  In reading scriptures and studying the doctrines, you should turn all words
right around and apply them to yourself. All the verbal teachings point to
the inherent nature of the immediate mirroring awareness. As long as this

vertical line Posted on Jun.02.2019 @ 04:59PM EDT by Bobwidget
Not only do I not have to focus on reality. Like its going somewhere? I don't even have to try to be aware of it. Here let me try not to be aware of reality. I'm straining. Well attention over focused can miss things. OK. No straining. Nope. Still here.

Not only do I not have to try my stimuli/response time is practically nil. I don't try to decipher stimuli. Its just all happening at the same time.

Totally relax the pesky imagined attention. Imagination.

We all think animals are fast. Yes. Physical reaction speed. But hardly deciphering. Confused very easy if offered multiple attention stimuli. Its why you offer a cat or dog one hand initially to pet them. Plus their attentions are easily controlled with a good stimuli.

Even bugs you can catch if offering a attention grabber.

Because we think the attention is natural in animals we should have one. But I grasped natural awareness which is really just being the body. Present. In reality. So I'm no animal. The definitive distinction between animal and sentient being.

vertical line So your saying the physical body is not automatically aware of reality?

Totally relax being focused because the physical being is automatically aware of reality.

Nothing can change this.

Do you feel the attention is good for mankind?

vertical line Mankind's fear of no spirit or ceasing to exist after death is not just our lack in faith god will take care of us or that he exists. Its total inability to see reality is god and he made us intelligent enough to imagine he don't exist in the first place. Its not about believing in god. That's weak. Its simply reality is everyone's creator.
