Mindful Knowledge Is Not Wisdom Of The Heart
None of your "knowledge" has brought you to the realization that you are this one that is looking through your very eyes right now and how "impersonal" this one is.
Wisdom begins with realizing that you do not know anything - and that means all of the philosophy, concepts and ideas that you carry around of what you think your self might be like or should be like. None of your "knowledge" has brought you to the realization that you are this one that is looking through your very eyes right now and how "impersonal" this one is. Your "knowledge" has not brought you relief from the pain and suffering that continues to frustrate you because of your continued belief in who you think you are. It is only when you begin to see that all of your "knowings" have not delivered you of anything but the idea that you think that you now "know" something that you did not "know" prior to the "knowing," that wisdom begins to shine its light. At this point you might be ready to accept something "real" instead of more knowledge. What is "real" is who you are. It is an inescapable fact and also the only fact that you have of yourself. You are. You can consciously be who you are because you already are the one that has always been true of you. It is what is looking through your eyes right now. When you bring your conscious attention to this "motion of seeing" that is flowing through your eyes you "become" this "aliveness" that is flowing through the eyes. In the immediacy of this "seeing" you are no longer perpetuating who you think you are. You have to let go of what you think you are. The moment that you forget to realize this one that is looking through your eyes you are then back to perpetuating who you think you are. It is as simple as this. You either consciously be who you are or you attempt to believe who you think you are over the top of the one that is already true of you and suffer the consequences of that belief. Who you are still is no matter what you do. Consciously be or unconsciously be - pretending to be who you think you are. You are that which everything arises out of. Be you and be inexplicably happy in the richness of the heart.
