fire needs fuel.
thinker needs thought.
thought needs senses.
mind on fire.
tune into the ecstasy that surrounds you.
"Surround" is a gap word separating subject and object.
That's what languaging does,
splits it up,
separates out the bits and pieces,
like undoing a lego set configuration.
making 3 dimensional 2 dimensional,
putting it 'on paper'.
flattening it out.
a pale comparison to direct experience where it's not split up.
locked up in a house of language,
because it's scary without the cultural rules.
one is not free,
surrounding the house,
a sense of freedom, ecstasy.
once one is free,
it's not over,
one is free to act.
and even then the free to act tends to take one in the general direction of fixing up suffering because when the logic is right, compassion kicks in.
the inquiry has to look at the question.
Is there anyone here actually doing anything anyway?
It just looks like survival patterns.
Everyone is certainly wary.
She thanked me but in the thanking of me was this palpable sense of her being 'wary'.
She must think I want something.
what could I possibly want?
there's nothing there but breakdown/breakthru'.
I'm disconnecting. too complicated.
I'm outta there.
people don't get it. they get it wrong.

Not per hour, per day.
And since we are getting in to the spirit of asserting ourselves, I find you a waste of oxygen and I hope your children get decapitated in a freak accident, and you are there to see it, then you get breast cancer.
movingalways wrote:Dennis, IT is your interpretation of life, you have nothing else but this. As you said earlier, subject-object is unified. If mind is on fire, that is IT to you. It was the word "surround" that I was questioning. "Surround" is a gap word separating subject and object.
Because mind on fire is a feeling immersion in sentience, mind on fire obscures that ultimate point of life-analysis in the sentient realm where one can assert their Meaning or Reason for being here. Where is here? If the metaphor of the door between realms of consciousness is used, "here" is to stand on the threshold facing what is known, the sentient realm, with one's back turned toward what is unknown, the realm beyond sentience. To stand on this point is to cease being immersed in sentience, the web of association, and to see clearly the nature of the sentient web - all of it - as you know it to be. Standing here, your inner conscience is exposed to yourself, you see clearly what it means to be breath dependent, you cannot see clearly what it means to be independent of breath, and of this realization, you interpret your "I am."
How one analyzes or reasons this highest point of seeing where mind is aware of causality but is not being moved of causality becomes their foundation of conscience, what Jesus called "being in the world, but not of the world." Knowing your reasoning of why I am here, in relation to your totality of right now, stops all doubt, opining and speculation with regards to your purpose. You have come to the mountain top of your conscious awareness, you have fearlessly freed yourself from being entangled in the ever moving web of confusion of "they say", analyzed its meaning to you and now are ready to be this meaning. Here, there is no more to do except be who you know you are, and when you know who or what you ARE, you assert who or what you ARE. This assertion will most likely appear as arrogance, ignorance or foolishness to non-threshold asserters, but to the asserter, this matters not.
It is always a joy when two who assert who they are meet and converse. Their threshold experience may be different, but because the threshold experience is always without the humanism of personalizing, their conversations are pure and clean of intent and sweet in taste and texture. Expansion beyond 'here' is always possible when two such threashold-asserters meet.
Every man, including the "poor bastard" in Blair's scenario can strive to stand on his threshold. I cannot say this to be true of anyone else, but it is my experience of the sentient realm as being one of deep suffering that I was able to stand on the threshold and know why I am here which is the same as knowing who and what I am.

Bottom line is, you are going to lose.
Not me, you.
And I'll be chuckling, nay laughing about it.

In time you will lose everything single thing that you value, and be left with nothing but despair.
