Life is Real (And Only Then) When You Are Out of Your Mind

It has been said that in order for there to be pristine understanding, mind must be still and only then will that quiet mind be capable of objective discernments. It is true that the chattering mind must be still for true understanding to express itself but that knowing is not expressed through mind.

Mind has no function in reality, it simply does not exist. Mind is a myth, an aberration of the memory-senses complex. Mind can only repeat what has been fed to it. Mind is incapable of any kind of independent thought. Thoughts are not self-generated.

When this phenomenon is witnessed through pristine awareness, then mind can no longer be taken seriously and as a result it ceases to function. What functions is the timeless expression of Intelligence as seen through the lens of pristine consciousness.


Through the power of the brain, unsettling social problems cannot be solved. In the field of relationship the living organism is incapable of such problems and so under any circumstances, not designed to solving them.

The brain (an instrument of the physio-biological organism) has as its grand design the ability to facilitate the body’s harmonious functioning.

The brain is not mind. Mind is an aberration of the memory-senses complex. The pristine consciousness is un-knowingly supplying mind with the energy so that it can fulfill its imaginary fantasies. Mind is a myth, a figment of its own imagination.

Something that has no existence cannot solve anything. The brain is not a thinking instrument but rather a regulatory function over-seeing the complex body functions. Its prime directive does not extend beyond.

There are no psychological problems. Those problems are an aberration that immediately vanish when seen through the witnessing lens of pristine awareness. Mind is not a solution. Mind is the problem.
