Ted’s essays

take a step back

A touch of the philosophical is good for the brain.
I share this here so I may come back and ponder it from time to time.

So far I keep up with the thoughts until the last few lines. I think I need to work it over until I either understand or reject that last bit.

The link, by the way, takes you to one of the next-generation social media platforms that have evolved in response to the dark-forces takeover and evil application of the more popular ones. We were hoping the geeks would recognize the problem and use their specialties in creation of alternatives. They have. Now we just have to migrate to them.

Live in Truth, Simplicity, Love and Service

Observe the flow of emotions.

Up and down.

There is constant movement, change.

Don’t attach to the emotions of the moment. Attach to the real behind the movement.

Observe the movement, watch the emotion disappear. A new one takes its place. This is maya.

That which is temporary, changes frequently, is maya. Don’t attach to maya.

This is all temporary.

The body, emotions, relationships, wealth, power, knowledge … always changing, temporary. Understand? This body I am in is temporary. It too has emotions constantly changing.

I observe the movement of thought from its creation to its destruction.

Now listen carefully. The movement of thought is time.

Learn to observe thought and time becomes what it is. Maya.

Created by thought, divided by thought.

When the higher self observes, there is no movement, no time.

There is the eternal now where the ground of being exists.

The place of no-thing.

This is where I, who am no-body, come out of.

Do what your heart advises and all will be well.”
