This was. fun talk. I enjoy when the talk release passion for an idea, for the exploration of an idea. That’s is where my passion is, in the exploration of Ideas and the application of these Ideas (wisdom) in my everyday mind. If you can’t apply truth to see if it works, truth has no meaning or use. If truth does not transform you, not giving you more information or knowledge , but transform the way you are in the world, change the shape of the cup not just the kind of soup, if truth doesn’t do that it is not Truth.
I have always been (I have no idea why) interested in changing the cup instead of the soup in the cup. It was the unconscious cup that was the cause of my pain of life I somehow knew. And again I don’t know where this came from. I certainly did not grow up in a philosophical house. I don’t remember any exploration in our family. My memories of my family are so dull that I have no memories….I have a few highlights of my personal experience at school and play…but my family life…nothing. My father was always at sea, but I only have a few memories of him being home, and most of those are negative.
Anyway…I guess it was the pain of the cup that made me interested in finding out what the cup—or the operating system of the mind is (using a modern metaphor). You can’t change the soups pain unless you change or SEE the cup and the soup are one. The outside and the inside are One…yet two. This is the awakening Truth that transforms your life.
The push/pull of male/female relationship is both violent and transformative. It is the operating system of life itself. Men are pushers, women are pullers. Men are the ones that look; women are the ones who are looked at. When in balance it is beautiful.
Men explore the territory controlled by women. Women create the boundary, yet tease the man to penetrate the barrier. Stay, come…stay…come…this double message drives men crazy. It peaks their energy, creating the surge needed to create life. Everyone Loves Raymond is a great place to see this dance in action.
