if that were true then a chemical could make one a genius...
quit trying to give an intelligent answer and really look at it....
so when thoughts come and go does that mean that
chemicals are not stable that they also come and go?
what chemical composition comprises the word OM ?
very quickly one can see that this doesn't hold water.....

of things? chasing and second guessing thoughts is not
looking deeply into the nature of things... that is simply creating
more surface motion... you need to observe ... patiently.....
then question.... then equiry will begin..... when one get's sick
and tired of it all..... then they will start to enquire and will
confront themselves head on ... then barriers will fall.....
