The Weight of the Present

.

Buddhist or not… ideas, suggestions, believes and teachings are simply hypnosis-instructions, mental-movies, fuels for cars, derailments for trains, pains-in-the-ass and above all – a hot burning flame.

Similar to Buddha’s teaching to a group of fire-warshipping hermits:
Mano Adhitto – The Mind is a flame.
Dhamma Adhitta – Ideas are all a flame (Buddhism included)
The mind simply receives new instructions and begins processing.

Therefore views, reasons and expectations are all illusions.
The exacting duties of Mr. Delusion.

To throw us off the very “present” moment.

One example is Confusion, an idea leading the mind to struggle for resolution, so rather than listening to Mr. Confusion and stumble insanely towards concussions… know that it is “confused automatically by itself” – that exact moment is the right knowing. All further throwing from that seed will stop.

Another classic example is “How can I stop thinking”… again, absolutely crazy misunderstanding in nature, coupled with an idea (how to stop) leading to mental struggles causing more thoughts than ever previously conjured. Instead… know that it is “thinking automatically by itself” – that very moment is the right knowing. Resulting in a real “STOP” in throwing or stumbling.

The present is paramount… for it realises the true functioning nature of the mind – to Think, to jump, to throw, to struggle, to never be still, completely and utterly unable to remain in one state too long.  The present is an awakening to the nature of things.

From there, IT (the mind) has wisdom (thoughtless realisation) that IT isn’t home-sweet-home like IT used to think IT was… but rather a-flame, a fire, a monkey, an engine of suffering, etc….  IT automatically detaches and let-go by ITself.

Awake and knowing:
Rupa Anijja – Bodies cannot remain in one state too long
Vedana Anijja – feelings cannot remain in one state too long
Sanna Anijja – memories cannot remain in one state too long
Sankhara Anijja – mental movements cannot remain in one state too long

Vinyana Anijja – all consciousness cannot remain in one state too long

Rupa Anatta – bodies are not self, not soul
Vedana Anatta – feelings are not self, not soul
Sanya Anatta – memories are not self, not soul
Sankhara Anatta – mental movements are not self, not soul

Vinyana Anatta – all consciousness are not self, not soul.

Parami Anatta – perfections are not self, not soul
Panya Anatta – wisdoms are not self, not soul

Dana Anatta – offerings are not self, not soul
Sila Anatta – precepts are not self, not soul
Adhitana Anatta – goals and expectations are not self, not soul
Viriya Anatta – efforts are not self, not soul
Khanti Anatta – patience is not self, not soul
Sajja Anatta – honesty is not self, not soul
Metta Anatta – compassions are not self, not soul
Ubekha Anatta – equanimity is not self, not soul
