binary forces drive man’s perception in a 3-d context. The ability/necessity of the mind to make/see distinctions within reality in order to think. Everything is absolutely fungible and the mind can’t operate on that basis. But in the mind’s operation there is an overlap between distinctions wherein resides all possibility of conflict, of hostility resulting from ambiguity…not survival conflicts.

A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO HAD BEEN ATTEMPTING TO REACH A NEW LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS ONE DAY MET WITH A MAN WHO TOLD THEM THE FOLLOWING:
“THERE ARE TWO BUDDHAS: THE SMALL BUDDHA AND THE LARGE BUDDHA;
THE SMALL BUDDHA IS THE EFFORT TO AWAKEN,
AND THE LARGE ONE IS THE SUCCESS OF THE EFFORT,
AND THE LARGE ONE IS SO LARGE THAT
No ONE EVER SEES IT.”,
AND AS THE PEOPLE PONDERED THIS IDEA, ONE OF THEM ASKED THE MAN:
“BUT WHY ARE YOU TELLING US THIS!? — AREN’T YOU A SUFI!?”,
AND THE MAN REPLIED: “CLOSE, I’M A CHRISTIAN MYSTIC,
BUT SO SMALL A ONE AS TO BE NEAR-INVISIBLE.”,
AND THROUGH THAT REMARK, SOME OF THOSE PRESENT GAINED THE PROPER REALIZATION OF HIS ORIGINAL COMMENT.
THERE WAS ONCE A MAN WHO LIVED ‘AMONG OTHERS, TOO LONG -HE LIVED AMIDST THE ROUTINE, TOO LONG,
HE LIVED WITH THE ACCEPTABLE, AND RESPECTABLE, FAR TOO LONG, FOR YOU SEE,
HE WAS A MAN OF THE FUTURE — A MAN WHO WOULD SOME DAY HAVE NO NAME, OR IDENTIFYING LABEL,
JUST AS IS WITH A CONSCIOUSNESS THAT IS NO LONGER MERELY A PART OF THE COLLECTIVE’S.

THE SPEAKER SO ADDRESSED THE AUDIENCE:
“ONCE A PART OF REALITY HAS BEEN ‘NAMED’ — IT HAS BEEN CRIPPLED.”, AND SOMEONE IN THE CROWD RESPONDED:

“YOU CAN GET THE SALT OUT OF WATER,
THE DOUBT OUT OF FEAR,
EVEN THE STINK OUT OF SHIT,
BUT THE ONE THING YOU CANNOT Do IS GET THE STUPID OUT OF STUPID.”
A WOODSMAN, (FROM ANOTHER DISTRICT), WHO HAPPENED TO BE PASSING BY, JUST KEPT GOING.
