  1. It’s so sneaky and so subtle, and can be explained/explored in so many ways, it becomes useful to refine what we’re talking about through continued communication. Because the significance of it is so immense.
  2. Thought/fear seeks security in knowledge (movement of fear-thought) then thought/self identifies with the knowledge (movement of I-thought). But this is all thought seeking its own movement. Self-feeding loop indeed. fear, self, time, and thought are one and the same. This is the insight that is whole.
  3. Forgot to address this. You’re speaking of technical or practical knowledge. How to drive, knowing where to go, and so on. But knowledge can be much more pervasive than that when knowledge gets intertwined with self/identity (I’m a Buddhist, I’m smart/knowledgeable, I’m a nurse, etc.); when knowledge is intertwined with belief(as belief is a movement of seeking security); and when knowledge (or experience) is an attachment to memory/the past. This is the psychological knowledge faceless and I are speaking of. It’s the movement of knowledge that is also the movement of identity(self), fear/insecurity/belief, and time/attachment to the past. And so the movement of thought-self-psychological time sustaining its own movement. (3 dualistic terms for the same unitary movement).
  4. Same!
  5. I did - hehe. Attack on knowledge is attack on ego/thought-self because attachment/identification to this knowledge is one and the same movement of thought-self/ego.
  6. known perpetuates knower perpetuates known.
  7. Anna I’m just indicating potential thought traps to be avoided. Some may resonate and some may not. Hope that’s cool. if they don’t resonate with you, maybe it’ll catch someone else’s attention as well. I’m speaking to everyone.
  8. One trap of the ego/thought-self is to cross-compare two people sharing information, conceptually note that they are consistent with one another, and store it as knowledge/memory. This can be just the movement of the intellect/thought-self, self-perpetuating. When knowledge/memory is asserted, the past (time) is asserted. Time and thought-self are one and the same movement.
  9. I was noting the movement of knowledge-time in action. The tendency has to be paid attention to, to understand how thought-self seeks security in authority, concept, knowledge.
  10. There are no authorities, second-hand teachings, or memories/knowledge when it comes to the self-understanding, the insight we’re talking about. This is thought-self asserting time/knowledge, which is the same thing as saying thought-self asserting thought-self. Seeking security in its own movement.
  11. The unitary movement is astonishing. The apparent dualistic language we use to describe this unitary movement in words is astonishing too - haha. 50 ways to express something that’s one and the same.
  12. Thought attaching to thought breeds I-thought. Saying fear breeds fear, or desire breeds desire, or even fear breeds desire, is also saying the same thing. Self-fear-desire all movement of thought, seeking security in its own movement.
  13. I told you you were walking with me
  14. One can’t be speaking from memory, knowledge, belief (all the past).
  15. Has this been seen directly, wholly - in clear fact, or has thought-self identified itself with/clung onto the knowledge/concept to perpetuate itself?
