The sense-based thinking that runs the masses in search of material wealth cannot be carried forward. All that is seemingly made manifest is based in Mind, and only the Self-realized qualities of knowledge can be carried forward. That which is sensed is either compression or expansion of the thought waves that produce the illusion of manifest thought- what is there to be gained or lost by material possessions but the sensations of those two seemingly divided directions of motion? There is nothing but the effects of motion to be seemingly gained or lost for a period of non-existent time, for all things seeming simultaneously return to the voidness of their origin in stillness as they seem to appear in marching time.
All happiness is in knowing the qualities of the stillness of the cause that thinks to divide the stillness into balanced states of seeming motion. All happiness is in the wholeness of simultaneously thinking to conceive and complete idea in Mind through the balanced thinking to manifest a body in motion to simulate the still life of mental concept. There is no happiness to be found in the divided sensing of the simultaneously compressing and expanding body: happiness is knowing the wholeness of mental balance that backs the balanced expression of that body. Happiness is in the forgetting of the expression of life’s seeming duality between compression and expansion and the realization of the true life at rest that thinks the body into seeming being in a balanced fashion. Mentally knowing perfect balance between the motions of compression and expansion is happiness.
If knowing the mental balance backing the expression of a balanced body is happiness, what can there be but a false sense of joy, or a false sense of sorrow, in the attachment or aversion to the seeming duality of gaining or losing what is sensed of the material world? There is no truth to sense-based thinking that can only be based in the sensing of the seeming division between the two opposing-yet-unified states of motion that provide the illusion of idea in motion. There is no reality to motion. There is no identity to it. Reality and identity belong to Mind as static idea, not to the forms of idea expressed by the illusion of motion.
The identity and reality of Mind is never projected from the stillness of cause to the world of moving effects. So why project the Self as if to be contained by the world of illusion? Why say, ‘the Self is expanded, or compressed, dead or alive’ when the Self is still and never becomes the states of motion that comprise the illusion of embodiment?
Rest in the balanced thinking of the Self that is purely mental, purely idea – and know the eternal ecstasy of the Kingdom of Balanced Thinking that is forever within.
