Order of the mind is a sane, truly intelligent person’s responsibility. Real order involves integrity and purity. How can the mind remain pure if it is merely sullied by the old-fangled values and archaic systems of the past? One must have a clear, untarnished mind. For that to occur, it may be that one’s mind must be open, young, and beyond mere influence. Only profound silence beyond old systems and methods can do that. That means not merely depending on others. That means not merely depending on inner thoughts… that were likely implanted in one by (and “as”) others. That means not merely depending upon time. (Psychological and so-called spiritual methodologies — dreamed up by man — stem from the past and require time.) Timelessness involves existing beyond one’s inner conditioning (a conditioning that is the accumulation and extension of the old patterns of others). Most of us habitually depend upon others; most of us are afraid to stand empty, alone, and open. “Standing alone” goes beyond psychological security and imitation. Many go through life imitating and copying; fear has a lot to do with it. For many, it is far easier to copy others and “go through the motions,” rather than to independently perceive and think for themselves. (And their so-called leaders are often mentally unsound.) Too many of us are second-hand human beings.
Real perception, empathy, and compassion, emanates from a superb, selfless mind that is beyond mere imitation and dependence. Real compassion comes from the heart; it does not emerge from a robotic mind that merely imitates and follows orders. In real compassion comes real action (not just reaction). Reaction belongs to imitating, conditioning, and second-hand minds (many of whom are indifferent and puppet-like).
