THE RELATIVE MIND 4\7\08
We live 99% of the time in our relative minds. This is the mechanical measuring, analyzing, judging mind that reacts to memories. This relative mind is created by experiences, pleasure and pain experiences. This mind is the product of space and time assumptions, backed by emotional charges. The accumulation of experiences fortifies an illusional center called “me, not you”. This mind is not really creative, it modifies and rearranges the “me not you”, in positions of puffed up victories or agonizing defeats. This relative mind deducts conclusions and projects them into an image oriented future to re-experience these conclusions which are still mechanical reactions. This is the karma mind that Buddhism points to. To see all the implications of this false mind, if only for an instant, is to be free of its attachments. To be constantly here and now, without choice or gaining ideas is the complete destruction of this karma ridden mind. The ego fears the end of its illus ional life more than anything; in fact, fear is the engine that drives the relative mind to continue its reactive passion plays. To move with the totality of life is the function of our real mind, or spirit. Here everything is new, innovative, abundant, blessed and joyful. This is the flow of creation. Sooner or later our mind must awaken to its Pure Identity. This is the inherent promise of Love that everyone is entitled to. .
