SOME HAVE OPINED OF HOW “ODD” IT IS TO :BE ALIVE–
BUT THEY UNDERSTATE THE MATTER–
FOR THE TRUE ODDNESS IS IN THE DIFFERENCE, NEVER NOTED, BETWEEN WHAT “BEING ALIVE” PLAINLY AND PHYSICALLY IS, AND WHAT MENS’ MINDS MAKE IT OUT TO BE.
Now THERE IS THE FOUNTAINHEAD OF ALL ODDITIES.
XXX
QUESTION: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN “INTELLIGENT MAN” AND A “MORON”? AN INTELLIGENT MAN IS THE ONE WHO’LL INSIST THAT HE’S NOT A MORON.
…(YOU COULD APPLY.THIS _QUERY_IN.A.DIFFERENT AREA BY CHANGING THE
TERMS, “INTELLIGENT MAN AND MORON” TO,
A “SLEEPING MAN &AN AWAKE ONE”, AND SEE WHAT YOU COME UP WITH.)

THE MUCH QUOTED IDEA THAT: “THE UNEXAMINED LIFE IS NOT WORTH LIVING”
OMITS TO NOTE,A PERTINENT ASPECT THERETO WHICH BEARS DIRECTLY ON THE
MATTER OF INTEREST TO SUCH AS WE;
FOR OUR PURPOSES IT SHOULD READ:
“THE UNEXAMINABLE PART OF LIFE IS THE ONLY ONE WORTH LIVING –
….AND IN TRUTH: “THE UNEXAMINABLE PART OF LIFE IS THE ONE WE ACTUALLY LIVE.”
XXX
MUCH OF MAN’S SECONDARY ACTIVITIES SERVE THE PURPOSE OF
DIMINISHING THE POSSIBILITY OF HIS MIND DRIFTING TO AREAS WHEREIN HE MIGHT BE PROMPTED TO “CATCH ON” TO WHAT’S — GOING ON.
…(TUT, TUT! — CAN’T HAVE THAT.)
2017-5,5

Two WAYS TO LOOK AT THE SAME SITUATION:
IN ALL OF HIS TALK ABOUT HIMSELF A MAN IS TRYING TO “DEFINE WHAT HE IS”…. ….BUT NOT VERY HARD.
SECOND TAKE:
IN ALL OF HIS TALK ABOUT HIMSELF A MAN IS TRYING TO DO ANYTHING BUT DEFINE HIMSELF.
WHEN A MAN SEEMS TO BE TRYING TO TELL YOU WHAT KINDA GUY HE IS HE’S DOING ANYTHING BUT.
2017-6

WHILE IT REQUIRES LITTLE EFFORT TO REALIZE HOW LITTLE KNOWLEDGE MEN EVIDENCE AS HAVING OF THEM SELF,
IT DEMANDS MORE INTENSE SCRUTINY TO CONFRONT THE FACT THAT EVEN THOSE SPECIAL PEOPLE WHO SAY THAT THEY, “SEEK ENLIGHTENMENT”, AND “WANT TO WAKE UP” CAN BE VIEWED AS USING THIS AS THEIR OWN WAY TO KEEP FROM FACING UP TO WHAT THEY ARE.
THUS UNDER THE GUISE OF: “STRUGGLING TO DISCOVER” WHAT THEY AREA (WHICH IN FACT IS ALREADY KNOWN TO THEM),
THEY PRETEND THEY ARE ON A “GREAT MYSTICAL QUEST” WHICH KEEPS THEM
ADEQUATELY DISTRACTED FROM HAVING TO FACE UP TO WHAT THEY ALREADY KNOW,

THE ULTIMATE ASPECT OF THE, “NOT WANTING TO KNOW WHO/WHAT YOU ARE”
IS IN YOUR MIND’S REFUSAL TO SEE THAT ITS THOUGHTS ARE ALMOST ENTIRELY IRRELEVANT TO THE LIFE YOU ACTUALLY LEAD.
ORDINARY PEOPLE AREN’T REALLY INTERESTED IN KNOWING WHAT THEY ARE, WHILE
THOSE SEEKING ENLIGHTENMENT HAVE TURNED IT INTO A NAY-OF-LIFE.
HERE’s ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW FOR NOW: PHYSICAL EXISTENCE IS REAL —
EVERYTHING ELSE IS NOT, (NOT IN THE SAME SENSE);
EVERYTHING ELSE IS PART OF A SECONDARY REALITY
CONCEIVED AND SUPPORTED BY THE MIND OF MAN,

2017-6.5
PEOPLE WHO ENTERTAIN LECTURES AND WRITINGS WHICH TELL THEM HOW THEY SHOULD BE. DO SO PRIMARILY TO KEEP FROM LOOKING AT HOW THEY ARE.
APPARENTLY THE TUNE GOES LIKE THIS:
BETTER TO BE A “GUILT-RIDDEN SINNER AND AN UNDERACHIEVER” THAN WHATEVER I MIGHT REALLY BE UNDER THIS SINFUL UNDERACHIEVER’S CLOAK.
“LOOK AWAY, LOOK AWAY,
LOOK AWAY WAY, WAY FROM
RIGHT CHEER.”

2017-7
PERHAPS IT’S NOT EVEN A MATTER OF US NOT WANTING TO “KNOW”WHAT WE ARE AS IT IS THAT WE _SIMPLY AREN’T INTERESTED ENOUGH TO PIDDLE WITH IT)
WE FIND IT GENERALLY MORE ENTERTAINING, AMUSING & INTERESTING
TO JUST LET OUR THOUGHTS WANDER WHERE THEY WILL — WHICH WILL BE,”AWAY FROM US”.
…(IF THIS IS NOT A GREAT “CONSPIRACY”, [WHICH IT’S NOT….PROBABLY(?!?)], THEN BY GOD, A GRAND OPPORTUNITY WAS MISSED.)
AND I CLOSE THESE PAPERS WITH ANOTHER REMINDER:
THE SUPREME REALITY OF MAN “NOT WANTING TO KNOW WHAT HE IS”
LIES IN THE MIND NOT NATURALLY SEEING THAT ITS ROUTINE THINKING HAS ALMOST NO RELEVANCE TO THE ACTUAL PHYSICAL LIVES MEN LEAD.
THESE IS PERHAPS THE BLUNTEST VERBAL. FORM POSSIBLE FOR AN EXPRESSION OF, “WHAT THE SECRET IS.” —
OF WHAT IT IS ABOUT._ MAN THAT IS HIDDEN FROM HIM —
— ALTHOUGH IT. IS RIGHT OUT IN PLAIN SIGHT.
HOW”GRAND” AN..ARRANGEMENT .
WHEREBY A SECRET BE KEPT.

2017-4.5
MANKIND HAS LONG BEEN FASCINATED WITH ATTEMPTS TO CLASSIFY MEN AS TO “TYPES”, AND HERE IS A NEW SUGGESTION:
CLASSIFY THEM AS TO THE MOST SALIENT & CONSISTENT ASPECTS OF THEM-SELF
ABOUT WHICH THEY DENY TO THEM-SELF.
XXX
THOSE WHO ARE STILL AMATEURS AT THIS DO A WHOLE LOT OF THINKING ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF NOT THINKING,
WHEREAS THE MORE EXPERIENCED THINK ABOUT ALMOST NOTHING BUT THINKING.
ONE MAN RECEIVED A LETTER WHICH STATED:
“STUDYING THE MIND WITH A SERIOUS EXPECTATION OF BEING ABLE TO EVENTUALLY “EXPLAIN” IT
IS LIKE SPENDING TIME COUNTING WARTS ON A CROCODILE.”
XXX
AFTER REASONABLE EXAMINATION, WHO CAN DENY THAT THE VOICE PART OF CONSCIOUSNESS APPEARS TO WANT TO “BE ASLEEP”?’ TO STAY.DISTRACTED AND OUT OF CONTROL, AND THUS OFFER NO REAL KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT/WHO WE ARE?
LEFT TO ITS OWN NATURAL DEVICES & INCLINATIONS, EVERYTHING IT DOES VIRTUALLY SCREAMS OUT THAT SUCH IS THE CASE.
YET EVEN AS’WE YIELD TO THE EVER-PRESENT MECHANICAL FORCES THAT DIVERT OUR ATTENTION FROM OUR “ATTENTION-MECHANISM”, (SO AS TO KEEP US IGNORANT OF WHAT WE ARE), OUR ANIMALISTIC, NON-CONSCIOUS OPERATIONS ARE ALWAYS PRESENT AND PREPARED TO HELP IN YOUR STRUGGLE TO UNDERSTAND YOURSELF, AND ALL YOU
NEED DO TO AVAIL YOURSELF OF THIS ASSISTANCE IS TO RELAX AND LET GO.
…CEASE CHASING THE SHADOWS THAT LURK ABOUT EVERYONE’S HOME.

2018-2
FOR THOSE WHO BY NOW HAVE THEIR OWN UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT I MEAN BY MY TERMS, “PRIMARY AND SECONDARY REALITY”, LOOK THRU HERE:
To GIVE ANY CREDENCE TO SECONDARY ACTIVITIES IS TO BE FOREVER IN THE DARK.
THERE IS PHYSICALLY NO WAY THAT YOUR MIND CAN BE THINKING ABOUT SECONDARY MATTERS AS THOUGH THEY ARE REAL, AND AT THE SAME TIME — CATCH.ON TO_WHAT’S GOING ON.
SO — THERE’S YOUR CHOICE.
X X X
AFTER ONE MAN WAS TOLD THAT HE WAS “ASLEEP, DELUDED AND ALL AROUND, IN-THE-DARK”, AND FINALLY BECAME SO CONVINCED, HE SAID:
“I DON’T MIND SO MUCH FOR ME, BUT I HAVE THIS OTHER PERSON IN ME THAT I’M CONCERNED ABOUT.”
…SO MUCH FOR THE NEED FOR A LIVING EXAMPLE OF WHAT IS TO, “BE IN THE TOTAL DAR
SEE THAT’S WHAT _. TAKES MOST PEOPLE SO-0-0 LONG TO EVER REALIZE, THE FACT THAT: ALL BY HIMSELF — A MAN’S OKAY,
BUT ONCE HE BECOMES TWO PEOPLE, HE’S LOCKED. IN THE BASEMENT.
SO WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT BE LIKE THE MAN MENTIONED ABOVE WHO SAID:
“I DON’T MIND SO MUCH BEING ASLEEP AS FAR AS JUST CONCERNS ME, IT’S THAT OTHER
GUY INSIDE OF ME THAT I’M WORRIED ABOUT.” -_NO,,YOU LOOK AFTER JUST YOU, AND TO HELL WITH THAT STRANGER INSIDE OF YOU. THAT’S HOW YOU FIND THE LIGHT.

20 18 3
OUR INNER WORLD IS NOT ONE OF DREAMS BECAUSE WE ARE “ASLEEP” -OUR INNER WORLD IS A WORLD OF DREAMS.
XXX
DON’T WASTE YOUR LIFE ATTEMPTING TO FIX SOMETHING THAT IS IMAGINARY FOR EVEN IF IT IS BROKEN — IT’S STILL IMAGINARY -…SO WHAT CAN ACTUALLY BE DONE ABOUT IT?!
X X X
CONFLICTING POLITICAL IDEAS DO NOT CAUSE MEN TO FIGHT —
THE NEED TO FIGHT CAUSES MEN TO HAVE CONFLICTING POLITICAL IDEAS WHICH THEY SAY DRIVES THEM TO FIGHT.
XXX
THE INNER LIFE OF MAN ACTS AS PORES THROUGH WHICH OUR ENVIRONMENT SEEPS OUT, BACK INTO ITSELF.
XXX
ONLY BY BELIEVING THAT YOU ARE FULLY RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR LIFE CAN YOU,
(AS THE MYSTICS CALL IT), “BE ASLEEP” — OR NORMAL, FOR THAT MATTER.
…(AND DO NOTE THAT THERE IS NO SUCH CREATURE AS A “SANE FATALIST” – LIFE
DOESN’T ALLOW IT.
…[AND ANOTHER THING: WHY DO YOU THINK THAT THE TWO MOST POPULAR,
ILL FOUNDED BELIEFS HUMAN HOLD ARE IN A “SUPREME DEITY”AND A “GREAT CONSPIRACY?] )

EVERYBODY GOES INTO A GREAT MYSTICAL TEMPLE TO HAVE THEIR MIND CHANGED, AND EVERYONE COMES OUT SAME AS THEY WENT IN.
THIS GETS REPEATED OVER AND OVER AGAIN AS LONG AS A PERSON IS TRYING TO AWAKEN RATHER THAN UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS.
A FRESH DEFINING OF OUR GOAL:
THE CESSATION OF ALL IRRELEVANT MENTAL ACTIVITY.
ONE MAN’S CURRENT TAKE ON THAT CERTAIN MATTER OF INTEREST TO US: “IF I DIDN’T HAVE THOUGHTS — I WOULDN’T BE TROUBLED,
AND IF I DIDN’T HAVE WORDS — I WOULDN’T HAVE THOUGHTS: — SO: THAT SETTLES IT: THE HEART OF THE PROBLEM IS WORDS;
SOLUTION: GET RID OF ALL TOTALLY UNNECESSARY WORDS IN MY BRAIN;
IF A WORD, FOR THE SENTENCE IT PROVOKES) DOES NOT CLEARLY SERVE MY._.. PHYSICAL SURVIVAL INTERESTS, THEN — OUT WITH IT! SOLUTION EXECUTED, SOLUTION,EXECUTED — PROBLEM SOLVED.
…(LEMMA AXE YA: You BELIEVE HE TOLD US EVERYTHING INVOLVED WITH THIS APPROACH?)

2018-5

A MAN WHO HAS ANY TRUST IN WORDS IS A MAN DOOMED.

2 0 18- 6
COMMON TO ALL SYSTEMS THAT CLAIM TO AWAKEN IS THE CRY THAT A MAN MUST “FREE HIMSELF FROM THE BONDAGE OF THE COLORS,. SIGHTS, SOUNDS, AND ATTRACTIONS OF THE PHYSICAL WORLD”, BUT THIS IS AN UNNECESSARILY CRUDE CONCEPTION OF THE MATTER,
WHAT A MAN MUST ULTIMATELY DO_IS UNDERSTAND THAT ALL SUCH SO-CALLED, “BONDAGES” COME FROM HIM NOT REALIZING THAT WHAT THOUGHTS PASS THROUGH A_MAN
HAVE NO BEARING ON THE LIFE HE ACTUALLY LEADS,
AND ARMED WITH SUCH UNDERSTANDING
NO.SIGHT, NO SMELL, NO .WORD, NO TRINKET HAS THE APPARENT REALITY NECESSARY TO HOLD THE MIND CAPTIVE.
ALL IN ALL: IF A MAN RECOGNIZES THE THROUGH SILLINESS OF THE MIND,
AND ALL OF THE SECONDARY MATTERS THAT IT CONJURES, THEN NOTHING ABOUT IT TO HIM MATTERS,
WHERE IS THE NEED TO FRET AND STRUGGLE WHEN THE PRISON IS SEEN TO BE SMOKE?!
…WAIT, HOLD UP) BEFORE WE PART, MAY I BE BLUNT:
A_MAN WHO BELIEVES THAT HE IS BEING HELD CAPTIVE, OR_ON_THE OTHER HAND
IS SOMEHOW BEING EXCLUDED FROM SOMETHING IMPORTANT,
IS
A
FOOL.
…A RATHER ROUTINE ONE, BUT A FOOL NONETHELESS.
(WELL! – YOU SAID I COULD BE BLUNT!)
OKAY, PROVE ME WRONG: Go FIND A PLACE WHERE THERE IS NO ENVIRONMENT
AND WHEN THERE — TELL ME WHO YOU ARE. Do YOU GET EVEN A WHIFF OF THE TRICK?,
WITHOUT WHAT THE MIND PERCEIVES OF AS YOUR “ENVIRONMENT”, THE MIND WOULD
FIND NO..”YOU”. ERGO: “You” CAN NEVER.,”FREE” YOURSELF FROM THE WORLD, ONLY FROM
TWP MPAITAI Tlinctrim TWAT vnil ANn TT ARE SEPARATE.

2018-7

ALL RIGHT THEN,
WHO’S UP TO REALIZING THAT
EVERY WORD YOU SPEAK,
EVERY THOUGHT YOU THINK
ALL REINFORCE THE BLINDING IMPRESSION THAT YOU HAVE A “YOU” THAT IS DISTINCT FROM
EVERYTHING AROUND YOU.
NOTE: MEN WITH THE STRONGEST SENSE OF THEM SELF AS SEPARATE FROM THEIR ENVIRONMENT ARE THOSE WHOSE FOOTPRINTS SHOW MOST LARGE ON THE HISTORY OF MAN,
BUT ALSO NOTE: SUCH MEN NEVER CATCH ON TO WHAT’S GOING ON,
ALL AROUND THEM,
AND ALL. INSIDE THEM WHICH IS ALL THE SAME…
AND ALL BEYOND THEIR GRASP
NOW ARE YOU UP TO FACING IT:
EVERYTHING YOU SAY AND EVERYTHING YOU THINK
KEEPS YOU FACED IN THE WRONG DIRECTION TO EVER SEE WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON, EVERYTHING YOU THINK AND EVERYTHING YOU SAY, WHEN NOT UNDERSTOOD TO BE MEANINGLESS TRIFLES,
SUPPORTS THE MENTAL SENSATION THAT YOU – AND YOUR BLESSED THOUGHTS –
ARE SEPARATE FROM YOUR ENVIRONMENT.
HERE IS THE TRUE MUTHER OF ALL IGNORANCE-OF-ONESELF.
OKAY, I DON’T WANNA END THIS ON SUCH A SOLEMN, POMPOUS SOUNDING NOTE:
NONE OF WHAT I’VE JUST SAID HAS ANY SIGNIFICANCE TO A MAN-WHO’S CAUGHT ON TO THE ENTIRE SILLINESS, AND LACK OF SIGNIFICANCE THAT 99% OF ALL THOUGHTS & WORDS HAVE’ IN THE LIFE OF A.MAN.
(THE PERCENTAGE GIVEN COULD BE OFF BY .AS MUCH.AS,HALF A POINT.
…IT VARIES FROM MAN TO MAN…I’M SURE YOU UNDERSTAND.)
2018-8

HE. WHO TO WORDS GIVES ANY WEIGHT
BELONGS IN A JENNY CRAIG’S FOR RETARDS.

2018-9
ORDINARY PEOPLE NEVER CATCH ON TO WHAT THINKING’S ALL ABOUT—
AND WITH THOSE TRYING TO AWAKEN ..WELL, THE SITUATION’S EVEN WORSE.

2018-10
THERE WAS ONCE A MAN WHO HAD AN ANNOYING “ILLNESS”…
…WHICH HE DISCOVERED HE COULD CURE….FOR HIMSELF….AT
….WHICH HE INITIALLY DID,
(AND HERE’S THE WEIRD PART).
EVEN THOUGH HE DID NOT LIKE HAVING THE NON FATAL MALADY,
AND IN SPITE OF HIM KNOWING HOW TO STOP IT,
HE WOULD_STILL SOME TIMES-BEHAVE-IN. A_WAY THAT HE KNEW WOULD CAUSE
THE ANNOYANCE TO RETURN.
ARE WE TO CONCLUDE THAT THE MAN IS SIMPLY A PATHOPHILE’1

2011-11
ONE MAN’S SCRUTINY OF THE VOICE OF CONSCIOUSNESS IN HIS HEAD
FIRST LEAD HIM TO CONCLUDE:
“IT IS NOT SOMETHING SEPARATE FROM ME — THE VOICE IS ME.”,
BUT SOME TIME LATER HIS STUDY BROUGHT HIM TO A DIFFERENT CONCLUSION:
“IT IS ME — THE VOICE AND I ARE ONE AND THE SAME.”,
BUT HIS MOST RECENT REALIZATION OF THE SITUATION DIFFERS STILL:
“IT IS NOT EVEN “ME” THAT IS MAKING THE OBSERVATIONS AS TO WHAT
IS OR IS NOT ME.”
XXX
TAKE THIS QUESTION WITH YOU AS YOU ATTEMPT TO STUDY YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS: “BESIDES ITS VALUE FOR SURVIVAL: OF WHAT SPECIFIC USE IS CONSCIOUSNESS?”
…WAS IT EVER INTENDED TO ENGAGE IN, “SELF REFLECTION”?, IN THE STUDY OF ITSELF? …IF NOT, THAT WOULD CERTAINLY EXPLAIN A LOT.

2018-12
ONE MAN SAID: HI MAY NOT BE A TIME BOMB, BUT I HAVE THE MATERIALS IN ME TO BE ONE’`’
AND HIS FIRST TWIN BROTHER RESPONDED: “I MAY BE IN CAPTIVITY,
BUT I HAVE THE PLANS FOR ESCAPE WITHIN ME.”, WHICH PROMPTED TWIN NUMBER THREE
TO SAY: “I MAY BE A STRANGER TO MYSELF, BUT AT LEAST I HAVE THE STRANGER WITHIN ME
AND JUST THEN THEIR MOTHER CAME INTO THE ROOM AND STATED:
“I MAY NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT ANY OF THIS MEANS, AND I AM MUCH DELIGHTED THEREBY.
MAY NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT ANY OF THIS MEANS, BUT I NO LONGER CARE.
I MAY NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT ANY OF THIS MEANS, BUT IT IS ALL WITHIN ME ANYWAY,
SO WHETHER I UNDERSTAND IT OR NOT IS IRRELEVANT,
FOR SINCE I’VE CAUGHT ON TO WHAT’S GOING ON
I REALIZE THAT NO INTERNAL EXPLOSION CAN RENT THE VEIL ‘TWEEN A MAN,
AND THE ENVIRONMENT, AND FURTHERMORE THAT
IT IS ONLY FROM THE ENVIRONMENT THAT EXPLOSIVE MATERIALS ARE AVAILABLE.
I SEE NOW THAT TO ALTER ONE’S CONSCIOUSNESS OF BEING ALIVE AND APPARENTLY TRAPPED IN BEING ONE’S SELF
CAN ONLY SUCCEED IF THE CELL WALL SEPARATING THE ORGANISM, (MAN), FROM
HIS ENVIRONMENT, (MAN’S ETERNAL MOTHER), WILL -7 !GIVE! JUST A LITTLE.
…AND THAT NOT BEING LIKELY, THE ONLY OTHER.POSSIBILITY IS FOR THE ORGANISM TO GAIN A ,DIRECT UNDERSTANDING OF ITS RELATIONSHIP TO ITS ENVIRONMENT,
WHICH IS AFTER ALL, NO “RELATIONSHIP” AT ALL — THEY ARE ONE AND THE SAME.”, AND AS SHE PAUSED FOR BREATH, TWIN SON NUMBER ONE ASKED:
“IF I COULD SEE THAT ME AND MY ENVIRONMENT ARE A SEAMLESS WHOLE WOULD I THEN
BE “ENLIGHTENED” AND SHE REPLIED: “WHEN A MAN UNDERSTANDS THAT THERE IS NOT
THE.SLIGHTEST DISTINCTION BETWEEN HIM AND EVERYTHING AROUND HIM THERE THEN
NO DIFFERENCE IN HIM BETWEEN BEING ENLIGHTENED OR NOT ENLIGHTENED. ONLY THOSE THERE KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS.”, THEN SHE LEFT THE ROOM;
JUST REPEAT TO YOURSELF: “I MAY NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT ANY OF THIS MEANS,
BUT THAT MAY BE BECAUSE IT DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING.”(KEEP REPEATING UNTIL IT DOES.)

2018-13
ALTHOUGH MEN CLAIM THAT “FACTS” ARE OF SUPREME IMPORTANCE TO THEIR LIVES THIS IS NOT QUITE SO, FOR WITHOUT AN EMOTIONAL, HUMAN REACTION THERETO, FACTS HAVE NO INHERENT, DISTINCT POWER, (FOR INSTANCE):
IF IT WERE SUDDENLY AND CONCLUSIVELY SHOWN THAT AS A MATTER OF
COLD, HARD FACT, MEN HAVE NO “FREEDOM-OF-WILL”,
THIS FACT, (ACCORDING TO THOSE WHO HAVE SERIOUSLY PONDERED SUCH A
THEORETICAL POSSIBILITY), ‘
WOULD INSTANTLY AND TOTALLY CHANGE FOREVER MENS’ VERY CONCEPT OF WHAT IT IS*TO BE
ALIVE AND HUMAN;
AND YET IF A MAN HAD NO EMOTIONAL, PERSONAL REACTION TO SAID FACT,
IT WOULD HAVE NO. EFFECT ON HIM.
UNLESS YOU HAD SOME FEELING ABOUT HEARING IT SAID THAT, “TOMORROW YOU WILL DIE.” THE STATEMENT HAS NO MORE MEANING THAN, “TOMORROW BANANAS WILL BE ON SALE.”
DO YOU FULLY REALIZE JUST HOW MOMENTARILY ILL AND OVER-HEATED YOU HAVE TO BE TO STILL BELIEVE THAT THERE IS CERTAIN INFORMATION TO BE HAD THAT IS NECESSARY FOR YOUR ULTIMATE AWAKENING.

2018-14
THERE ARE NO INSTRUCTIONS AVAILABLE FOR ESCAPE FROM A PRISON IN A LAND THAT ITSELF IS IMAGINARY,
FOR NO MATTER HOW REAL MAY SEEM THE PRISON IT IS PERFORCE, ALSO IMAGINARY.
XXX
ALL METHODS INTENDED TO “AWAKE, IMPROVE, EXPAND” THE MIND ARE FOOLISH IN THAT THEY AIM TO EFFECT THAT WHICH HAS NO RELEVANCE TO BEGIN WITH.
XXX
THE ROUTINE MANIFESTATIONS OF CONSCIOUSNESS IS LIKE A LIGHT THAT
THE NERVOUS SYSTEMS KEEPS ON TO SHOW THAT ITS ALARM SYSTEM IS IN ACTIVE MODE.

EUPHEMISM UPDATE: THE TERM, “SPIRITUAL HUNGER” IS A FANCY WAY OF DENOTING, “BOREDOM”.

FOR THOSE WHO ARE JUST BEGINNING TO REALIZE HOW THE MIND WORKS USING THOUGHTS
WHEREBY THERE CAN BE NO UP WITHOUT DOWN, NO NOW WITHOUT LATER,
AND NO ME WITHOUT YOU,
HERE’S SOME CHEER UP NEWS:
CATCHING ON TO WHAT’S GOING ON
IS THE ONLY MENTAL EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE FOR A MAN THAT HAS NO DOWN SIDE.

20 1 8- 1 7
THE URGE TO AWAKEN IS LIKE AN ACTOR IN A MOVIE, PLAYING HIS ROLE AS WRITTEN, BUT ALL THE WHILE WISHING HE HAD ANOTHER.
THE WAY BY WHICH A MAN’S SENSE OF “I” DEVELOPS IS NOT THAT DISSIMILAR.
GIVING THE MATTER NO CAREFUL SCRUTINY, MEN BELIEVE THAT THEIR THINKING IS DEPENDENT ON THEM
WHEREAS THEY, (THEIR “THEM”) IS DEPENDENT ON THEIR THINKING.
WITHOUT A NEAR-IMPOSSIBLE STUDY A MAN BELIEVES: “I THINK, SO-&-S0.”. WHEN IN FACT IT IS THE “S0-&-S0 THOUGHTS” PASSING THRU HIS BRAIN WHICH ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR HIM EVEN HAVING THE.SENSATION OF HAVING AN “I”.
X X X
THOUGHTS ARE A NERVOUS SYSTEM REFLECTION OF EITHER THE ORGANISM’S REACTION TO EXTERNAL CIRCUMSTANCES OR ELSE REFLECTIONS OF ITS OWN INTERNAL ONES.
THE MORE THAT YOU ARE A “THINKER” RATHER THAN A “DOER”, THE MORE IS THE LATTER SO WITH YOU.
ALSO: THE MORE THAT YOU THINK, PONDER, MUSE, REFLECT & DAY DREAM, THE GREATER SEEMS THEIR SIGNIFICANCE.
…(THIS CREATES AN EXTREMELY SUBTLY CAPTIOUS SITUATION IN ONE’S HEAD.)

2 0 1 8- 1 8
IN THE PRIVACY OF A CLOSET
ONE MAN TOLD WHOEVER WAS IN THERE WITH HIM:
“I HAVE THIS TO SAY ABOUT PEOPLE WANTING TO “AWAKEN”:
NINETY-NINE PER CENT OF WHAT GOES ON IN A MAN’S MIND HAS NO RELEVANCE
TO THE LIFE HE ACTUALLY LEADS — AND,
I’M NINETY-NINE PER CENT CERTAIN THAT THE AWAKENING THING IS MOSTLY IN THE MIND.”
SHE THEN OPENED THE DOOR AND LEFT.)

2018- 19
THE WAY I SEE IT. THERE ARE ONLY TWO WAYS TO ACHIEVE ENLIGHTENMENT:
EITHER: SEPARATE THE MIND FROM THE BRAIN.— OR: UNDERSTAND WHAT. THE MIND IS.

2018— 2 0
ONE MAN SAID: “To ME LIFE IS LIKE.A JOKE–
WITHOUT AN IDENTIFIABLE PUNCH LINE._ 

2018-21
ANY MAN WHO SEEKS ENLIGHTENMENT FOR ANY REASON OTHER THAN TO . MENTALLY’ ENTERTAIN HIMSELF
IS A FOOL, 

20 1822
IN RELAYING A RECENT EXPERIENCE, A MAN SO DESCRIBED:
“I WALKED INTO THE TENT AND FOUND A THREE RING CIRCUS.
IN ONE RING WERE THE “FREE-WILLERS”, IN ANOTHER WERE THE FATALISTS,
AND IN THE THIRD RING STOOD A CLOWN.
I STOPPED, AND FORCED WIDER OPEN MY EYES AND INTENSIFIED MY GAZE,
AND SUDDENLY MY HEAD BECAME EXTRAORDINARY OPEN AND CALM,
AND THE SIGHT OF THESE THREE RINGS WITH THEIR INHABITANTS
CAUSED ME TO REALIZE WHAT MAN’S LIFE IN THE MENTAL TENT IS REALLY ALL ABOUT.”
2018-23

THERE WAS ONCE A MAN WHO HEARD AN ANNOYING VOICE IN HIS HEAD WHICH HE COULDN’T GET RID OF.
THEN HE DISCOVERED A SECRET MANEUVER:
HE’D LET THE VOICE GET ATTACHED-TO, AND YAKING-ON-ABOUT
SOMETHING OUTSIDE OF THE MAN, (WAS WAS SIMPLICITY ITSELF),
AND THEN WHEN IT WAS SO ENGROSSED IN ITS OWN WORDS
THE MAN WOULD TURN HIS ATTENTION AWAY, AND THE VOICE WOULD NO LONGER BOTHER HIM.
Do TAKE SERIOUS NOTE THAT NO ONE SHOULD EVER CONCOCT A SYSTEM FOR AWAKENING
BASED ON THIS….IN FACT, IT’S PROBABLY SAFEST IF YOU JUST FORGET I MENTIONED IT.

2018-24
MEN, (EVEN OUR BEST OF MINDS), CANNOT DECIDE WHETHER THE UNIVERSE IS INFINITE, OR NOT AND FOR THE SIMPLE REASON THAT “INFINITE”IS JUST A WORD MENS’ MINDS MADE UP AND WHICH NO ONE UNDERSTANDS….SINCE IT HAS NO MEANING….OUTSIDE OF IT BEING A WORD THAT MEN MADE UP.

2018-25
THE FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS
INSIDE OF YOU ARE PART OF MY ENVIRONMENT/ AND MINE/ YOURS. IF YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHAT’S GOING. ON
YOU FORGET THIS AT YOUR GREAT EXPENSE,

2018-26
ONE NAME FOR TRYING-TO-AWAKEN IS: A HAND ATTEMPTING TO GRAB ITSELF.
OR, BEHIND DOOR NUMBER TWO IT SAYS:
THE PROBLEM IS THAT WHEN YOU’RE THINKING YOU CAN’T BE AWARE OF WHAT THINKING IS.

2 118 – 2 7
ONE MAN MUSED: “I GUESS ANYBODY COULD UNDERSTAND THE MIND JUST BY WATCHING IT IF YOU COULD DO IT WITHOUT THINKING ABOUT IT.”
“WELL HELL!”, SAID ANOTHER GUY, “BASED ON THAT
I’D BE AWAKE IF I COULD JUST STOP THINKING ABOUT HOW ASLEEP I AM.”
AND A THIRD CHAP SAID: “HEY-Y-Y, DON’T GET ME STARTED.”
2018-28

You SEE,
THE MISCONCEPTION COMES FROM THE.FACT THAT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THE MIND WE DON’T REALIZE THAT IT IS THE MIND TALKING.
2018-29

To “BE ASLEEP” IS TO BE TOO WORDY BY HALF;
TO BE HALF AWAKE — AND STILL SPEAK OF SLEEP IS TO BE TOO WORDY BY ONE HUNDRED PER CENT.

2 0 18 – 3 0
EVERYONE WHO PONDERS THE MATTER COMES TO THINK THAT THERE IS DEFINITELY, “SOMETHING” — BEHIND THE MIND;
SOMETHING, (PHYSICAL OR OTHERWISE), THAT CAN BE IDENTIFIED AS THE SOURCE OF _
MAN’S THOUGHTS.
You CAN BE A NEUROLOGIST, A PSYCHOLOGIST, OR A MYSTIC AND SO THINK, FOR “THINKING” REQUIRES NO EFFORT, COSTS.A_MAN NOTHING, AND NEVER PRODUCES DISTURBING RESULTS.
HERE’S WHAT DO:
SEARCH FOR WHAT’S BEHIND YOUR MIND’S BELIEF THAT SOMETHING MENTALLY CONCEIVABLE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MIND.
ONLY A MAN WHO CAN,FROM TIME TO TIME,
FREE HIMSELF FROM THE TENTACLES OF THOUGHT CAN SUCCESSFULLY PROSECUTE THIS INQUIRY.

2 0 1 8- 3 1
ALTHOUGH IT GOES UNANALYZED,
WHAT MEN AFTER THE FACT WILL REFER TO AS THEIR “DECISION MAKING I”, OR MENTAL PROCESSES IS A EUPHEMISM FOR
“GENETIC GENERATED HABIT.”
A VIEW THAT STAYS ENTIRELY OFF OF MOST MENS’ RADAR SCREEN
IS THE ONE WHICH REVEALS HIS ENVIRONMENT TO BE AS MUCH A “DECISION MAKER” AS ANY ACTIVITY WITHIN HIM.

2018-32
As OPPOSED TO ONE OF MY MODELS OF CONSCIOUSNESS BEING COMPOSED OF A VOICE, AND AN AWARENESS OF THE VOICE,
IT COULD ALTERNATIVELY BE SEEN AS THE AWARENESS OF THE VOICE BEING A PRODUCT OF THE VOICE.

2018-33
THERE IS ONE PARTICULAR, UNREALIZED DREAM INTO WHICH EVERY MAN CONTINUALLY FALLS,
ONLY TO LATER BE AROUSED THEREFROM,
ONLY LATER INTO WHICH TO LAPSE AGAIN,
THEN TO EMERGE, THEN’ RE-FALL, AND SO ON THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE,
AND THE ASPECT OF IT. ALL: THAT HIDES A SUCCULENT. INFO FEAST IS THE FACT THAT,
IN SPITE OF HOW IT STRIKES MEN OTHERWISE,
THEIR CONDITION WHEN AROUSED FROM DREAMING IS NO DIFFERENT THAN IT WAS
BEFORE THEY FELL THEREIN,
OR, (IF IT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER), PUT ANOTHER WAY:
AT THE MENTAL LEVEL AT WHICH MYSTICS,(WHO.HAVEN’T CAUGHT ON),STRUGGLE THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE IN THE STATES OF”BEING ASLEEP” AND”BEING AWAKE”,
…OH, ALL RIGHT,
SOMEONE IN THE BACK OF THE ROOM JUST SAID THAT THE OTHER VERSION DIDN’T
MAKE THEM FEEL AT ALL BETTER — SO, HERE’S ONE MORE TAKE ON IT:
WHEN YOU HAVEN’T YET CAUGHT ON TO WHAT’S GOING ON
EVERYTHING, (AND I DO-DO MEAN – EVERYTHING!) —
IS MORE COMPLICATED THAN IT IS ONCE YOU HAVE GOT A,GRIP ON IT.
THE NORMAL NATURE OF THE MIND IS TO BREAK.UP THE COMPLEXITIES OF THE. EXTERNAL WORLD AND MAKE ITA.(IN OUR THINKING),SEEM SIMPLER THAN IT IS FOR THE OBVIOUS PURPOSES OF BETTER UNDERSTANDING IT, AND BEING ABLE TO MANIPULATE IT, BUT WHEN THE MIND TURNS ITS ATTENTION ON MAN’S INTERNAL WORLD — ITSELF — THE JUST NOTED PROCEDURE GETS REVERSED, AND THE SIMPLE IS MADE COMPLEX.
SUCH IS THE MENTAL FIELD UPON WHICH EVERY MAN COMMENCES HIS SEARCH TO FIND OUT —
— WHAT’S GOING ON. GOOD LUCK.

2018-34
HE WHO RESPONDS TO THE SOUNDS OF GHOSTS RENDERS HIMSELF UNREAL.
…(I TRUST NO ONE IS OF THE MISTAKEN BELIEF THAT I HAVE CHANGED THE SUBJECT FROM THAT OF THE WORKINGS OF THE MIND.)

2018-35
WHEN ORDINARY PEOPLE SPEAK OF “SEEKING HAPPINESS”
THE HAPPINESS ALWAYS INVOLVES OTHER PEOPLE, (EVEN IF INDIRECTLY,
FOR INSTANCE):
IF THEY SAY THEY WOULD BE HAPPY IF THEY HAD SUCH-&-SUCH AN OBJECT,
IT IS NOT THE OBJECT ITSELF THAT WOULD BRING THEM HAPPINESS, BUT RATHER
OTHER PEOPLE’S RESPONSE TO THEM HAVING IT.
SEEKING ENLIGHTENMENT, AND FINALLY DISCOVERING WHAT’S GOING ON
IS THE ONLY FORM OF HAPPINESS THAT DOES NOT REQUIRE OTHER PEOPLE.
THE KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT’S GOING ON IS NOT SOMETHING THAT IS”OUT THERE”IN LIFE; IT EXISTS ONLY IN THE MIND OF THE MAN WHO KNOWS, AND THUS CANNOT BE SHOWN TO OTHERS

2018-36
THE QUESTION HAS BEEN PROPOSED:
“DOES EXISTENCE HAVE ANY REAL.,”MEANING”, IN ANY REAL SENSE OF THE WORD?”, AND THIS REMAINS UNANSWERABLE UNLESS .A MAN. KNOWS WHETHER OR NOT
THE WORD, “SENSE” HAS ANY MEANING (IN A “MEANINGFUL SENSE”).
OR PUT MORE DIRECTLY, “RIGHT AT’CHA”: YOU CAN’T UNDERSTAND THE MIND WITHOUT AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE MIND.
X X
A COMMON ASSERTION IS THAT NO ONE CAN BE HYPNOTIZED UNLESS THEY ARE
WILLING TO BE HYPNOTIZED —
ERGO EXACT-O, DE FACTO, JACK-0:
WE ONLY LIVE IN IGNORANCE OF WHAT WE ARE BECAUSE OF OUR WILLINGNESS TO DO SO.
MEN CONSENT TO BEING SUBMERGED IN SELF DECEPTION EITHER BECAUSE THEY WANNA BE, OR ELSE ARE SATISFIED TO BE;
…IN FACT, MOST ACTIVELY ENCOURAGE THEIR ILLUSIONS ABOUT THEMSELVES BY THE WAYS THEY ACT, SPEAK AND THINK,
AND MORE SPECIFICALLY, AS CONCERNS THE WAYS THEY THINK
AND THINK-THEY-FEEL ABOUT THEM SELF.
WHAT SORTS OF RESULTS ARISE FROM SUCH CONDITIONS? — FOR ONE:
ONLY A TOTALLY MECHANICAL MAN WILL INSIST THAT HE IS NOT MECHANICAL — OR:
ONLY THE PREDESTINED DISAVOW PREDESTINATION — OR:
ONLY THOSE STILL ASLEEP & IN THE DARK WILL SAY THAT THEY ARE AWAKE & SEETHE_LIGHT

IN A PAPER WHICH WAS NEVER PUBLISHED)
A CERTAIN DOCTOR OF CLEARTOPOTRY,
(A DESIGNATION FOR WHICH NO INFORMATION SURVIVES),
MADE THE FOLLOWING CLAIM, BASED ON HIS INDEPENDENT RESEARCH:
“THE PERSISTENT STATE OF, “KNOWING-WHAT’S-GOING-ON”
CAN RESULT IN THE INEXPLICABLE CONDITION WHEREIN
WHEN THE KNOWER’S PHONE RINGS
ITS ALLURE IS FILTERED OUT.”

20 1 8 38
FOR A MAN TO SAY AND BELIEVE THAT: “I THINK.”, THAT “I AM DOING THE THINKING.” HE MUST INVENT AN ACTIVE DOER IN HIS MIND TO SUPERIMPOSE ON THE PASSIVE ACTIVITY THAT HIS. THINKING ACTUALLY IS.

A FATHER SAID TO A SON CONCERNING A CERTAIN MATTER:
“You NEED TO STAY’ RIGHT ON TOP OF IT —
YOU’VE GOT TO REALLY — STICK-WITH-IT!”,
AND THE LAD RESPONDED:
“You MEAN, “STICK-WITH” — TRYING TO WAKE UP?!”,
“No.”, REPLIED THE OLD MAN,
“WITH SEEING THRU THE ILLUSION THAT THERE IS SOMETHING TO STICK TO.”
THE RIVER IS ALWAYS THERE,
WHETHER TODAY YOU WRITE ODES TO IT,
• OR TOMORROW YOU DENY ITS REALITY;
THE RIVER IS ALWAYS. THERE,AND YOUR OPINIONATED RECOGNITION OF ITS EXISTENCE IS IRRELEVANT AT BEST, AND AT WORST,(FOR A FEW).. IS FUEL FOR CONTINUED, MISDIRECTED EFFORT
“STICK WITH WHAT YOU KNOW.”, INSISTED THE ELDER, “BUT I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING.”, PROTESTED THE SON. “THEN STICK WITH THAT.”, HE REPLIED.
ALTHOUGH FEW CAN READ THE SIGN,•
“STICKING WITH,”KNOWING-NOTHING”” IS THE RIGHT DIRECTIONS TO THE RIVER.

To BE NORMAL, FOR “ASLEEP”, AS MYSTICS CALL.. IT),
A MAN MUST HOLD A GENERAL NOTION OF THE_CONDITIONS OUTSIDE OF HIM- AS BEING
RATHER BRUTISH AND STUPID —
— AN ENVIRONMENT TO BE CONSTANTLY CHALLENGED AND OVER COME BY
THE MIND INSIDE OF HIM.

A GUY SHOWED UP AT THE DOOR PLAYING THIS GAME:
“I AM NOT A TREE;
I AM NOT A CLOUD;
I AM NOT MY CONGRESSMAN, AND I AM NOT MY OWN “BAD NEWS”;
WHO AM I?”,
AND BEFORE YOU COULD REPLY HE SAID:
“I’M ALL OF THEM —
I JUST THINK THAT I’M NOT
WHEN I TALK ABOUT IT,”

MEN WHO PROFESS WE-HAVE FREEDOM OF WILL DO NOT COMPREHEND THE REALITY IN WHICH THEY LIVE,
AND THOSE WHO DENY IT, LIVE NEXT DOOR TO THEM.

A MAN WHO WAS TRYING TO EXPLAIN THE MIND WAS ASKED BY A LISTENER:
“COULD YOU MAKE WHAT YOU’RE SAYING – CLEARER AND MORE  PERCISE?”,
TO WHICH HE REPLIED:
“IF I DID SO IT WOULD NO LONGER BE ME SPEAKING, BUT RATHER — YOU THINKING.”
(WHICH, [IF YOU CAN HEAR], EXPLAINS THE MATTER NICELY.)

THE GRAND, VISCID FUN
OF NOT KNOWING WHAT’S GOING ON
IS THAT
YOU CAN IMAGINE THAT WHAT’S GOING ON IS ANYTHING YOUR MIND CAN CONJURE UP.
AH, THE GRAND —
THE TOTALLY GRAND, AND ENTIRELY CAPTIOUS FUN AND SPORT OF: “NOT-KNOWING-WHAT’S-GOING-ON.”
AND UPON HEARING THIS SAID, ONE MAN IMMEDIATELY OBJECTED: “WELL I DO NOT FIND IT TO BE ALL. THAT MUCH FUN!”,
WHICH INDICATES HIS POTENTIAL FOR EVENTUALLY CATCHING ON TO WHAT’S GOING ON.
“AH YES.”, RECALLED ONE MAN,
“WHAT SAD. TIMES IT WAS BACK WHEN I THOUGHT TIMES WERE SAD.”
AND AS LONG AS WE’RE IN THIS VERBAL/MENTAL AREA, A REMINDER:
As LONG AS YOU ENTERTAIN OPINIONATED VIEWS OF WHAT’S GOING ON IN LIFE YOU STILL HAVEN’T. CAUGHT,ON TO WHAT’S GOING ON.
THE VOICE IN THE BRAIN IS ALWAYS READY TO SPEAK OUT ON MOST ANY MATTER — BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN THAT WHAT IT SAYS, MATTERS.

ONE MAN IN AN ATTEMPT TO VISUALLY INDICATE THE INVISIBLE STRUGGLE IN WHICH
HE WAS ENGAGED DID THE FOLLOWING:
HE FIRST POINTED TO HIS HEAD, AND THEN TO HIS TV SET, AND SAID:
“IF IT’S NOT THIS”, (POINTING TO HIS HEAD),”IT’S THAT.” (POINTING TO THE TV),
THEN WENT ON, FIRST POINTING TO HIS HEAD, THEN HIS BOOKS, THEN HIS CDs,
THEN HIS COMPUTER AND EACH TIME, POINTING FIRST TO HIS HEAD, SAYING:
“IF IT’S NOT THIS”, (THEN POINTING TO THE NAMED,_PHYSICAL ITEMS) AND SAYING:
“IT’S THAT.” —
THEN IN A FINAL BURST OF SOME-SORT-OR-THE-OTHER,
HE RAISED HIS _VOICE TO A SHOUT,. DECLARING:
“AND IF IT’S NOT THIS — IT’S THAT.”, WHILE POINTING FIRST TO THE LEFT SIDE
OF HIS HEAD, AND THEN TO THE RIGHT.

ANOTHER DEFINITION OF “BEING AWAKE”:
A STATE WHEREIN NEITHER EXTERNAL CIRCUMSTANCES,
NOR THE INTERNAL ONES CAUSED BY THE VOICE
HAVE TOTALLY CAPTURED YOUR AWARENESS OF THE VOICE AND CIRCUMSTANCES.
TO BE “ENLIGHTENED” IS IN HAVING THE AWARENESS OF CONSCIOUSNESS EXERCISE SOME DEGREE OF INDEPENDENCE FROM THE VOICE.

NO ONE APPROACHES THE MIND WITH MORE GRAVITY THAN DO THOSE WANTING TO AWAKEN — AND NONE HAVE LESS CAUSE TO DO SO.
ALL SHANGRI-LA’S ARE IMPRESSIVE —
— UNTIL YOU FACE THE FACT THAT THEY ARE FICTIONS FROM SOMEONE’S MIND.
NO ONE TREATS THE PROPOSITION THAT MENTALLY, “MAN IS ASLEEP” SERIOUSLY SAVE THOSE WHO BELIEVE THEMSELVES ASLEEP.
TO RECAP:
NO ONE SEES MORE IMPORTANCE TO THE MIND THAN DO THOSE SEEKING ENLIGHTENMENT — AND NONE HAVE A GREATER NEED TO MORE CLOSELY SCRUTINIZE THE MATTER.

2018-48
WELL KNOWN IS THE NOTION OF, “FLEE OR FIGHT”
WHEREBY IS NOTED THAT CREATURES, (INCLUDING MAN) WILL
“FLEE” FROM PREDATORS,•WHICH ARE OF A DIFFERENT SPECIES,
AND “FIGHT” WHEN IT IS ONE’S OWN SPECIES WHO IS COMPETING FOR RESOURCES.
QUESTION: How MIGHT THIS ALLEGORICALLY APPLY TO”TRYING TO AWAKEN”? …IN SO DOING ARE WE ATTEMPTING TO FLEE, ESCAPE-FROM FORCES THAT ARE NOT OF OUR SPECIES — NOT OUR”KIND”,
AND AT THE SAME TIME, “FIGHTING” AGAINST INTERNAL FORCES THAT ARE NATIVE TO OUR SPECIES.

2018-49
FOR A MAN WHOSE CAUGHT-ON TO WHAT’S GOING ON
THE IDEA THAT YOU ARE EITHER AWAKE OR ASLEEP HAS BECOME IRRELEVANT.
OR, (IF IT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER) PUT ANOTHER WAY: To A MAN WHO IS AWAKE
THE QUESTION OF WHETHER HE IS ASLEEP OR AWAKE IS MEANINGLESS.
…(WHICH VERSION DO_YOU LIKE BESTS AND IF SO WHY NOT?!)

NONE TEND TO FEEL MORE SEPARATE FROM THE WORLD AROUND THEM THAN THOSE DESIRING ENLIGHTENMENT -.7.. AND NONE PAY A BIGGER PRICE,

A CERTAIN MAN WHO SPOKE MUCH ON A CERTAIN MATTER
ONE DAY SUMMED UP ALL HE HAD TO SAY ON THE SUBJECT WITH THESE WORDS: “IF YOU KNEW WHAT WAS GOING ON .
YOU COULDN’T LIVE LIKE YOU DO.`’
