Re: [Meditation Society of America] Introvert v extrovert
- Hi Tony,
It means the dissection of reality, it means cutting to the quick
of how self is defined, as well as, what one takes as not-self. It's
a disposition of bounderies between what is sensed and that which
It means, if you know words or any other object, like thought,
it's as the reflection of the interpersonal in relation to the
extropersonal contrast of self.
Irregardless of mind or the thinker of thoughts, the sensor
is the vanishing point that does not need to maintain qualities
of it's own, like a silent mind or a healthy body. Nor does it get to
keep those qualities for itself, it wouldn't want to since everything
thing that defines it's presence, including it's desire, is the
of the reflection of self to other.
The amazment of the thinking mind get's resolved. It is
clear that there is no permanence to it or any other object that
it finds to be always the case, or in which holds a property like
truth, there is dissolution of self as taken to be any such property.
-Peace and Love
