Reducing input is increasing space
it seems intelligent
key is to have inner space too
which is related to outer space
but most people are too busy inwardly and lack space
they're too full
and they don't know the art of emptying.
When they have problems they go to therapists which sometimes fills them instead of emptying them
Because nobody can do the work for us
we have to do it on our own
take the bucket and empty the waters out
writing is a great way
talking to a good friend
it has to be done playfully - without making it into a problem
if it's approached as a problem it gets worse
the problem-solver is the problem itself
happiness lies in the ending of the psychological me center self I... and not making it stronger.
with inner quietness comes space
and one can be in a noisy place - and among influences - but still be quiet - still - nothing - just be.
to think clarity is important in this insane world
otherwise thought just adds to the neurosis that's around us
thought is a sharp knife - for practical technical mechanical areas it's perfect
in psychological areas it's deadly
it is the very structure of the self
it needs to see its own limits - the mind to see thought's limits - and naturally get quiet - not out of choice or to reach something.
Space is also needed for love
Things of the mind kick love out
Not just because they take space
But also because they're divisive in their nature
The nature of thought is to bring division
The manifestation of it is the outer world with increasing nationalistic and religious divisions
And more and more therapists and suicide and misery (In the last 45 years suicide rates have increased by 60% worldwide).
And endless wars in a world which has always spoken of peace
It seems this is related to a corrupt tradition
And love is whole
