reality beyond the illusion of personality
The eye can see, but cannot see itself ..
The fire can burn, but cannot burn itself ..
How can the mind think it can change its mind ..?


People are obsessed with the behavior of moving into the dichotomy of the silence of the still mind - because this is what they have been taught - a behavior learned as children - that they should be silent - "Children should be seen but not heard"

Taming the Monkey Mind

By its very nature, the mind cannot be still - cannot be silent. Thus the dichotomy - and the frustration - the creation of another self inflicting weapon of inadequacy.

The Metamorphosis of Eastern and Western Mind

The Western Mind sees things from an opposite perspective to the Eastern Orientated Mind - on which the basic tenets of Transpersonal Psychology are based.

The traditional languages of the East are kinesthetic - they are feeling and knowing - not emotive and expressive - where the resonance of the phonetics are the sounds which make up the whispering sounds of the flow of soundlessness.

The English Language has become reactionary where the diphthongs become plosive in an expression of emotionally charged attachment to thought - especially where the language is a learned behavior of expression - as is taught in most schools - often under threat and duress.

Thus the Eastern mind responds to the resonance and the Western Mind is reactionary. Thus, the Western orientated "Left Brain" sees things personally according to how it perceives an unconscious or subconscious personality may have been triggered into a self-defense (survival) reaction, according to its attachment to an identity.


People talk about the ego - forgetting that within the Psyche of Psychology there exists both polarities of Negative and Positive Ego. The linear left brain of the Western Mind is logical in sequence and can only process one "bit" of information at a time.

Compared to the linear Left Brain, the Oriental Mind is a multiple processor able to process multiple data streams simultaneously - something that happens within the first 10 milliseconds of its impetus to action.

The Left Brain - which has become to be called the Mind grasps onto the single most reactionary thing it sees in this data stream and deals with it according to learned behavior - an "if-then" loop - forgetting, as it does so, that the signal it is reacting to is the inversion of the information packet it has received - created by the medulla existing between the cerebrum and the cerebellum.


People dive deeply into the Psychology of the Transpersonal in a hope that it may provide a mystical panacea to resolve their inner conflicts - so taking on another personality as they seek to prop up their experience or justify their learning according to the dis-information provided by some other entity who they take on as their authority .. thus living life by proxy.

Transpersonal or "No-Mind" is the evolutionary stepping stone beyond the Psychologies of the Ego, the Behavior, the Existential, the Humanistic etc .. etc .. and only happens when the mind is either totally exhausted from the struggle - or otherwise decides not to fight the futility of a seeming endless stream of "ologies" - more of which are invented every day as the patented, trademarked, greatest and best solution the personality condition that the mind creates through the conditioned thinking process that "the more I know, the more I will be respected/accepted" .. 

When - in fact, Enlightenment is nothing more than having the words to express what you already know in a language that can be heard and understood without creating a reaction from anyone's shadow.

For me, it is quite funny to "see" these learned people walking around with disembodied heads under their armpits as they hold on so tightly to the "wisdom of some guru". 

Its even funnier when one also realizes that many of these heads have metamorphosed into dust centuries before. Thus, the knowledgeable have, as the authority for their pseudo-beingness, the words of people who have been dead for a very long time.

How many times can we read that "so-and-so said ....." - when the reality is that "so-and-so" never spoke English - a language which may not have even existed during the epoch we try to re-invent in the present as the model for our existence.

Thus, under the layers of conditioned thought and behavior, that which you are looking for, you already are - and were as a child new born into this world.

What you are looking for is that which is looking - the seeker is the sought in the act of seeking - and the tree falling in the forest does not make a sound unless there is someone there to first hear the tree falling and then interpret the change in the flow of air movement according to what it has learned.

When you go for a walk in the forest, you place one foot in front of the other - and you place one foot on the ground after the other one.

Time is how long it takes for you to react when you see the grizzly standing in front of you ..

Survival is how much distance you can place between yourself and the grizzly in the shortest time possible

The Transpersonal is knowing that there was a grizzly on that track and not being there in the first place. This is the awareness of "no-mind".
