Alright....So consciousness comes to know "it is." It likes "to be."

But if consciousness ever 'settles into' its source.....

AAAAAAAAAH!

'IS'    neither likes nor dislikes. How can it when it 'IS IS'.

Separate source from IS.

Is is source, source is is.

What is there to settle into. Settle is. Source is.

Know less is. Know more is.

Consciousness IS.

I know this because IS/NO IS.

Mind/no mind.

Is is paradox.

mind?

no mind?

lets not choose but have both.

no mind could be likened to awareness.

which is the body feeling and sensing the immeditate surroundings all at once.

the mind is not capable of seeing in all directions at once.

we cant pay attention to everything at once.

the attention cant open up and see in all directions.

this is what awareness is for.

now awareness is good stuff.

we hear birds regardless if we pay attention to them or not.

their is no such thing as no mind.

it is no paradox.

paradox equals confusion.

id drop this paradox thinking if i was you.

better to just accept the " wholeness " and " partialness " of life all at once.

by partial i mean the mind singeling out things.

focus is a good thing.

overfocus ( which i accuse myself of ) isnt.

the mind shouldnt focus on just one thing though.

this is a ism.

and prevents the mind from being free.
