WHERE ARE THE LEFT-RIGHT…LEFT-RIGHT
Has anyone been in the state of neutral recently? How about YOU ? or… someone you can actually touch ? If one is NEUTRAL can this STATE be recognised by any of the marchers?
To be neutral is a rare state of BEING. It is not a posture derived from being unconcerned about how others evaluate you. It is not a high moral ground from where you can safely ridicule the stressed-out marchers.
How people suffer whilst struggling to appear RIGHT! I'm not talking about technical rightness. Driving on the right side of the road . Getting it right when landing a jumbo jet. I'm talking about the IDEA that one can be right on moral issues.
If you believe you can be RIGHT then you believe there are those who are wrong. You will further believe that those who are wrong….will also be wrong in not recognising the grounds for why you are sure you are right.
IT'S THE VIEWPOINT BATTLEGROUND or WORD AND BLOOD WHIRLD WAR.
So why do people want to be RIGHT? Is it because they are AFRAID of being wrong? Is it like winning and losing? What is the REWARD for being RIGHT? Is it a winner's ATTITUDE?
ATTITUDE IS THE INTERFACE BETWEEN EGO-CONSCIOUSNESS AND THE WHIRLD.
So it looks like the AIM is to inhabit an attitude which makes one invulnerable to those who are WRONG. What happens to the inhabitant inside the impregnable castle? Is the castle a cocoon? Or an EGG?
THE BEFORE AND AFTER EXERCISE.
Once one inhabits a superior attitude one loses contact with BEING. The attitude does the talking…and whatever else IT decides. The attitude transforms the potential human being into a ROBOT.
So maintaining one is morally RIGHT is a robotic condition.
It's like there are two trash cans…one for those who are RIGHT…and the other for those who are WRONG. Which one will you find Stalin in? Which one will you find Hitler in? Which one will you find Winston Churchill in? Which one will you find Rudolph Valentino in? Which one will you find Margaret Thatcher in? Which one will you find Tony Blair in?
`That I lost my centre
fighting the world'
Exactly. This is what dying Ezra Pound wrote at the end. This, even years after writing lines like:-
What thou lovest well remains
the rest is dross….
What thou lovest well is thy true heritage
What thou lovest well shall not be reft from thee
Those last lines were written twenty years before…whilst imprisoned by the American Army in a barbed wire cage..in sub-zero temperatures outside of Pisa…with arc-lights blasting down on him twenty-four hours a day.
What does it mean `to lose one's centre'? It means an ATTITUDE has taken over and rules you. You've become a prisoner of the left/right conned-senses mind. That world which Ezra Pound said he'd been fighting , is a whirld of competing viewpoints. The viewpoints are the vehicles and weapons of conflicting robotic attitudes.
The world is not THE EARTH. The Earth is being crucified by the whirld. Is being destroyed by blind, marching, rampant egotism..
Have you noticed how MATCHING UNIFORMITY rules? Yes, this middle-class, bureaucratic, business, lawyer, military mind-SET which you have to be a slave of in order to rule, is omnipresent. The business suit….the business smile. LIES LIES LIES.
The whirld is a system exploiting the Earth…fought over by bullies and liars. The military/police and business/politicians.
So…are you a real, Earth person…or a slave of the whirld?
Did you know that the SIXTIES hippy, flower-power revolution had nothing to do with SEX and rock 'n roll?
Did you know that Zen has got nothing to do with buddhism?
Do you know what it means to be spiritually ACTIVE?
Do you know what it means to be mentally ALIVE?
Do you know what it means to BE ACTUALLY HONEST?
Do you know what it means TO THINK?
I have not said that being NEUTRAL is a positive state to be in. Those who think they are RIGHT…believe that being RIGHT is a positive approach to existence. Positive and negative signify the same trash cans as RIGHT/WRONG.
Probably more than 90% of the destruction suffered by the Earth and its people…has been caused by POSITIVE people who fervently believed they were RIGHT.
What about so called negative people? Quite often they are people who are fed up with being pushed around by so called `positive' people. They tend to be pessimistic about the possibility that the positive 'robots' will ever let them BE. Although they are too intelligent to be sucked into the rat race…they often get caught in various forms of self-indulgence. In a whirld dominated by murderers and liars so very few ever discover what it means TO LIVE in a space which is neutral..
The space which is neutral can not be perceived. . Neutral is the space of innocence which perceives. This innocence is always innocent…meaning it can never be stained by expereience. You can have thoughts about the perceiver…and perceive those thoughts…but the perceiving SPACE of innocence can-not be perceived. Imagined? Yes . Conceptualised? Yes. Talked about for ever? Yes.
Wanting to define what the perceiving space is…is a form of madness. Wanting to objectify and analyse everything is a part of the Western Academic Agenda. Very well…but the innocent perceiving neutral space can not be objectified.
So, is the perceiving space consciousness? If you think consciousness indicates understanding or know-how …then the word consciousness does not indicate the innocent perceiving space. Put it this way…if I was to say that consciousness is the innocent, neutral perceiving space…then I must add that this consciousness has no perceivable attributes. Sub-atomic particles have attributes like SPIN etc, etc, but this perceiving space is innocent of all such attributes.
Well what is the point of me mentioning this if it can't be REGISTERED ON AN INTRUMENT…or defined adequately? It's like what's the point in saying anything if the top-dogs don't agree? Positive minds demand coherent definitions. Negative minds demand freedom from positive instalations. To be really hip is to live outside that battleground.
To be neutral is not to be a loser. It has NOTHING TO DO WITH COMPETITION. It has nothing to do with fear. It can perceive fear. It can perceive what is generally called death or dying. It is never what is perceived.
IT IS REAL FREEDOM.
The fragrance and fullness of the un-planned moment
