ET US consider what thinking is.
Thinkingness is a very subtle thing,
because the part of you that thinks
is Totality and Totality is without
energy, without Matter, without
space, and without time. You just

Compare with with our accustomed identification with the body where we are used
to having impacts to let us know something
has happened. The louder the noise, the
more certainty; the bigger the shock, the
more certainty. We have identified life
with motion -- and this is correct, but the
motivating force, or the creativeness
that creates life, is without motion. You
are not alive. You are a unit of Totality that creates both motion and life,
and the body is alive only as long as it
is in motion. You, as a unit of Totality,
or spiritual being, are experiencing
life, and you are experiencing the game
of thinkingness, creating thoughts.

Aristotle anchored thinkingness onto
pages. He anchored it into symbols, into
a set pattern of rules that mankind has
identified with. Man at that moment began
to be fixed with his thinkingness on the
symbol level, and not the free, instantaneous ability to create an original

you just think it -- and it is.

We have processes that are very violent. We could ask you to think about the
effort to keep it from happening, and if
you did this for five minutes, you'd probably go into convulsions because your body
is full of recordings of this and you
would get certainty that something was

Let us consider what happens when we

yourself the right to be aware that you
are Totality. to "be still and know that
I am God " , as it says in the Bible. You
hit this stillness, emotionlessness - -and
this is the real You that is within all
things: within your body, in the walls,
and all the other bodies. At this level,
this awareness, when you think there is
no time lag, it just IS. Things will happen so fast and so suddenly and so smoothly that you will think someone else did
it. You think, ""It can't be that easy --
just think it and it is." We have struggled to make things complicated, to have
a lot of impact and a lot of force and a
lot of excitement and a lot of emotional

What have the philosophers of the past
contributed to the advanced thinking of today? In this series of articles, taken from
the taped lectures of Hardin and Joanna
Walsh in Los Angeles, they point out how the
"Concept of Totality", as they teach it today, is not entirely new
