for sure
good thing to remember in our pushy world where we often push away what we are trying to draw near
only problem is we have to
be aware so that we recognise what we seek when it comes our way

ok, so
Be Aware

"Stupid is like pornography...you know it when you see it" -- from My Wife

this is false and revealed to b a consequencial reason of delusions about else

any objective move or expression is very intelligent otherwise it cant b existing object, when u know that existence is true then truth intelligence is the only justification of it

so when smthg or an expression look or sound stupid it means that the subject is over intelligence to know how to force itself subjective will upon intelligence

what is not intelligent so dont know what is around really to deal with is silent naive or innocent child like that would limit its expression or mean to what dont mean anything, it wont ever appear forcing a knowledge about things as if it really believes it being true
that is why strong expressions are always hypocrits meaning smthg else as the opposite for self comfort or business abuse

The essential qi

It is the essence of things that gives life to them.
Below, it gives birth to the five grains;
above, it is the ranks of stars.
Flowing between heaven and earth:
we call these ghosts and spirits.
Stored within the breast:
we call these sages.

This qi is
So bright! As though climbing to heaven.
So dark! As though entering the abyss.
So broad! As though permeating the sea.
So compact! As though residing within oneself.

This qi
Cannot be detained through physical force,
but may be brought to rest by force of virtue.
It may not be summoned by means of sound,
but may be received through one’s thoughts.

To guard it alertly without fail,
this is called perfect virtue.
When virtue is perfected wisdom emerges
and all the things of the world are grasped.

- Guanzi : The Inner Enterprise (~ 400 BCE)

An old man was driving home from town one afternoon. He noticed a car following him to closely. This went on for many miles all the way to the dirt road leading home. The old man was extremely angry by this time and pulled over quickly to let the other driver pass. As the other car passed the old man stuck his arm out the window displaying the bird. The other car speed off into the distance. The old man continued on his way. It wasn't long before the old man came across the tailgaters car flip over in a ditch. The old man grumbled and pulled over to assist. He approached the drivers side window and got down on all fours to look in. A young man stared back at him. The old man said only one thing as the young man thanked him over and over again. "Remember this son. The next time you are riding someone's a**. They maybe the one who stops and helps you ... or they maybe the one who passes you by."

so its more of a parable.

Real truth comes when we tell the truth
... about ourselves
... to ourselves
It is the only truth we can truthfully judge
... provided
we can truthfully abandon
... self delusion

The Unseen with whom there can be no pragmatic relations, unseizable, featureless, unthinkable, undesignable by name, whose substance is the certitude of One Self, in whom world- existence is stilled, who is all peace and bliss — that is the Self, that is what must be known.- Mandukya Upanishad


High beyond the Intelligence is the Great Self, beyond the Great Self is the Unmanifest, beyond the Unmanifest is the Conscious Being. There is nothing beyond the Being, — that is the extreme ultimate, that the supreme goal. - Katha Upanishad
