Path to Enlightenment

Nexus

Accumulation of knowledge is often mistaken for intelligence. This is like mistaking a cup of milk for a cow. Like memorizing information for a test, only so that you may pass that single test and then the burden of the knowledge is dropped after the information is not needed any more.
Where is the intelligence in such reasoning and action? Wisdom is much more valuable than any accumulation of knowledge. Wisdom is principles.

Principles discuss the very nature of perception as the understanding of reality. People are foolish when trying to become somebody in the world, when they haven’t even come to terms first with their own true nature. Until we become realized beings, every commodity we produce is at the detrimental expense of somebody. In order to have heaven on earth in such a corrupt system, you have to have somebody else do the work.

Many are fine with this and happy because they don’t have to do the work, or they do have to work, but are indifferent enough and caught in the illusion to where they don’t make the effort to push for a change. Working class and middle class people are trapped in lifeless dead end jobs, working to their own demise for the profit of somebody else. Too many people are in debt, bankrupt, homeless and/or barely able to survive. We all need food, warmth, shelter, and the other basic needs. It’s sad that this issue is still not resolved. It is not a question of resources. It’s a matter of getting those who hoard the resources to share, which unfortunately is most improbable.

The wealthy usually want to live in mansions and palaces, they want servants. They often want to waste what isn’t desired any longer and feel unburdened by their own waste and excess. Excess is important to most who are wealthy. It is selfish to desire to have so much of anything that is needed or wanted, to where there is no concern about going without. In fact, when you never have to put intention and energy towards what’s needed, the mind tends to enforce flippant cravings, desires, and indulgences, and forget about important things like health and the overall well being of the self and others.

When we are forced to be frugal or to ration, there is a sense of mindfulness, that is easily lost when there is no intensity or pressure
in that sense.
It is intensity that drives us, intensity that gives us power. Any negativity can be transformed, but to do so it has to all come to the surface to be worked out. This is why any legitimate internal alchemy practice or path to enlightenment can be arduous, and even painful and intense to the seeker. Once it is understood how to transform negative intensities that are felt, health, tranquility, and well being come naturally as if they were waiting for you to remember that they are the greatest treasures one can ever attain.

A sense of compassion towards all living things is suddenly realized when this happens, because the mind/body stops acting and thinking selfishly when it realizes that it doesn’t have to anymore; that it never had to be selfish in the first place. All sense of self or selfish behavior is damaging to the self and to others; it is the reason we get sick and the reason there is unjust violence and many other atrocities in the world. There is no self, we are all in this together. Each of us effects the world and everything in it, just as much as we effect ourselves by how we focus our intention and awareness. Either we can fight and reject the predicament, or we can find a way to unite and breakthrough.

Very few wealthy people are benevolent, generous, and compassionate. Most like to collect expensive and rare things like cars or trophies, just to have them sitting in around somewhere. Where is the intelligence in this behavior?!

Reality is: the perception of the understanding of something

The spirit is stronger than the body.

Good health; Strong body; Clear mind.

IT’s not about striving for balance, IT’s about finding the seeds of order even in the midst of profound chaos.
Awareness leads to Intellectual deconstruction of emotional patterns.
To see through an emotional complex, is to rob it of its power.
The first step is to identify the complex in which you have been caught.
Logical deconstruction followed by meditation, clears the mind.

Imagine the conditioned self that is you, which is familiar to logic and reason.
Imagine that you are skimming atop endless waves of emotion.
Riding them as if you are in control of the wind and the water.
You believe you’re in control, but you know the control is an illusion.
You believe you understand the depths beneath you. but that too is an illusion.

“I tested the water’s kiss. It did ripple the pond a bit.
If you can handle the prospect of death that is…. and it’s a massive as heck shock.
Love will have you nervous, doin’ stupid shit on purpose. When you have it, there’s nothing like it.
It ain’t the rainbow with a treasure chest and a map. But still you hunt for it.”

There are only two possible outcomes from an emotional complex dealing with love.
Either it will end in disaster, or the emotional complex will be worked out and a balance that brings
stability and trust between individuals is attained. Gonna keep walking forward.
Never turning back. Each day is past as future is presently becoming. Time is a paradox.
A(past) and B(present) go to C(future) and C then goes back to A. Awareness of C effects A and B.
If there is awareness or intuition of something, all of time is effected. IF necessary,
and something is noticed quick enough, time can be used to the advantage of the awareness.

Time is in relation to perception and the perception of others is affected by each other in many ways.
People link in to each other’s perception, without even noticing it most of the time, in a really minute way.
There is a link that is made, that enables communication on a level that is similar enough in understanding, so that the awareness can grasp it consciously.

IF time were defined as A(past), B(present), and C(future);
IF someone or something from C(future) was somehow able to go back to A(past), this would create a number of
paradoxes. IF this were to happen, Anything effected by the undetermined variables of C(future)
existing in A(past) would then effect the C(future) of that A(past) which would be an entirely different
“time stream”, just because something happened to effect A when C interacted with A.
This would mean that such a thing has already happened, and theoretically there would be no noticing of it
happening by anyone.

In other words, if someone or something
traveled to the future or the past,
it would invariably
effect time and an entirely different
sequence of events occurring, or time stream, would be created
just because time was cheated, in this sense.
Like all of a sudden everything was different and everyone
just went along with it as if it happened like that normally.
In that sense there would be no disturbance in time, no lapse.

IF the future were to effect the past(or vice versa),
there would be no indication of it happening except if a person travelling from the future to the past was
able to be outside the perceived stream of time-space in order to observe without being caught in the paradox.
Time must be perceived in a certain way otherwise there are all sorts of paradoxes.
The only thing that is born and that dies, is the perception of time.
Perception of time is reality defined, consciously.
IF perception is the key to time, then all that needs be shifted is the level of awareness.
