Mind is an illusionist.

Mind is an excuse machine

I feel fear when I want to write this.

Maybe this is my last blog message.

My mind is  blocked to form a coherent post

The reasonable mind comes up with excuses to cover for fear. It’s a flight response.

Plato presented that we do not see things as they really are. That we are in a cave and The world is outside that cave.. We see projection, and there is more.

There are two ways to discover. Analytical and Empirical (?What’s the connection with empire ?) Empirical is meditational .

– Besides this message, I feel that when I try to write this message that my mind accesses my linguistic frame of reference to write what I want to write. That accessing is a spirit, an intent . The fact that I can feel that show my current sensitivity in that regard. Which comes from my meditation –

Present yet not

I was meditating this morning in m bed and I felt I was imagining illusions about things.  I did not want that. I felt something related to seeing things as they are coming from the back of my head. that happened a few times.

I was riding on my bicycle, It’s dark outside. I was present – In that I was seeing traffic and traffic light -. And I was definitely present in that I noticed that what I was seeing was presented, projected to me. I felt that spirit, intent. And as happened before when I notice things – like a frame of reference instance – My focus shifts to seeing as it is. Which made me feel more present, sharper, brighter.

 

Other feelings

It’s so easy to be wrong, confused, misguided. With potentially dire consequences.

I noticed I mislabelled. I was about to label, name focus as mind. I but I was not happy about that. I examined it by putting my on mind. I noticed I that put me in rational thinking mode. After that I realized It was really focus that was the right word.

When I put my focus on spiritual travelling – a bit like a vision quest – I feel confident, calm.

Medtitation failed , meditation succeeded meditation, meditation succeeded.

Learned this afternoon.

A real struggle it was.

Pain. Excruciating it was.

Like nettles

Excruciating.

Going from my teeth to the top of my forehead.

I dealt with it in my usual way

Meditatively.Being present in it, staying calm.

Didn’t work. The pain lasted.

Until I had a thought.

What if it is different.

II went from being present in the painful spot to being present broadly.

Like from looking at a spot, a branch or a tree to looking at the forest.

More literally I set my awareness to be unassumingly , non directionally receptive.

I heard a mantra. “It is physical”. Repeating.  “Hee what” I thought then.

The pain went away then.

If I had not changed focus. I would not have succeeded.

At first mediation failed. With hindsight not surprisingly.

 

Meditation failed , meditation succeeded meditation, meditation succeeded.

It worked and it didn’t.

I want to continue writing about the right way. But I get stuck so I stop.

Bye. until next time.
