Yes. You have to endure a very large number of boors before a live one shows up.
There's no better way to learn that most important skill of patience.

Absolutely.
I seek nobody's awakening, though, because this can not be.
I do seek to lay down accounts of another consciousness, not to deliver it to anyone, but to inspire/encourage them to discover it for themselves.

Well writ! That's the spirit! I've had so many dreams of flying unassisted, literally walking/jumping into the air, when nobody else could, and then all those power lines keeping me down...
It's been many years now, since I had those dreams, but surely it is a good sign that you also have (or had) them.
Thank you for putting your dreams out here for us :)

Easy on the bunny-talk:
I've been looking after a sick bunny for a year now, and the little sucker still isn't healed.
But my wife loves it, and so we must continue to serve its every need.
So we do.

It doesn't just happen, but it will never happen at all until it is begun.

It means all the new-agey stuff doesn't count for much when reality steps in.

It neither added or complemented. It took what was, and turned it into rubbish.
But that is a great example of what people so often do to anything they fail to grasp:
They automatically convert it into something they do grasp.
And so add nothing to what they know, while making sure nobody else can either.

Wrong again. It may seem absurd, but it is not what it seems. It is what it is.
How many people do you know who just are?
They are a seething mess of contradictions and angst.
Lose all that, and maybe then you can just be.
Just being, is living without the madness that people assume is living.
It is as different as chalk is from cheese.

Deconstruction deconstructs. Demolishes. Wrecks. How can it do anything else?
I don't wreck stuff. I build stuff. Every day.

I don't know how you manage so consistently to not understand anything, but there you've done it again.
What I wrote stands. It is true. It works. Take it or leave it (alone).

Certainly we are 'speaking past each other'. This is a phenomenon that dogs me.
There is no effective way to explain what I always attempt to explain, and that I do attempt to explain for the very reason that it is such a priceless thing. It is, apparently, inexplicable. But it operates as I have said. No processing. If you're able to perform this feat, that actually is the total absence of any feat, then everything changes.

Why do I do this thing, anyway, if it is so impossible, and so thankless?
Imagine if a man discovered that it was, indeed, possible for a human to fly, unassisted. He would, in all likelihood, be ardently interested in sharing that with other people, no? Maybe he wouldn't, but I would.
And then imagine everyone getting really angry at him, and abusing him, because everybody 'knows' people can't fly.
He gets called an idiot, and a moron. Yet he is able to fly, when nobody else can.

That's about the size of it. I have knowledge of something that is far too big to not share.
But it is impossible to successfully share it.
What would you do?

I would say that observing or reading actively is exactly the opposite to being able to see what it is, or what it contains. Active suggests mental processing, and no wisdom ever came of that. Only knowledge. Whatever that is.

This is the difference - a profound one - between consideration and contemplation.
The first processes information. The second allows what is there to become apparent, without processing it.

This difference is the thing most impossible to convey to anyone who knows nothing else but processing.
There is a whole alternate but complementary cosmos of input to be contemplated, rather than processed.
The final frontier, you could say.

Philosophy implies there is meaning to life, and attempts to define that meaning.
Or that there is none, and attempts to define why that is so.
It operates through intellect.

Wisdom clearly sees that there is life, and discovers how best to live it.

Intellect seeks meaning in things.
Wisdom seeks none. It accepts what is, and makes the most of it.

Life is for living, not analyzing.
