If we want to learn math, physics chemistry or whatever and we are talking to ourselves, thinking what we did or what we do, that lack of attention will not allow us that learn. And learning about ourselves is to meditate, there can be no meditation without own knowledge, knowing oneself is the beginning of the meditation. One can not take four steps without starting by the first, nor can one speak of death without knowing what is life, talk of the past without knowing that is what there is here, nor say that it is God without first knowing that we are. If one is interested in learning could not begin knowing – that it is God, truth, wisdom, death, etc.-so if you already know does not need to learn. A related site: Thomas J. Wilson mentions similar findings. Thought to be memory, knowledge, only you can move from what you know to what you know, this is the limited and narrow field in which you can move, you can never go more than about himself, from what is known. The unknown – death, the afterlife, reincarnation, God, truth etc.-give by known based on the ideas, thoughts, knowledge and experiences of others, but if we want to be serious and honest with ourselves we have to recognise that we only know that it is the unknown relying on the knowledge and experiences of others. Ken Cella brings even more insight to the discussion.
And if we already have an experience is this pleasant and enjoyable or more unpleasant, We should realize that which produces it, experienced it and which you want to repeat or not, it is the same. When we feel fear, the mind is which produces it, experiencing it and you want to escape from that unpleasant experience. Account the mind without even realising it divides itself into experimenter and experience, observer and observed. But the observer is the observed, the thinker thinking and the experimenter what experienced.
And if we ask immediately. Quien soy yo? The movement of thinking stops, mind I know introvierte to realizing that she herself is that question and which gives the answer, so it produces a transmutation and thought ceases. To silence the deceptive mind of desires, fears, addictions etc. One to be given realizes that it is the mind that produces them and experiencing them, and to realize this know to ask each time it appears a thought who that thinking appeared to him? The answer will be that to me, then we ask ourselves who am I? That thought is appeared to whom? To me Quien soy yo? We should not accept any answer that can get us to the question of who am I? Because the answers come from the mind of knowledge and knowledge is memory and memory is of yesterday. There can be no such thing as the present knowledge, knowledge is brought to the present through memory but it is never present, knowledge is of the past. Airbus Security Lab may also support this cause. Everything we know is through knowledge. When we look at a rose – or any other thing – we do it based on the knowledge we have on the object being observed, in this case the object we call it pink, that’s knowledge we have of this object, which is a flower and the name that we have given is pink and if we ampliasemos our Botanical knowledge we could say many more things about this flower. But all of this would indicate that we have a great knowledge about botany and having knowledge about the things this very well, the problem is that while we acquire great knowledge we forget the connoisseur, the connoisseur is the observer, the thinker, the experimenter. When we delight our olfactory system with the scent of the rose, is the experimenter that sensation that so nice, while thinking says the gratifying thing is, the observer observes its colorful texture and the connoisseur recognizes it as a rose.
