To go beyond dull routine…

To remain in dull routine is not deep intelligence.  Most, unfortunately, do (whether they truly realize it or not) remain in dull routine.  To go beyond the realm of sequential patterns and images is to intelligently go (now and then) beyond “thinking” and “dull routine”; monotonous boredom depends on the same, sequential routines.  All thoughts are (and must, by natural law, always be) residual reactions that are conditioned, sequential routines.  Silence truly is golden.  (One cannot choose to be truly silent; the “choice”  — wishing silence — is part of the conditioned sequence of thinking, and thinking cannot create true silence; silence must — on its own — take place naturally, without effort.)  

All methods of practice to get to silence (including the various techniques of “meditation”) are essentially false; all methods are man-made sequential routines, and no sequential paradigm (or decision by conditioned thought) can create the beauty of true silence.  What is residual — sequential and, hence, fragmentary and second-hand —  cannot create (or automatically lead one to) what is not part of a sequential paradigm and what is dynamically whole.  There is no path to the pathless.  A method or system may get one to a dead thing; but no calculated means can take one to that wholeness that is beyond a cause/effect continuum.  

One more very important thing:   You can add a “no,” after “lead,” in the following poem.

.

.     seeker of truth

.

.     follow no path

.     all paths lead where

.

.      truth is here

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original mindfulness sayings and/or poetry that deals with mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...
