Mark: What I am really driving at in my own thoughts, and which
I would like to place before you is: "We" ourselves, as an
"Identity," are not any of the planes or states that we observe
or pass through, or make use of.
"We" are not them.
They are effects, situations, tools, components.
We are the detached observer. If we lend our creative will to
any one of those "conditions," for the moment we "are" there, in
them, and participate. When we are through, we withdraw, and
then, we can select (or fall) into another state or condition.
The "businessman" is one, the "artist" is another, and the
"family man in the bosom of his family," is a third, and so on --
kaleidoscopic changes -- but at the center is the One Eye, the
Seer, who knows what lenses he is looking through, and what
faculties he needs (or shapes to put his actions into) to work in
and through those changes.
We do have "problems" if we are unable to effect that withdrawal,
or change as we will it.
In this I sense that there is in the WILL a superior power to
that of the "desire." And, who is the "Willer" within us ?
But, what do you think ? Dal
