View Full Version : Catch 33

Hi Guys, thought I had a revelation, but it would means changing everything, my question is how can an Alchemist know how to act in these situations? Surely acting on each of these impulses would lead us into deep water, as well as upsetting family and friends (in the short term at least), this cant be right?!

Thankyou, Otove

From my view, when you're in presence there is no decision to be made - everything is apparent.
To decide/choose against that is the source of conflict.

If you're not in presence, then people seem to choose according to their knowledge and belief, or
perhaps they trust in someone else's knowledge. Since all knowledge is conditioned, it is common knowledge
and it doesn't really matter what we choose from that consciousness - no one cares how we decorate the
inside of the box, as long as we don't try to leave the box altogether.

So what is getting upset? The definition of oneself. And this will upset those defined by you, related to you, etc,...
those who want definition/condition.
So the unconditioned nature allows itself unconditionally. :)

I hope that makes sense.
