Summary

#1425 – 4/19/95: (?) If a man’s spiritual dream could come true, the reality of it would be unusable. E.g., getting a Ferrari car which you can’t afford to operate. Individual mind/collective mind, c.f., a baby opossum and mamma opossum.

THERE ARE THREE MINDS POSSIBLE FOR MAN, (WITH THE FIRST TWO OVER-LAPPING): THE FIRST MIND IS “STUPID MIND” WHICH IS ONE-EYED, HALF-BRAINED, ARGUMENTATIVE, AND THE FAVORITE OF THOSE AT THE FRINGE OF CONTEMPORARY TIMES; THE SECOND IS “ORDINARY MIND” WHICH COVERS THE AREA FROM BASIC SOPHISTICATION To SOCIETY’S REVERED THINKERS;
THE THIRD MIND POSSIBLE IS THAT OF THE LIBERATED ONE —
THE MIND FULLY FREED FROM THE CONFINES OF THE FIRST TWO

A MAN ASKED A MYSTIC:
“DOES BEING ENLIGHTENED ENTAIL BEING FREED FROM CRITICISM?”,

SO THE MAN ASKED:
“THEN DOES BEING ENLIGHTENED ALSO MEAN BEING FREE FROM ANGER?”,
AND THE MYSTIC SAID: “YES, BUT MORE THAN THAT TOO.”,
AND THE MAN THOUGHT FOR A SECOND, THEN SAID:
“SO DOES IT MEAN BEING FREE FROM EVEN THINKING ABOUT SUCH THINGS!?”,
AND THE MYSTIC SMILED.

(IN CASE ANYONE’S INTERESTED):
THE ONE WAY FOR SURE YOU COULD TELL THAT YOU’D FOUND A “BIG TIME”
MYSTICAL SCHOOL WOULD BE THAT IT NEVER MAKES ANY REFERENCE TO THOSE THEREIN. …OF COURSE IF YOU FOUND A BIG TIME MYSTIC HIMSELF,
HE’D BE OF THE SAME BENT.

A MAN PONDERED ON ONE OF THE MATTERS I PROPOSED:
“WHAT IF,
INSTEAD OF ME BELIEVING I SIT ON THE PORCH WATCHING TRAFFIC GO BY,
I SHIFTED MY AWARENESS IN SUCH A WAY THAT I MERGED WITH THE TRAFFIC!?”
“PAPA, IS THAT WHY THE AWAKENED NEVER SEEM TO HEAR THE HORNS BLOWING!?” “‘TIS TRUE, MY SON, WHAT DISTURBANCE DOES THE CENTER OF A CYCLONE SENSE!?”

AND A VOICE FROM THE CROWD SAID:
“NOT THAT AGAIN! — YOU’VE ALREADY DONE THAT A THOUSAND TIMES! –

IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT ALL ILLUSION AND IGNORANCE ARISES FROM
FALSE INTERPRETATIONS OF LIFE,
BUT MIGHT I UPDATE THAT FOR YOU AND HAVE IT READ THAT:

YOU SEE,
ALL OF THAT IS THE PROPER REALM OF “REALITY-BASED-MIND”,
AND NOT OF LIBERATED CONSCIOUSNESS,

95043-15.
ONE MAN FINALLY ASKED HIMSELF:
“IN THIS EFFORT,
