The angel devil shoulder deal is just the normal everyday fractured schizophrenic thinking people do... positive and negative arguing for some resolve
or resolution to act out some intent via body speech with the "mind" most intentions have consquences of that bipolar thinking, and pretty much all of
those choices are ego based around a self that inherently does not exist, experiences held onto as if no one else has ever had them as a past, is
grasping from a base wit no real basis in self and other conditioning. We do this as a species trying to adapt from birth to an alien world filled
with concepts to learn, agendas to tow lines of and are taught all the hate and greed like a disease.
Babies only know discomfort of contact with an experience not yet defined, a cold wet diaper is obviously not comfortable... so the child crys, the
feeling of hunger or lonilnes and the chhild crys... all all this path people build coping mechanisms some healthly and some not so healthy, and well
the thinking mind either uses logic grrr man must solve issue, or emotional that hey maybe thats not such a good idea feminine to balance that animal
unter gatherer logic... so clinging to such natures the pecking order and all of that nonsense there is a lot of repression of expression of oneself
and all manner of coping to go along with it, which is the whole basis of human sociology.religion, philosophy and psychology.
The real thought disorder is grasping after thought as that buiilds the conceptual we condition ourselves and others with, all seeking some comfort
and happiness... grasping after such selfish egoism is what gives rise to all personal and interpersonal problems, victims and the victomizers when
most everything beyond, food, elimination of waste, a dry place to sleep is a luxury... everything else is just an addition on a house that bears no
real weight, of course people grow accustomed to these additions, expect those additions demand those additions crave and desire those additions...
when they are really moot to happiness, when they become a deteriment to happiness... all there is, is fleeting moments of happy and sad a see saw of
up and down with the positive and negative as a volition trying to find some sustainable balance in that equation somewhere.
Its a conceptual world where the bubble of that reality can pop at any time, and the next thing one knows there is no longer any balance, and watever
stability was once again lost, and well pick up dust of and try again... eventually a great dispassion for all of this nonsense arises and people look
for someting else, as a reason or purpose for being but it is just the same, a belief is an imaginary balloon that one can pretend is always there to
smile at them. Why? When there is actual things one can make contact with that have solidity, why trust a whole or part of human civilization on an
intangible quasi reality that people only want to fight argue and kill each other over?
Beyond such graspings at shadows, mirages and concepts where could a suffering be found? Except in that positive negative and imbalance between
them... thought is a burden that shifts weights constantly, between self other then now and all other extremes, separate all experience one has ever
had and share it, youre not alone others ave had them, in some way shape or form... grabbing that conglomerate of experience that always varies on
contact and never the same experience as previous as a self is just a limiting condition closed off to experience, and aserts their conditioning to
phenomina with an absolute certainty... with cognitive dissonance that that it how it is and cant and wont ever change... and by golly no one else can
state an experience facet of it otherwise...
So is any of that real? No its imagined, it temporary, its impermaent and not solid at all the only thing asserting it is... is a self and others
affirming hey me too buddy until of course theres a divergence then poof alone again to wrestle with that field of nonsense echoing dust and shadows
in the mind trying to resolve itself. That is suffering beyond tose limited attachments self asserting? the eternal, the permanent, happiness
unconditioned, a present that continually arises moment by moment, that requires nothing to be complete or perfect in and of itself as it is. Of
course having thus gone beyond? the attachments and graspings of others is like seeing beings writhing, struggling, suffering and so very much
needlessly so... having empathy and compassion knowing that struggle, one points one humors one invigorates one makes the attachments not so prone to
pain and suffering by showing that it all spins due to greed, hate and the ignorant delusions that is is anything but conditioned attachments to the
conceptual like pies being thrown in our own and others faces not knowing any better...
I know people get mad or upset having their make believe shaken up, but grasping at it as reality when its not, perpetuating it as reality when its
not, is the very cause and support for all of that suffering to begin with... so what I say matters not as far as belief is concerned... it is what it
is im not defining it, its impossible without direct experience... but damnit if words cant get it close like right on the edge... hopefully, people
take the next step and let it all fall away when they have a moment to sit and let thought cease its assertions of name and form to be grasped when
matter is just there not requiring such attachments or mental placements.
