Talks, books, and practices are restricted to surface comprehension – memory, feelings, etc. – that is not direct viewing. Direct seeing happens beyond consciousness; it is that infinitesimal split second when something hits the mind like it came from left field, it is whenever the mind realizes something really heavy for the first time,it is that moment of truth when the light bulb goes away and you say to yourself,”Oh my!”
We have to look no farther than this five or six feet of body that we’re in. It’s more fun to read books and do clinics, and these may help still your mind so that you can actually look at your body peacefully and without prejudice, but it’s the looking and investigation with a definite insightful mind that counts in the long run. The entire world will continue to be the puppeteer which are your attachments unless you can penetrate into your ownership of it along with the delusion of the human body, and also the number one attachment is head and your own body.
Because our bodies are a big bag of water, which conducts electricity quite 27, the reason that we’re so vulnerable to lightning is! Our bodies are made of the parts of the earth, and it will again melt into the earth when it dies. We really are not something living upon it, and the earth.
Then there is the brain, what places all its psychological and physical inputs together; mental inputs such as when our eyes, ears, nose, tongue, mind contacts a sense object and records it, then mind will either be impartial to the object, reject the object by pushing away it which lead to feelings of anger, hatred, etc., or adopt the thing by attaching to it and thinking of ways to own it, which result in feelings of love, avarice, lust, jealousy, anger, and hatred, etc..
And out of these inputs, like memory and discursive arises our idea of itself. It sounds more than only a human body and head, it becomes our character that we must defend, and a body that we must protect. This is our constant burden of anxiety, and regardless of how appealing our religions depict the next world, without direct insight into just what the human body and mind is now, we will never possess the liberty to let go of these, and instead be caught up in an endless web of fear and uncertainty.
One will see their world from that which it is now, as if it will go on indefinitely, and consider any strain in their own lives as temporary, only until they get things straightened out a course in miracles. They will also insist that head and this body is theirs, they a re behind it all as an individual soul.
Authentic insight will see it otherwise. There is just a presence that changes moment to moment, no Earth, also can be . There is not any owner of this happenings; it had been born, will rise into components different from the rest of the bodies in the bodily, materiel universe.
Can I mention that courage is required by insight that is true? To hear these items without the protection of the flash of insight which discards self-belief and materiality is similar to pulling out the rug from everything which one holds dear. And this is the point; everything one holds dear, holds one imprisoned. It’s a dichotomy. Because unbounded freedom has nothing to do with the material world with. We’re not that body or mind. These things are too fragile. That which we are wasn’t born, has always been, will never die – . What we truly are can be touched with direct comprehension, and as soon as it is, your world will be altered.
