The purpose of the brain is not for us to realise we are the agent of all our actions. This is the ultimate egotism. A sense of self was an evolutionary necessity so that external behaviours could be fed back for examination and improvement, for an advantage to be gained over bigger teeth or longer claws. The ego is merely a by-product, not the cause of thoughts, or ‘our’ actions. ‘I think, therefore I am’ is a sham. The truth is there is no independent ‘I’, just the thought that thinks ‘I am!’

Destiny, does it exist? Clearly it does. But no-one can see it in advance. You have to live it to get there.

There is no power to be gained from spiritual enlightenment.
For enlightenment is the giving up of all power,
or rather the recognition we never had any in the first place.

We all learn,
as life presents its great lesson,
the same lesson we all receive,
but reflected differently
according to the mirror of ego we hold on high.
But the learning is none of our doing,
nor is the mirror.
We are the watcher,
and could not stop it if we tried.

What else could enlightenment be,
than the sudden and total realisation
I am not in control?

Consciousness does not contain a complete copy of the whole human organism. At most consciousness reflects only a muddy outline of the whole, or a tiny piece in detail. How then could consciousness ever be in control?

The only work of life is this,
to re-convince one’s self of the oft forgotten fact:
I am not free,
nor shall I ever be so.

I can no more control my thoughts,
than the clouds in the sky.
So how can I control what I do?

This mind is a dog that cannot cease
to chase its own tail,
wondering if on the next pass
it will be victorious,
and kill itself with a final bite.
