A CLEAR MIND IS HARD TO FIND

It’s all in your head.  If you didn’t think it, it wouldn’t be it. 

I live life with a clear mind, even while knowing most folks live their lives filled with delusions of conclusions–thinking things are this way or that way, running their lives with lies of belief and faith...unprovable fantastical stories.

If you want to deal accurately with people you have to know what they believe and have faith in.  You have to know what stories they tell themselves about life.

If you run into another person with a clear mind, it is a miracle.

People’s actions are motivated by what they believe, by what they have faith in; they are motivated by their programs, indoctrinations, brainwashings, traditions, cultures and societal norms. 

Almost no one I have ever met has a clear mind.  Almost no one is logical and reasonable when it comes to their world views. 

People are nuts, and they who would influence and control people use people’s nuttiness to influence and control them.

People only KNOW what they have personally experienced.  Thinking you know is not the same as knowing from experience.

Most people are too lazy–will not pay the price–to know a thing.  They stop at belief and faith in things, and call it good enough.  Like a couch potato they sit upon belief and faith, and never experience the truth.

When I meet a person who says, “I believe and have faith in this or that,” it is as if they have said nothing, nothing at all, AND, I view them as children with little learning, view them for what they are, delusional actors living life without clarity, viewing life through eye-glasses distorted, with lenses less than true, less than perfect.

Belief and faith are virtues when used properly, to prove a thing, and are vile when used improperly, as the thing.

Better by far to say, “I don’t know,” than to say, “I believe or have faith.”

Most folks I have run into, when they say, “I believe or have faith in this or that,” stop searching for the truth because they think they have the truth.   

Because of the false teachings about belief and faith, hope and feelings, it is near impossible to find a person with a clear mind, to find a person without opinions, who doesn’t draw conclusions, who doesn’t judge.  It is near impossible to find a person who looks at life without a thought, who sees life clearly, who sees life as it is and not as he thinks it is.

If you have never looked at life, people, place and things, without a thought, you don’t even know what I’m talking about (however, if you remember back when you were a young child, before your indoctrination, brainwashing and programming, back to before you gave life a thought) you can remember what it was like to live life without a thought, to live life with a clear mind.  Those days were days of clarity, wonderful days when you woke up each morning with a zest for life, with enthusiasm, with the awesomeness  of life, with the magic of life, the days before you dissected life, compartmentalized it, labeled it, judged it, opinionated it and concluded it.  Those were the days before you killed life with your thoughts.

INSANITY RUNS DEEP IN HUMANS

I can’t go anywhere without crashing into conclusions, opinions, beliefs, faith and judgements and the wackadoodle attitudes they inspire. 

Insanity runs deep in humans.  It’s what makes them interesting, funny and nuts.   Everyday I thank the bearded god that doesn’t exist for the free entertainment.

Suddenly it wasn’t cooling down anymore.  Does it ever cool up?  No.  Down is the only way cool works.  It can heat up.  It can’t heat down.  Heat don’t work that way.

People were complaining.  They didn’t like the heat.  I don’t like the heat either, but since heat is what is, I’m ok with it.  People are dying around me, it’s that hot.  Since that’s what is, I’m ok with it.  Even kids are dying.  That’s what is.  There’s no water.  Ok.  There’s no food.  Ok.  There’s no shade, no shelter, but lots of flies.  Ok.  We are all dying.  Ok.  Nukes flying.  Life as we have known it is over.  Ok.  People are complaining, crying, going nuts.  Ok, that’s the last straw.  I’ve got to move away from these people.  They’re way too nuts for me.

People are animals.  That’s what they are.  I don’t expect them to not be animals.  I don’t expect them to do other than what they do.  If one throws things when he gets mad, he throws things.  That’s what he does.  If another gives everyone the silent treatment because he thinks he was mistreated, that’s what he does.  If another steals, lies, cheats, rapes, pillages, plunders and is an all around destroyer, that’s what he is.  I never expect people to be anything but what they are nor do anything but what they do.
Why?  Because I’m not nuts.  A little bit crazy, but not nuts.  A lot goofy, but not nuts.  Ok, maybe a little bit nuts.  Fine, I’m nuttier than you.  I can live with at.  It’s ok.  I don’t expect me to be anything but what I am at any given moment.  Did I mention I live alone.  If not, I live alone, except for my wife of 47 years.  She’s nuts.  And, I’m a vegan 23, hours each day.  And I don’t smoke 16 hours each day (I did the math on smoking.  A pack is less than 30 minutes of actual smoke in ones lungs.  The rest of the time I’m smoking smog, car exhaust, diesel exhaust.  Wonder which is worse?  It is what it is. I am what I am.  I do what I do.  Humans are like that....nuts.

HOW NOT TO BE A FOOL

What is it like when you look at the world without a thought,
without a world view,
without adopting a mental paradigm,
without a perspective,
taking no position,
believing no philosophical, theological or religious fabrication,
taking no thought at all?

Maybe truth is a thoughtless path, considering the saying, “Man’s thoughts are foolishness to God,” which could mean if you have a world view or adopt a perspective or draw a conclusion about the world, you are a fool.

What is it like to live life without a thought about the world? 

It’s very peaceful, even blissful, for you walk through life without judgement, without calling people, places, things, situations and circumstances good or bad, good or evil. 

You accept what is for no other reason than what is, is, needing no explanation as to why it is beyond practical cause and effect, and you see the world as perfect, per effect (not perfect in the sense of a imagined standard or explanation).  You need no made-up explanation (all explanations are made up, are thoughts, which you do not entertain). 

You are free.  You are free from your mind’s creations, free of your parent’s beliefs, free of your culture’s  indoctrination, free of societal propaganda, free of religious brainwashing.  You are free.

And now, no matter what happens, no matter what nature does, no matter what people do, you merely say, “It is what it is.” You entertain no other thought, none what-so-ever, zero, zip, zilch.  “It is what it is.”  And the past, “It was what it was.”  And the future, “It will be what it will be.”

So in essence, you do have an explanation that explains nothing, a truthful statement, the very definition of truth, “Truth is, things as they were, are and will be.”  In other words,   “It was what it was; it is what it is; it will be what it will be.”

Focus on doing your best and it will be the best you have to give at any given moment, AND THEN, no matter how it turns out or what others think, say to yourself, “It is what it is, and it is now in the past and I can’t change the past, and to be other than at peace is insanity personified, is nuts and crazy, and if I get upset or angry and stress and worry and fret and fear I should be put in an insane asylum for abusing myself and others around me.”

You DO NOT need anger to motivate you to do better next time.  Some crazy people think that because anger DOES WORK SOMETIMES to motivate them, that it is good.  HOW STUPID IS THAT?  Better it is to be at peace with a calm mind and look at a situation rationally and seek solutions. 

OK, so I worked on my pickup, did the best I could, and it blew-up.  “It is what it is.”  Then I couldn’t find my wallet, and realized I had lost it while swimming in Yankee Meadow (a big big pond).  It was gone forever.  “It is what it is.”  And then my dog ran off with my wife, and I tried to get my dog back but my wife sent him to a relative of hers in Alaska.  “It is what it is.”  And then I thought I signed a loan paper but found out I had joined the Army.  “It is what it is.”  And finally, one day I was walking down a street and my left leg fell off and a stray dog grabbed it and ran off.  “It is what it is.”  IT ALWAYS IS WHAT IT IS.”  Don’t make a big deal out of it.   And for your own sake, don’t trash yourself or others or situations or circumstances.  JUST STOP THINKING NEGATIVE THOUGHTS, be at peace and work calmly for a better future, AND if it doesn’t turn out the way you planned, remember, “IT IS WHAT IT IS.”

WHAT IS LIFE?

Life is energy organized.

What is energy organized?

Energy organized is intelligence.

What is intelligence?

Intelligence is the ability to compare and contrast cause and effect and evaluate and evolve information.

What is a human life?

A human life (body) is
energy organized
into a particular intelligence
with the ability to perceive and process
(compare and contrast cause and effect)
particular forms and patterns
and evaluate and evolve information
and act and react to those forms and patterns
through will.

What is will?

Will is a decision made by an intelligence using reason.

What is reason?

Reason is the process an intelligence uses to motivate will.

So what is a human life?

A human life is energy in a particular intelligent form that process other energy forms in particular and unique ways.

Are we human?

We are when we are, and are not when we are not.

What does that mean?

We are energy intelligences (intelligence) that can take on, create, form and be anything we will to be.  We are imagination; we are thought; we are dreamers; we are energy-intelligences (intelligence) playing life in all its possibilities.

So are we our bodies, or do we acquire our bodies and inhabit them?

We are whatever we are when we are that, and when we are not that, we are intelligence not imagining, not thinking, not dreaming.  When we are not, we are possibility waiting in silence.

So what are we?

We are ultimately and infinitesimally potential, always one thought away from being something.

This is incomprehensible.

Precisely.  We are that, until we comprehend (think a thing) and then we are that.

Are we individual wills or is there one will individualizing?

There are individual wills when there are individual wills. 
There are individual intelligences when there are individual intelligences. 
When what is, it is.
When what is not, it is not.
All is one and all is many.
Without the many there would be no one for the one is made of many (even as the ocean is one, without the many drops of water it would not be, even as a sea shore is one without the individual sand particles it would not be).

There is no life that is one.  One cannot exist.  It takes two to make one.  It takes two for life to exist. Always there are two for one to exist.  There is no one sided coin.  There is no up without down, no in without out, no left without right, no negative without positive.

Life is energy at play in its many forms.  Enjoy your form while you have it.  Play life.

THINK ABOUT IT

All I have to do is drink, eat, clothe and shelter to stay alive.  Everything else needed to stay alive is done for me.  My body even signals when it is thirsty, hungry, hot, cold and in need of shelter. 

And then, at the price of my labor the earth provides everything I need to survive. 

The many systems my body has work without a thought from me (skeletal, muscular, digestive, lymphatic, endocrine, nervous, circulatory, immune, integumentary, respiratory, reproductive systems and other minor systems, etc.). All those systems are integrated, are intelligent, and do their work automatically. 

My thinking-conscious-intelligence hasn’t a clue how to run any of those systems.  And the earth systems works without a thought from me either.  My intelligence is really quite useless to keep me alive except to respond to my body’s alert system to drink, eat, clothe and shelter. 

There is indeed an intelligence far greater than humans in the universe (intelligence, meaning, a system of cause and effect that responds to information and acts accordingly).

This “unknown” intelligence brought forth humans.  It not only formatted my body from an energy-genetic blue print, but it determined my race, body structure, IQ, emotions, personality, talents and abilities, including my likes and dislikes and other natural inclinations.  It gave me my nature.

You might say, humans really haven’t got much to crow about since everything we think and do is the result of this unknown intelligence’s capabilities expressed in and through us.  You could even say that we don’t do anything.  It does it all. 

Maybe it would be wise for us to stop thinking we are the power and genius behind our creations, since in essence, we, and everything we create, are the result of the power and genius of the unknown intelligence that gives and sustains life.
