In order to be able to see something as a whole there must be no inner calculator


To see the wholeness is extremely difficult, while it is fairly easy to see a fragment.

In order to be able to see something as a whole - and that will say: to see it rational, healthy and completely - there must be no inner spectator, doubter or calculator.

There must neither be any disproportion between the feeling and its object, or between the action and its occasion.

Your life must be real, so that you fully and completely exist and the important is present.

Fully and completely to exist will say that you are what you are in action with.

Where the unreal life is characterized by, that the dreamer, the spectator, the doubter within you, slides in between, creates reflections, displacement and darkness, there the real life is characterized by fulfilment, middle and light.

In order to make the inner calculator disappear, you must be present in passive listening.

The cause of anxiety can´t be found in the content of anxiety


The cause of anxiety can´t be found in the content of anxiety.

The cause shall be found in the separation of the analyst and the analysed.

You have the existential condition, the anxiety.

This is the fact, it is not in itself a problem.

Then the analyst places himself outside the anxiety, analyses it in order to discover the cause of it, compares with earlier and hopes and desires something else, namely to get rid of it.

The analyst slides therewith off from the Now´s fact.

And the Now´s facts, seen from the analysts´ past or future, become a problem, anxiety-causing.

When the analyst is seeking the cause of the anxiety by comparing with earlier, and by desiring something else, he only isolates himself further, and therewith increases the anxiety.

The past meets the new as the recurrence of the same


The consciousness, the Ego, which is standing outside because of conflict, constitutes the complete process of experience in which something is designated and registered.

You approach the challenge, on any level, with a set of experiences, some images of life, a perspective, which manifests itself as ideas, conclusions, prejudices; that will say: you give your experience a name.

This designation gives the experience a special quality, a quality, which is connected with the name.

The name origins from the memory.

The past meets the new as the recurrence of the same. The challenge is met with memory, with the past. But the past´s reaction can´t understand the living, the new, the challenge; the past´s reaction is not sufficient, and therefore there arises conflict, and that will say ego-consciousness.

The conflict ends when this process of designation doesn´t take place.

Self-forgetful thinking, this aware and understanding presence, is the richness of life


We are ceasing being creative, when we imitate, when we as natural beings only reacts on the bases of memories.

Answers from the memory are usually called thinking.

But such thinking is only reactions from those preconceived conceptions, which are memory.

It is only a reaction in the brain and not real thinking.

There is only real thinking, when there isn´t any reaction from the memory.

In this awake and passionate emptiness there is creation. And when you are in this condition all stimuli and demands of life vanish.

This self-forgetful thinking, this aware and understanding presence, where you have your being with you in your experience, where the experience constitutes the whole of your being´s fullness – it is this deep thought´s vibrant silence, this wordless realization, this creative spontaneity, which is the richness of life.

In philosophical sense the thought must rest, so that the anxiety in existential sense can stop


The thought is necessary on some levels, but when the thinking in philosophical sense projects itself as the past and the future, and produces anxiety as well as secureness, the mind is becoming absent, and the inevitable result hereof is unreality, emptiness, boredom and ennui.

So in philosophical sense the thought must rest, so that the anxiety in existential sense can stop.

Real thinking is the wholeness of the thinker and the thought


The thinking is seeing itself as something passing, in constant change, and therefore it produces the thinker as a constant entity, as separate from the thought, different from it.

Then the thinker works in on the thought, divides, accepts and denies, accentuates and excludes. But all the time there is only the thinking.

No more than we can place ourselves outside life, no more can the thinker place himself outside the thought. It is an illusion, a self-deceit.

The experience of this truth is of great importance for the Life Artist.

Real thinking is the wholeness of the thinker and the thought; it is the thinking, where you are one with the thought, with your possibilities and your past, yes, the thinking, where there not at all is any inner thinker, but only the thinking, which happens in a satisfactory way.

This is the self-forgetful way of thinking.

Merely to get information or knowledge is not to learn in philosophical sense


The function of the mind is to investigate and learn.

To learn in philosophical sense doesn´t only mean to cultivate the memory, or to accumulate knowledge, but to learn to think clearly and rational without illusions, to start with facts and not with beliefs and ideals.

When the thought originates from the conclusion, you learn nothing.

Merely to get information or knowledge is not to learn in philosophical sense.

To learn in philosophical sense includes love of understanding, and love of doing a thing for its own sake.

Man has tied himself to a way of life, which leads to war, and yet he wants peace


In philosophy as an art of life an investigation of dualism will be an investigation of, whether there exists a way of life without any division between living and dying, conscious and subconscious, business and social life, individual life and family life.

The divisions between nations, religions, classes, etc., originate from the contradiction-filled limitations in yourself.

The question of the Philosophical Globetrotter is therefore, why human beings live in this way?

The inner conflicts grow confusion, division and war; they develop actual insecurity, inwards as well as outwards. We see this division in so many ways – in God and Devil, in good and evil, in what you are and what you ought to be.

Why has Man always created a conflict in himself, and in the relationship with others, and consequently violence, and the hope about achieving something through violence?

Man has tied himself to a way of life, which leads to war, and yet he at the same time wants peace and freedom; but it is peace and freedom exclusively as an idea, an ideology.

And at the same time Man is historical limited by everything he does.

Everything must be looked at in the critical light, where you neither justifies or condemns


The Idler must be critical towards everything in life, your short or long hair, your dress, the way whereon you walk, the way whereon you eat, what you think, what you feel – everything must be looked at in the critical light, where you neither justifies or condemns.

Then the mind becomes extraordinary sensitive, alive and reasonable.

And such a mind allows life to flow back to the present, where the heart opens itself in love.

Only such a mind knows what a happy and real life is.

Only a philosophical life-practice can pass the threshold to the whole


If you, in order to recognize a door among many other doors, draw a cross on it, then the cross functions.

But if you draw a cross on all doors (as in H.C. Andersen´s The Tinderbox) then the cross loses its symbol-function.

Therefore you can´t say anything about the whole, and therefore you can´t have any images of life, which can create harmony.

Only a philosophical life-practice can pass the threshold to the whole.

It is only the silent mind, which is seeing


When you realize the fact, that it is only the silent mind, which is seeing, yes, then the mind strangely enough becomes silent.

It is as seeing a danger and avoiding it.

Because when it is seen, that the mind must be completely silent, then the mind actually becomes silent.

And if it then can listen without interpretations, without that prejudices intervene in order to distort – listens as you perhaps listen to a bird, which sings, without commenting and giving a name.

Where absence weaves images, presence releases the mind for images


Where absence weaves images, presence releases the mind for images.

This is very simple.

If you become thoroughly present in passive listening when you for instance are angry, then it is not absence, which allows the past to push itself in and create reflections, and disturbing the actual sensation of the immediate anger.

It is something else, which releases you.

In the one who is alone, life is timeless; in the one who is alone, there is no death


That which is alone is flexible and therefore persistent.

Only those who are alone can co-operate with that which is without cause, the immense.

In the one who is alone, life is timeless; in the one who is alone, there is no death.

The one who is alone can never cease with being, because alonebeing is life itself, the eternal flowing alonebeing of life.

The physical and the non-physical are altogether a whole


Is there a difference between the brain and the mind?

The physical brain which is a result of the past, which is a product of evolution, of many thousand yesterdays, with all its memories, knowledge and experiences - this brain is a part of the total mind – the mind, which contains a conscious and an unconscious plane.

The physical and the non-physical are altogether a whole.

It is through thinking, evaluation, that you divide it in the conscious and the subconscious, the brain and the non-brain.

As a Life Artist you must observe the entire thing as a whole, instead of fragmented.

The mind denies seeing the things in their presence without the word and the symbol


The mind denies seeing the things directly, to see them in their presence without the word and the symbol.

You for instance say, that the sky is blue. The one who hears it, interprets it from the conception he has about blue and reproduces it to you in his own code. In that way we live in symbols, and dreams are a part of this symbolic process. We are not able to perceive directly and immediate without the symbols, the words, the prejudices and the conclusions.

The reason for this is clear enough: It is a part of the self-centred becoming something, the will to power with its defence, resistance, escape and anxiety, and where you shut yourself away from life, are getting absent in evaluations and analyses, and where emptiness and loss slide in between, create reflections, displacement and darkness.

In this unreal state reality can only communicate itself symbolic.

The symbol is a telescopying, a representing quintessence of the wholeness, the information-quantities, and the greater clarity, which is connected with reality and presence, but which the absence can´t contain, because it splits, shuts itself inside, or shuts itself away from.

If you just take the thinking as a presumption, the mind will never be silent


If you just take the thinking as a presumption you don´t investigate further, yes, then the mind will never be silent, so that it can listen to the noise of its own battles and pains.

But both Stoics, Epicureans, Taoists and Buddhists, instead say: ”Be simple and don´t try to become something else than what you are, or to catch up some kind of experience”.

The thinker is the creator of the one or the many problems


The creator of the problems is the thinker.

The problems don´t exist separate from the thinker.

The thinker is the creator of the one or the many problems.

When the thinker places himself outside the problems, the facts, then the problems will continue, because he creates the problems, precisely by differentiating from them and concerning himself with them, by comparing the facts with earlier and by hoping and desiring something else.

He is then the facts absent by being either in the bygone or the coming time.

It is an absence of something for the thinker hidden, an absence of something complicated, veiled, an absence in uncertainty.

But if the thinker is the thoughts, the problems, present in passive listening, then he can – because he himself is the creator – begin to realize himself, without concerning about the problems, or the thoughts.

You are then totally existential present in the Now.

The smaller is in the larger, but the larger is not in the smaller


If the individual person only acts in a special corner of the extensive area of life, then he acts without any connection with the wholeness.

You must therefore remember, that philosophy always talks about the wholeness, not a part of it.

The smaller is in the larger, but the larger is not in the smaller.

The individual person is the tiny image-limited, stagnated and despairing being, who is satisfied with his tiny gods and his tiny traditions, whereas the welfare and weal of all, the sum of the world´s necessity, misery and confusion, are lying Man on mind.

Some kind of will to power is always the cause of conflict


I think we must try to become clarified about our thought-process. Therewith is meant that you in your daily life must seek to be your will to power - and its miserable consequences and results - present.

When you realize the difference between the natural need and the will to power, then the right basis for your thinking is formed.

Some kind of will to power is always the cause of conflict, to unscrupulously national hate and masked brutality.

Unless you understand and get grip of your will to power, you will never be able to understand the reality, which is transcending all struggles and sorrows.

You must begin with yourself as a communicative being; that is to say: with your relationship with things and to your fellow men.

By being aware about what you are, you have a possibility for releasing yourself for conflicts


The thoughts and the feelings are limited by their own cause: the desire after becoming something, which is time-binding.

What creates a conflict in Man is the desire after becoming something: to have luck and progress here in the world and inwards: to achieve a result.

But as long as our thinking is concerned with time, with what we will achieve with our position, there will inevitably be this conflict.

The mind is after all a product of time. The thought builds on yesterday, on the past, and as long as the thought works within the area of time and is concerned with the future, with becoming something else, with winning and with achieving, there will be opposites, and then we can´t see the real, the Now, the existential conditions.

Only by realizing, by understanding, by - without wanting to choose - being aware about what you are, you have a possibility for releasing yourself for the dissolvent factor, which a conflict is.

When the conflict ends, the thought-activity falls to calmness, and the inexhaustible begins


The trained Philosophical Globetrotter can in herself observe how the designation happens almost at the same time as the reaction to a challenge.

The interspace - which exists between the reaction and the designation - is the observing state.

The observing state, in which you are one with the observed - where there no displacement or distortions are between the observer and the observed, but where you are in the middle of the actual - in this state there is no conflict.

The conflict is a concentration of the Ego, which places itself outside in analyses and evaluations.

But when the conflict ends, the thought-activity falls to calmness, and the inexhaustible begins.

The will is the most destructive of all


Nietzsche believed that the will - that is to say: the defeating, the remodeling, the striving - is something creative.

No, the will is the most destructive of all, in spite of the fact that it constructs very many self-images and world-images.

The will rests on lust, on desire, and not on that joy in freedom that has to do with passion and creative emptiness.

Saturday, June 24, 2017

Passion is freedom from the Ego, the centre for all lack of fulfilment



In lust (which can´t be compared with philosophical refined pleasure) there always is an ingenious form of striving – there is seeked, hunted, requested, fighted – so that you can preserve it, achieve it.

In passion there is not the slightest lack of fulfilment, and therefore there can neither be disappointment or pain.

Passion is freedom from the Ego, the centre for all lack of fulfilment.

Passion requires nothing, because it is.

There is only mutual connection with the observed when there isn´t any inner observer


Truth is coming when there is a non-linguistic presence, an observance and a love, which are without conclusions, without explanations, without words.

The inner spectator, theorist or doubter, are constructed by words, which again are manifestations of a self-image.

The Ego consists of explanations, conclusions, condemnations, justifications etc.

There is only mutual connection with the observed when there isn´t any inner observer and calculator, when you in self-forgetful way are open for, and engaged in, the observed.

Only then there is understanding, freedom from the problem.
