  • Unconscious resistance is a mounting suffering born of refusing to see the following: the only way to change what is -- unseen for the most part -- a string of unwanted life experiences... is to die to the level of self that lives to not want what it keeps creating for itself. (8/16/17)

Then he says, "No, it is the emptiness of life that's the illusion," because the fullness of life is upon him.

  • Part 1

    It's said that 2 things are certain in life: death and taxes; while this old saw may be true, it shines no light whatsoever on the deeper truth that hides within it, as follows: in this world of passing time -- whatever it makes, or that is made out of it -- will be undone.

  • Psychological fear is a real-time experience of an unwanted moment imagined as being on its way; it -- this fear and its creator -- are as one; the interaction of these opposites is the almost ceaseless exercise of an unconscious level of self that loves to imagine a threat... So that it can keep having the self-created negative experience of trying, in vain, to protect itself from its own dark dreams. (7/9/17)

  • It's impossible to be identified with a negative state unless you have an unseen stake in the reason for its appearance. (7/7/17)
