The mind is capable of being as intricate or as simple as is required.
Some make no distinction between - quid pro quo, tit for tat, equal and opposite reactions, and when push comes to shove – see them as synonymous. Others see each one as distinctive and different from all the others.
The mind of a genius can love simplicity more than anything, and the mind of a dysfunctional misfit can be enthralled by complexity.
Many different factors are present in each different equation/situation in the mind - -context, environment, DNA, age, sex, time of day, etc. ad infinitum
We each realize, at some level, that our own mind is subjective and easily influenced by all manner of variables.
When it comes to our perception of the mind and its thinking of another; we expect/assume/demand/require -precision and consistency . . . –In line with our own mind and thinking, and we take it for granted that communication requires this continuity of thought.
A lawyer friend of mine was wont to make his own statement of the facts and/or the law and then follow it immediately by the rhetorical question “Fair enough?”
Without pausing for any reply before proceeding to his next sentence.
Polite English SOCIETY would call that “BALDERDASH!”
In which the Buddha nature dwells
Would be still pure
With no false pride
were it not
For the senses.
The six senses
That have come into the body
Through the six sense doors
Corrupted the body
& caused it to become impure
Filled with self pride
When the body claimed the senses as I, Me, Mine.
This is how
Our originally pure Body
Became impure & corrupted.
AS ONE GOES THROUGH LIFE THE MEMORIES THAT ARE ‘TAGGED’ AS SIGNIFICANT REMAIN WITH YOU SO LONG AS YOUR BRAIN IS ALIVE
In extreme cases the form of a memory is subject to being changed by shock or other types of therapy.
Let’s theorize together
When sick people
Go to the doctors
Other than the psychiatrist
They listen to the recommendation of the doctors.
Even if the surgeon says
I will have to cut you
They let him.
But when they go to a psychiatrist
They are more likely
Not to follow
That's an interesting Karma phenomenon.
THE MOST EQUISITE RESULTS COME WHEN REALITY AND IMAGINATION ARE MASTERFULLY, & RESPECTFULLY MUTUAL
