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
Individual life is a karmic unfolding, an unfolding lineage of forms. (Who am I writing this for? For myself. As part of my own unfolding. I am not committed to this language: it's arbitrary. This idea (these ideas) can be phrased a million different ways. Form/phrasing is contextual, thus, irrelevant. But I am committed (if only for now) to the idea behind this form.)
There is no "and" in cause-and-effect. Cause and Effect are one and the same uninterrupted flow of reality. Mind breaks up the flow of this reality into Cause and Effect b/c of its information-processing limitations, essentially, dropping out of the flow of "What Is" to deal with it (by categorizing it). So, when you choose a Cause, you choose an Effect. That's Karma: karma is not fate, karma is self-determinism.

Do I stand by any of these thoughts? Not when I sit (in meditation).
