To wield witty words, to accumulate a lot mentally and in the material world, to have power, and to have security, is zilch if one is not of a holistic compassion beyond the so-called central self. Holistic compassion (beautifully) does not depend on any outside or inside authority for guidance. In holistic compassion, there is no direction, no blueprint as to the right way to go. Society spoon-feeds us everything. So many of us are used to being spoon-fed. We are so impressionable and easily influenced by (and “as”) reaction. Our propensity for looking with what others have spoon-fed to us runs deep. What may be intelligent is a quantum leap going beyond all that. That quantum leap may not be of time. Psychological time, as the associated past of what one has learned, and as obtrusions from the past as what the future might be, does have some place. However, the timeless, beyond that limited domain, is also of great significance.
In the timeless, there is no seeking, no authority, no goal (projected from, and “as,” the past), no direction, and there are not mere tokens and labels (as words) that keep one in fragmented, sequential symbolism. In the timeless, real compassion and holistic intelligence — beyond the limited, isolated, coldly indifferent, and false — manifest.
