Self-Improvement & Physical Practices
- View SourceTo the very ear of your ear,
... And to the Silence and
Openness of the "Heart":
Physical practices have
a limit, as do all self-
Controlling action with an
agenda keeps one confined to
a pattern, and caught in the
conflict of overcoming.
There is the pleasure of achievement,
and the pain of failure, both which
results in a preoccupation with the "I",
the "self" - the "me" and the "mine".
In this way I am all the time
self-consciously "becoming more
or becoming less", as I measure,
and try to control "my progress".
So the sense of an egotistical
self can become more solidified
each time I try to improve myself
with some daily agenda, and the
more I enforce it, the more I loose
the freedom of spontaneity.
The mind does not know the way
to the "Unknown", and that is
why it is so essential to FEEL
the spontaneity of the "Heart",
and to let it dominate - to let
it have duration, so that it can
overcome all the ignorance and
pettiness of the mind.
... Only then can there be "Freedom".
Then Heart knows "The Way", but the
mind does not. The mind can only
accumulate negative or positive
vanity - in its sense of achievement
or failure, and in the sense of an
entity becoming more or less,
... Because the mind does not have
the power of "Being".
