Mind Claims It Writes a Script of Talk
The following recordings are from Jan’s final years, when his voice was diminished and he spoke in a low whisper. Some listeners may find these tapes hard to listen to, or difficult to understand. Thus, as another option, transcripts are being made and will be posted.
Otherwise, turn up the volume and enjoy! Those who carefully listened to Jan during this period consider that he spoke plainly and directly to the matter at hand, “pulling out all the stops,” as he understood that these were to be his last messages to his groups, and to posterity.

Notes by TK
Humans need to speak as instinctively as they need to breathe. There is an innate urge to talk. Therefore it is even more difficult to be an impartial observer of the words that come out of one’s mouth. Such observation will actually interfere with talk. Talk is unscripted; you don’t know what you’re saying until you hear what comes out of your mouth; you don’t know what you’re thinking until you hear it in your head. But the mind wants to take credit for generating thought when it doesn’t. The brain will claim it knows what it is going to think/say. (33:51) #3222

As he gave a sound kick to a rock in his path, a man’s mind was hit with the thought: “How will the truth-set-you-free if the truth turns out to be that you’re a prisoner?” — and then (being a real-deal-man) he laughed at the possibility: such being
the certain man’s conclusion to everything his consciousness says he thinks.
An e-mail just in from a reader:
“Sir: The more you explain this matter the more confused I become;
am I to assume this shows some progress?
The Great Work To Awaken; The March To Enlightenment;
The Struggle For Liberation, etc. All Fully Described,
And In Minute Detail.
“There’s only one brain and two of us.”
Any idea that in the classical sense, needs an apologist –
needs a hellava lot more than that.
Exasperation: The sure sign of torpidity.
Even when telephoning from home,
a truly civilized man will put on a suit and tie before making a business call.
“I may not be good enough to play actual jazz,
and I may be too pseudo hip to do lounge music, but by god there’s always fusion!”
So mused a consciousness (metaphorically).
A real-deal dog trainer can do his work while other people are talking –
but the true test is whether he can while HE is.
(“The answer is probably, No,” suggests one man. [He wasn’t you was he?])
A father told a son:
“For ninety-nine point nine per cent of those who once believed they want to wake-up to stay involved in any fashion in the pursuit, they must be part of a sizable group
that gives them social support in their activity.”
“The same as with any other of man’s non-essential doings?”
Any time a man starts talking about his duty in life,
rest assured that he is going to ask you to help him do something.
Being in unrealized confinement disorients a person in ways they can never perceive.
In another galaxy a local physicist has privately announced the discovery of
a previously unperceived force, which for the public’s consumption he has named the:
Yoo Who Force (but for his professional colleagues has given the more
scientifically correct title: The Well Hello There Principle.
Though not noticed by common man: all technology is happy –
which can’t be said for culture –
and what the man anxious to get-to-the-bottom-of-things can get from the
intense scrutiny of this, you couldn’t imagine.
It’s not only most of impossible for an eye to see itself —
but our eyes of consciousness do not even have an interest in doing so.
We have an eye that sees and an anti-eye that does not like what the eye sees —
but only one scope to look through.
Like a breath completely filling a lung, and the breath (or the lung, take your choice)
trying in near vain to comprehend the situation.
Q. & A. Time.
What is dumber than being merely dumb?
Becoming a bit less so and mentioning how you deserve all the credit.
(“Hey – that just sounds like the definition of an ordinary man.”)
“Well!” notes one chap, “Everybody says: ‘That’s not what they actually meant’
when we all know bloody otherwise.”
(This probably goes in the: Well, What Are We Going To Do About It file, huh?!)
A son asked a father:
“Is it possible had not one of the forefathers of our bloodline created the idea
of waking-up and the various activities that go along with it, that without it to think about, people like us would be driven bonkers by our leisure-time consciousness?”
“In this universe, who’s to say what’s NOT possible.”
(Down on the levee: some are waitin’ for the Ulysses S. Grant, and others are awaiting drugs.)
A reader sends this massage:
“It takes some nerve for you to publish stories supporting the idea that man’s
cultural institutions are all in-his-mind when that nervous-system-rebellion thing of yours has got to be the single greatest example of an incorporeal activity!”
Dear Sir: Thank you for your complimentary words.
In Re Formal Dress For The Dance.
Only a consciousness wrapped in moribund can be offended by the facts about itself.
The horny arrive early.
P.S. Trying to wake-up is not the prison.
