Excerpt About Freedom

The Fixed Perspective of the Mind

In some sense, recognizing Total Being, which we will be exploring more as we go along, both simplifies our understanding and throws a wrench into it. And throwing a wrench in whatever understanding that we have at the moment is part of my purpose. So I am challenging the mind, which is so habituated toward finding someplace to stand and say, “That’s it!” And the freedom of Total Being frequently allows that; spiritual realization and enlightenment means landing in some particular awakened experience or condition. However, that is so only for the moment. The mind’s fixed perspective is to expect whatever realization we are experiencing to extend into the next moment. But Total Being is free and might manifest itself the next moment as something totally different.
