Yesterday one of my long time students surprised me with sending me a ‘meme’ that had a quote from one of my articles.
No coincidences in the world… if you have a wide enough cone of vision you’ll know that.
We’ll explore the drama that is hidden in this sentence. Because there is drama, oftentimes tragedy there.
Sidenote: As I was looking for suitable images for this article, I was struck by the overwhelming confusion about intelligence, the brain’s role in it, meditation, and brain exercises. Most of what is written is horsh!t… truth value: 0%.
1. So I’ll being with the word coincidence… coincidence means two things happen that are not connected… (a remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection.)
Someone is born on 9/11… the same day airplanes are flown into buildings… and people die. The two events are not connected.
What culture am I talking about? The homo sapiens culture. The culture of the mind. The cult of the mind.
I am not the first person to talk about it, talk against it… Not even the second… lol.
But it is all in vain… The mind, unattended, will continue doing what the mind does: worry about the past, worry about the future, and be completely clueless about what’s going on.
Especially clueless about the effect it has on you and the quality of your life: how you feel about yourself and about your life.
In fact, your mind considers you simply a vehicle, and I don’t think you expect yourself worrying about your vehicle’s emotions… after all it’s a thing… isn’t it? Its job is to carry you around.
And even in olden times, when horses were the main vehicles: the riders didn’t much worry about the emotions of the horse… they probably worried about feeding it and getting it water… washing it, etc. but not its emotions.
