The master manifests Reality, while Reality manifests him.

Human importance.

Unless you hold something above and before yourself, your self will be held more important than the entire world.

Everybody generalizes.

"Quite a good prayer, unselfish too", he told the Sunday Times. "It is a sort of acknowledgment of God, just in case there happens to be one."

Control.

Those who try to control other people soon find that they've become the enemy of said people.

You aged hippies are all stuck in a rut: all those old people you hated, back in your youth: well, now you are them.

The Gates of Eden.

"At times, I think, there are no words, but these, to tell what's true:
There are no truths, outside The Gates of Eden."

Bob Dylan.

Arlo Guthrie does a surprisingly good job of playing it, with the help of a slide-guitar...

"Of war and peace the truth just twists
Its curfew gull just glides
Upon four-legged forest clouds
The cowboy angel rides
With his candle lit into the sun
Though its glow is waxed in black
All except when 'neath the trees of Eden

The lamppost stands with folded arms
Its iron claws attached
To curbs 'neath holes where babies wail
Though it shadows metal badge
All and all can only fall
With a crashing but meaningless blow
No sound ever comes from the Gates of Eden

The savage soldier sticks his head in sand
And then complains
Unto the shoeless hunter who's gone deaf
But still remains
Upon the beach where hound dogs bay
At ships with tattooed sails
Heading for the Gates of Eden

With a time-rusted compass blade
Aladdin and his lamp
Sits with Utopian hermit monks
Side saddle on the Golden Calf
And on their promises of paradise
You will not hear a laugh
All except inside the Gates of Eden

Relationships of ownership
They whisper in the wings
To those condemned to act accordingly
And wait for succeeding kings
And I try to harmonize with songs
The lonesome sparrow sings
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden

The motorcycle black Madonna
Two-wheeled gypsy queen
And her silver-studded phantom cause
The gray flannel dwarf to scream
As he weeps to wicked birds of prey
Who pick up on his bread crumb sins
And there are no sins inside the Gates of Eden

The kingdoms of experience
In the precious wind they rot
While paupers change possessions
Each one wishing for what the other has got
And the princess and the prince
Discuss what's real and what is not
It doesn't matter inside the Gates of Eden

The foreign sun, it squints upon
A bed that is never mine
As friends and other strangers
From their fates try to resign
Leaving men wholly, totally free
To do anything they wish to do but die
And there are no trials inside the Gates of Eden

At dawn my lover comes to me
And tells me of her dreams
With no attempts to shovel the glimpse
Into the ditch of what each one means
At times I think there are no words
But these to tell what's true
And there are no truths outside the Gates of Eden."


Self

You can't grab your own hands; you can't (directly) see your own eyes; you can't bite your own teeth. But you know you have hands, eyes, teeth.

So we can't know ourselves, the way we know other things. You are part of reality, and reality knows itself, so you can know reality. To know yourself, you have to know yourself the way reality knows itself. Which means knowing that you are reality.

Descartes just barely missed this one. Just barely. Poor fellow.
