TRYING TO CONQUER WHAT ANNOYS YOU ABOUT YOUR MIND WITH YOUR MIND
ONLY INCREASES THE ANNOYANCE.
TO THE MIND, EVERYTHING IT ENTERTAINS IS THE SAME,
THUS IT WILL TAKE ON THE JOB OF SUBDUING ITSELF NO DIFFERENTLY THANT IT DOES
ANYTHING ELSE THAT PASSES ITS WAY:
IT SIMPLY MAKES THIS NEW TASK A PART OF ITS NORMAL REPERTOIRE,
AND GOES ON ABOUT ITS BUSINESS AS USUAL.
YOU REMEMBER THE CLICHE: “YOU CAN’T GET THERE FROM HERE.” WHICH IN THIS CASE
IS BECAUSE THE MERE ACT OF TRYING REINFORCES THE ILLUSION OF THERE BEING A “HERE’
AND A SEPARATE “THERE”, AND STRENGTHENS THE CLOUD IT CASTS ON YOUR VISION.

A RIVER RUNS THRU EVERYONE’S HEAD, AND THE WAY YOU KNOW IT’S THERE IS THAT THERE
ALSO SEEMS TO BE A BANK UPON WHICH YOU CAN MOMENTARILY CLIMB, (AND IF YOU’RE QUID
CATCH A FLEETING IMAGE OF THE FLOW.
SOME SAY THE RIVER IS AN ILLUSION — OTHERS SAY THE BANK IS IMAGINARY, AND ANYTHING YOU SEE THEREFROM IS PER FORCE, IMAGINARY ALSO
…”OH, IT ALL GET’S SO-0-0 CONFUSING!” ….AND A SONG WAS HEARD:
“SINK OR SWIM, SINK OR SWIM — IT’S ME OR HIM, ME OR HIM:
OH-H-H, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO!
BOO HOO, BOO HOO — UNCERTAINTY ROCKS !!”

IF YOU CANNOT YET “SEE CLEARLY”, THEN WHAT YOU “KNOW” SIMPLY CONFUSES YOU -,,,AND THE MORE YOU KNOW, THE MORE CONFUSED YOU BECOME.
WITH “CORRECTED”, (THAT IS: NON-DOUBLE) VISION, YOU SEE & KNOW NOTHING —
YOU ARE THEN BEYOND ENLIGHTENED, AND PAST THE MISTAKEN BELIEF THAT THERE IS:
“ANYTHING TO SEE OR ANYTHING TO KNOW,”
“NOTHING TO KNOW, NOTHING TO SEE — NO “HERE” AND NO “THERE”,
NOW YOU’RE HOME FREE.”
-‘NOTHING” – RULES !! –

A MAN WENT EXPLORING IN AN UNKNOWN CAVE, AND FOR A WHILE, THE DEEPER IN HE WENT, THE MORE HE SEEMED TO LEARN ABOUT THE CAVE…BUT HE EVENTUALLY REALIZE:, THAT, EVEN AFTER MANY YEARS OF EXPLORING, HE REALLY DIDN’T KNOW ANY MORE ABOUT THE PLACE
THEN HE DID WHEN HE STARTED, SOME MIGHT SAY: “WHAT A STRANGE CAVE.”, OR MAYBE
“WHAT A STRANGE MAN.”, BUT EITHER VIEW WILL DO SINCE THEY TURNED OUT TO BE
INTERCHANGEABLE. “HERE I GO IN, HERE I COVE OUT — ALWAYS PRETENDING THAT
I’M JUST ABOUT – TO: REALIZE WHAT MY INNER EXISTENCE AMOUNTS TO. DAMMIT!, ALWAYS
:CONT): IN THE LAND CALLED, “KNOWING” – WHEN THERE IS NOTHING TO KNOW, ONLY THE SUPER SHARP WILL CATCH ON.
“I USED TO LIVE WHERE KNOWLEDGE WAS KING, WHERE KNOWLEDGE WAS KING, WHERE KNOWLEDGE WAS KING — OH,
I USED TO LIVE WHERE KNOWLEDGE WAS KING — BUT THEN I MOVED.
..,.NO, I HAVE NO FORWARDING ADDRESS,
WHY WOULD I WANT WHAT I LEFT TO FIND ME?!”

RELATED RULE & TIP: THE MEMORY OF THE MIND CANNOT BE DEPENDED ON TO ADEQUATELY FORGET.
…(AND A REMINDER: BELIEVING THAT YOU BOARDED THIS TRAIN AT SOME “PARTICULAR PLACE
SERVES ONLY TO CONFUSE YOU AND WILL KEEP YOU FROM DISEMBARKING.
NO ONE “GETS” WHERE THEY ARE FROM – ANY WHERE —
A”CLOSED SYSTEM” IS JUST WHAT IT SAYS IT IS,
AND NOTHING IS MORE SO THAN HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS.
YOU’LL FIGURE OUT HOW YOU “GOT LIKE YOU ARE”
TWO DAYS AFTER THE UNIVERSE STANDS ON ITS OWN SHOULDERS, AND ITS MOTHER THROWS IT A BIRTHDAY PARTY.
,..(AND EVEN THOUGH THERE IS NOTHING TO “KNOW” — STILL, A PERSON WITH ANY SMARTS WILL AT LEAST “KNOW”
NOT TO KEEP ATTEMPTING THE PATENTLY IMPOSSIBLE, WOULDN’T THEY??

THE VOLUME KNOB OF A RADIO & SOME STATIC WALKED INTO A POLICE STATION TO REPORT “MISSING PERSON”, BUT WHEN THE DESK SERGEANT WAS READY TO FILL OUT THE NECESSARY FORM, THEY COULDN’T AGREE BETWEEN THEMSELVES WHAT THE ABSENT PARTY LOOKED LIKE …SINCE, (AS IT TURNS OUT), NEITHER OF THEM HAD ACTUALLY EVER SEEN HIM !! WELL!, THE SERGEANT HAD TO TAKE A MOMENT TO CONSIDER THIS,
AND AFTER A BIT OF HEAD SCRATCHIN’ & LIP CHEWIN’, HE SAID TO THEM:
“WELL IF YOU’VE NEVER ACTUALLY SEEN THE PARTY, HOW THE HELL DO YOU KNOW THAT THEY’RE MISSING?!”, TO WHICH STATIC REPLIED: “WELL YOU DON’T HAVE TO SHOUT.” (A MAN WHO”D BEEN AT THE STATION: [SERVICING THE COFFEE MACH INES].SAID LATER THAT HE STRONGLY SUSPECTED THAT THIS STORY WAS REALLY ABOUT SOMETHING OTHER THAN
WHAT IT SEEMED TO BE, AN OBSERVATION I GUESS WE COULD CHALK LIP TO,
“TOO MUCH CAFFEINE” ?!])

WHILE THERE ARE NO ACTUAL RESTRICTIONS TO WHAT THE MIND CAN THINK, THERE YET IS. “ONE THING”THAT IT CANNOT HANDLE & INCLUDE IN ITS WORLD, WHICH IS THE FACT THAT: IT SEES_ EVERYTHING EXISTING IN TWOS — WHEN IN TWOS, THEY DO NOT EXIST. STATE THIS TO THE MIND AND IT HEARS IT AS TWO STATEMENTS:
EITHER AS, “TRUE”, OR AS, “NOT TRUE”, (An THERE YOU ARE!).

A MAN TOLD HIS SON: “DON’T PAINT YOUR HOUSE IF YOU’RE GOING TO MOVE —
.IN FACT: DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT PAINTING IN FACT: STOP EVEN THINKING
ABOUT YOUR HOUSE, OR — YOU’LL NEVER MOVE.”,
(AND LATER, [AFTER SEVERAL CUPS OF JAVA], THE LAD BECAME PRETTY WELL CONVINCED THAT HIS FATHER HAD BEEN REFERRING TO SOMETHING BESIDES HOUSES & HOUSE PAINTING.)

ONE MAN HAD A MIND THAT SO SO-0-0 STRANGE
EVERYTHING IT HEARD TALKED ABOUT
IT THOUGHT
WAS REALLY ABOUT – IT!
…(NAW!, THIS DOESN’T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH HOUSES, PAINTING & MOVING. NAlq

A MAN WENT TO A HOSPITAL WITH A CUT,
WHICH, THE MORE THEY TRIED TO SEW UP — THE BIGGER IT GOT,

AND A KIDNEY WALKED INTO A PSYCHIATRIST’S OFFICE WITH THE COMPLAINT: “WHEN I HEARD THINGS TALKED ABOUT, I NEVER THINK IT IS ACTUALLY ABOUT ME. …WHAT’S WRONG WITH ME, DOC?!?”

MORAL: NEVER SEND A “REAL” WARRIOR OUT ON A MISSION OF THE MIND —
YOU EITHER JUST: WASTE HIS TALENT — OR:
HE MIGHT JUST SLAY YOUR MIND.
,..(IN ANY CASE: DON’T BE SQUANDERING BLOOD, OR
ATTENTION.)

PERHAPS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT THINGS TO DO IS TO NOT BE ATTACHED TO WHAT YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU KNOW.
…BUT TO DO SO IS TO END ALL CONFUSION & MENTAL VEXATION,
THE EASTER BUNNY WILL NOT SURRENDER HIS IMAGINARY EGGS WITHOUT A FIGHT —
,,,WHICH IS WHY FICTION IS ALWAYS MORE POPULAR THAN NON-FICTION,
AND WHY NON-FICTION DOESN’T EXIST,
.(ASK YOUR OWN “SELF” ABOUT THIS, (BY WAY OF THE MIND, OF COURSE,
I MEAN LIKE, “HOW ELSE?!” HUH’2 [DOES THIS ACTUALLY
MAKE ANY SENSE?!, AND SOMEONE’S MIND REPLIES: “ARE YOU ASKING ME?!”, SURELY WE HAVEN’T SLIPPED THAT FAR!]

TO BE “ENLIGHTENED” IS TO BE, “ANONYMOUS”:
TO BE MORE THAN ENLIGHTENED IS TO NOT KNOW THE MEANING OF “ANONYMOUS”, LESSON: “WEAR A TAG — BE A DRAG.”

3/5ft-
WHILE THE ORDINARY BELIEVE THAT EVER-INCREASING KNOWLEDGE WILL BRING THEM EVER CLOSER TO,”THE TRUTH”,
THE FEW REALIZE THAT IT WILL KEEP THEM FROM IT.

ONE MAN’S PERSONAL MOTTO: “IF ‘THINKING’ WOULD ACTUALLY – GET-YOU-ANY-WHERE,
IT WOULDN’T BE SO POPULAR WITH COMMON PEOPLE.” — DOES ANYONE WANT TO MAKE AN
EDITORIAL REBUTTAL TO THAT?! WOULD ANYONE HERE STOOP SO MENTALLY LOWS’
…DOES ANYONE — GET-THE-POINT?!

DRESSING UP LIKE ROBIN HOOD DOESN’T MAKE YOU ROBIN HOOD; BEING ROBIN HOOD IS WHAT MAKES YOU DRESS UP LIKE ROBIN HOOD. …(IS ANYONE GOING TO DISGRACE THEM-SELF BY LOOKING LIKE THEY DON’T GET THAT ONE EITHER?!)

THE SPEAKER STOOD & LOUDLY PROCLAIMED: “IN PARIS I WAS BORN: IN PARIS I DID LEARN: IN PARIS I MATURED, AND THROUGHOUT IT ALL, I HAVE NEAR DRIVEN MYSELF BATTY BY MY INNER DISCOMFORT WITH IT ALL.
I SPOKE OF THIS TO MY FATHER: I ASKED A PRIEST ABOUT IT:
I SOUGHT A COUNSELOR’S ADVICE, AND I FINALLY SAW A MYSTIC.”, & SOMEONE IN THE CROWD SHOUTED OUT: “WHAT’D HE LOOK LIKE?” — “NO, NO.”, REPLIED THE SPEAKER: YOU MISUNDERSTOOD WHAT I MEANT!” — “OH NO!”, YELLED BACK THE INTERRUPTER, “I KNOW QUITE WELL WHERE YOU WERE GOING WITH YOUR COMMENT,
IT’S JUST THAT ALL OF US OUT HERE ARE SICK OF HEARING ABOUT IT.” “OH”
DEJECTEDLY, MUMBLED THE SPEAKER, PLAYING ALONG WITH THE GAG.
…YOU KNOW, SOME PEOPLE REALLY KNOW HOW TO HAVE FUN! -JUST FOOLIN’ AROUND,
BY THEM SELF,
IN THEIR HEAD.

THERE WAS ONCE A MAN WHO LOVED THE LITTLE ANIMALS OF THE WOODS,
AND OFTEN IN TO, THERE HE WOULD GO, CALLING OUT TO THEM BY THEIR LITTLE NAMES, BUT A STRANGE THING TO REPORT: HE RECENTLY REALIZED THAT FROM HIS NAME CALLING, THE CREATURES WERE BEING KILLED — AND STRANGER THAN THAT, THE FACT THAT THEIR DEATH WAS CONING ABOUT FROM THEM BEING SPLIT IN TWO UPON HEARING HIM
CALL THEIR NAME.
…YOU KNOW, SOME PEOPLE REALLY KNOW HOW TO STIR THINGS UP — ESPECIALLY JUST: FOOLIN’ AROUND,
TO SEE ‘HAT THEY CAN COME UP WITH,
JUST BY THEM SELF, IN THEIR OWN LITTLE HEAD.

ONE MAN SAID: “I HAVE A —’LUMP’!”, THEN ASKED: “IN YOUR CHEST?”,
“NO”, HE REPLIED — “IN YOUR THROAT?”, HE ASKED — “NO.”, HE ANSWERED,
“IN YOUR STOMACH?”, HE ASKED — “NO.”, HE REPLIED
“THEN IN YOUR HEAD, MAYBE?!”, HE ASKED, AND REPLIED,
“HEY, NOW YOU’ ARE GETTIN’ PERSONAL!’
TAKE NOTE: A MIND SUFFERING WITH “DOUBLE VISION” HAS: (A):
NO SENSE OF HUMOR (B):
NO SENSE OF ANATOMY — AND (C):
NO FUTURE OR CLOSE, INNER”PERSONAL FRIENDS”.

MANY ORDINARY PEOPLE FEEL SOMEWHAT AT,”ODDS WITH THEM SELF”:
ALL MYSTICS DO:
THOSE WHO AWAKEN CARRY THE INTERNAL DISCOMFORT TO EVEN GREATER EXTREMES,
WHILE THOSE WHO GET PAST MERELY “AWAKENING”
LOSE THE ABILITY TO “SEE” OPPOSITION IN THEIR LIVES…(MUCH LESS IN THEM SELF).
UPDATE & CORRECTION OF AN OLD RELIGIOUS PROVERB:
IF MAN’S TWIN MINDS DIDN’T EXIST — HE’D HAVE TO INVENT THU:. ! — …(COME TO THINK ABOUT IT — HE DID!,
[COURSE, TAKIN” A HANDFUL OF POETIC LICENCE HERE,
ATTRIBUTING IT TO NAN,
BUT IF I SIMPLY POINT THE FINGER AT THE CORRECT CULPRIT — LIFE -WE DON’T HAVE MUCH OF A STORY…LEAST WISE, THE KIND THAT
INTERESTS ORDINARY FOLK.
I CAN JUST HEAR ‘EN OUT IN THE HEARTLAND NOW JUST A SIGHING:
“AH—H—H, GIMMIE A GOOD STORY, ANY DAY
WITH “MAN” AS THE CENTERPIECE — THE, “HERO”!
WHO ELSE — (WHAT ELSE, EVEN) — CAN SO SERVE?!
WE ARE MEN, AND WE ARE IMPRESSED BY MEN.”, A SENTIMENT EXPRESSED BY LIEN BEFORE, BUT NEVER LEFT OPEN. TO ANY QUESTION REGARDING WHETHER THE TALKING MINDS OF ORDINARY MEN HAVE THE FULL AND OPTIMUM  CONCEPT OF WHAT “MAN” MIGHT COULD BE,
SOMEWHERE, INTERNALLY
JUST BEYOND WHERE HE IS TODAY,

A HERO YOU CAN NAME, A GOAL YOU CAN DESCRIBE, BOTH ARE UNWORTHY OF
A REAL MN’S ATTENTION:
DON’T SETTLE FOR TELLING YOURSELF THAT YOU WILL BECOME, “ENLIGHTENED”,
AND LEAST WHISPER SECRETLY TO YOURSELF THAT SOON, YOU VILL GO EVEN .BEYOND THAT
TO A PLACE, IN YOU – THAT IS FREE OF ALL CONCEPTS, CARES & IDENTITIES:
THAT PLACE FOR WHICH YOU HAVE ALWAYS YEARNED. HOME!, WHERE U IS U…
