Thinking is a diversion or interference momentarily of Life’s energy flowing in the nervous system. Awakening = allowing energy to flow unhindered; relief from thought.


The News

94118-1
AND NOW THE NEWS:
ONE MAN COULDN’T READ WITHOUT HIS GLASSES — SO HE THREW AWAY HIS GLASSES. HE’S NOW TURNED HIS ATTENTION TO THE USELESSNESS OF WHAT HIS MIND’S GENERALLY INVOLVED WITH.
EVEN AFTER HE DIED, ONE MAN STILL WOULDN’T LET THEM WRITE HIS BIOGRAPHY.
Do YOU REALIZE THE POTENTIAL SIGNIFICANCE IF THESE TWO ITEMS ARE RELATED!?
AFTER SEEING THE BOOK TITLE: “THE TRANSMISSION OF THE MIND”,
ONE MAN TOOK HIS OUT OF GEAR, AND DECIDED NEVER TO HAVE IT REBUILT AGAIN.
IF ALL OF THIS IS SOMEHOW CONNECTED, DO YOU PERCEIVE THE IMPLICATIONS!?
MAY FEAR, JOY & ENLIGHTENMENT FALL UPON US. *

MISPLACEMENT
LOOKING AROUND THE BUSY PASTURE
HE BELIEVED HE’D LOST THE MAGIC STALLION, BUT HE HAD NOT —
HE’D LOST HIMSELF AGAIN.
94118-3
ONE MAN DECIDED TO TAKE HIS. MIND ON AS A STUDENT,
BUT AFTER SOME TIME, TOLD IT:
“LOOK, JUST BECAUSE YOU ASK ME ABOUT SOME PARTICULAR SUBJECT DOESN’T MEAN THAT IT ACTUALLY DESERVES ANY COMMENT.
DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME?”,
AND HIS MIND LOOKED AT HIM WITH THE KIND OF DISBELIEF ONE WOULD AN INTELLIGENT-PUBLIC FIGURE.
* * *
SOCIAL TIP REGARDING MENTAL MATTERS
NEVER ASSOCIATE WITH ANYONE WHOSE NAME IS A PROPER NOUN.
* * *
94118-4
LIFE GENERALLY WANTS MAN TO BE RELIGIOUS, RATHER THAN MYSTICAL,
IN THAT THE FORMER BEARS MORE ON CONTROLLING BEHAVIOR THAN THOUGHT — WHICH IS. LIFE’S IMMEDIATE CONCERN REGARDING “HOMO UNPREDICTABUS”,
94118-5
OUR PROVERB FOR THE DAY,
HE WHO WRESTLES WITH THOUGHT — LOSETH,
ONLY THOSE-WHO-KNOW, KNOW FOR SURE,
AND IF YOU ASK THEM TO TELL YOU WHAT IT IS,
THEY WILL IN TRUTH TELL YOU THAT THEY CANNOT TELL YOU.
ISN’T IT NICE TO KNOW THAT SOME THINGS ARE “FOR SURE”!?
94118-7
As HE WAS MAKING A DETOUR FROM THE MAIN ROAD A MAN SUDDENLY THOUGHT: “IF NOT ILL — A MAN IS TROUBLED ONLY BY THE MIND!”,
As SIMPLE AS IT MAY SOUND,
HE FOUND THIS TO BE A GREAT PERSONAL DISCOVERY….AND SAID SO….RIGHT THERE…. ….TO HIMSELF.
94118-8
ENERGY AND ELECTRICITY
MAN IS A WALL OUTLET,
MAN IS A WALL, MAN IS ENERGY,
AND WITHOUT WORDS, THE AWAKENED KNOW.
* * *
ONE MAN SAID: “I MAY BE THE STUPIDEST OF ALL MEN, BUT AT LEAST I WON’T ADMIT IT.
94118-9
OKAY – UP-THE-STAKES TIME: To OPPOSE LIFE IS TO ACCEPT LIFE.
94118-10
ONE GUY WAS A SMART-ASS — UNTIL HIS BEST FRIEND DIED,
AFTER HEARING THIS, SEVERAL PEOPLE ASKED IF HIS BEST FRIEND HAD :BEEN HIS MIND
HE DIDN’T ANSWER THEM — BUT SAID HE WOULD HAVE
IF THEY HAD ASKED IF HE HAD THOUGHT HIS BEST FRIEND HAD BEEN HIS MIND,
(HE LATER SAID THAT THEY’D “MISSED THE POINT”, ALTHOUGH THEY’D RAISED AN INTERESTING NEW ONE,)
94118-11
THE ORIGINAL “VERBAL CURSE”: THE NAMING OF THINGS.
94118-12
AFTER HEARING IT SAID THAT: “ALL ROADS LEAD TO CHINA”,
A LAD ASKED HIS FATHER: “JUST HOW MANY PATHS ARE THERE TO ENLIGHTENMENT?”, AND THE OLDER ONE REPLIED: “How MANY GRAINS OF SAND MAKE UP DESERT? — AND, How CAN THE TWO BE SEPARATED?!”
94118-13
WHEN HE CONSIDERED WHAT HIS MIND NORMALLY WAS INVOLVED WITH, ONE MAN THOUGHT: “WHAT A WASTE OF TIME.”,
AND LIFE SAID: “You GOT ANY BETTER IDEAS?”,
AND HE REPLIED:”I MIGHT.

ON SATURDAY AFTERNOONS
WHEN THEY WANTED TO “HAVE A LITTLE FUN” AND GET IN SOME GOOD ROCK THROWIN’, THE MONKS AT THIS ONE MYSTICAL SCHOOL
WOULD GO OUT ON THE BALL FIELD AND PLAY:
“LET HE WHO IS AGAIN WITHOUT PERFECTION CAST THE FIRST & ALL FOLLOW-UP STONES.”
94118-14
THE AWARENESS OF THE AWAKENED IS LIKE THE SPONTANEOUSLY EXECUTED, AND COMPLETED WORK OF A TRUE ARTIST,
AND NOT THE TENTATIVE, PREPARATORY SKETCHES OF AN AMATEUR, LIABLE TO LATER CORRECTIONS AND ADDITIONS.
94118-15
THE SPEAKER SAID: “LET US NOW QUOTE GREAT MEN.”)
AND SOMEONE RESPONDED: “WHO ELSE WOULD WE QUOTE!?”,
AND A THIRD VOICE JOINED IN: “WE COULD QUOTE THOSE EVEN GREATER STILL -THOSE ABOUT WHOM WE CAN SAY NOTHING.”
94118-16
THE DESIRE OF DISCOVERY
IN THE BEGINNING
EVERYONE LOOKS FOR FOOT PRINTS, BUT FOOT PRINTS ARE THOUGHTS -AND THOUGHTS WILL BUT MISLEAD.
* * *
You CAN’T HIDE A DEAD HORSE IN A PERFUME SHOP, BUT YOU CAN — IN A MAN’S MIND.

MEN GOT THE IDEA FOR UNBUTTERED POPCORN & CORN FLAKES WITHOUT MILK AFTER READING SCHOLARLY EXPLANATIONS OF MYSTICISM,
94118-18
LOOKING IN THE MIRROR,
THEN AT HIS WATCH,
THEN AT THE SCHEDULE AND THE WIND,
To HIMSELF THE MAN SAID:
“I AM NOW MOST CONCERNED OVER WHETHER I AM NOW HERE OR NOT.”
94118-19
To THE ALERT —
THE THING DESCRIBED IS ALWAYS OF GREATER VALUE THAN ITS DESCRIPTION — AWARENESS ALWAYS SUPERIOR TO THOUGHT,
IF YOU MUST EXPLAIN WHY YOU PURSUE YOUR PARTICULAR ART) You YOURSELF KNOW NOT,
ANOTHER ADVANTAGE OF THE MYSTICALLY-DRIVEN IS THAT NOT ONLY DO THEY HAVE NO UNCERTAINTY,
BUT NO CHOICE, AS WELL.
94118-21
You CAN UPSET PEOPLE ACCIDENTALLY, OR YOU CAN UPSET THEM INTENTIONALLY, BUT IN EITHER CASE,
(IF THEY’RE ORDINARY PEOPLE),
IT’S A WASTE OF EFFORT,
94118-22
MAN SAYS: “TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE”,
BUT THIS IS BECAUSE TIME IS NOT GOING ANY WHERE -MAN CREATED TIME
SHORTLY AFTER DEATH CREATED HIM.
94118-23
THE REASON THAT ARGUMENT & DEBATE ARE SO UNPROFITABLE FOR THE FEW IS THAT
TO “DISAGREE” WITH SOMETHING IS TO AGREE THAT IT IS EVEN WORTHY OF ATTENTION.
94118-24
THOUGHT-MENTED CONSCIOUSNESS: KITE STRINGS AND TAILS, TIED TO PASSING CLOUDS.
94118-25
THE PROGRESSION
THE SEARCH
THE SIGHTING
THE CHASE
THE SUCCESS
THE NEW PROGRESSION
94118-2f
WHEN ASKED WHAT HE WAS TEACHING, THE MYSTIC SAID: “IF YOU HEAR WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE — THAT’S NOT IT.”
94118-27
ONCE THE MIND IS BUT A “SHADOW-OF-ITS-FORMER-SELF”, THEN CONSCIOUSNESS – AND YOU – CAN BE SOME ONE NEW.
94118-28
THE AWAKENING IS LIKE CLIMBING A GREASED POLE IN A HURRICANE,
No, I’LL GIVE YOU A BETTER VERSION STILL:
IT IS LIKE LETTING A GREASED POLE BE, AMIDST A HURRICANE.
94118-29
THOSE WHO KNOW-WHAT’S-GOING-ON
EITHER: (1): HAVE A LOT ON THEIR MIND, OR: (2): NOTHING,
