The terrible twos

What we think is not the truth. A thought is a mental formation. The best and most it can do is point to the truth. Thought forms often fight with each other. Onward, Christian soldiers! Humans didn’t start speaking their thoughts until recently—50,000 years ago, by one estimate. Okay, the Terrible Twos. Maybe we’ll grow out of it. Maybe we won’t.  


Minds with egos attached to them (that’s most minds) create an illusion of two-mindedness. We feel compelled to fight with ourselves, even to hate ourselves. Not men, are we, but civil wars. Do we project this violence? Oh, yeah. It’s where enemies come from.
