MY WRITTEN REPORT TO YOU PEOPLE FOR JANUARY 19TH.
WE OPEN WITH THIS NEWS FLASH:
THINKING HAS ALMOST NOTHING TO DO WITH BEING AWAKE, BUT. EVERYTHING TO DO WITH — BEING ASLEEP.
WITH BEING ALIVE COMES THINGS “UNINVITED”,
(IN FACT, THE PHYSICAL REALITY OF BEING ALIVE COMES TO YOU UNINVITED):
MANS’ SECONDARY, MENTALLY BASED REALITY IS ENTIRELY COMPOSED OF, “THINGS-UNINVITED” WHICH I SUBMIT TO YOU IS THE UNRECOGNIZED BASIS OF ALL THE COMPLAINTS THOSE SUCH AS WE HAVE WITH THEIR INNER LIFE.
FROM ONE PERSPECTIVE IT WOULD SEEM AS THOUGH YOU SHOULD – “GET OVER IT!”, FOR YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO DO ANY MORE ABOUT WHAT PASSES THROUGH YOUR MIND, “UNINVITED”THAN YOU CAN ABOUT THE FACT OF YOUR”BEING ALIVE”.
No SANE PERSON WALKS AROUND CONTINUALLY TALKING TO THEMSELF AND THINKING ABOUT
THE FACT: “WELL, I DIDN’T ASK TO BE BORN, WELL, I DIDN’T ASK TO BE BORN!…”,
SO HOW CAN WE EXCUSE OUR GOING THRU LIFE CONSTANTLY THINKING & MUMBLING TO OURSELVES ABOUT: “HEY, I DIDN’T ASK FOR THESE THOUGHTS!…I DIDN’T ASK FOR MY CONSCIOUSNESS TO WORK LIKE THIS!”
ONE MAN HAD A LITTLE TOY .CAR_772. AND IT WAS ALREADY RUNNING WHEN HE GOT IT,
AND FOR A WHILE IT WAS FUN AND ENTERTAINING, BUT EVENTUALLY ITS CONSTANT OPERATION BEGAN TO ANNOY HIM, AND HE TRIED TO TURN IT OFF — BUT TO NO IMMEDIATE SUCCESS. HE THEN TRIED TO THROW IT AWAY, BUT FOUND IT HAD BECOME AFFIXED TO HIM.
HE THEN RETURNED TO ATTEMPTING TO TURN IT OFF, AND AFTER EXTENSIVE”TRIALS-&-ERRORS” DISCOVERED VARIOUS METHODS WHICH WOULD MOMENTARILY, RELATIVELY-SPEAKING,
ALMOST SHUT IT OFF —
BUT AS SOON AS HIS ATTENTION WAS DRAWN ELSEWHERE, (WHICH IT INEVITABLY WOULD BE), THE LITTLE _CAR – WOULD BE AGAIN RUNNING AT FULL STEAM.
HE FINALLY TURNED HI S.MIND TO A DETAILED STUDY OF THE MACHINE AND HOW IT OPERATED, AND CAME TO UNDERSTAND THE THEORY THERE BEHIND;
HE SIMPLY CAME TO REALIZE — AND ACCEPT-THE-FACT-THAT
IT WAS DESIGNED AND INTENDED TO RUN CONSTANTLY —
— SUCH WAS ITS NATURAL CONDITION, AND THE ONLY THING UN-NATURAL IN THE WHOLE AFFAIR WAS THE MAN’S REGULAR AWARENESS THEREOF AND ANNOYANCE THEREWITH.
A POTENTIAL MORAL: IF YOU HAVE A LITTLE TOY CAR_ WHICH YOU CAN’T THROW AWAY,
AND WHICH YOU CAN’T TURN OFF — FORGET ABOUT IT! — LEARN TO IGNORE IT! -WHAT THE HELL’S YOUR REASONABLE ALTERNATIVE?!

AND NOW THE TITLES OF SEVERAL UNPUBLISHED SONGS, APPLICABLE TO THE
GENERAL POPULATION, BUT WHICH ARE RARELY, IF EVER HEARD PUBLICLY PERFORMED:
“I’M A PHYSICAL ‘GIANT’, AND A MENTAL PYGMY, BUT I’M TOO DUMB TO KNOW IT.”,
AND ANOTHER ONE:
“I’M A MENTAL ‘GIANT’, AND A PHYSICAL PIGMY, AND I SIMPLY DON’T CARE.”,
AND THEN THERE IS A THIRD ONE PERTINENT TO THE .01 PER CENTERS:
“I AM BOTH OF THE ABOVE EXCEPT I AM AWARE OF IT, AND I DO CARE.
SO — I EITHER:’HAVE-A-LEG-UP’ ON EVERYBODY ELSE — OR:
I’VE BEEN CUT OFF AT MY MENTAL KNEES,
AND THUS HAVE THE WORST OF BOTH CASES AND WITHOUT THE’ MEDIATING-GRACES’ OF
IGNORANCE, OR’NOT-CARING’.”
AND WE NOW INTERRUPT FOR THIS IMPORTANT, LATE BREAKING STORY: THINKING HAS ALMOST NOTHING TO DO WITH ENLIGHTENMENT, BUT EVERYTHING TO DO WITH — BEING-IN-THE DARK.
…NOW BACK TO OUR REGULAR (HA HA) PROGRAMMING.
To BE A, “POSSESSOR-OF” A”HOST-FOR” — A “VICTIM-OF” ORDINARY CONSCIOUSNESS
IS TO BE A PART OF A SIX BILLION PERSON “FLEA MARKET” WHEREIN EACH PERSON IS BOTH A POTENTIAL BUYER AND SELLER VIS A VIS A RELATIONSHIP TO YOU.
UNDER NORMAL CONDITIONS IN THIS MARKET PLACE, EVERY PERSON’S THOUGHTS ARE A POTENTIAL TRIGGER FOR EVERYONE ELSE’S THOUGHTS.
THOUGHTS BEGAT OTHER THOUGHTS 3– WORDS TRIGGER ADDITIONAL WORDS, AND DREAMS INSPIRE MORE DREAMS.
ACTUALLY LISTENING TO ANYONE ELSE’S IDEAS — READING THEIR WORDS, OR ENTERTAINING THEIR ART IS AN INVITATION FOR THEIR DREAMS AND MENTAL DISTORTIONS TO TRIGGER SUCH IN YOU.
DON’T CONTINUE TO BE DECEIVED; IF YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS IS ON ANYTHING OTHER THAN. ITSELF, YOUR MIND IS NOT YOUR OWN — THE THOUGHTS YOU ENTERTAIN ARE FOREIGN TO YOU;
YOU ARE NOT REALLY TRYING TO AWAKEN, BUT ARE IN FACT SOLICITING YOUR OWN SLEEP.
REMEMBER AND CONSIDER THE MYSTIC WHOSE METHOD WAS ENCAPSULATED IN THESE WORDS: “IF YOU’RE NOT THINKING ABOUT ‘ME’) YOU’RE NOT TRYING TO AWAKEN.
You MUST THINK ONLY ABOUT ‘ME’– NOT ABOUT ANYTHING THAT’S IN YOUR, OR
ANYONE ELSE’S MIND. THINK ONLY ABOUT – ‘ME’!”
P.S. No TOY CAR’S REAL NAME IS, “ME”.

THERE ARE TWO WAYS OF CONSIDERING THE SENSE OF THE PRESENT, EITHER: “NOW IS NOT FOREVER.” — OR,
“THIS VERY MOMENT IS THE SAME AS FOREVER.”
P.S. ONE OF THE TWO IS THE MORE USEFUL FOR OUR INTERESTS.
XXX
IF YOUR MIND STAYS COMPLETELY TAKEN UP BY THE THOUGHTS PASSING THRU IT YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND THE NATURE OF THOUGHT, AND BE ABLE TO LIBERATE YOUR MIND THEREFROM.
WHEN ONE MAN SAID THAT THE WAY HE KEPT ALERT AND EXERCISED SOME CONTROL
WAS BY CONSTANTLY “WATCHING HIS FEET”,
ANOTHER CHAP LAUGHED DERISIVELY AND SAID: “You SILLY NINNY, YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG: YOU SHOULD BE WATCHING YOUR HANDS!” ….DOES ANYONE HEAR THE REAL MESSAGE HEREIN AS CONCERNS THE VARIOUS APPARENT APPROACHES TO ACHIEVING THE GOAL?!
AND A CERTAIN FATHER, WITH MUCH MORE EXPERIENCE IN A CERTAIN MATTER,
ONE DAY SAID TO HIS SON: “WHAT WOULD YOU THINK IF I TOLD YOU NOW THAT THE THING WE HAVE FOR SO LONG BEEN REFERRING TO AS THE ‘WAKING-UP-OF-THE-MIND’ HAS ALMOST NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT GOES ON IN YOUR MIND?”, AND WITH NO HESITATION THE BOY REPLIED:
“I COULD ALMOST BELIEVE IT NOW.”

AND IN THESE WORDS, ONE MAN ATTEMPTS TO CONVEY CERTAIN OF HIS EXPERIENCES:
“IT HAS BEFORE STRUCK ME THAT MY WORDS HAVE A — MIND-OF-THEIR-OWN,
AND EVEN THAT MY MIND HAS A — MIND-OF-ITS-OWN,
BUT NOW MY PERSPECTIVE IS THAT MY BRAIN HAS A MIND OF ITS OWN — EXCEPT THAT….
…WELL, THE MIND IS NOT ITS OWN, NOR MINE EITHER;
,,,.NO ONE SEEMS TO KNOW WHOSE MIND IT IS,
AND ONLY THOSE DEEP IN THE DARK & FAST ASLEEP BELIEVE OTHERWISE.
EVERYONE IS BORN WITH A PERSONAL YARD & DOG, AND SINCE DAY ONE
THE DOG HAS RUN WILD AND OUT OF THEIR CONTROL;
BUT SINCE THIS SEEMS THE WORLD WIDE NORM, NO ONE APPEARS PARTICULARLY BOTHERED BY IT, (OR ELSE THEY DO A BANG-UP JOB OF NOT LETTING ON!)
A SCANT FEW PEOPLE HOWEVER, THROUGHOUT MAN’S HISTORY HAVE BEEN SO DISSATISFIED WITH THE UNCONTROLLABLE NATURE OF THEIR DOG THAT THEY HAVE ATTEMPTED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
THE EFFORTS OF MOST ONLY SERVES TO INCREASE THEIR ANNOYANCE AND FRUSTRATION WITH THE SITUATION IN THAT THEY NEVER DISCOVER THAT THE DOG
CANNOT CHANGE , AND THAT ALL A PERSON CAN DO TO EFFECT THE SITUATION
IS TO ADOPT A NEW VIEW AND ATTITUDE TOWARD THE DOG.
AFTER CONSIDERABLE TIME PONDERING MY INNER WORLD WITHIN THIS FRAMEWORK
MY EARLIER VIEW BECAME THUS EXPANDED, (IT THEN HIT ME THAT):
MY BRAIN NOT ONLY HAS A MIND OF ITS OWN — IT ALSO HAS TWO EYES!
Two EYES — THE BETTER FOR ONE TO WATCH THE OTHER.
(A METHOD I MIGHT NOTE THAT CAN SPECIFICALLY EFFECT A MAN’S RELATIONSHIP
TO HIS DOG.)
LET ME TELL YOU WHAT I HAVE LEARNED THROUGH ALL OF THIS:
SOME ANIMALS NOT ONLY CANNOT — WILL NOT BE DISCIPLINED BY WORD OR THOUGHT, BUT IN TRUTH, THINKING ABOUT THEM AND SPEAKING TO THEM ONLY INCREASES THEIR UNDESIRABLE BEHAVIOR.
THIS AT FIRST SOUNDS STRANGE, BUT I ASSURE YOU THAT THROUGH YOUR OWN PURSUIT OF THE MATTER — WITH AN EVER ALERT, OBJECTIVE EYE — YOU WILL FIND ME PROVED CORRECT.

2004-5
LET ME RELAY TO YOU A STORY:
EARLY IN LIFE, ONE MAN HEARD OF •:J EXOTIC, FOREIGN LAND WHICH HE DECIDED
WAS WHERE HE WISHED TO LIVE, BUT EVERYTHING HE BELIEVED HE PERCEIVED ABOUT
THE JOURNEY THERETO SAID TO HIM THAT THE TRIP WOULD BE EXTREMELY TAXING,
SINGULARLY DIFFICULT, AND UNIQUELY COMPLEX.
ALL-IN-ALL: HE TOTALLY ACCEPTED AS FACT THAT THIS WOULD BE ABSOLUTELY THE MOST
DIFFICULT UNDERTAKING POSSIBLE FOR A HUMAN BEING.
AND FOR A LONG TIME HIS PERCEPTION SEEMED WELL FOUNDED,
FOR MANY YEARS WERE SPENT IN UNSUITABLE AND UNSUSTAINABLE EFFORTS,
MANY FALSE STARTS, AND MOVES IN WHAT PROVED TO BE IMPROPER, FUTILE DIRECTIONS.
…AND THEN ONE DAY HE MADE A STARTLING DISCOVERY;
HE REALIZED HOW TO GET TO THE NEW LOCALE,
WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE SIMPLICITY ITSELF —
— BUT THEN SOMETHING EVEN MORE SURPRISING OCCURRED:
NOW THAT THE TRIP TO THE NEW PLACE WAS SEEN AS BEING SIMPLE, IMMEDIATE & DIRECT, IT NOW SEEMED HARDER FOR HIM TO REMEMBER THAT HE WANTED TO GO THERE ?!?
AND I AM AWARE OF HOW BIZARRE THIS SOUNDS, BUT AS I PREVIOUSLY NOTED:
FEW PEOPLE CAN COMPREHEND MY SAYING THAT SIMPLY — LOOKING AT AN OUT OF CONTROL DOG CAN ALTER YOUR FEELINGS-ABOUT & RELATIONSHIP-TO THE ANIMAL.
(LET’S GO BACK TO THE BRAIN): ALTHOUGH NOT NOTED BY NEUROLOGY, I TELL YOU THAT THERE IS SOMETHING ELSE SURPRISING THAT. YOU CAN SEE FOR YOURSELF:
THE BRAIN HAS ITS OWN EYES — TWO EYES,
AND WHILE YOU WILL EVENTUALLY REALIZE THE FLAW IN THIS STATEMENT,
BY THE TIME YOU DO, IT WILL BE TOO LATE INASMUCH AS BY THEN THE WHOLE AFFAIR WILL BE TRANSPARENTLY CLEAR TO YOU, AND NO WORDS OR DESCRIPTIONS ANY LONGER MATTER
BUT — HAVING SAID ALL OF THAT LET ME SAY TO YOU AGAIN THAT,
ALTHOUGH NOT USED BY ORDINARY PEOPLE UNDER ORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCES
OUR BRAIN HAS TWO EYES, OR IF YOU PREFER; THE CAPACITY FOR TWO EYES, WHICH, WHEN BROUGHT INTO PROPER PLAY WILL FREE A PERSON’S CONSCIOUSNESS FROM THE HYPNOTIC HOLD THAT COMES FROM USING BUT ONE OF THE BRAIN’S EYES WHICH ALWAYS RESULTS IN ONE’S MIND BEING TOTALLY ENGROSSED IN BUT ONE MATTER AT A TIME.
SIMPLY PUT FOR PEOPLE LIKE US: IT RESULTS IN THE STATE OF “SLEEP & DISTORTION”
IN THE SO-CALLED, “AWAKENED, ENLIGHTENED” STATE: ONE EYE WATCHES THE OTHER — UNTIL THE WATCHED ONE BECOMES SO CALMED AS TO EVENTUALLY REVEAL ITSELF AS BEING AN ILLUSIONARY — UNNECESSARY “OTHER EYE”;
THEN. THE SITUATION OF YOU BEING THE DISSATISFIED MASTER OF AN OUT-OF-CONTROL DOG SHIFTS…CONDENSES…MERGES AND COMES INTO THE LIGHT IN SUCH A WAY AS TO FREE YOU FROM THIS IMPOSSIBLE AND FRUSTRATING APPARENT — APPARENT RELATIONSHIP.

2004-6
ONE OF THE BRAIN’S EYES IS NATURALLY “OUT OF ITS CONTROL”,
AND ADDICTED-TO, IF NOT ACTUALLY DEPENDENT-ON STIMULI OUTSIDE ITSELF,
AND NOTHING A MAN CAN DO WILL EVER CHANGE THIS.
DON’T WASTE ENERGY TRYING — SIMPLY: ACTIVATE THE BRAIN’S OTHER EYE! —
MOVE YOUR ATTENTION FROM THE OLD EYE WHOSE SIGHT IS FOREVER FIXED ON THINGS
OUTSIDE ITSELF,
AND PLACE YOUR EMPHASIS ON THE NEWLY ACTIVATED — UNCOMMITTED EYE•
WHOSE PRIMARY ACTIVITY IS SIMPLY WATCHING THE OLD, OUT OF CONTROL ONE.
HERE IS THE FARAWAY, EXOTIC LAND SO DREAMED OF BY A FEW, BUT IT IS EASILY AND IMMEDIATELY ACCESSIBLE.
MAY I REPEAT AN EARLIER NEWS FLASH THAT REPORTED:
WHAT GOES ON IN. YOUR MIND HAS ALMOST NOTHING TO DO WITH ACHIEVING THE GOAL; WITH ‘WAKING UP’ — ‘SEEING THE LIGHT’ AND REALIZING FOR YOURSELF
WHAT THIS THING CALLED, ‘BEING ALIVE & CONSCIOUS’ IS ACTUALLY ALL ABOUT.
AFTER A CERTAIN TIME AND SHIFT IN ONE’S INNER TERRAIN, THE MORE SAID AND THOUGHT ABOUT THE NEW PLACE THE FURTHER IT RECEDES FROM YOUR GRASP.
A CERTAIN OPTOMETRISTS NOTES:’BY THE TIME I CAN DESCRIBE TO YOU – OR TO MYSELF -‘THE-NATURE-OF-SIGHT’
I HAVE THEREBY, MANAGED TO PUT OUT MY OWN EYES, AND
MOMENTARILY MAKE MYSELF BLIND.’
CAN YOU PIECE IT ALL TOGETHER FOR YOURSELF? THAT:
IF YOU CEASE SPEAKING TO YOUR UNRULY DOG ITS BEHAVIOR WILL CEASE TO CONCERN YOU —
…THE TRICK BEING TO WATCH THAT ONE EYE WITH THE BRAIN’S OTHER EYE.
UNDER ROUTINE CONDITIONS, THE OLD, NATURALLY ACTIVE EYE-OF-THE-BRAIN STAYS SO PHYSICALLY CLOSE TO WHATEVER FOR THE MOMENT, HAS ITS ATTENTION, THAT IT IS STUCK THERETO AS SURELY AS A TONGUE TO A FROZEN FLAG POLE -AS CONSCIOUSNESS TO A THOUGHT.
I LEAVE MY COMMUNIQUE TO YOU WITH THIS: WHEN YOU’RE LOOKING WITH ONLY ONE OF
THE BRAIN’S EYES, THAT EYE WILL BE SO STUCK-TO & SUBMERGED-IN WHAT ITS LOOKING AT THAT YOU’LL BE UNABLE TO HEAR CONSCIOUSNESS.
No DOUBT ABOUT IT, THOUGH SCIENTIFICALLY GROTESQUE: LOOKING WITH JUST ONE EYE CAN KEEP YOU FROM HEARING.
GOOD BYE TO YOU ALL, AND:’HAPPY DOUBLE SIGHT’!”

OF ONE MAN IT WAS SAID: “THE QUESTIONS THAT HIS IDEAS RAISE ARE SUPERIOR TO THE ANSWERS EVERYONE ELSE PROPOSE.”,
AND I SAY THAT YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THE SAME BEING SO RGEARDING WHAT GOES ON IN YOUR OWN MIND.
AND NOW FOR THE LATEST WEATHER:
WHAT MEN THINK OF AS, “THINKING” HAS ALMOST NOTHING TO DO WITH LIBERATION, BUT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH CAPTIVITY.
AND ONE MAN SAYS: “ALTHOUGH I LIVE ALONE,
I NOW REALIZE THAT I HAVE ALL ALONG BEEN MARRIED TO MY ONE EYED MIND.”
NOTE: THERE IS NO MIND WITHOUT MEMORY, AND THE BRAIN’S “ONE-EYED-SIGHT” CAN NEVER BE FREE OF THIS BLINDING & DISTORTING CONNECTION.
A BRAIN, A MIND, AN EYE IS ONLY AWAKE, FREE & ENLIGHTENED WHEN IT IS: BLANK, EMPTY, AND WITHOUT COMMENT OR COMMITMENT.
AMONG OTHER POTENTIAL PROBLEMS INHERENT IN THE BRAIN’S ROUTINE OPERATIONS IS:
PLANNING KEEPS THINKING FROM CLOTTING,– AND,
REMINISCING KEEPS CONSCIOUSNESS FROM:EVER GETTING ITS.CAKES.FULLY BAKED,
AND THINKING ABOUT ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE NATURE OF THINKING
IS A SURER WAY TO BLINDNESS THAN THE “ONE HANDED TANGO”.
IF YOU’RE WANTING TO AWAKEN, EVERYTHING THAT GOES ON IN THE SECONDARY REALM -TAKES TOO LONG — MOVES TOO SLOW, AND ABOVE ALL DOES THIS APPLY TO THE UNSOLICITED THOUGHTS THAT PASS THROUGH YOUR MIND.
THE KEY WORD TO REALIZING THE GOAL IS: “IMMEDIACY” — IMMEDIACY. THE SLIGHTEST HESITATION SPELLS CERTAIN FAILURE.
THINKING HAS ALMOST NOTHING TO DO WITH WAKING UP TO THE FACTS, BUT EVERYTHING TO DO WITH SLEEPING AMIDST ILLUSION.
“IMMEDIACY” EQUALS SILENCE: IMMEDIACY IS STILLNESS.
THE MOST WONDROUS THING ON EARTH; THE MOST WONDROUS THING IN THE LIFE OF MAN IS HIS MIND,
THE GREAT DOUBLE, MOST WONDROUS-NESS IS IN HOW LITTLE MEN KNOW OF THEIR MIND.
