Imperishable insight is life that perceives its true reality (far beyond the limited, dead norm).
If you try to anchor the ship of your mind in the supposedly safe harbor of orthodox security (i.e., traditional beliefs)… you’ll stay shallow and never go deep.
The wise mind goes beyond constant symbolic thinking; it does not necessarily always need to be recognizing things as it was taught.
The watery pool of the astute, reflective mind must be still to mirror the absolute truth. A mere agitated mind, merely full of turbulence and turmoil, reflects nothing.
To a truly wise mind, many supposedly tantalizing sensations are rather trivial and somewhat meaningless… because a truly wise mind is content in itself, not needing extraneous stimuli to (eventually) make it happy.
Movements can claim to be solid entities. Mere reactions can claim to have freedom. Few truly evolve.
Love this line: “The watery pool of the astute, reflective mind must be still to mirror the absolute truth.”
Thank you, CC… much appreciated! 🙂
Deeply insightful as always
Thanks much, Lou! We hope so! 🙂
Love where you are coming from and where you are going.
Thanks very much Ken! Possibly, there is nothing really coming or going (as most people think). 🙂
Snow outside my window, your flowers warming my heart … spring will come … thank you!
🙂 When i was young, Roger, snow meant “snow days” and a possibility of “no school.” Now that i’m elderly and retired, it is not as glamorous! 🙂
We are trained to be mediocre sheep, but great minds, from Darwin to Einstein, trusted their own ideas and rose above. Another great post!
Thanks much, Michael! Years ago, when i was way younger, i used to hang around Professor David Bohm and would have great one on one philosophical conversations with him. Bohm was tutored in physics by Albert Einstein and they remained friends for life. Einstein called Bohm his “spiritual son.”
Yes, the truly wise mind – becoming and letting go the trivial, so wonderfully put.
Thank you, Paul! 🙂 Frost covering everything here today!
As we enter the 30s C
Yes! So perfect.
Thank you, Tom! 🙂
Abandoning “recognizing things taught” for the greater curiosity of “unknowing” opens the soul. Good post!
Thought provoking Tom. Thank you.
