Must an Artist Suffer?

I went to a psycho-therapist this afternoon. I realized that I don’t want anyone picking around in my psyche. I am a bright man. Blindingly bright perhaps. I don’t know anyone capable of helping me “heal”. Psychologically. Perhaps that is unfortunate. Maybe not. Established in Being, perform action. That is the formula for action. Action is what we are concerned with in our day to day life. Rest is the basis of activity.

Why is there no-one who can help me heal psychologically? Heal my mind. I don’t know if my mind needs healing. I’m very sensitive. Modern medicine, psychiatry, prescribes medicine to help people who are suffering. But modern medicine doesn’t heal. It only treats symptoms, like anxiety. Anxiety is natural. It is a natural response. The Soul makes the mind anxious when there is a threat. Stress is the threat. Fatigue is the threat.

Anxiety is the body’s reaction to a threat. The threat is perceived by the mind. Soul is the basis of the body and the mind. Soul is Existence, Being. I don’t know how individuals are created–individual souls. Atma-jiva. Being–being(s). I don’t think I’ve heard anyone explain that. Beings come from food. A being is soul, mind, and body. Soul is atma. An individual is a jiva.

Everyone is suffering. But suffering is foreign to life–foreign to God’s field.

Pain is an experience by the body or the mind. I think the soul experiences pain too, if it can’t alleviate the pain of the mind or body. The intellect decides. It decides whether to think or do this or that. The senses sense pain, of course. But pain could be subtler than the senses, if we accept the notion that there is mental pain.

Aparagya parad–the mistake of the intellect. Quitting time for today. May be continued.

WhatDoesitMean.com 1-28-18… “Trump Abandons CIA In Syria” (after which … “CNN Reports Turkey Killed Hollywood Actor Bradley Cooper”)

The original article is at http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index2481.htm I believe.

http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index2481.htm” target=”_blank” rel=”noopenerThis article is one that stood out, in that it indicates that due to the actions of Putin, Trump, and other key players, the planet is being directed away from wars, conflicts, and is, one step at a time, heading towards peace. I have no idea who is “Bradley Cooper” (and apparently he is still alive) (plus, I honestly could care less who the CIA News Network is reporting on), so I switched the title a bit, and placed the more significant part first… “Trump Abandons CIA In Syria“.

And, by the way, I just became aware that the DJT was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

As I’ve mentioned before, one reason I occasionally like to post these WhatDoesItMean.com articles is because they are extensively linked, and you may check the links for yourself.

As always, read with discernment. Please go to the original…

Three Seconds to Win! When Sport Was Honest (USSR-USA Gold Basketball, 1972 Olympics)

I wonder if the Grecian Olympics were athletic competitions between Grecian States. But competitions between political entities, whatever they are, seem to have been politicized. Politics is trying to make sense of illusion. There are art, science, commerce. Athletics would seem to be art. Trying to prove that one system of government is better than another is like trying to prove that one game is better than another. The Divine Maharishi often said that “Democracy is the worst form of government that has been tried on earth”. And He said that “Divine Monarchy is the ideal form of government”. And lest one think that ideal is not practical, I want to let you know that nothing could be farther from the truth. The ideal is the only thing that will produce the desired results. Less than ideal will always be less than practical. The means are the end in the making. If you try to create a statue from iron, it will rust. Gold only will be of value in the field of values. There was a time when it was generally believed that, “It isn’t whether you win or lose, but how you play the game that counts”. Those who participate in any game who don’t know the truth of that principle, will only suffer from playing the game. Those who know the truth of that principle, know that games are art forms and how can one fail if one does one’s best. Why do we keep score, then? I haven’t thought about it. Ask me next time we meet.

Warning! You may be shocked and may not believe your eyes at what you’ll see below. It may even turn your entire perception upside down, but keep reading!

Recently we’ve discussed what the sport has turned into in the past 20 or so years: REPORT: Dirty Geopolitics of Olympics and Globalism – Will Russia Say NO and Start Alternative Games? In that report, of December 18, 2017, I said ‘Big sport, simply put, equals the following: big money, big business and big showbiz‘. There is no fairness and no hope of justice in sport at this time in our common reality. Pretty depressing, right?

For someone who grew up with the old ideals of sport it’s hard to watch the mockery and a farce it has become. But I really wanted to have something positive and hopeful with which to #Jumpstart2018, and I found this gem.

True, there may be…
