The really bad, bad thing about education, is that it forces upon us the unnatural act of thinking.
Remember how painful that initially was? It hurt!
Until then, all was observation, experimentation, intuition. All was now!
And suddenly now was nowhere to be found, and our memory buffers were filled with thoughts we had to remember.
We were never taught how to return to no-thought.
This is my area of expertise. The realm of no-thought. Not the blank you might imagine, but peace and clarity, instead.
Awareness and readiness to engage with whatever the moment brings, without the thought, that changes it from what it is, into what it isn’t.
Until we can return to this primal condition, at will, we’re all just left whistling Dixie.
