To Be Yourself Requires Extraordinary Intelligence
To be oneself demands extraordinary intelligence. You are that very intelligence; none need give it; none can take it away from you. The one who lets that expression manifest itself in its own manner is a ‘Natural’ man, the Mighty Stoned Ape.
Otiose is every action to relate my description to the manner in which you maybe functioning. When you shall stop the comparison inwardly and outwardly, what shall remain is your Natural State. You, then, would reject all thought and empty the mind of the “known” without action, without thought, without cause.
The acausalness of this enterprise is the manifestation of the wholly other. The so-called self-realization is the discovery of yourself, for yourself, and by yourself that there is no “self” to discover. It happens, and it happens without cause, without reason, and without justification. There is nothing you can do to bring this out. Any action you take will only ever further you from your true Nature.
This alone will demolish every nerve ending, every single cell, even the marrow in your bones; burn and evaporate the wild river in your veins. It will come as a cosmic blow that will shatter your being. This towering mountain will come crashing down on you with tremendous force. There is no self. There is no individual here. There is nothing. Just an alien within the monkey; the Intelligence of the cosmos; the story of the Universe.
This body and every single cell that comprises it, is not interested in you or your thoughts. Every single cells wishes only to survive and reproduce. The only thing that the organism wants to do is survive and reproduce; eat and fuck in the crudest of terms. It is NEVER interested in anything you have to say or do. That is the conflict.
Your body does not care about you. It does not need you. Becuase everything you are is given to you by culture and society. But you are the intelligence of the Universe, and that can neither be given or taken away. So the body really doesn’t care about what culture and society have given you and put into you. It only cares about what it cares about, which has nothing to do w/ you.
Let your body take over for once. Let it guide you. Stop fighting.
