Thought Creates the Thinker

August 16th ~ Thought is verbalized sensation; thought is the response of memory, the word, the experience, the image.  Thought is transient, changing, impermanent, and it is seeking permanency.  So thought creates the thinker, who then becomes the permanent; he assumes the role of the censor, the guide, the controller, the molder of thought.  This illusory permanent entity is the product of thought, of the transient.  This entity is thought; without thought he is not.  The thinker is made up of qualities; his qualities cannot be separated from himself.  The controller is the controlled, he is merely playing a deceptive game with himself.  Till the false is seen as the false, truth is not.

November 23rd, 2019 ~ Are we making things to complicated for ourselves?  Seeing things as they are is our task.  Understanding things as they are.  However, we try to counter what is actually happening.  We think violent thoughts.  We try to, then, have peaceful thoughts.  We express our anger.  We take anger management classes.  We see violence in the world; we counter it by being more peaceful.  Seeing things as they are is not complicated, but it takes a tremendous amount of energy.  We are getting more and more intelligent in how we educate the young.  Will they be more and more conditioned?

The thought creates the thinker.  The mind is an amazing thing.  Obviously, it can do a lot.  It can be mis-used.  It can be trained incorrectly.  It is exciting to understand the mind.  Wouldn’t you agree?
