Anatomy and physiology of life Business mind. Poetry and prose from the heart. The free mind of a human god!

Past your own mortality.

 

When you experience something, when you learn something, when you hear something, when you read anything at all; but, especially when anybody tells you anything, ask more questions, inquire into the essence of the information you received, be skeptical and curious–more like the child who is always asking questions to his parents to understand more and more.

This is the secret to expand the mind and always keep it young and energetic, because as long as the mind is kept in awe and seeking new information, and discovering mysteries and growing in curiosity, then your attention remains in amazement and focused on discovering things for itself.


While the mind is kept like this, in amazement of life and discovering things for itself, then the miracle of the depth of life reaches your very conscience, and you feel new each moment, a rebirth each moment, and you appreciate everything with joy and without fear.

Because for the mind to have fear it must fall prey of delusions and worries; but if the mind is kept in amazement and discovery there is no room in it for any fear. 

Fear, confusion, worry, stress, appear because the mind is following your situations, the pressures you feel, your ego activities, the blind acceptance of information and the influence of anything which society puts in front of you.

This is to see past your own mortality, because the mind in its delusional ego creates growing old and fear of death; however, if the mind is new each moment then you have no fear of growing old or of somehow decaying psychologically to an idea attached to death.

The wise man questions.

“The sanity of society is a balance of a thousand insanities.”  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson; American essayist, philosopher, society critic, lecturer, and poet.


There is no bigger fool than the fool who does not want to see, than the fool who follows the carrot society dangles in his face.

Without questioning, without self-exploration, without a fresh perspective one cannot see reality; hence, one’s mind remains stubborn and chained to a blinding society who does not care about the freedom or happiness of the individual, but a society that only cares about the established patterns, old traditions, ways of living which sell and increase its own power.

The said human being then, chained and subconsciously subdued, quite often dull and depressed, with certain bouts of an anxious and overtaxed mind, begins to accept the crooked “reality” this idiotic and enslaving society has cast upon him, just like a very strong spell he lives every day as he wakes up.

And so, he is now dismal and his narrow mind is the world this society has created for him, where he sees only the work he hates, where he sees no deeper understanding, where he knows only struggle, pain and pleasure, but no happiness beyond that.


To awaken from all this is to question all this, every little detail; thus, question even what you know right now to be true, question more and more, never stop.

The wise man knows that he knows nothing, because the wise man knows that he will always be questioning and exploring as long as a breath remains in his body.

Be the wise man, not the fool, the slave, the ignorant servant who follows the carrot dangled in his face….

“The environment that we call society is created by past generations; we accept it, as it helps us to maintain our greed, possessiveness, illusion.”  ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti.

The answer is inside the question.

“The majority is never right.  Never, I tell you!  That’s one of these lies in society that no free and intelligent man can help rebelling against.  Who are the people that make up the biggest proportion of the population — the intelligent ones or the fools?”  ~ Henrik Ibsen; Norwegian playwright, theater director, and poet.

In a world where every decision is made for us, where religious pressures and society’s demands are waiting in every corner–i.e., you have to be in a romantic relationship to feel loved, you must read the scriptures and pray in order to be a good person, you have to watch TV to be like the rest and be informed about the world, you ought to read books to fill your mind with knowledge so you are intelligent like others, you need this and that to become this and that, and the rest of the nonsense. 
But with all this confusion and demands going on, how can you look for truth and answers to actually better your life…??

The problem here is not doing all these things, but the problem is what these things do to the mind.  The human mind tends to obsess or fix over the things it does, the mind’s world is all these things it does, all these things it experiences; so whenever a problem arises it looks for answers or solutions in these routines–in books, in religions, in relationships, in work, etc. etc.

But this search is not something reliable, because it brings out more questions and dilemmas.  What is God…??  Where does he/she live…?? Where would I find him/her…??  How should a saint behave…??  How am I to behave to be morally conscious…??  How to balance public life and personal life…??  The mind then is in confusion, because whatever the answers found, there is always more opinions, more philosophies, more ideas, and so deeper question arise… and more… and more…

So, the answers are rarely found in the outer life, in the outward seeking; but the answer lies within you, because the one asking questions is thought, your obsessive thinking; and behind thought there is silence, self-awareness where no questions exist.  Questions are brought on by confusion, and behind your thoughts, in that precise and calm essence of being, is you, the answer of all the questions your ego can fabricate.

It is only in this very self-awareness where you find no confusion and no anxiety, because here there are no questions…

“Being an intellectual creates a lot of questions and no answers.” ~ Janis Joplin; American singer and songwriter.
