Mindstream Index

About MINDSTREAM [making sense of nonsense]:       

Pattern Interruption Non-News has no informational value, just potential experiential value.  [Food-for-thought, by definition, comes with indigestion.  If food-for-thought goes down easy, it's not food-for-thought but just brain-candy.]

I write this freely, unafraid of self-contradiction.  And I encourage you to read this blog with the same attitude of interpretive freedom.

Walt Whitman:  Do I contradict myself?  Very well, then I contradict myself.  I am large: I contain multitudes.

Confusion* is enlightenment [of sorts].

confusion =  letting go of the known + stepping into the unknown = openness of mind

If there is no true emptiness (nothingness) and, therefore, no separation, and, therefore, no possibility of physical movement, then all change is but an illusion, i.e. a dream.

Each time we remember, each time we dis-member and re-member the original neural echo of what once was until the echo is no more (just like the reality that has long passed).

Perfection is not an achievement but a baseline, not the fruit of being we reach for, but the very ground of being we stand on.

Learn What You Need to Un-learn

We are too focused on learning (something new) and not focused enough on un-learning (something old that keeps getting in the way). Much of the time when clients come to see me they want to learn something new. Much of the time what actually seems to help them is un-learning of something old that kept getting in the way. Ask yourself: "What do I need to un-learn today?" Learn what you need to un-learn.

First, meditation is a technique, something you do. Then, meditation is a self-study, still something you do. Then, meditation is a study of non-self, something you let happen. Then, meditation is a non-study, a thing that happens on its own, now and then. And then, after a while, any distinction between meditation and non-meditation ceases to exist and meditation becomes a way of being and non-being.

Authenticity + Mystery = Reflection

To make a mirror you need a sandwich of transparence and obscuration (a layer of transparent film and a layer of non-transparent film). Thus a reflection - be it of physical or relational nature - is a superimposition of authenticity (the obvious/the see-through) upon a mystery (the obscure/the impenetrable).
