I like to write. I write about anything sometimes. For example, I don't even know what this entrie will be about. I just let the pen write. And then, after a few sentences, order comes. Sometimes it starts with a few unintelligible ideas, and the entrie turns into a nice poem. Sometimes I really get to the bottom of what was on my mind and I discover something about myself. "The key, is to write", as Sean Connery would say in Finding Forester. I don't know what it is about writing that pleases me. Putting thoughts on paper makes them immediately concrete and permanent. It could also be dangerous. Thoughts are powerful things. Every action is born from a thought. I have discovered the simple hierarchy of creation.
1- Supreme Intelligence
A verbalised thought is stronger than just a thought, for the thought is reinforced and made "real". The effect of it is much stronger if it is shared with someone. Hence why buddhism focuses on thought processes. Meditation is nothing but the self conditionning of thoughts. We are capable of managing what goes on in our minds, unlike what most people think. Most of us think that we can't control our thoughts and desires. Sure, we do have natural desires, but to learn to live with them and master them so that they don't master us is entirely possible. We don't have to be the slaves of ourselves. Meditation is the exercise of free will. We are free to create what we wish, regardless of who we are or where we came from. But, then again, only a select few will actually have the strength to take advantage of this wisdom.
So watch what you think. That's a step ahead of watch what you say. The evidence is getting overwhelming for me. I have created things in my life that I realize exist only because I consciously kept the vision of what I was creating. That includes bad things and good things. The cruise contracts would be a good thing. I'll keep the bad things to myself.
This entrie has been created out of nowhere (Supreme Intelligence--which is not mine). Then it came in form of ideas which turned into concrete thoughts (which could be expresed in words) Then they were written down on paper ready to be transmitted to other minds who read them. This in turn will lead to action. I don't know what kind exactly, but hopefully positive action. And that is the hierarchy of creation. I find it fascinating. An idea is just like a seed that germinates and grows into a flower. I know it's a simple analogy, but it's the best one. There is so much to learn from watching the simple process of a flower growing. Another example would be DNA. That's why buddhists say all of life is found in the small details.
