Bhikkhus, what is ignorance?
Not knowing suffering,
Not knowing the origin of suffering,
Not knowing the cessation of suffering,
Not knowing the path leading to... continue...

→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: ...THE MIND...
vertical line Posted on Dec.07.2007 @ 05:58PM EDT by Lionel

...the other day chatting & we were puzzling about the human being's mind topic... i mean the complex mind & its root-base in our humankind system...

...can the mind or minds think see hear smell taste & feel without senses' organs eye ear nose tongue & skin organs... at all? Is the brain the organ of mind or is it only thought control panel? What is our heart mean to our mind at the end of the day? One day, if , yes only if as condition perhaps, our head can be successfully transplanted, what is going to happening?

     when the violin can forgive the past, it starts singing
when the violin can stop worrying about the future . . .
. . . when the violin can forgive every wound caused by others

the heart starts singing

Mr. Lionel,

What that is asking all those question is your mind with its functioning or activities.  You should realise this yourself and answer the questions yourself.  No one else can do that for you.  It is like the person who is drinking water will know it warm or cold directly and immediately. 

"what is going to happenning?"  Just wait until when it happens, then you will be told.

I don't have a need to know
it is you who have a need to tell

but if you don't feel like telling, that's OK as well

vertical line Really? Ok, so your mind needs to put thoughts into somebody else's mind and give someone else permission to feel - I already knew that without thinking.

When you want people to know what you think, you got to speak it up.  However, they listen to what you think or not is a different thing.

vertical line Yeah ok. Then there's like the difference between those who think to listen but can't hear a sound and those who listen and hear nothing.
