When consciousness decides to leave the body, to drop the whole mind/body apparatus, it does so spontaneously. No meetings are convened, permissions sought or variables examined. A breath goes out and doesn’t return.
It’s in the nature of the mind to misunderstand things. Knowing’s not thinking.
“When you realize yourself as less than a point in space and time, something too small to be cut and too short-lived to be killed, then, and then only, all fear goes.”
The desire to know oneself bespeaks a direct connection to the universal intelligence. Men who desire to know themselves begin to feel alienated from tribal, religious and political concerns. They lose their opinions.
If action is required, act now. In fact, now is the only time we can act. No one in the history of the world has ever acted in the future. Waiting is dying.
