THE NEWS FOR JANUARY 13, 1999
FROM AN AWAKENED VIEW IT ALMOST SEEMS AS THOUGH THOUGHTS,
NOT AT THE MOMENT SPECIFICALLY FOCUSED AND CONTROLLED ON A MATTER AT HAND,
HAVE AS THEIR INTENTION NOTHING LESS THAN MAKING YOU CONTINUALLY LOOK
ANY WHERE BUT WHERE YOU ARE AT THE MOMENT.
IT’S ALMOST AS THOUGH THINGS ARE ARRANGED SO THAT THOUGHTS ARE DETERMINED TO
SHOW THAT YOUR BODY CAN INSTINCTIVELY & AUTOMATICALLY TAKE FULL CARE OF WHATEVER
IT IS INSTANTLY DOING WHILE YOUR THOUGHTS TAKE YOUR MIND FAR AWAY TO
SOME OTHER PLACE AS IT PAYS NO SPECIFIC ATTENTION TO WHAT THE BODY IS UP TO.
I ASK YOU: HOW CAN THOSE SEEKING TO AWAKEN SEE THIS AFFAIR AS ANYTHING LESS THAN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS & DETRIMENTAL TO THEIR AIM, IF NOT THEIR VERY HEALTH?!
ONE MAN WOULD REFLECT ON THIS MATTER IN THESE TERMS:
AS BEING  , “KIDNAPPED-FROM-THE-MOMENT, AND ENSLAVED-BY-THOUGHTS”.
* * *
AND NOW I WILL ATTEMPT TO CONVEY TO YOU A CERTAIN SOMETHING IN THE FORM OF
AN ALLEGORY….WHICH MAY NOT SEEM TO MAKE A WHOLE LOT OF SENSE….BUT WHICH IF
I TRIED TO PRESENT NON-ALLEGORICALLY, WOULD MAKE EVEN LESS SENSE — SO, HERE ‘TIS:
THERE WAS ONCE A MAN WHOSE PRIMARY INTEREST IN L[FE WAS IN
LOSING HIS INTEREST IN, (LET US SAY) — MOUNTAIN CLIMBING.
P.S.: AT A LATER TIME HE CONCEIVED OF HIS GOAL AS BEING ABLE TO STOP WANTING TO LOSE HIS INTEREST THEREIN.
AND ONE MAN BEGAN TO PONDER THE SITUATION THUS: “AM I A SLAVE TO THOUGHTS — OR
AM I A SLAVE TO THINKING ABOUT BEING A SLAVE TO THOUGHTS?”
* * *
ONLY THE THOUGHTS IN MAN SEEK TO SEE SOME ORDER TO LIFE, AND TO “MAKE SOME SENSE OF — BEING ALIVE”….
….ALL OTHER ASPECTS OF MAN ARE TOO BUSY LIVING TO HAVE ANY SUCH CONCERNS.
AND YET ANOTHER MAN SO MUSED:
“ONE UPSIDE OF BEING ILL IS THAT YOUR M[ND TENDS TO BECOME MORE FOCUSED
THAN USUAL.” ….(HELLAVA WAY TO GO ABOUT AWAKENING, HUH?!)
CURIOUS, BUT NOW THAT HE MENTIONED IT: 99004-2

NEVER DO YOU HEAR
A MAN DIAGNOSED AS DYING
FRET ABOUT,”LIFE MAKING SENSE” —
— HE’S ALWAYS TOO BUSY STRUGGLING TO STAY A PART Of LIFE.
IS THERE NOT POTENTIALLY USEFUL DATA THEREIN REGARDING THE
NEEDED-TO-BE-RECOGNIZED-RELATIONSHIP-BETWEEN MAN’S INSTINCTIVE EXISTENCE, AND HIS MAKE BELIEVE WORLD OF THOUGHTS?!
TO BE AWAKE & CLEAR-HEADED IS TO NO LONGER BE LOOKING FOR SOME SENSE TO, “BEING ALIVE”:
TO BE AWAKE & CLEAR-HEADED IS TO SIMPLY — BE ALIVE,
WITH NOTHING TO SAY ON THE MATTER.
I REMIND YOU AGAIN:
FROM THE VIEW-OF-THE-FEW: THE LESS THOUGHT & SAID ABOUT YOUR LIFE, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCE OF SUCCESS.
* * *
WHEN ONE MAN FIRST HEARD THE TERM, “MI[ND GAMES”, HE SAID TO HIMSELF: “WHAT A SUPERFLUOUS, THOUGH EXACT EMPLOYMENT OF THE WORD, ‘GAMES’ — FOR HOW ELSE CAN YOU PROPERLY SPEAK OF THAT ACTIVITY
STIRRED LIP IN MAN’S CONSCIOUSNESS BY THOUGHTS?!
YET AGAIN DO MEN UNKNOWINGLY POINT DIRECTLY TO REALITY OF A SITUATION WHILE PRETENDING TO BE UN-CONSCIOUS THEREOF.”
* * *
AFTER HEARING A RELIGIOUS SPOKESMAN DECLARE:
“WE ASPIRE TO GREAT THINGS BECAUSE OUR INSPIRATION COMES FROM GOD.”,
ONE MAN SO REFLECTED: “HOW SAD IT IS, AND HOW MUCH DO MEN MISS OUT ON
BY NOT REALIZING THAT THEIR HIGHEST GOALS & IDEALS COME NOT FROM OUTSIDE DEITIES,
BUT FROM THEIR OWN THOUGHTS,
FOR THEN THEY COULD GIVE-THE ATTENTION PROPERLY DUE THIS ACTIVITY,
AND THUS, BETTER UNDERSTAND, AND BETTER MAKE PROFITABLE USE THEREOF.”,
AND AFTER SO MUSING ON THIS MATTER, THE MAN WAS ADDITIONALLY SO STRUCK:
“MY GOD, HOW THIS IS ALL APPLICABLE TO MY DESIRE TO FULLY & PERMANENTLY AWAKEN.”
FOR THE MYTHICAL TRAIN-TO-AWAKENING TO EVER REACH ITS DESTINATION
YOU MUST FINALLY SEE FOR YOURSELF WHAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN ITS
UNRECOGNIZED PLACE OF ORIGIN.
THE GRANDEST ACHIEVEMENT POSSIBLE FOR MAN IS THE UNDERSTANDING OF HIS OWN MIND.

NOW FOR THIS QUESTION:
WHAT MORE CAN YOU POSSIBLY THINK OR SAY
AFTER YOU’VE ONCE REALIZED THAT THERE IS NOTHING MORE TO THINK OR SAY? ….(COMFORTING, HUH?!”)
AND ONE MAN SUDDENLY ASKED HIMSELF:
“JUST HOW MANY QUESTIONS CONTAIN WITHIN THEM — UN-NOTICED FACTS?…”, AND IMMEDIATELY REALIZED THE ANSWER: “WHY — ALL OF THEM.”
…(DOUBLE ASSURING, HUH?!”
A MIND NOT PROPERLY INSPIRED BY “QUESTIONS” WILL NEVER SEE THE NATURE OF “ANSWERS”.
….THE ESSENCE OF MAN’S MIND IS THE ESSENCE OF ALL THINGS PERCEIVED BY HIS MIND AND NO ONE CAN OPEN THEIR EYES AND AROUSE FROM SLEEP —
— EXCEPT THEIR EYE FINALLY REALIZE THE NATURE OF THE SITUATION THAT PRODUCES THE PHENOMENON OF,”MENTAL SIGHT”.
IT CAN BE SAID THAT PHYSICALLY, THE EYE CAN NEVER SEE ITSELF, BUT MENTALLY — TO EVER AWAKEN — SUCH IS AN IMPERATIVE.
…AND LET ME ADD THIS — TO ALL OF THAT:
TO FULLY CLEAR-YOUR-HEAD AND ACHIEVE ENLIGHTENED CONSCIOUSNESS
YOU MUST BE ABLE,
WHEN LOOKING INTO AN EMPTY HOLE,
TO SEE THAT IT IS EMPTY.
…NO FORMS OF DECEPTION, (NO MATTER HOW ENTERTAINING OR PROVOCATIVE), CAN BE TOLERATED BY THOSE WHO WOULD SEE:THIS JOURNEY THROUGH.
THE MINDS OF THE AWAKENED DO NOT MERELY, “SEEK THE TRUTH”, THEIR MINDS ARE THE SILENT EMBODIMENT OF THE TRUTH.
