I had an epiphany and I just want to throw this by some of you in the community.Recently I have been trying to find the right set of mantras or daily thoughts to govern my being.
I then came to the conclusion this morning after meditating (the night before) with 'Silent' thought and simple pictures painted in my head that for someone with a busy mind like myself when I do no think (as in try to be purposeful with my thought I seem to be happier.
Could this be because I have spent the last two years with daily purposeful thought? (repeating: I am harmonious and whole, I am loving etc.) I ask you because I do recall the quote from Bruce lee which states “If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.” and "Like everyone else you want to learn the way to win. But never to accept the way to lose.
To accept defeat — to learn to die — is to be liberated from it. Once you accept, you are free to flow and to harmonize. Fluidity is the way to an empty mind. You must free your ambitious mind and learn the art of dying."
I kind of look at this as the art of thinking without thinking ...I have planted the seeds now I am t leave it undisturbed with empty harmonious thoughts.Is this defined somewhere or what is the communities take on this?
kind humble regards
To reach a mind with no mind one must be like still water and solve, find the answer to, all is duality. One does not become empty but more full. Since there is no more duality and chaos within. To give you a picture take a box with a puzzle put the puzzle on the table spread the pieces so that they are not over each other and that you can look at them does it take a lot of place? Do the puzzle, when it is finished does it takes less place? Do you still have to wonder where the pieces go or how to relate to each other? Now you have an example on the outside, well, it is the same on the inside.
Since you are born in this world how many puzzles do you have put in you? How many are not solved? How many did you ignore or suppress?
Also there is more then one level in you. Most are under water right now, they stick to the outside(wide gate of destruction, the outer world) and do not know the inside(the inner world), the narrow gate.
Some are on the surface of the water, they have solved the chaos within themselves and solved the surface puzzle and are in balance between the inside and the outside.
Some are starting to see the light and solving deeper puzzles, of how thought and emotion relate to each other, but they do not yet realize that the light is within themselves as spirit made in the image of God.
When all puzzles are solved, then the water and the light become one, you are at the mind with no mind, your awareness, focus and concentration are boosted, you feel the light radiating from inside of you to the outside.
Then comes the next level, without fear you disconnect from the flesh go out of the flesh, into the sky and you see the light appearing out of a vortex you enter that vortex that leads to the kingdom of light. (The wind blows wherever it pleases, you hear the sound it makes but you do not know where it comes from nor where it is going, such it is for everyone born of water and spirit. The one that comes from above is above all)
Blessed are the pure of heart they will see God.
So let there be light, Be the light that you can be, experience and enjoy.
The Samurai and the American Indians had this philosophy that before battle they would think, "Today is a good day to die." They both looked at the fact that they may die and accepted it. In other words they looked death squarely in the eyes and as it says in the Bible "Oh death where is your sting?" Once they faced the worst and didn't need to fear it because it was not unknown but faced as a real possibility, it lost its grip in fear! They could fight now fearlessly because they had met death before hand. Death was not a worry, so that thought never entered the picture while fighting. Their minds could be in the moment fighting without being clouded by fear.
Thinking without thinking is different, you take in as much data as you can logically, then give it over to your right brain to find the answer while you do something else or sleep.
I think I can share a slightly different perspective on this particular interest. Especially regarding "thinking without thought" and the concept of dying with reference to that exact activity.
Over the ages, different and un-related seekers have encountered a certain understanding about consciousness. That understanding is that our consciousness is a foreign installation similar to a computer program, which was "installed" upon the existing humanoid vessel (that is commonly encountered throughout the galaxies).
And the difference here upon the earth (as opposed to existing in another star system), is that we are forced to take all our intuition and run it through a slow process of authentication called "thinking" in order to validate the potential realization of that "event" within the existing matrix of programmed potential reality.
However, a dual unfolding of potential reality seems to be taking place.
It seems that if we can train our consciousness to NOT push our intuition into a louder and slower dimension called "thinking", then the power within that potential intuition stays within our ability to control through our inner connection to the creator.
But if we push that intuition into the louder dimension called "thought" our intent is not only now entrapped within the potential of the programmed reality, but our intent is also known to those that do not want us to be independent of the programmed reality.
In other words, we are "watched" through the mechanism of thinking.
Our habitual "thinking" is what allows our potential to be limited to what is beneficial to the programmed reality, because by the activity of "thinking" we are constantly broadcasting our intent like a flashing point of reference within a global positioning map of programmed potential reality.
However, the secret is that the power of the program is coming from US and it is being used to restrict our potential!
Apparently, we are the most restricted humanoid experience in existence.
Moreover, this restriction is achieved through the mechanism of filtering our potential into a programmed reality by getting us to "think" our potential into the program.
If we want to achieve true freedom from this restricted potential, we have to break free from the desire to broadcast all our intuition into thought.
While it may seem that, my answer is entirely based of the movie the Matrix, in reality these ideas have been around before the wachowski brothers came into the scene and it is very likely that their movie was based on many of these pre-existing ideas
In-fact when they were asked what the purpose behind making the matrix trilogy was, they have always said that it will all make sense in time.
So what will we do if we learn not to think?
I believe that if we can achieve this change, then instead of thinking and communicating with words, we will eventually learn to communicate telepathically (as we were meant to do)
We will eventually exist purely within intuition and telepathy.
Only then can we be free of the suppression system called "conscious thought".
Since our entire physical identity is based on the "thinking experience”, the transition from the thinking experience to the intuitive experience will be literally the death of the identity that we have always known.
So it is best not attempted until other faculties such as telepathy are grasped and used with familiarity.
It is too early for all of us to rush into this "not thinking" experience as blind followers looking for the next great leading edge concept. (Especially those trying to make a quick buck out of it).
It may take the rest of our lifetime just to learn to switch off the thinking process and mentally solve problems with pure intuition.
However, if this desire to learn to switch off the "thinking mind" is combined with the simultaneous expansion of the intuitive point of reference, I believe that telepathy will naturally awaken as a side effect of intuition.
If we are successful, we can be the first generation of humanity to transition from mental slavery to creative freedom within our lifetime.
Then we can truly experience the power of our consciousness and its relationship to reality.
Now the Disclaimer:
The above concept is my amalgamation of a particular slice of interest within a much wider interest in the nature of consciousness. It is by no means a major obsession or an “ultimate truth” regarding consciousness. It is however a borrowed concept whose origins are found within the works of spiritual seekers such as krishnamurti and prabhupada, authors such as Jane Roberts, Carlos Castaneda, and from the secret teachings of a couple of secret societies.
